Named after John B. McAbee, McAbee Beach was once the site of Monterey's bustling Chinatown where the canning and fishing industries reigned. Restauranteur, Maen Chang Wu, later built a three story hotel along McAbee Beach. After the fall of the canning industry, Cannery Row was abandoned until John Steinbeck's novel, Cannery Row, spurred increased interest in restoring the historic street.
In the 1980s, the Spindrift Inn became one of the more important sites of the Cannery Row renaissance. It opened in 1985 as the Spindrift Inn, replacing the old Ocean View Hotel. Today, the Spindrift Inn offers charm, and an intimate ambiance along the Monterey coastline.
