The Spindrift Inn was absolutely lovely. Our 3rd floor corner room, with wood-burning fireplace, expansive windows on two sides and feather bed, was beautiful and cozy, the in-room continental breakfast was excellent, the staff professional and courteous, and the location unbeatable. The 3-star rating really does not do the Spindrift Inn justice. We loved it.
My wife and I had two days and one night to spend in the Monterey area. I did my usual due diligence on TripAdvisor and decided that we would stay at the Spindrift Inn. From the moment we arrived, we knew we had made the right choice. The valet was there waiting for us when we pulled up in our car. He was very pleasant and helpful and directed us into the main entrance. The lobby was a good size and was very comfortable. We approached the main desk ( and it is a desk) and were warmly greeted. It took several minutes to check in and then we were guided to the elevator to up to the third floor. We entered our room and immediately felt right at home.
My wife and I just completed a 2,000 miles road trip in California to celebrate our 39th wedding anniversary. Our trip covered San Diego, 2 national parks, Monterey Peninsula, Santa Barbara, Laguna Beach and back to San Diego. The Spindrift Inn was our most enjoyable accommodation. We were hoping for a cross between a luxury hotel and bed and breakfast. That's exactly what we experienced! In addition, we treated ourselves to ocean-front room. It was on the 3rd floor so we slept with the windows opened the two nights we stayed here. It's amazing to be lulled to sleep listening to the splashing of the waves. There is also a small alcove where you can sit or even slumber with a blanket wrapped around you to warm up from the fresh ocean wind. Real natural wood is provided to light up your in-room fireplace.
Nice small hotel, very cozy, with beautiful view, service is quite good, steps away from the beach and just 5 minutes away from the Monterey aquarium, I love the fireplace in the room, but toomuch smoke...
If I could give this hotel 6 stars I would. It was the most delightful hotel experience I have ever had! First the location is perfect. It is right on the water on Cannery Row. There is a courtyard next to the hotel with a fountain and benches with a view of the ocean that is to die for. You can also go down to the beach. We found shells and sea glass. You might even spot an otter. But back to the hotel. We were greeted by the happiest valet I have ever met. We were check in promptly and headed to our room. Our room was so quaint. There was a fireplace and we had a cannery row view. It was plenty of room for the two of us and also had a keurig in the room. Every morning you have your breakfast delivered to your room by a super friendly staff. It was very nice to eat breakfast by the fire and relax. I would recommend this hotel to anyone and everyone. Worth every penny. The staff was by far the friendliest I have ever met and they bend over backwards to accommodate you. It is seriously the best hotel I have ever been to. We loved it!
