Lovely room and view of the Bay. Very convenient to food and shopping. Room service from Lalla next door was excellent. Gave us time to visit longer with family not having to travel around. Most activity within easy walking distance. Great Valet Service.

Amazing!! We loved our stay here. The room was beautiful, clean and very romantic. We were pleasantly surprised that there was a sauna in our room. The balcony is lovely and the fireplace made it that much more gorgeous. This was one of our favorite stays at a any hotel!! I highly recommend this hotel and we be back for sure!

My husband & I have stayed at the Spindrift a couple of times over the years. The first about 30 years ago! We love the location- downtown Monterey right on the water. We always bhas a window seat that overlooks the kelp beds. Gasweekend after not having been here for a number of years.They used to bring to your room a hot breakfast that you ordered the night before. They also offered wine in the afternoon. Unfortunately both are gone now- not sure if it's Covid or cost cutting. They still bring breakfast but is continental with cereal in little containers. (The fresh fruit was good though). The room still had the windowseat but the restook a room right on the water which of it just looked tired and in need an update. Torn furniture fireplaces and old world charm furniture add to the atmosphere. We stayed Easter , soiled footstool- just needs some TLC. Maybe you can't go back to a wonderful experience from earlier but this place could definitely use some attention and $ from management. The bones are still there just needs the attention!

We are happy to announce we have several projects in progress; one of which is, we are working on a model room to include: all new paint, floor refinishing, new chairs, and all fabrics, which will enhance the overall look and feel of the Spindrift Inn.

Loved our room and the view of Cannery Row. Feels like a cozy bed and breakfast and enjoyed the gas fireplace. Great location, plenty of shops and restaurants to pick from and just a short walk away to fisherman's wharf for more shopping and dining options.

Spindrift Inn 652 Cannery Row, Monterey, CA 93940-1021 This is a very quaint older hotel located on Cannery Row. Yes, the same Cannery row that is the title of a John Steinbeck book. It sits right on the ocean. I will start as I do with all my reviews. I do this to assist the travelers to make good choices with all the information possible. I also want to share the information with the owners and managers of the places reviewed so that they can run the best business possible. To start with they were beginning a remodel as we were leaving. They are taking advantage of the Covid closure and said they were remodeling. I know that the last night we stayed we saw them hauling out the old mattresses. We were also told that the beds were being replaced. I honestly slept like a baby but would love to see the curtains over the bed go away. The Spindrift Inn is old and dated. My wife called it quaint and slightly aged. She also referred to it as European and Victorian. I am confused about which of those are accurate, but we both agreed that it is in desperate need of updating and cleaning. Remember I am very picky about hotels. The first thing I noticed was that the room is small, and it was musty. Next were the dirty floors and the Victorian style things (curtains) hanging above the bed. Musty I figure is because it sits on the ocean and I have some grace for that. If you want a good ocean view you will have to pay for it. The front desk refused an upgrade because I was a “long Term” stay (6 nights). They did give me a corner room on the 3rd floor. It had a partial ocean view which was very partial but a true statement. I did get to leave the window open and hear the ocean at night. It was very nice. Most of the windows are painted shut, but there was a nice window seat. I wont waste too much time with the curtains over the bed because they are removing them. Smart move. I even tried to kill a spider that just found its way back into the curtains hanging above my head at night. Yuck! The Hardwood Floors are beautiful but need to be refinished. They were scuffed and very dirty. The room over all just needs a fresh coat of paint and a good cleaning. There were two nice chairs and a footrest, but again they were completely filthy. There is a gas fireplace that was a great touch and nice to sit by in the evening. Oh, before I forget…The management has to do something with the heater controls! It was confusing! We had a good laugh when it came off the wall and the batteries flew out, but it was frustrating to say the least. It is also programmable. The programable part is horrible as someone set this thing to heat when I did not want it too and freeze us out the rest of the time. You need to put in a simple thermostat switch. I do not believe that there is air conditioning since it sits on the ocean. I would like to see all of the windows fixed so that they open and I could get a nice breeze flowing threw the room. The continental breakfast was delivered daily and wonderful. The lady that delivered it was so sweet early in the morning and the food was very fresh. During our stay we had fresh fruit, toast, coffee, juice, hard boiled eggs, and cheese. All the food was fresh and delivered right on time. We filled out a card and hung on the door each night. There was not daily room cleaning due to Covid restrictions, but they gave me a trash bag and towels every couple of days. They told me to leave the trash outside the door and they were very good about keeping the halls cleared of food trays and trash. The staff at the Spindrift Inn are very friendly and accommodated any of our needs. I even had my son come to the hotel and they were gracious enough to park his truck for the hour he was visiting. There is a valet only parking and there is a pretty high charge for that daily. Make sure you account for that in the total room fees. There is a fridge that is very small and no microwave! Overall, the hotel is in a great location, has great staff, and it appears they are going to clean and remodel. I will be back to see how it turns out. I would recommend asking for a remodeled room and pay for the ocean view. I hope that they paint the whole place and refinish the floors. We also ate at the attached restaurant Lalla Oceanside Grill and it was great. I will review that separately. Here are my ratings. Remember 5 is the best. Location 5 stars, Cleanliness 3 stars, Friendly Staff 5 stars, Breakfast 4 stars, Value for the price 4 stars, overall rating 4 stars.
