We stayed at the Spindrift Inn for two nights and thoroughly enjoyed the inn and all that Monterey had to offer. The Spindrift exceeded our expectations and fully deserves a five star review! We arrived at the end of the annual car rally on the Saturday so the access was chaotic. However, the Spindrift had stationed a valet at the... More

Stayed at the Spindrift Inn the weekend of 9/10/11. Had a beautifully decorated room facing Cannery row. Comfortable bed and great shower! Breakfast in the room was a special treat. WARNING: This hotel does not have air conditioning but there are fans and windows.

Really enjoyed this place...one of the nicest rooms, location we've ever had. Within walking distance to most everything; a short drive to Carmel and surrounding towns as well as Big Sur. Staff was very helpful. We picked this place based in part on Trip Advisor and every so often would see a negative review. Well, after being here to experience... More

Spent 2 nights here as part of our 10 day Cali trip. They allowed an early check in and parked our car. They gave us a nice room with vaulted ceilings, a fire place and ocean view (well we paid for that part). The view is great and waking up to seals and seaguls is just awesome. The ocean sounds...

We stayed at the Spindrift for two nights during a fortnight's holiday travelling south on the PCH in Sept '11. It's a beautiful hotel and we loved everything about it! We had an ocean view King room which had an amazing view of the ocean from its window seat and we appreciated the binoculars provided in the room. The cosy... More

Early September we were in final legs of our Californian roadtrip and came to Monterey. Having not booked, we were not entirely sure how but we managed to come across the Spindrift Inn by an accident. Although the cost was not low, it was relatively good compared to other coastal Inns. We absolutely loved the location just in the middle... More

Loved this hotel, was a fantastic base to explore Monterey. Close to everything in town yet still very quiet. Rooms were large, comfortable quiet. Service was great with good recommendations given. Lovely spot for a romantic weekend.

My husband and I stayed one night at the Spindrift Inn in one of their Cannery Row balcony rooms. The room was so spacious, the layout was perfect.

My wife and I recently stayed here while on a California vacation. We wanted a luxury hotel and were not disappointed with the Spindrift.
