I would give more than 5 stars if I could. Spindrift inn is in reed the most romantic hotel in Monterey. Large room, elegant furnitures, the most beautiful and comfortable bed I ever sleep on, sitting area beside window, Luxurious marble bathroom with formal tasteful Decorated shower curtain . After a whole day travel, sitting in from of the real wood fireplace and have a couple of wine. More amazing experience keep coming, after a good night sleep, tray served hot and delicious breakfast delivered to your room with real plates , coffee cups and napkins. All the amazing little details make the stay so memorable. I would recommend this hotel to anybody. Because it makes you feel you are the very lucky person .

Every shop, restaurant, and tourist attraction, including Monterey Bay Aquarium is within walking distance. But, breakfast on a silver tray, a fireplace, and a window seat overlooking the bay mean you don't even need to leave your room

Room tip: with an ocean view king room you will never hear anything except the surf.

I was a bit surprised that a hotel adjacent to the Monterey Bay Aquarium would be burning wood in fireplaces, when almost everyone these days has a clean-burning gas fireplace. Unsurprisingly, a smoke alarm went off every evening. Even when an alarm wasn't beeping, a strong smoke smell permeated the entire hotel.
Maybe the mattress was intended to be old-fashioned, with a feather-filled pad on top of a hard spring mattress. Unfortunately, every day the maid piled the feathers high into the middle of the bed. The first night, I kept rolling out of bed, because of the high center. After that, I remade the bed every evening, so that the feathers did not make a huge hill in the center.
It was nice having breakfast delivered every morning. It consisted of fruit, hard-boiled eggs, whole-grain toast, yogurt, cold cereal, muffins, orange juice, and coffee. A door-hanger menu allows customers to check off the items desired for breakfast, along with what time it is to be served. Be sure to write your room number on your menu every night, as housekeeping does not note the room numbers when they collect the menus.
Front-desk staff was lovely and patient, definitely a highlight of the hotel. Rooms were large and spacious, with double-paned windows throughout. Our room faced the street, and we had no problem with noise.
Behind the hotel is a small beach, suitable for children. Be sure to see the nearby remains of the laboratory of Edward F. Ricketts, the famous "Doc" from Steinbeck's "Cannery Row".
From the rooftop garden, there is a beautiful view of the bay. Be sure to ask for a pair of binoculars from the front desk.

We loved everything about this hotel the location, amenities, staff, breakfast, wood burning fire place and comfortable bed. I would highly recommend this hotel. Our room faced Cannery Row the noise level was fine. Our friends had a balcony which we really enjoyed drinking our morning coffee at. Their room also had a pretty big sauna in the bathroom.
