Romance on the beach, in the heart of Cannery Row
Cozy and classic, the time-honored Spindrift Inn rests peacefully in the heart of Cannery Row offering intimate ambiance directly on the beach. After renovations, the distinctive lobby welcomes guests with a sit-down check-in. Relax in wingback armchairs surrounded by Oriental carpets, antiques, original artwork and the warmth of a wood-burning lobby fireplace. Enjoy an Italian meal at Paradiso Trattoria on the first floor or savor ocean views from the rooftop garden. A continental breakfast arrives to each unique guest room on a silver tray.

Rooms
Even with so much to do in Monterey, the 45 charming, European-style rooms at Spindrift Inn make it tempting to stay put. In each unique room, hardwood floors, wood-burning fireplaces and view-laden window seats mix with marble bathrooms, a minibar, CD player and iPod docking station. Guests feel pampered and comfortable in classic accommodations with a touch of romance. Bathrobes, Aveda products and nightly turn-down service complement luxurious, goose-down bedding. Drift off to sounds of the gently crashing waves to find a complimentary continental breakfast delivered on a silver tray each morning. The window seats at Spindrift Inn look out to the ocean or bustling Cannery Row.

Most romantic hotel in Monterey

My wife and I celebrated our first anniversary weekend here while in Monterey. The hotel is right in the heart of the Cannery Row (doesn't get any better) of Monterey. The staff is extremely friendly and it's very clean everywhere. The brought-in breakfast is awesome. It's the most romantic place in Monterey!

Fantastic hotel, service was top shelve.

The hotel gives you more than they advertise. A continental breakfast, afternoon wine tasting with trays fruit and cheeses. Or a great cup of coffee. A nice "afternoon pick me up".

Romantic and perfect location

The hotels was in the perfect location...right in the center of cannery row! We were able to park the car for the entire weekend and walk to all of our destination; the wharf, downtwon, the aquarium, and pacific grove. That is what this trip very enjoyable and relaxing...no parking hassles or fighting traffic.

Unexpectantly Awesome!

The Hotel is a cute boutique Hotel located right on Cannery Row. Everything is within walking distance. The staff were very courteous and wanted to ensure everything was attended too. Free wine and cheese in the evening, complimentary breakfast in Bed!! Wow! Not only was the view great, it had a fireplace and a Sauna with Teek wood, nice. Will definitely stay again.

Great location and service

Staff is friendly, rooms are very clean, and wood burning fire place is great. The only thing that I would suggest is free wireless internet service. They have internet available but there is a charge to connect to it.

Money-saving tip: Short walk from hotel

Use the discount coupons that are given to you when you check in. There are some coupons for the shops and resturants in the area that will save you some money. Bring a lot of change if you plan on parking on the street for the parking meters.

Nice rooms, not the best location

The hotel itself was quite nice. The room was wonderful - comfortable bed, nice amenities, fireplace, flat screen TV. The hotel is on Cannery Row, which is very loud in the morning (delivery trucks etc.) and very, very loud at night on the weekends. There are two bars in the area that have live music playing until 1:00 or 2:00 a.m. We discovered that there is no noise ordinance on Cannery Row so the bands can play as loud as they like. And did they! My husband and I enjoy live music and actually went to listen to one of the bands for a couple of hours. However, the music played until almost 2:00 a.m. and our room was directly across the street. If you plan to stay here, I suggest getting a waterfront room so you don't have to deal with the noise.

Great location!

My husband and I stayed here one night and have nothing bad/negative to say about it. From the staff, the comfortable rooms with sauna, the rooftop deck, free wine hour and the central location on Cannery Row, it was perfect. I have never stayed on a bed so comfortable and soft in a hotel room. There are plenty of restaurants up and down the main strip and we definitely plan on returning here. Thank you Spindrift!
