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.
Highlights

  • Unique guest rooms with fireplaces and free continental breakfast delivered daily
  • Complimentary afternoon wine and cheese reception at Spindrift Inn
  • Directly on McAbee Beach
  • Italian dining on-site with many restaurants within walking distance
  • Central along Cannery Row, a few blocks from the aquarium

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.
Features
As an oceanfront boutique hotel, the smoke-free Spindrift Inn treats its guests well, from the doorman to valet parking (fees apply). Walk to the wharf, downtown Monterey, the aquarium or Pacific Grove. Return in the afternoon to enjoy a hosted wine and cheese reception, featuring local, award-winning wines along with freshly brewed coffee and tea. Book an in-room massage, pick up a complimentary newspaper or head to the world-famous 17-Mile Drive nearby.

Highly Recommend this Hotel!!

Great, friendly, attentive staff. Loved the continental breakfast that was included.. delivered to your room with the paper. Wood burning fire place. Great view and right on the ocean front. Located on Cannery row; walking distance to main attractions, food, fun!

Great place to stay

Stopped here with my husband driving down the coast. Had lunch in Carmel, but was happy to stay in Monterey (not as pricey). Spindrift was a great experience. Ask for an ocean view room

Restful, beautiful, exceptional value.

Restful, beautiful, exceptionally clean and comfortable rooms with fireplaces, and we had an ocean view, which was actually right on the ocean! All of the staff was extremely courteous, cordial, and very helpful. Wine & cheese in the afternoons was great! Met very nice folks from all over America. The Inn is right in the heart of Cannery Row within walking distance to everything including the Monterey Bay Aquarium (3-5 minutes). Never used our car (valet parking is wonderful). Would highly recommend the Spindrift Inn to anyone and we will definitely return!

Lovely Corner Rooms

We had a 4th floor corner room with windows and window seats on two walls that overlooked Monterey Bay. They serve breakfast in bed each morning though your only option for eggs are 'boiled' - it is otherwise a nice touch. They also have wine and cheese at 4:00 p.m. The hotel was being remodeled while we were there - so there was some noise - but surprisingly we could hear the banging more from the lobby than in our room. The location on Canery Row in Monterey - walking distance from the acquarium and a number of restuarants is lovely. Asking about the French Bistro just two blocks up the hill from the Acquarium - it worth a walk. Valet parking at $16 a day is not cheap - but does include unlimited in/out privileges. It wasn't quite cold enough to light the fireplace but the room was still very romantic.

The Fishhopper resturant - and is just next door - starbucks a block away and another coffess shop 2 blocks away - a bicycle rental place a block away - and the bikes were much nicer than what you get in San Francisco.

cozy place to stay

This was our second visit to the Spindrift Inn, we had stayed there 9 years ago on our honey moon. It is still a nice cozy place to stay. Our room had a fireplace and a sauna facing cannery rd. (spring for the ocean side we had that the first stay it's nice to fall asleep to the sound of the ocean) They bring you breakfast in the morning to your room it's very good. It was under a little constuction at this time but not a problem.
