Spindrift Inn

3.5 out of 5.0

Recent guest reviews

Continental breakfast brought to your room is a nice touch. It was better than going to the lobby, but no tables or place to comfortably eat in the room!

On Cannery Row, two blocks from the Aquarium. Nice beach with quite a bit of sea glass

Cozy oceanview room #405. Our favorite place to stay in Monterey!

Amazing view! Amazing stay! this is mine and my boyfriend favorite place to stay.

Great hotel and staff! The location couldn't be beat, we loved the wood burning fire place and windows that opened to ocean. Will come back again and stay. (only gave a 4 because some of the furniture in the room could be refinished or touched up easily) Thank you for a great anniversary get a way!

Tacky just okay hotel in Monterey. Stay somewhere else and save your money.

Beautiful views of the ocean and cannery row. Hotel is well maintained and the amenities are excellent. Staff is friendly and helpful. Monterey Aquarium is right down the street, a 5 minute walk.

This hotel was in a great location. The staff was very nice. They were very accommodating and made my family and I feel very welcome. We will definitely stay here again.

The hotel room is charming and very clean. Staff was excellent very helpful and accommodating

The hotel is older, but you will be pleasantly surprised with the comfort of the rooms, and the excellent customer service. It's in a great location; you can walk to all of the Cannery Row attractions.

The hotel itself was not bad. But we were staying here for our anniversary and we're hoping for a romantic peaceful stay. We were places in a room that was the closest to the construction across the street. I'm not sure if there's no laws for noise restrictions in Monterey. But we were waken up by construction at 5 am. We tried to close the windows for some peace but it was still loud and it made the room very stuffy. Also the view doenthw partial ocean view was not worth the extra money. The hotel did have a nice happy hour with wine and cheese in the lobby. The complimentary breakfast is delivered to your room which is very nice and convenient. But the food was not great. Very bland and cold. Overall, disappointed and would not recommend. Not until the area construction is complete anyways.

The room was perfect....overlooking Canary Row was fun to sit in the window seat and look out over the action below. Our room was very comfortable and really enjoyed the fireplace in the evening. Staff was the most courteous I've had in a long time and my husband and I stay at 3+ stars and above only. We enjoyed the continental breakfast being delivered to our room, so as not to have to rush to get dressed just to go down for a tray of food. The wine reception was fantastic and we were impressed with the recommendation from your staff to feel free to go up to the rooftop and watch the ocean while having wine, cheese and crackers. We will DEFINATELY be back!

Perfect view,location and staff! The room was very romantic and you felt like you were at home instead of a hotel. We hated to leave and will definitely be back!

The Spindrift is a smaller and older hotel on the beach. But where it lacks in modern furnishings, and overall "look" it makes up for by way of hospitality. Upon check in, the front desk associate sat with us for a little bit and recommended restaurants, excursions, etc. I thought this was very nice as we didn't even have to ask, he just provided the information. We sprung for the beach front room - the windows opened directly over the beach. It was gorgeous. The hotel provides binoculars for you to be able to see the wildlife - very cool. There also was a fireplace in our room which we lit at night and opened the windows to hear the waves crashing. Every day, from 4-6 the hotel provides wine and cheese in the lobby for free, we would enjoy this prior to getting ready to go to dinner. Each morning, they provide complimentary continental breakfast for free which is delivered to your room. This was an awesome time saver in the morning and an overall great perk. I cannot say enough wonderful things about this hotel. It's absolutely lovely.

Good experience, well lit room , big windows , nice breakfast included

Hotel staff was friendly and helpful. Rooms were big and clean. Location on cannery row close to the aquarium is excellent. I felt good staying in this hotel

This is located just down from the aquarium in a great location overlooking the water. Despite having the room right next to the check-in desk, it couldn't have been nicer. Highly recommend getting the ocean view room, awesomeview and soothing sounds if sleeping with the window open. Staff was great, breakfast delivered to the room is a nice perk. Would definitely recommend staying here.

The room was amazing! An ocean view is a must! The hotel has great access to everything!
