I was fortunate to spend one night at the Spindrift Inn on Cannery Row in Monterey. The hotel has the cozy feel of a "Boutique Hotel". The lobby is comfortably appointed with a large welcoming fireplace. I had a lovely Ocean front room complete with Gas fireplace. I chose a room on the ground floor, because it had larger windows for the view. The windows open so you can listen to the surf, right below the hotel. There is a small beach and the view is across the Monterey Bay-beautiful! There were binoculars in the room so you can look for otters and other ocean mammals or get a closer look at boats going by. Rooms were clean and well appointed, very comfortable bedding. There was a nice wine a cheese reception in the afternoon, a great time to mingle with other guests. The Hotel staff were welcoming, friendly and helpful. The location is right on Cannery row, very convenient for restaurants, shopping and the Aquarium. I can't speak to the noise level for rooms on the Cannery Row side of the building, but on the bay side there was no noise from the street when I was there (although it was a winter week night). Room service is available and a Continental breakfast served in the room is included with your stay. The only drawback, which is inherent to the location, is the parking, you can park at meters on the street, pay a steep fee to valet park you car or self park in a garage in the area. I would choose the Spindrift Inn again on a return visit to Monterey
