“Elope in Style!!”
Reviewed 14 June 2014

My husband and I chose this hotel to spend our week long elopement at this amazing boutique hotel. This establishment is more than a hotel, it's more like a bed and breakfast. We were there in December and it was PERFECT! The days had a high in the high 60's and the low's were in the 40's in the evenings. The fireplace was ALWAYS burning with the fresh wood that was provided for us and breakfast in bed is a MUST! I will say that the best part about staying at this establishment was hearing the sea lions bark right outside our window and seeing sea otters surface randomly. All in all, an incredible experience with a very friendly staff!

We had a wonderful stay at the Spindrift. The staff is very friendly and helpful. The wine and cheese reception was a nice touch as was the in room breakfast. Our room was clean and the fireplace was a nice addition. The ocean front room is worth every penny! What a view! Our next trip to Monterey will include the Spindrift Inn on cannery row.

Room Tip: Spend the extra on the Bay view!

As per other reviews.
Very nice but not great value.
Continental breakfast served in room included in price. Would prefer to pay less and go out for real warm breakfast
Great to be able to open window and experience fresh air and sounds of waves

Room Tip: The more you pay the better the room

I am so glad to have picked Spindrift! The hotel was romantic & perfect! And the location was near EVERYTHING. The ocean view from our King size bedroom was breathtaking! The entire STAFF was AMAZING and welcoming, especially Renae & Cody at the front desk & Juliette the hostess. Thank you everyone!!

Room Tip: We stayed in a King size bedroom. The room was quite, clean, and romantic. Perfect for couples, solo...

Green Features: The hotel ambiance was so charming and the decor was of European style at its best. The location was PERFECT..two blocks walking distance from the Aquarium, restaurants on the same block and a convenient trolly stop (free ride) by the front hotel. Perfect pick, Carmen L, RN

My wife and I just returned from a very pleasant two night stay at the Spindrift Inn. We booked through AAA, so, we didn't know where our room would be. Renae, at the front desk, gave us a wonderful corner room facing Cannery Row with a peek of the bay from our window. The room was large, with a King bed, fireplace, sitting area, flat screen TV and nice bathroom. Wine and cheese is served in the lobby from 4:30 to 6:00 and breakfast is brought to your room. You can take your wine to the top of the hotel and have a panoramic view of the bay and Santa Cruz in the distance. Thanks again to Renae, Jeff, Cody, Mike, Rick, and pretty Juliette, our wine server, for making our stay at the Inn a memorable one!

We stayed in Monterey for 2 nights as part of a 2 week trip from the UK, including San Francisco, Monterey & the Big Sur & the Spindrift Inn was just wonderful.

Our corner room on the 3rd floor looking out onto the Bay was beautiful, comfortable, clean with probably thee most comfortable, feather bed I've ever slept in...you just melt into it! Struggled getting up in the mornings!

The views for our large corner window meant our first afternoon was spent lazing in our dressing gowns, sipping complimentary wine whilst watching the variety of ocean wildlife below us, including 2 incredibly playful otters & countless sea lions. We even had a squadron of pelicans perform a fly-by, which was very special. As the kelp forests are within view, you get to see all sorts all throughout the day & evening!

The continental breakfast in our room was 'ok' but nothing too amazing, but with plenty of eateries & places to get coffee nearby, it wasn't a problem. Having Ghiradelli's right next door was also very handy!!

We lit the fire twice whilst visiting, which was a nice touch as we sat back in the comfy arm chairs to watch a film on our first night.

All amenities & attractions are within easy walking distance so it's location couldn't be better! Valet parking was very handy too!

An absolute must place to stay if you come to stay in Monterey & pay the extra for a sea view room...will give you hours of relaxing entertainment from the comfort of your dressing gown (especially with the complimentary binoculars!). All the staff are very friendly - nothing is too much trouble.

What a spectacular review! Thank you so much for taking the time to post your comments. We are absolutely delighted to hear that you had such an enjoyable and memorable experience from check in to check out. It is true, once you have slept in our beds you will not want to get up. Not to worry, our breakfast delivery team will help you soak up extra time in the comforts of your room. We are very lucky to have the beautiful Monterey Bay as the backdrop to our property, where our guests can relax with a glass a wine and enjoy a variety of ocean life. We hope that all of our guests get to enjoy Monterey as you did. We look forward to welcoming you back very soon!

Sincerely,

Management of the Inns of Monterey

I picked the Spindrift Inn thought it looked romantic. And I was right!
A very nice hotel, Clean,comfortable,good location, Nice amenities .
4 o'clock wine & cheese , breakfast in bed, valet parking,fireplaces.
All and all a great weekend.
Spend the extra bucks get the ocean front room.

P.s. If you don't care for the smell of burning wood get a room with a gas fireplace.
Even when not in use the smell of wood burning remains.

Room Tip: Oceanfront
