Reviewed 22 July 2014

Stayed here about 10 years back and loved it then, and it is still a wonderful place to stay and come home rested and relaxed. This place is so comfy it is just like sleeping at home...awesome bed and pillows. Well designed rooms and clean. We stayed on the second floor balcony room, streetside. Open the doors and you hear all the sounds of daily life. Close the doors, it is so quiet and a pleasure to take an undisturbed late afternoon nap. The price is a bit higher than our regular hotel budget, but it is worth it! We arrived early 1.30 pm, checked in, left our luggage with the front desk, valet parked our car, and we left to have a wonderful lunch. At 2.30 the front desk called and informed us our room was ready and our luggage was in our room. Perfect! Checkout the next day was 12 noon. We left our car in the hands of the hotels valet parking for the rest of the day while we had lunch and shopped on Cannery Row. We returned back to the hotel picked up our car and headed home, no extra parking fees. We'll be back!

Room Tip: All the rooms are well kept and clean, perfect services, great location.

Everything about the hotel was nice, until you wanted to sleep. Then the loud hard rock music started, at 9pm, and lasted until midnight. It was VERY loud in the room, with the windows closed and the drapes drawn. So loud, sleep was out of the question. I put on a CD of soft music to cover up the noise, but couldn't hear it over the loud rock.

They had an odd item in their checkin documentation, that if you left before you registered departure date, you paid for it anyway. Now I know why -- anyone would leave after the first night; if they could.

We are very appreciative of you taking the time to respond to our survey regarding your most recent stay at the Spindrift Inn. Comments from our guests are extremely important to us, as they provide our best opportunity to improve ourselves.

We were disappointed to find out that your stay was not entirely wonderful. Cannery row is a very vibrant environment and we are very sorry that the noise created a less than restful evening. In 2013, we did install double pane windows to create a more comfortable environment for our guests. Additionally, we employ on site security that are typically proactive about responding should they foresee noise from surrounding businesses going on beyond reasonable limits. They will initiate contact with the nearby businesses to resolve the noise disturbances. We are very sorry that there wasn’t any intervention earlier regarding the excessive noise that you encountered. We will certainly review with our onsite security team to try to prevent future disturbances.

Thank you again for your honest feedback, as it is vital to our continued improvement. We truly hope that you will consider returning to the Spindrift Inn, so that we might show you how dedicated we are to providing a wonderful Monterey experience.

Sincerely,
Management of the Inns of Monterey

All the rooms have gas fired, wood burning fireplaces. We upgraded to an ocean view room. Very comfortable and nicely furnished. Window seat that ran the entire length of the windows which all opened wide. Sitting there, with the fire going, windows open with the waves lapping below with wine or coffee and a book is just pure heaven. Competent, friendly staff. The wine and snacks in the evening served in the lobby are a nice touch and also complimentary continental breakfast served in your room should you need it. The hotel is close to all that Monterey offers and a short ride to Pacific Grove and Carmel.
Definitely would stay here again.

Room Tip: The Cannery side rooms have balconies and look over the street which can get noisy at night.

We spent several days here just enjoying the locale. Walking distance to numerous restaurants and the aquarium. Although valet parking is expensive ($23 per day) it was necessary as parking is too difficult to find on the street. The continental breakfast is yummy - plentiful and wonderful. A different selection every day. The room we had was the one pictured at the top of these reviews and well worth it. We looked down on the beach and could open all the windows.

This is one of our favorite places we've ever stayed! We booked it via Priceline express deals and got a good deal. We stayed in a corner room on the 4th floor (room 408) facing cannery row. We loved the comfortable seating areas near the windows...I could spend hours reading there. The room was well decorated and very comfortable. Loved the quaintness and romantic feel of this place. Staff was friendly and complimentary breakfast in room was a nice touch. Bathroom was nice and loved the feather bed. You have to wait a little while for valet parking because the guys have to run around the corner to a parking garage and valet parking is $23/night but it was so convenient in this busy area. Would highly recommend this inn as I didn't even want to leave!

We stayed here for 2 nights on our trip to the San Francisco area last week, and I have to say, it was my favorite place during our trip. We had a room with a balcony on the Cannery Row side which was great for people watching. There was not any bothersome noise from the street at night. Everyone was so accommodating. Spoiled by having our breakfast brought to the room.....very nice! The room was lovely....just liked everything about this hotel!

We stayed at the spindrift for one night during our road trip on route 1. The hotel was lovely and the staff went out of their way from the minute we arrived to make our stay perfect. The room was elegant and homely and the sea view made it even more special, the hotel is literally on the beach so we woke up to see the sea lions playing in the sea outside our room. The reception staff recommended a wonderful restaurant and made the booking on our behalf ensuring that we had one if the best tables in the restaurant. They honestly couldn't have done any more for us. Our only regret is that we couldn't stay longer. Will definitely go back one day.
