“Sweet retreat!”
Reviewed 6 March 2009

We got a good deal on this hotel bidding for a 3 1/2 star room on Priceline. It was even better than we expected. The rooms are beautifully decorated, clean, comfortable and delightfully cozy with window seats for napping. There was a slight problem with the hot water in our room, so they immediately upgraded us to a corner room on the top floor with a view of the ocean. Everyone on the staff was extremely nice and helpful, from the valets to the front desk, to the room service. The complimentary in-room continental breakfast delivered to our room was elegantly presented and fresh and tasty. The bed was very comfortable. The location is excellent for walking to the aquarium, restaurants, etc. The hotel let us know about a special being offered by The Sardine Factory for an early bird dinner and made reservations for us. It was a wonderful filet mignon dinner for $19.95! in the restaurant's beautiful conservatory room.

Real wood fireplaces on a chilly beach evening, hardwood floors to walk barefoot on, down-filled bedding to sink into and dream, street-front porch for Sunday morning jazz, kahlua coffee with continental breakfast, and the smell of the ocean. The Spindrift Inn is beautiful, relaxing, and a romantic weekend getaway with quiet walls from your neighbors.

Found this hotel thru tripadvisor and was not disappointed. Went to Monterey for our 30th wedding anniversity, when we arrived we were upgraded to a corner room and had a bottle of wine waiting on us. Room were just like pictures and very comfortable and cozy. Staff knew our names during our stay and were very helpful with all questions. The only negative was on Friday night we could hear the music from the bar across the street. Would highly recommend this hotel for any couple looking to get away for a few days.

The hotel was great, we had a great view of the ocean from our room. The hotel staff was very friendly and helpful. I was the most relaxing vacation we have had in a long time. Everything you need is either in the hotel or right down the street in walking distance.

The Spindthrift iInn s pricey but beautiful. Our fourth floor room ($215) had a four poster bed, fire place, large flat screen TV, large bathroom, comfortable seating, and a wonderful window seat overlooking Monterey Bay. We stayed one night in February 2009. The hotel is right on Cannery Row, just three blocks from the aquarium. Cheaper rooms can be found in Monterey, but we’re glad we splurged for one night.

Street side rooms, extremely noisy!! LOUD nightclub music, screaming, yelling right under windows til 2:00 a.m., both on Friday & Saturday nights. Not worth any amount you may have to pay, go somewhere else. Staff was fine, not a problem there. Pretend remodel, hard surfaces need a lot of work...toilet bowl needed a good scrubbing.....Keys failed to work the second night, had to get them re-coded. Continental breakfast was pitiful at best....coffee was lukewarm, items missing (cream cheese/butter/jam), fruit plate was horrible...grapes were all picked from stem and rolling around on the plate....yuk! This hotel was really nice about 15 years ago..now just very noisy....can't even open windows (latches broken anyway & dirty) to get fresh air. SOOOOOO disappointed.

IOM_8, General Manager at Spindrift Inn, responded to this review, 4 March 2009
We appreciate our guest’s comments. Feedback is always welcome and considered to be of significant value to our hotel. The Spindrift Inn just recently completed an extensive, two-million dollar renovation of the property. In this particular case, the maintenance and breakfast items noted did not meet our standards and have been addressed. In addition, the noise level of the music coming from a restaurant across the street was addressed with the owner of the restaurant. The owner has assured us that he will respond to this issue.

The re-modeled room was great and so was the top notch staff. The property is well managed and maintained. I will highly recommend everyone to stay there and will make this our getaway.
