Spindrift Inn

Reviewed 30 November 2009

only shortcomings are lack of true room service and WiFi costs $10/night. There is a free Continental breakfast but no on the spur of the moment ordering of food or drink (the breakfast is supplied from a hotel kitchen down the street). I've stayed at lesser hotels that provide free WiFi and don't understand why higher end, classier hotels don't. Feels like they are trying to milk you for all they can get.
Otherwise, our favorite hotel stay on the Monterey Peninsula. Charming, romantic, hospitable. Love the real in-room fireplace. Great to have roaring fire and listen to the crashing surf on the beach below.

The Sprindrift is one of my absolute favorite hotels in the country. I have made 7 visits in 2009--which makes the Sprindrift my #1 vacation choice. The Spindrift is located in the very heart of Monterey, amongst Cannery Row Shops and great restaurants, the Aquarium, Fisherman's Wharf, and a nice beach. Best of all the Sprindrift has wonderful accomodations--wood burning fireplace, window seat which sits you above the crashing waves, down featherbed and comforter, hardwood floors and the best staff of any place along the coast. You know you are on vacation, yet you are treated as if you are home by people who love you and know your comforts. I have brought along all o f my family members, some friends and business associates to this wonderful spot and everyone has loved everything about the Spindrift. Kudos to your wonderful staff and accomodations.

We arrived and were greeted by the friendliest, sweetest two women we have ever dealt with at a hotel. Valet parking was easy and affordable. The room was absolutely gorgeous, warm and welcoming. Coming home to a complimentary happy hour with Ventana wine and cheese was fabulous. From there we returned to our room to find a turned down bed with delicious chocolates, and a relaxing fire. The perfect way to end a November day in Monterey. The only complaint would be the noise from the pub across the street on Saturday night if you have a Cannery Row facing room. Sunday night was perfect!

From the moment we arrived we were treated like appreciated guests. The valet appeared immediately when we drove up, took our bags and parked the car. The registration process was very personal and all our questions were answered. The room was sumptuous with a fireplace and wonderful "fluffy bed". Our breakfast was delivered as requested to our room. Each time we returned to the hotel we were greeted with "Welcome Home!" The wine and cheese gathering each late afternoon was lovely and gave us an opportunity to chat with others about recommendations, experiences, etc. The hotel location was excellent and we walked to everything we wanted to do. We couldn't have asked for a nicer experience in Monterey.

Great weekend trip for our anniversary, location is spot on for Cannery row! Gorgeous views and beautiful hotel, super comfy bed! Loved the wine and cheese every afternoon, we took it up to the rooftop patio and enjoyed the view. Walked everywhere, didn't see our car until we were ready to leave. I'm spoiled by the best and this fit the bill!!

My wife and I stayed one night with our 8 and 6 year old grandsons. We upgraded to an ocean view, and were rewarded by the kids' comment that this was the nicest hotel room that they ever had. The staff were wonderful with suggestions, parking, wine and cheese hour and included in-room breakfast. The inn is just a block or so from our primary objective, the aquarium. Valet parking at $18, is unfortunately the only option.
