I was attending Skip Barber's three day race car driving school at Mazda Raceway Laguna Seca and we needed a place to stay with an easy drive to the track and in an area where my wife could walk to attractions and shopping. Found Spindrift online and reviews on Trip Advisor were helpful in making a final decision. We had a third floor corner room on ocean side which was beautifully decorated - canopy bed (very comfortable), a wood burning fireplace (weather was chilly so we had a fire going daily), large flat screen TV, two comfortable wing back chairs, built-in seating under windows and a small table and two chairs for dining. There was also a writing desk and large closet with built in drawers. The room was a tad crowded due to the large wing backed chairs but we didn't mind because they were so comfortable. We left the windows ajar in order to hear the sound of the waves each night. Bathroom was large and updated with tub/shower combo. What made this hotel a great value was the included continental breakfast brought to our room each morning and the wine, crackers and cheese available in the small but comfortable lobby each day from 4-6PM at no charge. Unfortunately,the weather was not good enough for us to enjoy the roof top garden area. ALL staff were friendly and helpful. We especially enjoyed Juliet who generously served the wine and cheese daily. She proudly told us about the additions and renovations the hotel had made within the last couple of years and showed us the Trip Advisor Award (a trophy) that Spindrift recently received. The only downside was the daily charge for Internet access. We highly recommend this unique hotel.
