Great Hotel that is the perfect place to stay in Monterey. My only suggestion would be that they included free wifi, as that was an extra ten dollars. Otherwise a wonderful hotel that my wife and I loved!

My priority in finding a room in Monterey was an ocean view. This couldn't have delivered better. The window seat overlooking the small beach and bay provided the perfect setting to sit and read a book and watch the seals play. With breakfast delivered to our door and complimentary wine and cheese in the lobby, the fireplace with flat screen above was our morning and evening location (dressed in the comfy white robes provided). Breakfast isn't fancy - yogurt, fruit, bagels and muffin, but it does the trick. The room we stayed in was beautifully decorated but not overdone. The staff was very friendly and helpful. The lobby is rather sterile and unassuming, but there is no reason to spend a lot of time in there. I highly recommend this hotel as a perfect romantic getaway!

Hotel was exactly as described. Nice, quite (with an ocean view) and romantic. Staff was excellent - there when you need and willing to answer any and all questions with a smile. Would recommend a stay for any occasion.

My boyfriend and I LOVED our visit and will definitely be back! We were in California for a week, spent only one night in Monterey, but we both wished it could have been longer as we enjoyed our stay at the Spindrift so much! The view, the fireplace, the fresh ocean air and perfect location...I can't wait to go back, it was truly the most romantic, relaxing Inn I have ever stayed at. Thank you!

Arrived at Spindrift inn to happy hour. Wine and cheese and crackers, yum! Our room was perfect A window seat overlooking ocean and a working fireplace. And oh, the bed, it was so comfortable! Staff was very helpful and the room was spacious and nice. We got to watch the tide come in and heard the sea lions barking and finally got the fire going. Its a great location.

We were in the USA for three weeks for our 25th wedding anniversary. We stayed 5 nights in San Francisco then drove down Highway 1 to LA (and then on to Hawaii). We stayed one night in Monterey and one night in Santa Barbara. When in Monterey we stayed at the 'Spindrift'.
What a wonderful hotel !!! Even though we only stayed one night we were made to feel very special by the staff. We had complimentary wine and cheese on arrival and when we got to our room there was a nice 'anniversary' bottle of wine waiting for us. The room was large, comfortable with the most amazing 'ocean view'. We spent hours just sat in the window looking at the ocean (and seals). The bed was the most comfortable hotel bed that I have ever sleapt in ! After the hustle and bustle of San Francisco this was just what the doctor ordered. We have every intention of returning to the Spindrift in the future, hopefully for a longer stay next time.

We booked directly from the hotel early with the nonrefundable internet rate and got a GREAT deal! Was cheaper than available on Expedia. Sprung for an oceanview room and was worth every penny! We had a large window seat both of us could lounge on and we were literally right above the water where the tide comes in and out. Windows open and weather is temperate so you can enjoy the great ocean breeze and sound. There was a white noise sleep CD in the room but with the natural soothing noise of the waves on the shore coming through the window I don't know why you'd ever use it! Real wood fireplace was great, only complaint is that then our room and clothes smelled like a fireplace (though it didn't get smoky at all in the room). Staff was nice, wine & cheese reception daily is actually pretty classy though there's enough to do in Monterey we only stopped by once at the end. Elevator is small and a little slow but it you don't have luggage no reason not to use the cool stairs that wrap around the outside of the building from each floor. Breakfast is nothing fancy but is included in the room rate delivered to your door each morning. Will definitely stay here again if we go back!! Walking distance to most destinations in Monterey, especially on the recreation trail which is gorgeous!
