Located right in the middle of cannery row. Walking distance to the aquarium. Got an ocean view room and it was great. You're literally on the beach, no boardwalk in between. Free breakfast delivered to your room. Wine and cheese reception in the evening. The staff makes the place great also Paul was fantastic. He showed us 3 rooms before...

We took a long weekend away before our baby is due in April. The location was perfect - great views and easy access to restaurants, plus valet parking! We stayed on the fourth floor on the Cannery Row side and I thought it was so noisy the first night but we left one of the windows open on accident, after...

We had a wonderful three night stay here, and even the weather was obliging! Wonderful big room, facing directly over the beach. We could watch sea otters, and seals, just a few yards from our window. It was great to listen to the surf at night. Not at all formal, but very friendly and helpful staff. Free breakfast delivered to...

Hello Stephen C, Thank you for your wonderful five star review! We were all happy to read that your stay was absolutely delightful.

The room, with the bay view, was ultra romantic and cozy. you get breakfast in-room if you want. We could have spent all day in the room, honestly. And the 2-day discount aquarium passes were great too. Will definitely be back!

Thank you for your review and for allowing us the opportunity to welcome you as our guest.

If you're coming to Monterey to visit the Aquarium and hang out on Cannery Row, the Spindrift is a great launching pad. It's walking distance to...well, most of Monterey's waterfront. The hotel offers valet parking so you don't have to deal with where you parked or remembering your ticket. We took a corner room with a fireplace which was very...
