We spent three nights of a relaxing northern California vacation here, and we truly did not want to leave our room at the Spindrift Inn. We splurged on an oceanfront corner room, and it was worth every penny. It was not only immaculate, large, and beautifully appointed, but it came with two comfortable easy chairs in front of a wood-burning fireplace and a large window overlooking Monterey Bay. Complementary continental breakfasts here are delivered to your room (you order them the night before), and nothing's better than eating breakfast in bathrobes while relaxing in front of a fire and watching the sun rise over the bay. It was the combination of the two easy chairs, fireplace, and window that made this the best hotel room we've ever stayed in.
The Spindrift Inn has a great location in the middle of Cannery Row. The oceanfront rooms are a quiet, peaceful refuge, but walk out the front door and you're in the middle of plenty of restaurants and attractions within walking distance.
The streetside rooms would be a very different experience. Cannery Row is pretty busy and they would be noisier. The hotel isn't air conditioned, although fans are provided, and when we visited in late September we kept the windows opened.
The lobby is very comfortable but rather small and somewhat noisy because of people coming in and out. The staff were all very professional and helpful.
This is a perfect choice for a romantic or decompression getaway--worth every cent.
