My husband and I had a fantastic time at The Spindrift. The staff were friendly and courteous and very helpful. The small details such as Aveda products in the bathrooms, fresh firewood for our fireplace every day, a valet stand near the bed for my husband's coat and wallet, binoculars on our window seat to view the ocean, and an overall general sense of being carefully attended to all added to our stay. The bedding was AMAZING and comfortable: down comforter AND down mattress pad! I haven't slept as well in a long time! The decor is only slightly outdated, but charming nonetheless. The location was perfect: right on the water and Cannery Row - we almost never drove because we could walk to everything.
The only item I would mention is that the housekeeping comes by too many times through the day, especially if you take advantage of the continental breakfast delivered to your room.
Overall we are very happy with our stay and would recommend The Spindrift to anyone wanting a nice, cozy stay in Monterey.
