My daughter, Kate, graduated high school in June. For her graduation my mother and I took her to Monterey, Carmel and San Francisco. We had an amazing trip and enjoyed every second of it.
We flew into San Jose, rented a car and drove to Monterey. We stayed at the Spindrift Inn on Cannery Row. We were in room 204, a double with ocean view and a fireplace. The room and inn were beautiful and well-kept. We slept with the windows open, listening to the sounds of the ocean, Kate even made a bed in the window seat and slept there.
Pros: complimentary breakfast served on a silver tray, wine/cheese reception each evening, binoculars, free wi-fi, attentive staff and great location.
Cons: only one elevator, wooden floors can be a bit loud for those on the lower floors
