I am a multiple times return guest at this OC hotel. I like the proximity to the beach, the location, amenities, and customer service. The hotel is located a few steps from the beach, the rooms are spacious, generously furnished, clean and adequately equipped to prepare in-room meals. This is truly one of those places where one can park the... More

The view from our room was amazing! Nice clean place with a stocked kitchenette. Fridge, microwave, electric stove and coffee maker (you will need to bring your own coffee.) Staff were friendly, helpful & insightful to the local eateries, attractions and transportation. The hotel was less than 1/2 a block from the boardwalk/beach! It was a nice, relaxing vacation without... More

Stayed at the Spinnaker for 2 nights in August. Location is great right on boardwalk just steps away. Best rooms are 510, 410, 310 have clear ocean view. Larger bldg blocks front of hotel but you are steps away so you can just walk outside. Staff is really friendly and accommodating, we called and asked for a wine opener i... More

18th Street. Ocean block hotel that is steps from the OC boardwalk. Near some decent take-out beach food places. 1 1/2 miles from the rides at the pier. Small but decent outdoor pool. Great 2nd level sundeck with lounge chairs, tables for eating and an outdoor living room. Rooms have two beds, a pull-out sofa, small kitchen, balcony with a... More

We took our 3 grandchildren and their parents to beach. The room was overlooking the ocean. Clean & everything we needed! The staff was awesome & very friendly. The kitchen was stocked with all our needs. It is a great family type hotel and we loved everything about the location. Did not have to move the car once we got... More

We decided to visit OC over the July 4th weekend and finding a place to stay was very tough. Stumbled on the Spinnaker based on previous reviews and had a very memorable stay. Location -- cant beat this. Off 18th and right behind the OC boardwalk. We walked to many of the local joints and had free parking onsite. Never... More

I rarely write reviews, but couldn't resist because from the moment we checked in until we checked out, the women at the front desk were so warm and nice! Our family of 5 would usually stay at a well known chains, however our budget was limited this year. The room was clean, the bed linen was clean and crisp, the... More

This is your typical beach motel. They advertise renovated rooms however they are not completely renovated. The renovated rooms have new comfortable beds with super soft bedding and new flat screen televisions. The kitchenette and bathroom have not been renovated. The room is definitely on the cleaner side for a beach hotel. Clean towels are provided every day. The beds... More

I went for 4 days with my family of 4. My sons are 14 and 17. The room isn't extremely huge but definitely enough space for all of us. My one son slept on the pull out sofa bed and the other slept on the bed. I think is was a great advantage to have a full kitchen with my... More

I recently stayed with my daughters and their friends to celebrate birthdays. I found the efficiency to be overpriced, no sound installation between rooms or noise ordinance on property, and a room entrance located under the sun deck which made for a dark and dingy feel for us every time we opened our front door. As advertised on the website,... More
