We just returned from a last minute stay at the Spinnaker Motel and it more than met our needs and exceeded our expectations. While the building and interiors seen a little aged, the room was clean, close to the boardwalk and had a decent view of the ocean. It was lovely to wake up and watch the sunrise. Front desk...

Bed you sink in, and a balcony that looks out to the beach in the morning. What more can you ask for? Not to mention that you are walking distance to all you could want to do on the island, if you need to drive Rt 50 and 90 are just blocks away. For the price you cannot beat the... More

This is my second stay at the Spinnaker and once again the price and location are excellent deals. This time I had a slight issue with housekeeping but I spoke to the front office and they went above and beyond making sure the issue was given priority attention. This posting is to give a special thank you to the front... More

The Spinnaker is an older hotel - classic OC. It is half the price of alot of the newer hotels nearby like the Grand, the Holiday Inn, and the Marriott. It is a bit dated and worn, but clean and the rooms can sleep six if you are pinched. The staff is really friendly. The pool is ok. Lots of... More

The staff was very helpful when I needed directions to Assateague Island she wrote the directions down which was very helpful even though I had a GPS. I will stay here again. I will however ask for a top floor corner room instead of the fist floor unit.

Rooms are always clean. They always smell fresh when you enter the room. We always you the safe provided. It was locked when we got into our room. Maintenance came right away and reset everything for us. Beach is in walking and sight. Pool is always clean and kids enjoy it. This hotel has been our yearly vacation spot for... More

Had a very good experience all around. Called a few weeks ago and spoke with "Anita" to ask availability over a long weekend. She mentioned she had one last recently refurbished unit with good side view of the ocean so I took it. Busy but professional front desk; the women cleaning the rooms were fast, efficient but most of all... More

No complaints! Very happy with our weekend getaway at the Spinnaker. Clean, quiet and close to the beach. Staff was very friendly and helpful. Check out Malia's Café on site- Great breakfast and reasonable prices.

This was our 3rd visit to Spinnaker Hotel in 4 years. We are now convinced that this will be the ONLY place to go every year now! The staff is by far the friendliest anywhere, the hotel rooms are clean, the pool is nothing short of terrific, and the location is awesome too. For the price, you really cannot beat... More

My family has been going to Ocean City for the past 24 years. This is the first time we stayed at the Spinnaker, and we were pleasantly surprised by how nice this motel is. We stayed in one of the efficiencies, and it looked like everything was new. The staff does a great job keeping the building and rooms clean!!... More
