The room was dated but clean. Shower was newer. Had an efficiency which we really didn't use much but was nice to have a large refrigerator. We wanted a place in the beach block though it's not beachfront; you get a side ocean view. The staff was pleasant and helpful. Did not see any bugs which is always a good... More

Hailing from Long Island, it is hard to beat Montauk and the Hamptons. Unless its summer. For a native, it's time to go!! We had never been to OC before and were told by a few friends that it was comparable to the best of Lake George and Montauk - combined - and they were right! When I began to... More

The hotel was fine, thats all. Bathroom shower looked like it had been updated, as well as the furniture. Carpeting, wallpaper, and kitchen were old, though. But, we were not there for the room...it is very close to the beach. You do not have a good ocean view...the rooms do not face the ocean (because there is another large hotel... More

We were excited to stay here even though it was $240ish a night because of the partition wall, kitchenette, and location to the beach. We were only coming down for two nights. We found roaches after returning from dinner on our 2nd night! It's just unacceptable. If you don't mind them & don't expect 5star accommodations, then the location of... More

When we first arrived at the Spinnaker, we were a little concerned despite the great reviews. The office for check in smelled like stale smoke, however, there were signs stating the property is smoke free and there would be a $250 charge if we smoke in the room. Not a problem, we are not smokers. I thought it strange that... More

It is always clean and the staff are always so nice and helpful. They go out of there way to make your stay as pleasant as... More

First off when arriving to check-in I mentioned the offer for the free breakfast online and showed her on my phone. She stated that I would have to print out that offer. She said that is what I would have to show at the restaurant. I then proceded to have it faxed when I picked it up they handed me... More

Surprised by our stay at the Spinnaker. We were pleasantly surprised that we did not need to move our vehicle one time after we got there. Everything is very easily accessible with plenty of good restaurants and shopping within walking distance. The beach access is perfect. The only complaint I could think of was the bed size. We are a... More
