The Spinnaker has been around for as long as I can remember coming to OC. Our room had been newly renovated, very clean and super friendly staff, not to mention the great location steps from boardwalk. Parking wasn't a problem (we had 2 vehicles)I booked this place in September,for myself as well as my mom and her sister, both in... More

We have stayed here for many years (20+), returning in the spring and fall. Yes, it is an older motel. It is, however, always very well kept, clean and you can not beat the staff from front desk to housekeeping! Full size stove, refrigerator and basic kitchen set up..silverware, glasses, plates, cups. They do update the rooms, new carpet, beds,... More

Stayed at the Spinnaker 9/23-9/25. The room was very clean, cozy and comfortable. The location is also perfect as it is just steps away from the boardwalk. The staff were really friendly and professional. I would definitely stay at the Spinnaker during my next visit to Ocean City.

Back to the Spinnaker for our sixth year of Delmarva Bike Week. All of the problems with the facility (pool) seem to have been fixed, and the staff was as friendly and helpful as always (Nice to see Catherine was still our housekeeper!). The rooms were spotless, and everything worked. The balconies could use some sprucing up as the paint... More

The room was great as always. A really nice and clean room. The Breakfast's at Malia's were awesome, especially the Crab Omlets! The service was excellent and the staff very nice! Definitely will go there in the future! Have been there many times and for years! Feels like home! No place like the Beach!!!

Okay people, I'm a realist. I like good people good food and honest opinions. I work in the hotel business for a very big name. Big names come with big prices and high expectations. However I have a good level of appreciation for smaller mom-and-pop businesses. I can't breathe enough about the Spinnaker pier in Ocean City. I look for... More

Very clean, every staff member was courteous, friendly and helpful!! Refrigerator wasn't working, had a brand new one at my room within 5 minutes of calling! No bathrooms by the pool and slow elevators were the only downfall!! Great value for the location! Would definitely recommend!
