My husband and I made an overnight trip to OC. We chose The Spinnaker based on availability and proximity to the beach and boardwalk. The room was neat and better than expected. It had a little efficiency kitchen and a super clean bathroom. But, what I really want you to know about is the front desk. Patty checked us in... More

Once again we weren't disappointed. Came in on Sunday 13th till 18. Decided we weren't ready to come home and lucked out with an extra night. As always the rooms were clean and smelled fresh. Kids always enjoy the pool, short walk to the beach and Boardwalk .

We really enjoyed our time at The Spinnaker! Super nice staff! Our family of 6 fit perfectly in a double room! The room was clean. I LOVED that we could control the AC! The distance to the beach was a literal hop, skip and jump away! The parking was plentiful! We will definitely be revisiting The Spinnaker!

I have stayed at The Spinnaker several times at the beginning of the season. Their rates are good and the rooms are clean. If you stay in the South building it takes a while for the hot water to get there but when it does you have plenty of it. I like the location. It is close to many great... More

This was by no means a luxury motel. But it was a great choice for us. The property is quite dated, and could use a fresh coat of paint. The sofa in the room had seen better days. In the building where we stayed, it has a tiny, clunky elevator -- often with a line of people waiting -- and... More

Don't judge a book by its cover. We thought the room would be more like the typical motel but it turned out to be pretty nice. The sheets were clean and we could see the ocean from our balcony. There was maid service as well that came in. Water pressure was awesome in the shower. It could have used more... More

We breezed into OC without reservations on a non-holiday week. We were at another hotel that couldn't accommodate a 4-night stay and I came across this motel for nights 3 and 4 of our stay. We were pleasantly pleased. The rooms are a bit dated, worn and small but offered a lot of amenities that some of the larger chains... More

Find somewhere else to stay. Starting with a high note: The people in the office were delightful. Very close to the beach and the Boardwalk - which was nice. And everything goes downhill from there. The rooms were very worn. Tired and old. And the carpet was wet to the touch (granted it was hot) but it is disgusting when... More

We were late in trying to make reservations so the options were few, but The Spinnaker had availability so we decided to grab a room before the few rooms left were gone. In short, we have no regrets and feel like we got one of the best values in Ocean City. It's not the cheapest or most luxurious, but when... More

Stayed here from Aug 13-15. My 2 adult daughters loved the newly renovated room, clean bathroom, very clean sheets and our location was perfect-- close to everything like Starbucks, Phillips, the boardwalk, etc. The kitchen was great with amenities and the balcony was perfect for late night lounging. It would've have been better if there was a designated indoor shower... More
