This is an older motel, but it's VERY clean, the bedding is comfortable, and the location is great. The rooms are spacious and again, can't say enough about the cleanliness. Tile floor at entrance, bathroom and kitchen looked new. Carpet very nice. No streets to cross to access the Boardwalk and the ocean. Pool area is clean and well contained...

The room was very nice...very spacious. We were 4 adults and did not feel cramped, at all. The room was immaculate, especially the bathroom. Location was great. The bedding was comfortable, air conditioner worked well. It was pretty no frills but with all that being said, a very pleasant stay nonetheless. I would definitely stay here again if we were...

After 30 yrs of staying in OC this was our 1st try at The Spinnaker Motel. Let me say we were pleasantly surprised by this place! Our room was spotless and very spacious!! Beds very comfortable. View was good and balconys are semiprivate, which is better than some we have been at. The only downfall of the place is the...

Very nice staff, old rooms but very clean. Beds comfortable. Summer weekend rate seemed very high for what you get but location was great and it was clean. Pool is on a roof. Restaurant on main level was very good.

2 adults, 2 kids, in an efficiency. Plenty of room, stove, sink, full size fridge, coffee maker, toaster, microwave, dishes, silverware, all great. On the ocean block, don't have to cross any streets for the beach. Every room (except first floor) has a sideways view of the ocean which we weren't expecting. Restaurant on lower level is a nice option...

From the first time walking in to check pricing the employees were very helpful and friendly, during check-in we were early and we were made to feel at home letting us use the pool till the room was ready. The rooms are very clean and a smoking room did not smell like smoke like some do. Everything was as advertised....

Nice People, Great Location, Alot for your Money....uhhhh....Can you tell that I am trying to be nice? It's all that and then some but don't expect much more than the EconoLodge. Yes, you are right there next to the boardwalk. You can actually see it! Unfortunately, It really could use some updating. Would I stay there again? Maybe.

After all the reviews I thought it would be cleaner which was the most important thing to us. As soon as we walked in you could smell overwhelming air freshener as if to cover up the musty smell. In the kitchen area there was dried banana on the wall and candy under the dresser from the last guests, mold on...

Spinnaker is a good motel, just know what to expect when you book there. We stayed in the north building, by 19th Ave. We had 2 double beds and a sleeper sofa. The whole room itself is not big but it is adequate for our family of 5 and it is very clean. They seem to have renovated the tub/shower...
