“Affordable on the beach”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 5, 2013

Service was helpfull even during late check in. Quiet at night. Close to boardwalk and many restaurants close by. Plenty of parking spots! Rooms were a little outdated but very clean. Nice outdoor pool on balcony by the road.

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 (great if you have kids). The walls must be thick (older construction?) because we never heard a thing from the outside hallway, the rooms around us, or the street below (we were on a corner of two roads). Malia's is great for a quick bite to eat. The staff was friendly and helpful, and we had absolutely no problem with anything here. Again, it's an older building and not fancy, but if you want location and cleanliness, this is it!

Room Tip: Try to get a higher floor so you'll have a side view of the ocean.

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 to come back to Ocean City.

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 elevator is small and slow. We were on the 5th floor. Pool is nice also lots of lounge chairs. Nice beach area in front as well. Would def stay here again!! Staff was very nice and helpful!

Room Tip: nice view from 5th floor!

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 for breakfast and lunch.Would certailny reccomend to anyone, and stay here again. Everything comes as advertised, no big surprises, nothing missing. Again, great location, great value for your money.

Room Tip: Rooms above first floor will have a side view of ocean from balcony.

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. Would recommend to everybody. A little pricey but worth the money

Room Tip: North side rooms are for non-smokers
