“Hard to beat for the price”
Reviewed October 10, 2013

We stay every spring and fall here because we cannot find a better deal for its accommodations. Front desk ladies are top-notch! They are friendly, and will bend over backwards to make your stay a good one. Rooms are clean, great pillows, comfy beds, and nice flatscreens. The only drawbacks are the 2 tiny elevators and narrow outside corridors, hard to get around if there are others. But thats on the builders from way back. The whole staff does a great job!

The room was clean and spacious. The room service was nice and on time with request. The location was prefect. Balcony was spacious. The beds were very comfortable. Nice size TV that accommodated everyone in the room.

I was very pleased with the Spinnaker Motel. The first thing I noticed when I entered the room was a card on the bed stating that all bed linens were clean and fresh for each guest. I was pleased to see that and the beds were comfortable. Our bathroom was clean. The staff was friendly. The pool was very nice. We had four rooms side by side on the forth floor. We had a nice view of the ocean. I would stay here again.

We have stayed quite a few times here at the Spinnaker and find it very good. Close to the Boardwalk, bus stop, resturants and much more. The rooms are clean and the beds are comfortable. The staff is friendly and informative. The pool area is nice with a large deck and tables with umbrellas. John and Janet

Room Tip: We like the 4th or 5th floor rooms 405--409

The hotel is situated behind this bid honking hotel that blocks off the beach view. Made a reservation for a non-smoking room but they didn't have one for us, so we had to deal with a smoking room. No complimentary coffee in the morning or ever. There is a coffeepot in the room if you want to go shopping. One poor woman got locked in the pool area. Bathroom was dirty!!!!!! No tissues, no breakfast, internet poor. With so many nice hotels there that we didn't know about, we would not go back here. The only saving grace was a GREAT little restaurant next door that served a terrific breakfast! If I had to do it over I would stay if Fenniker.

Room Tip: I would pick the Days Inn or Holiday Inn next door.

We once again stayed at the Spinnaker for Delmarva Bike Week and the place remains one of the best values in OC. Though the hotel is somewhat dated there have been upgrades to the HVAC and TV's in the rooms, as well as some new carpeting, but the main thing for us is that they keep the place spotless! All of the staff is friendly and helpful, and special requests for rooms adjacent and other considerations are handled without a question.

Room Tip: We always stay in the south tower...the restaurant is there and we like the views.
