“OUTSTANDING Motel and Staff”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 1, 2013

I went to Ocean City the week after labor day for a fishing trip. The motel was meticulously clean and was very conveniently located just off of the boardwalk. The staff was very accomodating to my family. I have a couple of younger kids that get kind of crazy when they are excited but the staff were all smiles and extremely helpful. I have stayed in a number of other hotels and motels up and down the boardwalk but this one was the only one that seemed genuinely happy to have us. They told us about great local places to eat off of the beaten path. The cleaning ladies were very helpful as well. Like I said I have stayed other places in Ocean City but you don't really feel like a welcomed guest a lot of times. Not a five star luxury motel but if you are looking for a place to stay that is clean, the staff is friendly, and located close to everything the Spinnaker motel is the best place to stay in Ocean City.

Room Tip: The rooms have a refridgerator, hot plate, and nice kitchen sink. Plates, cups, and cutlery are als...

My family and I stayed at this motel with another family and their kids. Front desk was very friendly and accommodating when booking two efficiency room close together. Upon arriving we had two rooms side by side 4th floor in the north tower. Rooms were very clean and comfortable, balcony even had ocean view. We would stay here again because of the great price and it being a stones throw away from the boardwalk.

Room Tip: 4th and 5th floors north tower for best ocean view

This is an older beach motel off the boardwalk in Ocean City. We rented an efficiency for the weekend and were very pleased with the amount of room space, view, cleanliness, and service we experienced. The bathrooms are actually larger than many of the other motels down there at the same age. It is located on 18th street, which is a very popular spot on the boardwalk and close to many shops and restaurants. I would highly recommend and we will book again.

Room Tip: I would recommend paying the extra money and getting an efficiency. The efficiency provides a great...

I recently stayed for a few days at the Spinnaker Motel for a friends birthday and had a wonderful time! The motel seems to have had a recent facelift and the rooms were nice, clean and well appointed. The location off the boardwalk and beautiful beach, was only topped by the lovely ladies that work the front desk! They made me feel like family and invited me to come back soon for my next visit! I will most certainly be returning to the Spinnaker on my next trip to OCMD. The prices are right and location even better!

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!
