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...

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...

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...

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 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

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...

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...
