They cleaned the whole room again and was very apologetic. Then I had some ants called the desk they sent someone right up. Truly a Hotel concern of customer service. Very attentive and...

The room was great as always. A really nice and clean room. The Breakfast's at Malia's were awesome, especially the Crab Omlets! The service was excellent and the staff very nice! Definitely will go there in the future! Have been there many times and for years! Feels like home! No place like the Beach!!!

Okay people, I'm a realist. I like good people good food and honest opinions. I work in the hotel business for a very big name. Big names come with big prices and high expectations. However I have a good level of appreciation for smaller mom-and-pop businesses. I can't breathe enough about the Spinnaker pier in Ocean City. I look for...

Very clean, every staff member was courteous, friendly and helpful!! Refrigerator wasn't working, had a brand new one at my room within 5 minutes of calling! No bathrooms by the pool and slow elevators were the only downfall!! Great value for the location! Would definitely recommend!

My husband and I made an overnight trip to OC. We chose The Spinnaker based on availability and proximity to the beach and boardwalk. The room was neat and better than expected. It had a little efficiency kitchen and a super clean bathroom. But, what I really want you to know about is the front desk. Patty checked us in...

Once again we weren't disappointed. Came in on Sunday 13th till 18. Decided we weren't ready to come home and lucked out with an extra night. As always the rooms were clean and smelled fresh. Kids always enjoy the pool, short walk to the beach and Boardwalk .

We really enjoyed our time at The Spinnaker! Super nice staff! Our family of 6 fit perfectly in a double room! The room was clean. I LOVED that we could control the AC! The distance to the beach was a literal hop, skip and jump away! The parking was plentiful! We will definitely be revisiting The Spinnaker!
