    Exceptional 10.0
    It was a last minute Labor Day trip and we lucked up with a room been searching all day just got on the road and literally was 30 mins away and this room popped up and we snagged it. Everything was clean and neat minus a little urine on the floor around the toilet but no worries I brought Lysol and Clorox wipes to clean again

    Our family trip
    We had a late check in and the front desk was patient and quick so we could get to our room. Our room exceeded our expectations. Convenient location and friendly and helpful staff.

    Spinaker Hotel Ocean City MD.
    We found a bottle of Pepsi next to the couch, the tv remote control did not work, the air conditioning remote control did not work, and very noisy, the elevator is old, small and slow. For the rest is fine. The location is pretty good and the parking lot too.

    Just stayed at spinnaker for a 4th time. I love that it’s close to everything - 2 min walk to boardwalk and beach. Each room has a little kitchen . Staff is so nice, shout out to front desk ! Can’t wait to go back

    Ok but not worth the money
    Room was ok but the door frame was damaged like someone was trying to break in. We found a baby pacifier under the bed so who knows how thorough the room was cleaned. And we were unable to use the pool during our stay because it needed repairs. A small reimbursement would have been nice since that is a pretty important amenity when on vacation. The staff however were very nice so that was a plus, but we probably won’t be staying here again.

    It’s just smelled like mildew and old water rusted fixtures in the bathroom. I didn’t even stay the pics fooled me

    Great beach hotel
    We had a great stay. When checking in the 2 ladies at the desk were so friendly and helpful. They have different Processes in place due to COVID , she took time to explain them and what to expect. We had the pleasure of seeing Chris around the property daily. He was so kind and welcoming , always smiling and working hard. The housekeeping staff was the same , everyone who works there seems to take pride in their job. The hotel is old but they do a great job at maintaining the best they can. It’s a beach hotel they all are like that. The bathroom was renovated with a nice bright mirror which I appreciated. Having a Little Kitchen was very handy. Only downside was 1 working elevator on our side. Most times it wasn’t a long wait but sharing a little elevator with other family’s seemed unsafe in these times. So we would wait til it was empty which was no issue. The beach is so close. Right up the ramp and your on the boardwalk , couldn’t be more convenient. We did not use the pool but from what we could see it looked well maintained and never crowded. Plenty of parking. Easy to come and go. We will be staying again soon
