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!

We breezed into OC without reservations on a non-holiday week. We were at another hotel that couldn't accommodate a 4-night stay and I came across this motel for nights 3 and 4 of our stay. We were pleasantly pleased. The rooms are a bit dated, worn and small but offered a lot of amenities that some of the larger chains...
