“Good location and clean.”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 28 June 2014

This hotel is nothing fancy but hey your at the beach and how much time are you in the room. The staff at the front desk are locals who gave us great places to eat. The rooms are clean and roomy. Just off the board we had a great view of the beach at a cost effective price. The pool area is clean. It was great to have a full size frig and there is everything you need for a quick meal. We did not cook as we were only there for the weekend. We paid for a late check out which is not always available but it was a nice way to extend our stay. Parking for all rooms right at the hotel which gave us the freedom to come and go as we pleased. The room sleeps 6 which is great for families and the balcony is more roomy than most.

This hotel is our yearly getaway to the beach in OC. Very well located on the beach, not to close to the noisy inlet area where the younglings like to congregate hoot and hollar. Also several very good places for dinner in easy walking distance...such as Phillips across the street, Da Vinci's just 5 streets down on the boardwalk and Coins which is a really nice steakhouse we discovered down the road. The rooms are just what you would want for a great beach vacation. Comfy beds, private balconies (great for relaxing not to mention drying out those bathing suits), in room safes and a small but complete kitchenette. We love this feature as it saves alot of money by being able to make our on breakfast in the morning and we also bring lunch items that we can either take to the beach with us or run up to the room and have our lunch and only have to go out for dinner at night. Spinnaker makes for a great getaway...up in the morning and have breakfast on the balcony and then down to the beach for the day with our lunch in tow, then back up to room to clean up and walk to one of several good dinner locations. All this and resonable nightly rates. This place is our "go to" location and we always book early.

Room Tip: Higher floors have a better view

We loved it here. As long as you don't mind the compact rooms, this hotel has everything you could want. Friendly, attentive service and a built-in cafe make for convenient amenities. The outdoor pool area is also spacious and very well kept. By far the best feature is the location - you're just a few steps from the boardwalk and prime beach access. Close to the action if you seek it, but far enough from it if you want a quieter getaway on the north end of the boards. As stated before, the rooms are on the smaller side - but are clean, cozy, charming. We will definitely be coming back here again.

Room Tip: Try to get a back corner room if you can so you can enjoy a less obstructed ocean view.

My family has been staying here for years! Always very friendly service from check in to check out! Location is great, one half block off of boardwalk, no traffic to cross. Ocean views from private balcony, yes some rooms offer a better view than others. Not a 5star hotel, older but well kept! Clean, rooms updated on a regular basis. We love the FULL kitchen..complete with microwave, full size (not huge) fridge and a full stove with an oven. With a near middle of the boardwalk location you are close to restaurants, mini golf, a drug store and of course the beach and boards!

Room Tip: higher rooms though a little more offer better views from the balcony..rooms on the side above the o...

We stayed only one night. This hotel seemed to located just a little north of all the real Boardwalk activity, but we liked it because the beach was not crowded. The staff was extremely friendly. Check in was easy. Visitors might want to be aware that the rooms are entered from an outside balcony and those of us who have problems with heights might want a lower level room. We had a problem with our mattress and the next morning I reported it as an FYI to the front desk; they told me that had we called them at night, they would have replaced the mattress. The kitchen area is small but stocked. We did not use it except to make coffee and keep some drinks cold. No problem with noise form other guests, but this hotel, like all the beachfront hotels, is on an active street. We had breakfast in the attached cafe …once again, everyone was very friendly. Overall, a great experience!!This is not a luxury hotel, but it was perfect for a family get away.

Room Tip: If I went again, I would ask for a beach front room. There are 2 levels of efficiency rooms: effici...

I loved our stay, we arrived almost an hour early and although check in was not until 4 they let us check in. The room was clean and furnished nicely. The view was beautiful from the balcony. We were a couple of steps from the beach, the staff was polite and courteous the swimming pool was great. I have no complaints and will be back next year.
