Not quite.

A spinning bike is usually sturdier, to allow for standing riding at full effort.

A spinning bike will usually have a heavier flywheel, which give a smoother character to pedaling, more similar to real riding.

A spinning bike usually has a handle bar which allows for several different hand positions.

Some spinning bikes are fixed gears, meaning the pedals will keep spinning for a while when you go off power.

Spinning bikes will usually be more adjustable in saddle and bar fore/aft position.

Spinning bikes will usually be set up to take regular bicycle saddles, as opposed to the extra wide monstrosities often found on regular exercise bikes.

What is the difference between a spinning bike and a regular exercise bike?

A spin bike, for one, is much more stripped down than a regular exercise bike. The latest models of exercise bikes can keep track of calories burned, heart rate, and measure distance and speed. They are also programmable so that you can simulate flat roads, hilly mountains, etc. Spin bikes rarely come with any of these gizmos. There is usually only one knob for resistance that is manually controlled. Turn the knob and you will feel as if you are "climbing" on the bike. beyond this spin bikes are often fixed gear which does not allow for freewheeling. If the pedals are moving the wheels is moving. Most exercise bikes have some type of freewheeling ability.
