Just came home from a 2 night stay . The staff is super friendly and bend over backwards for you. The location can't be beat. We walked to everything. And having garage parking was awesome. They even let us keep the car parked on our last day after checkout. The hallways in the motel were a bit dark, but not... More

We started our trip at the Oceanus Motel across the street, but we had a horrendous experience (they called us at 10:30pm and then again at 12:30am saying we were being too loud- the first time we were watching TV quietly and the second time we were asleep; when we complained, the owner made us feel disrespected and uncomfortable) We...

The Sandcastle is located on the main drag in Rehoboth close to everything in town. Unfortunately, the place has not been updated in any way in a good 40 years. The lobby is minimal, soda and ice machines are in the basement parking garage. One great perk- free covered parking for guests. The rooms are minimalist. Ours had a microfridge... More

Is so convenient, staff friendly, free covered parking that staff extends before and after arrival/departure if space available (it was in September) which was VERY helpful and appreciated. Not upscale, but acceptably clean... shows wear as a beach hotel, Quiet, even right next to elevator. I would stay here again, use the money you save for a good dinner.

This motel is in a great location-- walking distance to all the shops and the beach. However, it left a lot to be desired. My husband and I stayed here with his parents for a night in September. The place did not feel clean and was very dingy looking. The beds were absolutely terrible-- small double beds that were not... More

Stayed here for Labor Day and had a very average experience. It was WAY over-priced but felt safe and was a 5 minute walk to the board walk and beach. Pros: -Like 0.3 miles to the beach so a quick walk -Free covered parking in their garage so you don't have to worry about your car on the street or... More

We paid $250 a night because of labor day weekend and we wanted to be close to the beach. The location is great but the rooms are old and dingy with a mildewy smell. The housekeepers didnt come to clean the room until after 2pm and they didnt even change our sheets which were sandy from the beach. The receptionist... More

We paid $225 a night for our average room and were disappointed with an unnecessary mix up at the front desk, dirty rotting bathroom floors, black mold or mildew at the top of the shower, rust on the door, filthy carpets, and a tiny balcony. All of this would be acceptable for $50-75 a night. I even wore my flip... More

My friend and I recently stayed 5 nights at the Sandcastle motel. Having traveled many years to near beach locations, in many cities and states, this was one of the worst. The carpet in our room was filthy, no microwave, no coffee machine, dark creepy hallways and stairwells, no refill on soap shampoo, etc.Daily cleaning of the room was making... More

First off, the pros to this motel are without question the location, whether you are heading to the beach or any of the various shops and restaurants in the area, they are all within a few blocks. The staff was another plus. My wife arrived in the early morning hours after a very long drive and they allowed us to... More
