Hubby and I stayed here off reward points due to its prime location on the Rehoboth strip. I wasn't expecting much, because it's a cheap beach motel, but our bathroom was moldy in places. The pool water was also an unsettling shade of green. Cheap is fine, but I expect clean! Also, a note for ladies, the hotel provides shampoo... More

Don't ever book with this place. Stay as far away as you can. I was going to stay, the last weekend of September and gave them my card number, thinking they needed card just to hold room. Two days later they take out deposit. I called and they said Oh everything is ok. Two days later, they did it again.... More

We stayed at this location for 3 one night stays last Summer/Fall. It is a great no-frills motel. The rooms are a bit outdated, but they are clean. We were only in our room to sleep or shower so it wasn’t an issue for us. Its location is perfect as it is in walking distance from everything. Parking is included... More

The Sandcastle is a not-updated older hotel in a prime location about two blocks from the beach. A short hop to restaurants, stores etc. staff was nice, room was clean, parking was included, and we had a great time. And the price was reasonable for Rehoboth in season.

So enjoyed this older motel in a fabo location just blocks from the beach. Clean, comfortable room and friendly, helpful staff made our stay perfect. Surprisingly quiet--both mornings and late at night. Within walking distance of everything you need for a great stay.

The Sandcastle has a great location just a few blocks from the beach. The staff was very nice and friendly, and housekeeping did a good job of cleaning our room each day. The room itself was just fine - older furniture and TV, but everything worked! The little balcony off of the room was also nice. It was great to... More

I went with my family it's a really nice hotel and close to everything. It was perfect walking distance for the beach as well as food and shopping and hanging out for everyone. The room was really nice and clean and great to come back to after a fun day. We all really loved the pool and balcony along with... More

This motel could do with a facelift, but despite this our stay was delightful. Friendly helpful staff. One downside was lack of a safe. We thought there was one, but it turned out to be a very small metal box on the wall. The key didn't work and we gave up with it. The motel was a short walk from... More

Sandcastle is a budget motel in the heart of Rehoboth Beach, and its location makes it the perfect destination for any beach travelers on a budget. And yes, their price during the on-season is a deal compared to the other hotels in the area. The rooms do have that old school motel vibe, but the staff makes sure that they... More

Our room was clean, the beds were comfortable and we had a small refrigerator. We didn't go in the pool but it looked nice. Hotel staff were very friendly. Parking was a bit tight, but we really didn't drive much because the motel was close to everything. Lots of restaurants, stores to shop and the boardwalk/beach was two blocks away.... More
