I go to Rehoboth a few times a year, and have stayed in a number of different hotels and B&Bs. I regularly return to the Sandcastle because it is close to the beach, consistent, has a fridge and two beds in each room, and is a GREAT PRICE compared to other properties. The front desk staff are friendly, and I've... More

The motel itself is quite old and dingy, with no recent updates that I could see. The price is less than the surrounding hotels, and since there was very little available when I was there, I booked here. I will probably look elsewhere in the future. The staff was friendly and accommodating, and did their best to make it a... More

My friend and I stayed here Labor Day weekend. She woke up at 12 am telling me bugs were biting her. She had welts on her fingers, wrist and ears from where they bit her. The motel refunded us for the room, but we had to convince them to pay for us to stay somewhere else, since it was so... More

i read a few really scary reviews and was immediately afraid of what I'd find. I was pleasantly surprised to find that this cheap little no frills hotel was exactly what I needed. It has not changed in 20 years. It's the same furniture but now chipped and dented. It gives character to the place. It is super clean due... More

Looked into going to another area hotel but every place was booked over the Lanor Day weekend The shower curtain was coated with mildew! There were stains on the walls The Bathroom mirror was corroded and the fixtures all had rust on them... More

Stayed here with a friend over Labor Day weekend. I was awoken by bugs biting me in bed at 1am! They did refund our money, and after a long discussion, agreed to send and pay for us to stay at a really low grade motel called High Seas (which didn't even have a smoke alarm). We were disgusted and I... More

I booked on Labor Day NIGHT. After a long hot summer and a holiday weekend I was surprised how gracious and kind the reception. My room was SPOTLESS! The facility is old let's be clear. This is not a 4 star hotel. The location is fantastic, though be aware u are near a firehouse . I had no problem with... More

No, not the cleanest or prettiest but who cares!! You're at the beach. Perfect location and front desk staff was the best!! Can't beat the price for not having to drive anywhere. Walk to any restaurant your taste buds desire. Plus no parking meters, yay!

First and foremost, this is DEFINITELY a motel. Here are some of the pros: LOCATION: Perfect. Within walking distance of boardwalk, restaurants and shops, but not too close to all of the noise. PRICE: The price for Labor Day of 200/night, was among the lower price point in Rehoboth we could find for a trip booked with a week notice... More

I would definitely recommend this motel. The rooms were clean and perfectly functional. The staff was FANTASTIC - so friendly and helpful. LOVED the pool deck with its comfortable loungers and fun views of the main drag. From their we could hear the live music from the bar across the street (not loud, just right!) - my kids loved hanging... More
