We are able to check in at 11:00am without an additional fee. The motel has the best rates and is only two blocks from... More

The title of this review pretty much says it all... If you want a clean, friendly motel, for a good value that is located in the center of town. The Sandcastle is your spot!!!

We were able to park our car and forget about it. hard to believe how good the price is considering the prices of all the hotels... More

We book our rooms in January as this particular week sells out the hotel by July 4th. The hotel is older than many in Rehoboth, but we always have air conditiong or heat if we need it and... More

2 blocks from the boardwalk and on Rehoboth Ave. Indoor pool, off-street parking. Beds were very comfortable. So close to all that rehoboth has to offer that there was no better place to stay. Although the motel is a little dated, for the price who cares. We went on vacation to enjoy the ocean, boardwalk and the dining, not to... More

Anyway, when we got there it's not like all those complaints, we really impressed with this place very much. First thing is all service staffs, they're very nice, friendly,... More
