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

The motel was a dump! Crudd in the bath, paint peeling off dismal hall walls, creepy elevator, hair on pillows......gave us creeps. But...they don't mind charging high rent for all this crap. Tearing it down would be the only way to improve this flea bag.

Pros: The location is great and right in the heart of Rehoboth Beach. It's very convenient to great restaurants, local shops and just a few blocks to the beach. Cons: The hotel is outdated, and the beds aren't very comfortable. The hotel is located right next to a municipal building that runs a very loud test siren daily.

My children and I have been staying at this motel for 3 years and we absolutely love it. We would not stay anywhere else. It is cozy and quaint and everything we need. The staff has always been nothing but polite to us and the cleaning personnel do a wonderful job. I have never seen any bugs in the room... More

Please do yourself the pleasure of NOT staying at this 'mold' filled property.No a/c in hallways, dead roachs under table in bedroom, rate was $260 plus for the free coffee(one container in lobby); and elevator no a/c. Indoor pool is not sanitary.Don't ask me about the 'meeting room'. I would not return if it was Free.

My friends and I decided to go away together and spend the weekend in Rehoboth Beach. We hit the outlets and the boardwalk, but our favorite part was where we stayed. Our room was neat and clean with a cute private balcony. The pool was nice and warm even though it was chilly outside during our stay. The sundeck was... More

Pros: Me and my girlfriends stayed here the weekend before memorial day. Bill, our go to guy at the motel, was very courteous and professional and made sure our stay was an absolute positive experience. The motel's location is walking distance to the boardwalk and is adjacent to the Conch Island bar which featured live music during our stay. The... More

A recent stay at the Sandcastle Motel was a positive experience all the way around. While this is an older type motel, the bathrooms are new and the rooms are clean and comfortable. The office staff was friendly. The location is central to everything Rehoboth. The price was the best in town for off season.
