At first, we read many comments before booking a room at the sandcastle. we were quite unsure whether we would go to stay over there because off all those bad comments. 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

Wow, I sure am glad I decided to ignore all the negative reviews about this motel. When we checked in I had a really good feeling that everything was going to be fine. The desk staff were just as sweet as could be and so helpful. When we got off the elevator the hall was not some Hitchcock nightmare but... More

I stayed with my friend and our little girls and I have to say that I was not impressed at all. It looks like they have not updated their establishment since it was built years ago. The carpets are unraveling, the linoleum is coming up, the beds are uncomfortable, and the pool is awful. The t.v is very small as... More

I picked this motel because of its price and proximity to the Dogfish Head pub. When we went to check in, the hotel did not have my reservation on file. This is entirely Expedia's fault- not the hotel. Since it was still off season, they had no problem accommodating us. The room was a good size and clean. Typical best... More

I was so excited to take my son to the Sea Witch and Fiddle Fest for his 3rd Birthday. I reserved a room well in advance b/c I knew this would be a busy weekend and I have stayed here many times before. I walked into the room and there was NO safty lock on the door. As soon as... More

Reviews seemed ok so I booked the room through Expedia.com and got a great price for the Columbus Day weekend. Pulled into the very narrow parking garage, but I had a small car (I do not know how the SUVs make it). Check in was fast and easy and then up to my room. I was on the first floor... More

Have to concur with some of the previous reviews: the parking (on 2 levels) is tight as are the entry/exit ramps; the place has a "faded" feeling (especially the hallways at night); the location is fantastic for shopping/dining but it is 2 long blocks to the beach (get a cart for big loads and/or kids). However, we found the (king-size)... More

My family and a friend stayed at Sandcastle and found it most accommodating for the money and location. When I first saw some of the reviews, I was hesitated but our room (308) was great. Quite clean and good condition. It was adequate for us. It was far from the reviews I read before. The staff, especially Al and the... More

We needed an inexpensive hotel to host a Girl Scout weekend and this pace worked out just fine. It was hard to get a reservation anywhere for a reasonable price or 1 night stay since it was Greyhound Weekend. The rooms were a decent size and clean. The price was so good at the Sandcastle that we were able to... More
