My boyfriend and I stayed at the Caste by the Sea a few weeks ago. It was an awesome spot and the owner was extremely helpful and kind! I would recommend this place to anyone. I will absolutely be going back!

I spent 9 nights here in late October/early November 2014. The hotel is small (less than 20 rooms) and provides parking. It's a 2 minute walk to the beach and 5 minutes' walk to restaurants and shops. Less than 10 minutes' walk north is a shopping center with supermarket, pharmacy and other stores and restaurants. Lauderdale by the Sea is... More

Small hotel 5 minutes walk from the beach, shops and restaurants. The owner is very friendly and extremely helpful. The room was large with a microwave (the supermarket is close by). There was free wi fi which worked well. There is a small clean swimming pool. The new owner is in the process of refurbishing the hotel. We would happily... More

We wanted to spent 1 night at first but extended our stay for 2 more nights since the place is just so lovely. The owner is very nice, its a perfect hotel for young couples. You are even allowed to use the barbecue grill at the pool if you desire. 2 minutes away from the beach

JC the wonderful new French owner has many plans to update and improve Castle By The Sea, but he says he'll retain the retro charm that drew me there for a very affordable scuba diving and snorkeling vacation. With it's tile floors and large walk in closet my efficiency was perfect for hanging a lot of damp gear. The owner... More

We stayed 4 days in October 2013 at castle by the sea. It was our last destination after an 'exhausting' florida round trip. Daniel is such a nice and friendly guy. His 'castle' is really like a small paradise. He is working all day long for the castle and it's visitors. Price is acceptable. We hope that daniel will be... More

My wife and I had a relaxing and rejuvenating weeklong stay in early April. The hotel is one block from the beach, and lots of nice restaurants and bars. Our room was very clean (if simple), and the grounds were well manicured and relaxing. Maybe the best part is the friendly and caring staff. Dan, the manager, bent over backwards... More
