For many years, we have been staying at the wonderful Castle in the Sand property on 37th street in Ocean City. This year was yet another in a long line of enjoyable stays. As usual, our room was clean and comfortable. The office staff were very friendly and accommodating. One thing I would like to mention was the new menu... More

This year my husband picked the little cabins that are at the corner block by the highway. When we first arrived I was a bit worried about the noise, but after being... More

Although this hotel has been around for a long time, it was in great shape! The room was spacious and very clean. The entire housekeeping staff spoke to us whenever we encountered them. They were very pleasant. We also enjoyed the outdoor bar and live music. Great staff overall.

We stayed for a week and had a great experience and trip. The hotel staff was super nice and attentive. We stayed in a one bedroom condo that was nice, clean, comfortable and just a short minute walk or so to the beach, pool, or office. We were on the 2nd floor with a balcony with a side view of...

Great location right on the beach with a large pool and outdoor restaurant/ bar. Room was large and renovated with a great beachside patio with 2 lounge chairs in the sand-We had a waverly first floor unit. Only complaint is that the handicapped room shower flooded the bathroom a bit. Nice having a full kitchen although we only used the... More

High price in comparison to other in area. Soundproofing in room poor. You can hear toilet being flushed from rooms above. You can hear constant door slamming. No courtesy... More
