My wife and I stayed in Cottage C3...2nd floor, one bedroom, just past the huge pool. The cottage was clean and cozy with a kitchen and FULL SIZE refrigerator. Plenty of room to store refrigerated supplies. The bath room was tight...imagine taking a shower in a phone booth ! A couple of minor adjustments would go a long way: turn... More

Castle In The Sands is located in the center of all attractions. The staff was extremely polite and very helpful. The food at the Coconut restaurant was very good but the drinks are pretty weak. The outside of the elevator located on the main floor can do with a complete wash down and disinfectant as it is filthy, however, the... More

The room I stayed in, cottage H4, was a TOTAL dive. It needs some SERIOUS updating! Even the mattresses were ridiculously bad. And don't get me started on the pull out sofa....!! Also, the main hotel itself was pretty shabby too, including the restaurant. However, the proximity to the beach was AWESOME, it wasn't too expensive, the housekeeping person was... More

I stayed at the Castles in the Sand Hotel from from 8/20 - 8/24. I went with my sister and some very good family friends of ours. Overall we had a great time. The location of Castles in the Sand is ideal. The hotel itself is comprised of three buildings and some cottages. The property is located right on the... More

We came here for a family weekend getaway to Ocean City. We stayed in a two bedroom suite which was really huge and ocean front which was nice. The room definitely could use updating, but it was probably one of the biggest hotel rooms or sweets we have ever been in. Had some difficulty with the TVs at times, and... More

Clean accommodations friendly staff and a great restaurant called Coconuts. Maybe the best crab cake sandwich ever! Excellent pool, walking distance to the boardwalk, simply a very fine vacation. The place can use some updating here and there but you cannot beat how clean this place is. Great value with the all you can eat breakfast, loved the outdoor movie... More

This is a mixed review. The staff was friendly and the location was great. The property needs to be updated. The room we had, 202, had stains on carpet, bench, and a bad patch job on a wall. The only modernized area was the kictchen, which was very nice. The outside walkways need to be cleaned on a daily basis... More

This the first time in the north castle in 10 years or so..... and the rooms didn't look any different.... The first thing we always... More

My wife and I stayed in a beachfront waverly in August 2015. The room was never cleaned appropriately everyday. We came back from the beach on our first full day and found our beds were made by pulling up the covers and pillows thrown in a pile at the head of bed. The next day, the sand on was still... More
