One of the few motels in Wildwood that allow for a one night stay on a summer weekend. Yes the decor is dated but the room was very clean. The balcony in our room was an additional treat. We arrived much earlier than anticipated and Angela checked on our room and it was ready for early check in. Angela was... More

Arrived early was allowed to check in with no problem. Manager was extremely nice and helpful. Room was clean but dated. Given great room location. Pool very clean and well kept. Place just needs a little work and updates..serves the purpose..maid never came and cleaned one night..but friendly staff lets you overlook some things.

We had a really good time here. Definitely good for a family. My granddaughter loved to take a dip in the pool every night. We stayed on the Stockton Rd side of the motel and it was very quiet. The room was clean, and kept well. The TV was quite out-of-date, not a modern flat screen, no place to attach... More

Stayed here this past week and thought I'd share so others would be aware. Only some of the rooms have been slightly refurbished, others not at all. Even though our room had a new very comfortable mattress, and fairly clean rugs. The frig had to be replaced on our second day due to the extremely old one that never got... More

I am sorry for your inconveniences, I ordered a new refrigerator for that room to replace the one before your check in because it was old and shabby looking. I still have it and it works just fine. I did not know there was a refrigerator not working in a room. I always have 2 smaller ones on hand. I... More

The Sandcastle motel exceeded my expectations! My boyfriend and I booked a last-minute trip to Wildwood and we're thankful that we were able to stay here! This is by no means a frilly hotel, but it has all the basics! A block from the beach, a pool, and a parking lot where you can see your car. It was a... More

I was taken a back by the condition of the rooms and the high price we paid for this hotel. Very outdated and in need of a face lift as well as an interior redesign. Mattresses appeared to have not been changed for a while. Mine had a large digit in it and spongy. Not enough electrical outlets and tv... More

We have been vacationing in Wildwood Crest for many years, and we have never had such a disgusting experience. At the time of booking the room, the administration mislead us and were not honest about the motel, its condition and services. Upon arrival and check-in, we went to our room and were in total shock. We found the room deteriorated,... More

I have been coming to the Island for many, many years- often several times per summer. Sandcastle reminds me of all the good things there are about staying in one of the smaller- Doo-Wop style motels in WWC. It is family oriented, quiet, and is run by a staff that really cares about you and your family having a great... More
