This is our second time staying at the Sandcastle Inn. We stayed in a jr suite with ocean views (our room looked out to the pier and you could easily see the waves from both windows and the large balcony. The jr sutie is larger thatn the other rooms (chair, footstool, coffee table, sofa, dining table and 4 chairs along with a large, flat screen TV, microwave, mini fridge and a fireplace. THhe balcony was larger than the other balconies with 2 chairs, a small table and 2 chaise lounges. The hotel is clean, comfortable, perhaps a bit dated but it is right on the beach. The rooms are very, very clean, they have a hot tub downstairs, a firepit overlooking the ocean on the top floor (3rd floor). There is a fireplace in the breakfast room, with a vie of the ocean. The continental breakfast is included with the room. The breakfast is not too bad for a free, continental breakfast. The have a hot waffle station where you make your own fresh begian waffles, toast, bagels, pastires, scones, several cold ceareals, hot oatmeal, with brown sugar and raisins on the side, instant packages of oatmeal, yogurt, hard boiled eggs, jucies coffee, tea and milk. The hotel is within walking distance to the boardwalk area and pier (you can see them from the hotel and it takes less than 5 minutes to walk to either. They are oceanfront, so you leave the hotel and walk over the sidewalk to get to the sand. They also serve fresh cookies in the afternoon. The staff is very, very friendly and helpfull. Overall, we would come back to this nice motel on the beach.
