“We love you Sandcastle Motel”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 12, 2013

My children and I have been staying at this motel for 3 years and we absolutely love it. We would not stay anywhere else. It is cozy and quaint and everything we need. The staff has always been nothing but polite to us and the cleaning personnel do a wonderful job. I have never seen any bugs in the room as I have read in other reviews. We love our home away from home!

Please do yourself the pleasure of NOT staying at this 'mold' filled property.No a/c in hallways, dead roachs under table in bedroom, rate was $260 plus for the free coffee(one container in lobby); and elevator no a/c. Indoor pool is not sanitary.Don't ask me about the 'meeting room'.
I would not return if it was Free.

-The Motel is very well located, offers free parking and a friendly staff.
-Standard 1980's feel
-The rooms are very aged, but "You get what you pay for"
-Walls are thin, luckily you can drown out the sound with the A/C.
-Has FREE coffee in the lobby.
-Has FREE parking
-Has FREE wifi.

Room Tip: -I would NOT recommend a corner room with balcony, as the balcony backs up to the staircase and ever...

My friends and I decided to go away together and spend the weekend in Rehoboth Beach. We hit the outlets and the boardwalk, but our favorite part was where we stayed. Our room was neat and clean with a cute private balcony. The pool was nice and warm even though it was chilly outside during our stay. The sundeck was spacious and you can see all of Rehoboth Ave. The conch island bar was where we spent our late nights, with great music and drinks! Last but not least, Bill. He checked us in and continued to be helpful and kind throughout our entire stay. Thank you Bill for everything!

Pros: Me and my girlfriends stayed here the weekend before memorial day. Bill, our go to guy at the motel, was very courteous and professional and made sure our stay was an absolute positive experience. The motel's location is walking distance to the boardwalk and is adjacent to the Conch Island bar which featured live music during our stay. The room itself was tidy and clean. The motel features an indoor pool with the room kept heated (the pool itself is not heated just the room) and a sundeck adjacent to the pool on the 2nd floor which is nice for sunbathing and enjoying the view along the boardwalk. Last but not least, the price, for its location it was one of the cheapest places to stay in the area most other motels and hotels were almost double to triple the $$$

Cons: One of the reasons I believe it was so cheap to stay here is due to the outdated appearances of the Sandcastle motel. Its clear that the place could use a little paint job and a sort of facelift. I also hated the pillows (if you can call them that!)
I think some freshpaint, a little monetary investment into some new pillows, and updated appliances and I would have given this place 5 stars.

Overall: This place was great and we got what we expected considering the little bit of money we paid to stay here. I really enjoyed my weekend in Rehoboth and it was in large part due to the great service we received at this motel.

I will be coming back next year!

A recent stay at the Sandcastle Motel was a positive experience all the way around. While this is an older type motel, the bathrooms are new and the rooms are clean and comfortable. The office staff was friendly. The location is central to everything Rehoboth. The price was the best in town for off season.

Best location. Basic clean rooms. Friendly staff. Half the price of nearby properties. I agree that compared to the other more expensive hotels, it's kind of tired, but for the price and convenience, it hits the mark.

Room Tip: Rooms on the back, not facing the street are quieter.
