“better than I thought”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed June 5, 2006

I stayed at this Motel last weekend and it was much better than I thought (June 2006). The rooms were clean and adequate. The pool was clean and adequate as well. The location is great and the rooms served there purpose. It's not the best, but definitely not the worse I have seen. The Motel was not crowded- possibly because we went early in the seaon. The parking lot can be difficult. The upper level was easier to navigate. Hint park so that you get a clear shot at the entrance/exit. There is no Internet access so -this does make for a truly restful vacation. The televisions are a few years old and do not have any video/audio inputs for video games or portable dvd players, the cable was survivable- one kids channel cartoon network, espn, book world and others. There is an ice machine $.25 for ice and a vending machine. My room did not have an alarm clock which can be good or bad depending on your perspective. The sink and refrigerator were clean. Overall the motel was fine there were 14 people in our party in 4 rooms and no one complained. About 3 blocks 5-7 minute walk from beach.

Stayed June 2006

I loved that we could walk to everything - there was a very cozy sushi bar in the front of the motel that was very good. Would definitely return

We enjoyed our stay at the Sandcastle. Our room fit our needs: refrigerator, two double beds, and a sink separate from the bathroom made it easier to get ready. We loved the private (small but a least something) balcony. The cleanliness of our room was above average, but not excellent. The pool water was murky and the area around did not seem clean at all. The sun deck off of the pool was nice. The front desk was nice and helpful. Overall, the stay was lovely.

Stayed here for 2 weekend nights and found it to be pretty basic in decor but clean. Room seemed like a modest effort at renovation had been made in recent years. Location is 2 blocks from the beach and on Rehoboth Ave. It's convenient, quiet, and there's free parking. Also has an indoor pool (though I never checked that out).
