This is the first place I have stayed in OC that has waitress service on the beach. Those girls are working their butts off delivering drinks and lunches to the beach and on hot sand!! I hope everyone continues to treat them well! That is hard work. We stayed in the Waverly Castle in a standard room, two double beds. The room was somewhat updated and clean; however, the age of the building still shows. This hotel has two dinning options, Coconuts Tiki Bar Cafe
and The Beach House Buffet.
First, Coconuts is a fun, outdoor bar area with an outstanding happy hour from 5-6 where the drinks are 2 for 1 and serves decent food. Second, The Beach House is in the "basement" of the North Castle. You go down a flight of stairs and walk past an operational hotel service area to reach the entrance. Average breakfast-just wasn't our favorite place.
Location, Location, Location! You can't beat the central OC, oceanfront location. Easy access to town buses, within walking distance to the Convention Center and Jolly Rogers Amusement Park- and almost everything else!
We loved the beach service, view from our balcony and all of the staff were friendly. We will return to the Castle in the Sand.
