A Tripadvisor Member wrote a review Aug 2020
We booked our room at the last minute at the Sand Castle Inn. The accommodations were adequate. The room was not as clean as other hotels/motels I have stayed in. When I went to the front desk to ask for extra pillows, the person on duty questioned me as to why I needed extra pillows because there were four in the room. I had to explain to him that I have cervical spine issues and need to sleep in a somewhat upright position. I've never had any other place I've stayed question me on my need for extra pillows. It was a place to sleep for the night that accommodated pets, which we needed on our road trip.

It was such a great room. I love parking right in front of my room. Very clean and comfortable. And there’s a delicious pizza and pasta restaurant next door. Best chicken marsala ever! No complaints here!

Very clean and quiet. The beds were comfortable and pillows too! I would definitely stay here again should I return. It was near shopping and restaurants which was convenient. Very close to attractions.

NOT PET-FRIENDLY SCAM!!! First off we got this on HotelTonight. When we checked in he asked if we have a pet and I responded "yes". He then proceeded to say that they charge a $30/night fee for pets for a $50-60/night hotel. I was like WTF, were does it say that? He said that it was on every website listed as a pet fee. So I proceeded to look at several webpages where it is listed as PET-FRIENDLY almost everywhere you look... EXCEPT FOR THEIR OWN WEBSITE which lists it as "No Pets Allowed". I pointed that out to the owner and he just dismissed it. I did look at our check-in from HotelTonight and the $30/pet/night was listed. I'm guessing this is the classic bait and switch where they don't have to pay the online service extra money... but wait, I'm going to review them on HotelTonight. Rooms were small and updated, nothing too exciting but it is a $50-60 hotel room. Towels were paper thin and had to use two to get dry. The bed was comfortable enough but on the smallest size for a queen. Walls were pretty thin and could hear neighbors talking. Location is just outside of downtown so you will have to Uber/Lyft to get to downtown activities. It is close to the trail that goes by the ocean/beach so that was a nice run. Overall if you don't have pets and don't mind that the owners are lying scammers this is exactly what the $50-60/night lives up to. Ok, onto the next site to give them another review... :)

We were pleased to host you at our hotel recently, thank you for choosing to stay with us. We are happy to welcome pets to the hotel, but there is a cost associated with cleaning a room after a pet leaves, and we do charge the guest for this. Compared with other hotels, we feel that our fee is very reasonable, it is a pity that it seemed so high to you. We are sorry that this spoiled your impression of our hotel to such an extent. Kind regards, Customer Care Team
