Hotel was just OK. No frills. I travel around the country all and stay in hotels 2-3 times per month. If you are used to staying in a national chain hotel, this is not even close in quality. Outdated room decor and dirty common areas made me want to check out as soon as possible. Not worth the $200/night price... More

Castle in the Sand is located directly on the beach. The view from the oceanfront balcony is gorgeous. The staff were helpful and Coconuts restaurant was convenient. The room itself was fine, with a mini kitchen and good-working air-conditioning. The balcony was small with dated furniture. The wait for the elevator was often lengthy. Internet service was inconsistent, sometimes not... More

Waverly building definitely needs upgrading. Pretty bad mixed old decor (room 4003 in particular). The room smelled so much to cleaning products that it was a bit toxic & we needed to open the balcony door. Furniture too old you don't feel comfortable sitting on it. Halls walls also need upgrading. You feel you stepped in a 1960 hotel that... More

I booked an oceanfront room with a balcony for my family of 4 (2 kids). I knew it wasn't going to be a 5-star experience but for the cost, etc. I was expecting at least 3.5. The room was clean but not maintained. The chain lock to the balcony door was busted and dangling. The blinds were missing a few.... More

I recently stayed there with some of my sons baseball team so we had plenty of adults and children of different age groups. We stayed on the top floor of Waverly castle with a beautiful ocean view. The room is definitely old and in need of updating but a coat of white paint and new appliances in the kitchen would... More

We having been coming to Ocean City every year for the past 15 years and this is the first time I was disappointed. Let me start with the good things first. The staff was very friendly and helpful. Stayed in the one bedroom cottages which were nice. We really loved that there was a kitchen so we can cook. Eating... More

Was a great stay again this year. Same routine. Loved every minute of it. Seems the drinks at coconuts were better this year. Went in the pool a couple of times for a change. Water was clean and felt good. A great way to rinse off the salt and sand from the beach before going up to the room. Was... More
