The floor was slanted. It smelled like cleaning supplies masking something bad. The refrigerator leaked. The front desk was closed from 7PM to 9AM. The bed was old and lumpy. And it wasn't even much of a bargain. The only saving grace was the view. It's right on the ocean.

We slept so well on King bed on 3rd floor. Very simple, older room but amazing view of ocean. We were steps from the beach. Bring your aqua sock shoes for rocky part of beach ...full of agates. Very accommodating managers. Clean and simple lodging at great price. We will return for view, bed and ocean.

Stunning view right on the beach. Quiet large rooms with refrigerator and microwave. The level of room service cleaning seemed to decrease each day but it was still acceptable. Loved listening to the ocean and having quick access to the beach. Beach fires not allowed in the motel area and that keeps the smell of smoke down at night. Super... More

This is a cute little complex and each room has beautiful ocean views. The staff was friendly and helpful. But... the room smelled of urine - it was clean, but didn't smell so :( Thankfully we were able to have the slider door open the whole time. Unfortunately with the door open came cigarette smoke wafting in from the neighboring... More

Fancy, it's not, but if you are looking for a clean place, right on the beach, for a reasonable price, this one fits perfectly. We had a room on the ground floor, that has a full kitchen, a bedroom, a living room with a queen bed, 2 recliners, enough room for a rollaway (there were 5 of us), and a... More

The Sandcastle is definitely an older hotel that looks a bit rundown from the outside, but for the price it was a great find. It is right on the ocean and our room (and I think all rooms) have an ocean view. We had a king bed which we always enjoy. Nothing really stood out good or bad (except for... More

Older hotel but was quite clean. The view from our room was awesome looking out towards the ocean. Fun having a balcony to go out on. We had a fireplace too even though we didn't need it. I have only one complaint, there was a funky odor in the room which smelled somewhat like animal urine. I realize we are... More

We stopped for one night at this hotel; it was clean, convenient, and right on the beach. For what we needed it for, it was perfect, but a longer stay we may have required more amenities. Also, be sure to keep in mind the hotel office closes at 10pm, so there is a deadline to check in.

They have no A/C! We came to escape the heat but instead had to suffer in 90 degree heat in our room. (It was 60 degrees outside) When we opened the windows to get fresh air, all we could smell was cigarette smoke from people on the patios around us. When I discussed the temperature with the employee at the... More

While this is an older property the rooms are clean, comfortable, and well kept. Had a third floor room with a balcony and a fireplace that kept the room nice and toasty on a rainy day. The beach in front of the hotel is beautiful and walkable for several miles to the north.
