“Crappy Motel, Great Location, Great Price”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed July 30, 2011

The motel is just one block from ocean. You can get a somewhat ocean view if you get a room on the second or third floor. The walls are thin and we could hear the conversations next door. The location is generally very quiet and very close to some nice little restaurants and a a very short walk to a small market/grocery store. We bought fresh fruit there and took it with us to the beach. We decided to choose this hotel for location and price. It was $100 cheaper than any other hotel in the same area for the same dates. Ceiling was peeling. Room smelled musty. The corners in the bathroom looked as if they were never touched. The sheets were clean. The AC-we were either to hot or too cold. There were cigarette ashes on our towels and clothes that we hung on chairs on the balcony over night to dry. If you are only using the room to sleep like we did, it was okay. It had a mini-fridge. The room had a TV with minimal channels. We were price hunting because we wanted to stretch our bucks so we could stay longer and the motel worked for that situation.

This hotel is very old and well worn. It does need some updating, but the room and bathroom were clean, the beds were comfortable and free parking! We never used our car the entire trip! The shower had good pressure and always had hot water.yeah the hallways were a little dingy they needed more light and maybe some color to it but I never felt unsafe. the pool area had a funky odor ( too much chlorine?) but the water was ok and we enjoyed swimming in the pool. great location 2 blocks from boardwalk and restaurants.We had 4 double beds in our room so for a larger family the price and location were well worth it. Plus free wifi!. I will stay here again!

My husband and I stayed at the Sandcastle over the weekend to celebrate our first wedding anniversary. The motel was clean and the staff was friendly. Check in is at 3:00, but we arrived at 11:00am. We are able to check in at 11:00am without an additional fee. The motel has the best rates and is only two blocks from the ocean. We could see the ocean from our room, which didn't cost any extra. The parking garage is a tigh squeeze if you have a dually. I rate this motel a 4!

The title of this review pretty much says it all... If you want a clean, friendly motel, for a good value that is located in the center of town. The Sandcastle is your spot!!!

This motel is a couple blocks from the beach, convient to everything. It is a very basic and no frills kinda place but the staff is very friendly and the rooms are very clean. We were able to park our car and forget about it. hard to believe how good the price is considering the prices of all the hotels in the area. Be going back to Rehoboth soon and won't stay anywhere BUT the SandCastle.
