“Just Right for our Family Vacation”
Reviewed July 19, 2012

We were looking for the best value in a Myrtle Beach oceanfront hotel suite for our July 4th family vacation and we found it! Our room was clean and comfortable, we had a lovely view of the ocean from our balcony, we prepared and ate several meals in our room, lwe oved the attached parking garage, and the location was was very convenient for us. The 3 front desk clerks I dealt with during our stay were all courteous and accommodating. When I reported that our living room air conditioner was leaking water, a maintenance guy came right up and fixed it. And when the maid cleaned our room one day and had run out of bath towels, I called the front desk and towels were delivered within minutes.

We booked this resort through our timeshare at the last minute. Our first opinion when we drove was "not so bad". The lobby was clean and the front desk staff was helpful. All rooms are ocean front and there is quick and easy access to the beach.

The rooms are VERY DATED. We are in great need of updating. The rooms are quite small and we just have a family of four...2 adults and 2 children under the age of 8. A coat of paint would not hurt the room. Also, the furniture really can use some updating. There were stains on our couch and pillows, the sheets had rips in them...etc. The balcony is very small, the four of us could barely fit on the balcony at the same time. There is a central hub for washers and dryers...no access within the rooms. The curtains are old and dingy looking, the bed spreads are very dated as well. We are booked to stay for a full week, however we will be leaving early because of the room size...we feel like we are on top of each other. I would consider coming back if I saw the updates made.

My husband and I had a great time and will definitely come back! The view from our balcony was spectacular! The staff was very friendly and helpful. They helped us find many fun places to visit during our stay. Our room was clean and comfortable.

We stayed in oceanfront efficiency deluxe...Loved it, very clean and the kitchenette was great (wonderful to have a stove, fridge and microwave)! Cooked lunch in the room on one day of our stay, breakfast one morning..to save a little on eating expenses and ate both these meals on the balcony overlooking the beautiful ocean...Loved it!... We found this hotel online and booked through Expedia. Loved the pool and the lazy river...Another good choice we made when selecting a hotel we'd never stayed in, we would definitely stay again.

The best things about this hotel are its fabulous oceanfront location and the friendly, warm staff. Beyond these two things, it is in the same league as an hourly place. We will NEVER stay here again! This was our 5th trip to MB & first time we stayed here. True, we dont drive 12 hours to stay in the room and watch TV. But we always like to stay places where that is an option. It is not an option here. Limited cable, no pay per view or even a DVD, old grainy TVS, stains everywhere, rusty appliances, marks on walls. My wife had to fumigate with Lysol and bought wipes. But, you cant clean rust and old age! The outdoor pools were dirty. The whirlpools looked nasty. And, the indoor pools had so many chemicals, when i opened the door my face burned. They ran out of bath towels and washcloths every day. And, be prepared to drive to do anything but lay on the beach.

This is the first time we stayed at the Sandcastle. We got a great deal online. We were to check in on a Saturday. We always travel at night when the kids can sleep (we are driving from Ohio). We we arrived at the hotel our room was not ready but we were there several hours before check in. I went back a couple of times to see if our room was ready but it was not. But that was okay since it did say check in time was 4:00. Please keep that in mind because I wasn't the only person trying to get in early. They did however offer us pool towels and told me to take my family and enjoy the pool or ocean. The were very nice at the front desk. Once we got checked in and made it to our room we had a great view. I had ask to be put on the highest floor and they did a great job. We were put on the 14th floor. The hotel was old but had been updated. Every day the brought us clean towels and the room was always clean when we came back. No missing items and they were always nice when you came into contact with them. The lazy river was great. We had a blast!!! Thanks Sandcastle for the great service! :)

Im not completely sure but I think this is the 15th stay we have had at this resort.overall good place for family's nice rooms and good amenities. This time down housekeeping was a hit or miss for both rooms we rented and the cable TV was messed up all week and one of the refrigerators didn't work properly and neither issue was resolved before leaving but then again I didn't drive 375 miles to watch TV so i didn't really pay much attention to that. Defiantly not the newest joint on the strip but for the age and as many folk that pass thru there in a season still one of in my opinion the better resorts for price and accomidations. One thing I would like to see change would be visible staff on the pool and lazy river area to maintain order in these areas as some irresponsible parents let there children run around like jungle folk and mess it up for everyone. I have a 3 and 5 year old and every year same thing others running through the lazy river and throwing tubes and such surprised there hasn't been an injury or lawsuit over this. Anyway still my choice for July 4 vacation week.

Room Tip: When reserving a room specify you don't want a room beside the extended portion.s of the buildin...
