If you need a decent place to stay without blowing the budget than I would opt for the Sandcastle Resort. This place has great staff, beautiful oceanfront views and great Pools/Jacuzzis. However, this hotel is quite old and shows its age. I stayed in an efficiency but also spent time in one of the "owned condos" which was a King suite. There really wasn't much difference. I think the appliances were stainless steel in the King suite compared to ours in the efficiency. The kitchen is also very small. While preparing food it was difficult getting everything to fit in the small area, as the only table in the room was across the room by the balcony.
The bathrooms appeared to have updated sinks and tubs. However, this couldn't hide the fact that the bathroom needed major work on the floors and the ceilings. There were cracks all over the resort which had me wondering if the whole place was on the verge of falling down around us.
Didn't have problems with sound - but the hotel was virtually empty, which is why I guess they took my bid online for the weekend. Although I thought the staff was friendly, I didn't like being "required" to check out. Especially, since my bill was paid in advance. They simply "wanted to know" when folks left. Why? Give me a break. I haven't had to physically go to the desk to check out from a hotel in ions. Retro requirements for a retro resort.
