              We enjoyed being right on the beach and able to rent bikes at the hotel. The free breakfast was a great plus. And it was a real breakfast not just bagels and juice. The other plus was there was a lot going on at night in walking distance near this hotel. We also found it nice that there was free beverages in the lobby.

              We found the staff at the desk to be not very knowledgeable about things for the tourist. I think they need to be educated on what is available for people to do. For example they were unable to give us information on the shuttle bus. How it worked, how much it cost, and where to buy tickets. This was a shame since it was very nice plus to get around and see the area. We used it the last day we were there but had wished we had known about it sooner.

              It was quite a bargin for the price - the exterior did not look too "fancy" but the room was clean, recently rennovated and quite comfortable. The view of the beach was great and we had a private balcony to enjoy this by ourselves.

              The location was great.

              Rooms were small. Also, my one year old son could stick his head through the railings of the balcony. So we had to keep that door shut at all times. Might want to look into putting extra bars so a child does not fall through them. We were on the 4th floor so it was dangerous.

            • Older travelers

              Right on the beach and every room has an ocean view. Complimentary breakfast was a full buffet. Pretty cheap off season. Parking was convenient. Elevators fairly fast, but you can't use the stairs to the main floor except for emergencies. Place was pretty clean and freshly painted so it was clean smelling. They seem to be doing a lot of work on it while we were there. Good size tub and having soap/shampoo dispensers in the bathtub area is a great idea. Plenty of towels.

              Rooms are smaller than they look online. Halls and rooms are pretty dark. Sink area is very small and outside the bathroom. No built in closet...it's a free standing piece of furniture which takes up room. Pool and hot tub were closed while we were there for rennovations...would have been nice to know that prior to booking. Gym is rather limited...tvs are placed in corners so you can't really watch them while on the treadmill/cycles.

              the buffet breakfast, wonderfull

              the pool was not open

              7.0

              We loved it being right on the Boardwalk and so close to the pier so we could get their awesome fudge in the store. The buffet breakfast is awesome.

              This is our second stay in about just over a month. We love the balcony, and the beds are comfortable, but the elevators are very slow, the hallways are very narrow on the end that we have been in both times, the rooms have been long but also very narrow and the bathroom in our last room was so small the door couldn't open all the way because of the towel rack and the sink was right at the doorway which made closing the door difficult.

              location, excellent view from the balcony, convenient parking ramp near the room,

              The bed was not as comfortable as I would have liked.

              The staff was so friendly everytime they saw us come into the lobby. It was the best vacation we've had in years. I did not have to call the desk for more towels or anything. It was just like being at home. Thanks to all the great peope who made our vacation great. We will definitely come back there to stay again.

              We loved staying at the San dcastle. We loved the full breakfast buffet and the kind greeter and the friendly staff. They went out of their way to make us feel welcome and cared for. Loved the location. Great Vacation at your Hotel!!!!

              Breakfast. Location.

              Bathroom size. It was difficult for a larger person to wipe themselves.

              The location, also fit our budget. Included breakfast, everyone was friendly and did their job well. We had a wonderful stay.

              Well the ocean view was excelent and the staff is very polite and kind. The rooms are big for a family and you also get a complete breakfast for the same price (is not a coffe and donut but a real breakfast). Parking was good and in the same level where your room is located. The fitness room has a very nice ocean view and is also included in the services. My family and I enjoyed staying at this place and we are planning ahead to go back next year. I also talk to my friends in my work place and recommend the Sand Casttle to them.

              on the boardwalk

              no sliding door on the balcony

              Friendly and curteous staff. Better breakfast than most "free" breakfast hotels. Room was comfortable and clean. Housekeeping staff on sixth floor is outstanding with her pleasant attitude and quick smile. Parking is a bit of a hassle but you dont need your car...once you're parked ...your parked!...Beach is just out the door with very clean sand and every convenience just a few steps away. Motor World...Aquarium...Water Park and rudys rocket is just a 5 minute drive. The fishing pier and rides are also just outside the door. This is a perfect location for a getaway or with the kids...Can't go wrong...Try the flounder with crab at the fishing pier and definetly eat greek. Yes! Can you tell we enjoyed our stay at the Sandcastle?

              You have very little space at entrance. This is an inconvenience when you have tour buses and a crowd waiting to check in. We had to wait in the right shoulder to move up as people checked in. You cannot park until after check in...
