This rustic restaurant was rebuilt after Katrina destroyed it. The fish was lightly breaded and very tasty. Large menu selection. Specialize in creole seasonings and sauce. Not far from the beau rivage.beachy casual.

We stayed at Castle in the Sand for three days. We were, I think, in the oldest part of the hotel which has three different buildings. Our room was clean but had a weird smell and looked and felt dated. We were on the second floor and had an ok view of the ocean. The beach is absolutely beautiful and...

Stayed here in April of 2015. Great place. The view is amazing. We were on the highest level with a balcony. Beautiful, but my next visit will be the top floor with the glass windows floor to ceiling looking out at the ocean. Definitely will be returning.

We just came back home from a 4 day stay. Special: rent for 3, get one free day. We stayed in the Waverly Castle oceanfront efficiency. Third floor. The view was beautiful, the beach is awesome, the room had everything: stove, two burners/microwave, coffee maker, toaster, silverware/pots/pans, dishes, glasses, coffee cups, dish soap, sink of course. The staff are wonderful....

I loved this place! I booked a room here to take my mother away for her birthday and my aunt that came from Pennsylvania. The staff was excellent, they stood up when you enter the door. They sent me a text message to tell me my room was ready and called me within the hour because I haven't checked in...

Nice place very chilled out, with a nice staff. The place could use a little updating, but it is right on the beach! The views are amazing. Could be a little cleaner, but not totally terrible. A little musty and dusty. The beds were comfortable and the breakfast restaurant in the hotel was good. The staff is very nice !...

I can't believe all of the good reviews. I experienced none of this. We stayed in room 2 of the original building. The entire porch by the pool had water pooled on it, which came into the room and soaked the floor. The entire place smells like mold. You could not walk anywhere near that. Then oh my gosh, the...

Thank you for your review. Although I don't doubt you experienced some of these issues I want to mention that the door thresholds are designed in such a way that prevents rain water from entering the unit. That being said our staff is always happy to help in any way possible and our cleaning standards are quite high. Any guest...

I stayed in The Waverly building March 17th-19th for my 6th year in a row scrapbooking weekend. It is a nice set up and I am glad the hotel allows us to do this. The view from our room to the ocean is always incredible to wake up to each morning. The location is great too. So close to many...

This hotel is not fancy. It is clean, but old. The reason I recommend it so highly is that it is oceanfront and has the best outdoor bar with live music! The Happy Hour is the best in town. The crowd is always fun and the staff is friendly and helpful. Do they need to upgrade the hotel? Yes, but...

Ladies weekend at OCMD staying at CITS. This was our 10th anniversary. We love it here. The balcony with ocean view is breathtaking! What a wonderful gesture by the staff as they treated us with a complimentary bottle of wine placed in the bucket of sand (how appropriate!) with fresh flowers to celebrate our 10th year. We love the atmosphere...
