The hotel was in need of extreme remodeling. The carpet was dingy and old. There were cracks in the ceiling. We were woken many times to people slamming doors. You could hear people in their room talking. The garage was low in height and narrow. The staff was friendly and the breakfast was good.

Could have some upgrades. Need more handicap accessibility especially with the pool. They said they upgraded it, but a handicap person cannot use the ladders to get in and out of the pool. Need to put stairs to get in and out. Need to put lower tubs in handicap rooms.

Room was clean, everyone was nice, and the breakfast was good!! Again I will stay and recommend anyone to stay at this great establishment. Only thing I would suggest that it be enough food or the late comers to breakfast.

Paint on wall all bubbled up in long streaks running down the wall. Definitely needs refurbishing. Free breakfast is nice to have but there was a ton of smoke and the smell of grease was overwhelming from the omelette station - stayed in our clothes all day. Rap music playing in the breakfast room - really? Beds were uncomfortable. Staff...

We went on February and was abit cold but my kids had a. Last with the heated indoor pool. Great location right on the broadwalk and near everything you need and want to see. Good and attentive staff. Real fast is awesome and had good variety and always stock when stuff was running out. I recommended.

My wife and I spend a few days at the beach several times a year. This trip, we decided to spend two days on my birthday at the Sandcastle. What an unfortunate mistake that was. Check-in and general facilities were OK. With that, we were willing to accept the slow and occasionally unreliable Internet connection and decided against the free...

I did not do a thorough research before I booked a reservation. I just avoided places rated low. I did not expect much when I made a reservation. But I was pleasantly surprised how clean and neat the room was. The bed was excellent. The ocean view was magnificent from the 9th floor. The complimentary breakfast was as good as...
