The furniture was a little dated but the staff was very nice

I liked the access to the beach and the restaurant they have on site. I didn’t like how dirty it was.

Love Castle in the Sand will never stay at another hotel at ocean city in the summer!! Everything is amazing!

The staff was friendly. Food at Coconuts restaurant and bar was great.

Needs several of the public areas cleaned up significantly.

I decided to stay at Castle In The Sand for a COVID getaway and it did not disappoint. My room was super clean and bigger than I expected. The staff is super friendly and always willing to help. The hotel does need some upgrades but overall, it’s a great place to stay.

Went for the 4th of July weekend.The room was wonderful and big.The balcony on the 2nd floor was a great view to watch the fireworks.The pool was huge and the walk to beach was just a few steps.The band was good at the bar but gets really crowded.Had a wonderful time

the pool was outside, the bar was right there and so was the beach

Rude customer service Unwilling to accommodate Below average cleaness

I liked that the property was so close to the beach and had a restaurant/bar on the beach. I didn’t like that the cottages didn’t have wifi

I liked that the beach was right there. I loved that even though we were on the ground floor, we had our own little "porch". Having a door in the front and the back was really convenient.

The castle itself n all the beautiful decor outside

Our heat was broken on 1st night and we got in so late that we waited til morning to call to get it repaired. It was a very cold night. Heating unit needed to be replaced.

Great price, great location! Can't wait to come back next year!

Beautiful balcony view of the beach. Breakfast buffet was convenient. Staff was friendly and hotel was clean.
