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.

Pillows and mattresses were old and not comfortable. Rooms were ok but not worth the price

Close to the beach. Not conducive to younger kids. Forced to walk through loud bar area to get to beach. Rooms are outdated and backwards. Beds are next to the door so when rowdy neighbors are coming back after hours your hearing them. This hotel is good for senior week and adults who care more about drinking than relaxing. There's better choices for $400 a night.

Nice place would come again. Noce people, clean place.

The staff was very accommodating. We were able to check in early and even check out late which was a huge help with small children. The hotel itself has free activities for the kids which was nice and the lounge was relaxing and had live music which was nice. We would definitely go back!

Had a great experience, right next to the beach and not far from other activities and yet far enough from the stupid tinyboppers near 1st street trying to pretend they are thug life. Even though the building seemed a bit old on the outside, the rooms were fixed up and everything including the kitchen was revovated so for my family this was not a problem and we will be visiting them again. Staff was great and quickly brought us a crib withou hesitating for my 2 y/o
