I don't even know where to begin other than you get what you pay for! Spend the extra money and stay somewhere decent!!! My family always stayed at the Breakers but decided to give the Sandcastle a try. Huge mistake. Rude staff. Roaches. Unclean. Horrible experience. Believe me, never again!!!!!

The room was a LOT smaller than expected. The bathroom had ZERO counterspace, and the kitchen had about 4 inches of it. There was gum on the headboard, the air broke and my husband had to fix it, no room to walk around, and the tv was ancient.

I have stayed at this hotel for the past 10+ years and already have May 2017 booked. We always get an oceanfront room. It is slightly outdated, but I'm not looking for looks. I'm looking for a clean place to sleep and shower and that's all I need. They have never let me down. I don't need fancy, just clean....

I read the reviews, and I was very uneasy about staying here, but I like to be a risk taker!!!! My room was oceanfront with a microwave and refrig. The shower and water pressure was wonderful!! Location is perfect for walking to the attractions and right on beach. I came prepared with Clorox spray,air freshener and bug spray!! Didn't need...

I have stayed at this motel many times in the past but this visit was less than satisfying. This motel is dated which doesn't bother me as long as it is clean but not so much this time. The top of the fridge was dirty, the stove was dirty, the toaster was broken, and some evidence of roach droppings was...

The room was oceanfront and had a balcony. We had a baby with us and my two daughters. It was very enjoyable except it was the week before hurricane matthew arrived and we had to evacuate. Being with my children was special. The ladies that cleaned the rooms were very accommodating and helpful.

We stayed for a second time at this hotel. It is a remarkable value for what you get. Not too many hotels can beat the Oceanfront view with a large balcony. Not a sideways or angled view. A straight on view where you are right on the beach. For $350 US a week you can't beat it. Our room came...

We had to cancel due to Matthew hurricane. It was not the best of time to go during a hurricane. Usually during the Columbus Day is when lots of vendors are out promoting their stuff. We plan to go next year same time we have always been on the 2nd weekend of October. everybody was flooding

Run down, poorly maintained and staff doesn't seem to care. It said it had free wifi, but the wifi didn't reach our room on the 8th floor.

The only thing nice was the pools and beach. The hotel was a dump. I've stayed in plenty of hotels in that areas and I even stayed in motels that was much nicer. The picture on line is false. The room was old and trashed. The balcony was small, my kids was scared they were going to fall off. The...
