The Sandcastle is located on the main drag in Rehoboth close to everything in town. Unfortunately, the place has not been updated in any way in a good 40 years. The lobby is minimal, soda and ice machines are in the basement parking garage. One great perk- free covered parking for guests.
The rooms are minimalist. Ours had a microfridge under the kitchen type sink in the bedroom (made out of furring strips and studs with a coat of paint). The carpets are badly worn and stained throughout the hallways and in the guest rooms. Our bath vanity was cracked and repaired with caulk- I can't imagine there is any way to find a replacement for a circa 1970 vanity. Unfortunately the door didn't fully close to the bathroom either. There was a small patio with a plastic chair- no screen door though. The beds were not the nicest, nor were the linens.
There is an indoor pool, but we did not use it. It was raining while we were there, and there were buckets in the hall by the pool catching the water leaking through the roof. While the covered parking was great, a few of the floor drains from the upper deck parking lot had broken or missing drain pipes in the lower deck casing a few waterfalls.
The service was friendly, though basic.
Overall not a great place, but the location is fantastic. Set expectations appropriately.
