“Great Location!”
Reviewed 8 October 2013

Stayed at this resort two years in a row. Located across the street from the Marginal Way, walking distance to Perkins Cove. Quaint downtown shoppes within walking distance. Loved that fact that our bedroom was separate from the living room. Bed was not as comfortable as we like but it was satisfactory. Nice that we had a refrigerator and microwave in the room. Staff was very helpful and room was clean. Best deal at this resort is after Columbus Day. If I had to list one complaint, it would be that the fan in the bathroom sounding like a jet engine, so we just chose not to use it.

Room Tip: Upper room with a deck has the best view.

Stayed here 1 night in October. Very convenient location, room was clean, front desk very polite.
The room did smell alittle funky, but we just opened the windows to air it out. Did not use the pool. We stayed in a studio. Don't know what the rest of the rooms were like, but would definitely stay here again.

Room Tip: We stayed in a studio. It was very clean.

Bottom line: if we come after Labor Day again, we will stay here again. We've been coming to Ogunquit since 2004 and being near the Main Street, Beach Street, Shore Road intersection is where you want to be. (See other reviews for that!) Having said that, you will pay the price for staying anywhere within a half mile radius and the innkeepers seem to take advantage of this and keep pace with one another. This inn may be a bit lower in price because they do not have a workout room and you will not be able to use another facility. Also, there is no tennis court, no free breakfast, no game room, no real lobby. But if location is what you want, you got it: Marginal Way is right there, a quick walk to the center of town and you can walk to Perkins Cove or take the trolley. I jogged along Marginal Way but I really missed that treadmill when it rained.

But they do have: an indoor pool (the water may be a bit warmer in high summer), a sun deck area with chairs, a hot tub outside and a jacuzzi with the indoor pool and of course, free parking. The staff was very nice and friendly. Very helpful (they even agreed a treadmill would be nice).

I agree that the furnishings may not match in the rooms. But it was fully furnished: sofa, two chairs, dresser downstairs and up, floor lamp and table lamps. One of the bulbs was out but we did not ask for a replacement. I'm sure they would have brought one. Our room was clean and spacious. We had their loft which had two queen beds upstairs and a pull-out couch downstairs. We traveled with three tweens and we had plenty of room. However, it is a true loft: you can look right downstairs from the top, meaning it is one big open space. The kids loved it, moms and dads won't have a true separate room. We also came to a truce with two TV's going at the same time.

The kitchenette was a good size, electric stove, microwave, full size fridge, utensils, coffee maker, even a toaster. Although we did not make a meal there, the table could sit 6 if you needed to. I have stayed in rooms this size that had two bathrooms, so with only one bathroom, it was a bit hectic but we pulled it off.

For those who have read my reviews, please know that we really enjoy our destinations, so our requirements for lodging may not be what others require. We are out the majority of the day and often get back late at night. A pool is necessary when I travel with my nieces and nephews (our own child is grown and is not often with us), otherwise, it's not important. Likewise, we normally eat out, but like having a microwave and refrigerator. I would prefer at least a treadmill, but I'll jog in the street if I have too. Free breakfast is not important. My thing is the room has to be clean, particularly the bathroom, carpet (which I really don't like) and the bed. Luxury is not always a requirement. So my standards are not as high as others. Bear that in mind when you read my reviews.

We stayed in a side loft at the Seacastles Labor Day weekend. We were very pleased with our accommodations. The room was very clean and comfortable! The staff was very friendly and helpful. The location was perfect. We will be back soon!

We have been coming to Ogunquit for many years and have stayed at Seacastles a few times before and also at many other locations in Ogunquit. We chose Seacastles this year because they seemed to have the best price for a suite with separate a bedroom.
-As soon as we entered the room we realised the small savings was not worth it!! The room smelled horrible - like an old refrigerator that had been left unplugged.
-The furniture and carpets were so outdated looking that the idea of sitting down and relaxing in our living area was just not an option - luckiy the weather was great so we could lounge outside.
-The indoor pool is the most disgusting mold den I've ever seen - you couldn't find a worse pool in the dingiest 49.00 / night motel on the side of the highway.
-I spent my entire vacation in agony with back pains because the bed and pillows were so awful and uncomfortable that I couldn't sleep and my lower back was in constant spasms.
-The carpet to the stairs was pulling up at the front door entry - the carpet tack strip was exposed and I nearly tore my foot open on it twice.
-The AC units which must have been installed in 1984, have two speeds off and super ice blast - and they blow right on the bed. So we elected to not have AC instead of freezing to death. And they also sounded like a tractor trailer the humming noise they made was so loud.
-The bathrooms were just gross.

We stayed 3 nights after having spent a night at the Anchorage across the street. It was like night and day - we will never go back to Seacastles. Its a great location in our favorite spot in Ogunquit, but it is time for a serious overhaul and renovation to bring it up to par with its location and price.

We were booked at another location down the street for 2 nights. The smell on our suite at the other location was toxic therefore we could not stay the 2 nights as originally planned. We called Seacastles and they had a suite available. We stayed last night and we very pleased with the cleanliness of the room and the friendliness of the staff . Our room overlooked Shore road and we felt like we were part of the action. The room was fine. The only complaint was the pull out sofa could have had a better mattress but we loved the location and the cleanliness. Thank you so much..

My husband and I love to visit Oqunquit for long weekends during the off season. Sandcastles is our go to place every time. I think we have stayed there at least 13 or more times in as many years. It is not a fancy place, but it is clean and comfy, with friendly staff, kitchenettes, and a pool. It is the location that keeps us coming back. It is right off the Marginal Way and about a ten minute walk to the beach. We like that we can park the car and walk everywhere or take the trolley. The prices are reasonable as well.
