We decided to book at Sand Castle Motel because of the the apartment style suites. Upon entering the place, there was a funky moldy-like odour mixed with plug-in deodorizer smell. Most of all, we couldn't help seeing how dated the motel was. The hallways had minimal lighting with the bad odour lingering there.
We had the 1 Bedroom Deluxe suite which included a full kitchen (full refrigerator, 70s style stove, utensils, dishes, glassware, a few cookware) with a Queen bed. The bed was the bonus because it was very very comfortable. The bedroom included a noisy air conditioner box and a tiny CRT tv in the corner.
In the living room, there was a 70s style couch with a CRT tv in a huge cabinet. There was a non-working thermostat. Thus, the A/C or heating didn't travel to the living room.
The bathroom had the most annoying and very noisy fan we had ever heard! The water pressure was so-so with a very dated shower faucet.
Despite the old school facilities, the room was clean and the Wi-Fi worked well.
We didn't like the blatant note above the kitchen sink that if we didn't clean the dishes and put them away, we would be charged $12 extra on our credit card. If we didn't feel like cleaning the kitchen, management advised us to leave a $10 bill for the housekeeping.
Mainly, we stayed here as an overnight stopover. If you can get over the funky odour and dated decor, the place is ideal if you just want the basics plus a little homey comfort.
