It's an older building, and you won't find amenities like coffee makers in the rooms. So that is something I would suggest they do. However, you can't beat the location for shopping and dining. The staff are also very nice.

We liked the convenience of the proximity to dining and shopping. The staff was very friendly and helpful! The property is older and the rooms could use some paint and repairs to the caulking in bathroom and new sliding doors to balconies. The indoor pool needed to be vacuumed.

We stayed on a Monday night in late September, and the price was awesome. So close to everything...stores, bars, restaurants, and the BEACH! Room was ready early. Very clean. Indoor pool is nice. Super fast check in. We will definitely be back!!

the free parking available to guests even after checkout time was crucial. the rooms were very cute and clean, but just a caveat, the walls are very thin. the staff was friendly and accomodating for the most part, however check-in check-out times were not super clear or flexible (though we stayed during a bizarre time as the off-season was beginning, so that inevitably added to the confusion). overall i'd for sure recommend sandcastle motel and plan on staying here again next time i'm in rehoboth. its a sweet little spot that's v affordable and super close to the ocean, shops, and boardwalk

Love this place
I love the Sandcastle. It is in the heart of rehoboth. Steps from great restaurants, shopping, and 2 blocks from the beach. Clean well kept basic hotel rooms with wonderful balconies. The indoor heated 84 degree pool and sundeck overlooking the avenue are a wonderful feature of this hotel. Bonus comes with a free parking spot which is very rare in rehoboth indeed. I have been coming here since 1989, and i will always come back.

The beds are really hard. We ended up buying inflatable mattresses and putting those on top of the beds after our first night of rough sleep. Otherwise we liked everything else about the place and would go back but would bring our air mattresses with us.
