This was a nice place- was getting updated but everything was very clean and they were very nice. Close to the beach and bars and restaurants- can't wait to see it after the update- very quaint!! We will most likely stay again!

We stayed for four nights in Room 10. Room 10 has been renovated and provides very well decorated, spacious and secluded accommodation at the front of the motel. Room 10 has no interference from room noise, there is no accommodation above and it was roomy, airy and quiet. There is also a separate wardrobe/luggage room and bathroom. We cannot speak...

Although the location is great this Castle is merely a run down inn in desperate need of rehab. Huge holes in the towels, mold in the bathroom, water stains everywhere. The location in super convenient near the Beach and Restaurants surrounding this lovely Beach town.

We enjoyed our stay very much. Management is very accommodating and their service is truly excellent. The rooms are bright and clean with comfortable beds, and there is a very attractive pool area! Just a short walk to the beach and and active town center, with good restaurants, grocery and drug stores close by.

Motel situated one block and a half from the beach. 10 minutes walk to the small town center with a few restaurants. Motel itself is small, but has a swimming pool next to the avenue. Rooms, and especially, batrooms are ancient and need modernizing. Owner and his wife often cannot be reached.

We stayed over New Years' holidays and loved it! The hotel is quite small (only 16 rooms), but in a perfect location if you want to enjoy the sun and sea. A beautiful sandy beach is just a few minutes' walk away from the hotel. Several bars/restaurants are nearby and there is a neighborhood (Publix) supermarket within walking distance, too....
