The location was great walking distance to restaurants, beach, bars, and shops. Room was clean staff was friendly. Breakfast was lacking coffee, cereal, and pastries. Would stay there again. Small pool but so close to the beach not a real issue.

We appreciate you taking time to review our property. Being so close to the beach is definitely an advantage for vacationers on Tybee. We are glad you found it convenient as well. We do offer coffee, juice, cereal, fruit, yogurt and pastries with our continental breakfast. Depending on the season we have a few other options as well. We will...

We spend the weekend at Sandcastle. We checked in on Friday, May 12 and checked out on May 14th, 2017. The staff was very professional and friendly. I printed out my booking confirmation with the total price to make sure the price matched what I was being charged. I have read many reviews, some are great but some seem to...

My wife and I stayed two nights from May 8th-10th and had a wonderful time. The room was immaculately clean, the bed was great, but the best part was the staff. Melinda and Cale made us feel right at home the moment we arrived. We were picking up a car from family, and they allowed us to have an extra...

We called ahead to let the front desk know we'd be late. When we arrived our ground floor room was not ready, so we were given a room on the second floor. Upon entering, we noticed coffee stains on the vanity and hair in the tub. There were also no towels in the room. Blair, from the front desk, came...

Very nice Motel close to the beach. Only 4 minutes walk. Staff is friendly. We arrived very early and got a parking tag. We spend several hours at the beautiful beach. For sure this hotel isn't a Ritz-Carlton but everybody can decide how much money they want to spend. For sure we will come back.

The location was great! Not far from the beach and shops. I read reviews before going and noticed that some said the rooms were cleaned daily. I stayed two nights and my room was not cleaned following the first night. My trash was full and towels needed to be replaced. Called the front desk and was told room service would...

This is not the Ritz but it is a good hotel that is located within a 5 minute walk to the beach and pier. The rooms were clean, the bed was comfortable and the staff was terrific. It is one of the older hotels in Tybee but has undergone major upgrades. It is a comfortable place to stay and it's...

I have to go along with majority of the other reviewers about this place, very outdated, like stepping back to the 1970s. The room had a musty smell, so bad went straight out and bought some Freebreeze, maybe this is caused by the close proximity to the beach, I don't know. Room amenties were up to scratch, Microwave, fridge, TV,...
