When you book here, you are mostly paying for location, which is great. The food was ok and staff very friendly; but the rooms a little dated and frankly they were not all that clean. The coffee in the room was not good, and they charge you for the coffee downstairs. Come on really? Put out an urn of fresh,...

Castle in the Sand! No frills, but convenient to drinks, food, and beach! Everyone is so nice! It's clean and has basic amenities. We come here twice a year and love it! Castle in the Sand is the place to be!

The place definitely need updating. The rooms are old and the bathrooms need updates, the carpet is also old. you have a great view of the ocean. I paid almost $800 and I was very disappointed. I could have gone to the Hilton or someplace better. My mistake, I will never book there again.

We stayed here in 2015 in the north tower second floor. It was very noisy because we were above Cocoanuts outdoor bar. This year we stayed in the north tower again but on the third floor away from the bar. It made a tremendous difference. We had a suite with a balcony that was just about perfect. The service staff...

We were only here for one night for a wedding, living only an hour and a half away from Ocean City means I don't often stay overnight. Great front desk staff, nice clean room, beds were comfortable and clean. Bathroom was small but clean and there were plenty of towels! We were on the 5th floor of the North building...
