It has been a year since my last visit and I was not disappointed! Kind helpful staff, excellent view, close proximity to the pier, shopping and dining. Lots of variety to choose for breakfast. I have visited twice with friends and family.....time to treat my husband and I!

Great access to the beach. Within walking distance of good eats & drinks - you can pop next door to the Sea Venture for a view, a good cocktail and a nosh. Exterior entrances for half the rooms. The rooms have large balconies, though those aren't private from adjoining rooms. Ground floor rooms 150-154 would be great for cyclists. Personable...

Enjoyed my weekend at Sandcastle Inn! It's right on the beach, just steps from the waves. We parked our car Friday and didn't have to drive for the rest of the weekend, we walked to restaurants, enjoyed the beautiful pier, and walked along the beach. The rooms are large with nice decor, complimentary breakfast buffet with hot and cold items.

In town for just one night and stayed and this quaint little hotel. I had an ocean view room and was able watch the whales breach. Great location along beach and very close to pier. Nice little trail to run down the coast. Also walking distance to many shops, bars and restaurants. Daily newspaper at door a nice added touch....

Fantastic location, friendly staff and clean rooms, disappointed there wasn't a bar. There wasn't any air conditioning in our room, it was extremely hot. We had trouble sleeping because of the heat. There was a good choice for breakfast.

Great place to stay, four us unfortunately only one night. Plan coming back soon. Clean place, simple breakfast. Could be a nice place for a couple nights in summer with the kids right at the beach. Sea breeze....

My husband and I both travel for work and stay at chain hotels. We decided to stop at the Sandcastle Inn on a vacation and it was wonderful! It is right on the beach, and there is a protected deck to have your morning coffee. The room was spacious and the people were friendly. We will be back!

We loved the room!! The view was awesome!! Breakfast could be added to, but it was good. Everything was pretty much within walking distance. The staff was exceptionally nice and helpful!! The Jacuzzi was clean but could have more power. We didn't make it up to the 3rd floor overlook....but I'm sure it was nice. Water pressure in the bathroom...

The hotel is located exactly on the beach. Rooms are clean and comfortable . Especially terrace with it's jacuzzi very much enjoyable even during fall. It is a bit overpriced but worths if you want to stay on the beach for couple of days.
