Great Experience!


The staff were very friendly and the hotel was very safety conscience in the midst of the pandemic. Our room was clean and the view from the oceanfront side was breathtaking! Coconut's was a pleasant surprise and maintained an island vibe with the live music and fresh drinks. We will definitely be staying there again!

Our Trip to Ocean City, Maryland!

Very nice hotel. Huge pool with lifeguards. Great food. Live entertainment. Rooms are nice and clean. Beach is very close. Prices are reasonable and affordable. Staff is very friendly & helpful. Without any doubt, this hotel is Highly Recommended.

Endless Summer


We rented a beach apartment for the car cruise weekend. It was located about 100 yards from the ocean and well worth the cost. It came with it's own parking spot too which was helpful as Castle In The Sand was sold out. The hotel staff was pleasant and professional and the 2 bedroom apartment was large, clean and very well equipped. We stopped several times at the onsite beachfront club called Coconuts. Live band on Sunday was great. Seacrets is only 10 blocks away. Boardwalk is about a 10 minute drive.

Another great visit!


This is our 15th year at Castle in the Sand and we just love it! It is perfectly located in town and just steps to the beach. We can't say enough about this is clean, has nice amenities and a nice clean pool, they have great live music and an outdoor tiki bar. The folks at the desk and the cleaning staff are always very warm and welcoming. We keep coming back and also give gift cards to our family and friends to enjoy our favorite home away from home!
