5.4 Passable
Pros:The location is nice. On the boardwalk. Ocean view with balcony. Within walking distance to everything, which was the reason for our stay at this location for the past several years.
Cons:Rooms are showing signs of disrepair. Lose ceiling tiles, mold in the bathroom, water damage on ceilings, bed linens no longer white. Breakfast this year was mediocre or not available at all and breakfast staff was rude. Breakfast was "served" until 10am (buffet), but there were no eggs, no milk, the potatoes and sausages were overcooked and cold at 8:45 am. This repeated on day two at 9:20. When asked for eggs and milk the staff member turned around and said nothing would be refilled since "Breakfast was almost over," and walked away. This finally resulted in a complaint at the front desk. Other than "I'll give them a call" no attempt was made to remedy the poor service, except a "sorry for the breakfast problem" at check out on day 4. I'm afraid this was our last stay at BW Sandcastle and we will no longer encourage friends to stay there.
6.5 Okay
Cons:Bathroom ceiling! Set up not same as photo
8.2 Great
Pros:the hotel was clean and the staff was friendly. the location was convenient and centralized. i liked my upgraded room.
Cons:i didn't like having to park across the street because of very low clearance in the parking garage. i only drive a normal truck and it wouldn't fit because of height.
8.0 Great
Pros:We loved the view from our room and balcony. We found that the staff were very friendly and helpful. Beds were comfortable. Great location. They had a good variety of foods for breakfast and did a very good job keeping everything filled up. We would come back here for another vacation.
Cons:The kids didn't like the hall-ways. Hot and very narrow. The parking garage is tight but nice to be on the same floor you are staying on. Someone put a scratch on my car..
6.2 Okay
Pros:Close to the water & right on the boardwalk, the rooms wee well kept and tidy.
Cons:The free breakfast buffet was horible, we ate it our second day, I should have known better I'm usually against buffets all together! It gave me severe food poisoning & I was bed ridden 2 of the 4 days we were there! Never again!! Steer clear!!! Yuck!!!! Also elevator was extremely slow sometimes wiring up to five minutes..
9.7 Excellent
Pros:The room was clean and the view was great. The staff was very friendly
Cons:No blow dryer, no tea, the tv wasn't working and my boyfriend got it to work somehow after fooling with it, no big deal though, the overall stay was good
7.7 Good
Pros:Waterfront balcony was a huge plus. Gym, free parking, and breakfast included. Decent price.
Cons:Could have been cleaner but, was not bad overall. The parking garage had steep ramps that may cause some vehicles to bottom out.
9.1 Excellent
Pros:Location is prime! Seconds to the beach and close to main strip attractions, food and entertainment. The staff were more than helpful and a pleasure to see. Very clean rooms with a great view. Pool, fitness area are very nice! Everything is setup to make your stay as easy as possable. Parking is included and the garage is attached for quick access to rooms. We really enjoyed our stay and will more than likely stay here again.
Cons:It could be up kept a little better maintenance wise to the outside, our door to the balcony was pretty beat up and alot of rust and missing paint. They were in the process of painting rooms tho, so maybe the rest is soon to come. Its an older hotell so some things like that are expected. The rooms could be a little bigger but for what we needed and the price it was great! The breakfast was pretty lame, but again, for the price it was fine. Nothing special to eat and pretty limited but what they did offer was really tasty and the staff again were very nice. Overall the pros definitely outweigh the negatives and i would stay here again and recomend to friends and family. Our family of 4 had an excellent stay!
8.5 Great
Cons:Restaurant!!! Horrible dirty food was cold and bad selection. Rather not have a complimentary breakfast. We left
10.0 Excellent
Pros:Everything about the hotel i liked. No issues. Flawless i would definitely recommend this hotel to anyone. Definitely got my money's worth.
