“Great little beach motel”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 7 June 2011

My husband and I greatly enjoyed our stay at the Sand Castle, which is right on the beach - you're just a few steps away, which we really loved. Depsite how busy everything was, the noise wasn't bad - the walls can be a little thin at times, but we still slept well as most people were not noisy until late hours and weren't up early enough to bother us even though we were right by the pool. The staff was friendly and accomodating and we'd stay again!

We have been here 4 times in recent years, the staff are friendly & helpful, quite a bit of refurbishing has been done since our last visit, super pool & adjacent areas, easy access to one of the best beaches there is, plenty of local restaurants, looking forward to our next visit.

We stayed at the Sand Castle one summer. It was about the same as any other Mom & Pop motel, no better, no worse -- maybe a bit higher in price but just a bit so we didn't mind as the Mom & Pop motels are few and far between in Daytona these days. Fairly clean though not as good as some others. The room we stayed in was rather cramped but we were fine with that. The next year, we made reservations and paid a deposit of $92 (more that we had ever paid before as a deposit at other motels). We had a family emergency (due to illness) and had to cancel our reservation 4 days in advance. We asked if we could either get our deposit back or use it as a deposit on a later stay as we knew we would be able to go in September. The owner was rude and said that they might be unable to rent the room for the ten days we had reserved it so we could not have our deposit back and furthermore we could not use the deposit towards a stay a couple of months later. Our original trip was booked for July so I know there is no way they were unable to rent that room -- it's one of the most busy times in Daytona. I didn't mind not getting the deposit back but I did mind their refusal to apply it towards another stay. I simply could not understand this. It turned out fine for us as we have since found a couple other motels which are nicer (with private balconies that overlook the ocean) and are the same price range or less. I just wanted to let you know to beware about your deposit. You will not get it back if you need to cancel due to an emergency!

I have been going to the Sand Castle Motel for 3 years now. In fact, my family and I are making our 4th trip this Saturday. Every time we come down, we are welcomed by the wonderful staff. On our second visit to Sand Castle, a wonderful cleaning woman stopped us as we entered the room and gave us something we had forgotten a year ago! We have so much fun at Sand Castle. We all come down (as a family) with about 7 families total and basically rent out the entire bottom floor. Everything about Daytona Beach Shores is wonderful. I highly recommend that you come and take a visit. I have been to many beaches, (Tybee Island, Miami, etc.) and Daytona Beach Shores is the nicest and most friendliest beach I have ever been too. By the way, I am psyched for my vacation and stay and Sand Castle coming up at the end of this week! Hace a nice stay!
