Housekeeping crew very rude. Walking in on us even with a do not disturb sign. Attitude.. slammed the door no apologies. Saw one housekeeper with an unlit cig in her mouth! Elevator was out of service the whole time. Breakfast aweful! Will not return

The great room with the beautiful view.
Other Comments
The parking deck was very convenient for guests. All of the staff were friendly and very helpful. We particularly liked the great breakfast and the attendants taking care of the breakfast room. The food trays were kept replenished and full. Requests were handled with a smile. My husband (85) had a slight problem locating the snack machine and a desk attendant, Imani, went out of her way to help him. We really appreciated the extra service. The bed was very comfortable and the furnishings were updated. Appreciated the safe in our room. All in all, it was an very enjoyable experience and we hope to return to the Sandcastle after the summer crowds have gone home.

Bed was broken upon arrival and then we discovered the frig didn't work. then we weren't quite ready to leave when housekeeping arrived but told them, about 10 minutes. When we got back hours later room hasn't been touched, called down and they said they would send someone, we left again, came back hours later, room still not touched. Stopped at the front desk on our way out and mentioned it again. This time they finally got it done but the housekeeper left her hair pins on the bed. Management really needs to address people talking loudly, screaming and playing music after midnight. I expected better
