Location - front side, at corner of 14th & Atlantic Ave. Back side, right at the Fishing Pier. There is a restaurant attached, Ocean 14 with a great bartender and owner. One of the best breakfasts I have ever had, lots of variety and it was hot and tasty! Ample parking in the garage. Hotel was clean and even with our room being across from the elevator, very quiet.

The one thing I was disappointed with is the wifi NEVER worked during the entire stay. We reported it to the front desk staff at least 3 times. AND the staff even provided me with the tech number and had me call. No success. Very disappointing.

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.

The front desk, the breakfast helpers and the night equipment manager(?) were fabulous.
Other Comments
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
