I used this hotel for a trip I was taking with my older mother and it was lovely. It was the only reasonably priced hotel I could find and I wasn't sure how it would be, but I took a chance and I'm glad I did! The staff were VERY courteous and helpful to us, we had a mini fridge...

The hotel is an older motel with little in the way of amenities. That said our room was clean and neat with all we needed. No, this isn;t a place I would take a girl to impress her but for a couple on a motorcycle trip just trying out the island for the first time it was satisfactory. Breakfast was...

When we visited tybee, Baywatch was being filmed so loads of places were booked. From the outside, this would not have been my first choice, as the view is of the car park (very few hotels actually have a sea view) and it looks quite run down. But this is true of nearly all the hotels in the area. Inside...

We stayed here, after having a bad experience at another motel on the island. The front desk staff were very helpful, and the rooms were clean and comfortable. The rooms are freshly painted and overall in nice condition for being an older motel. If you are looking for luxury, don't come here, but if you are looking for an economical,...

We enjoyed our stay at the Sandcastle Inn. We wanted something affordable with a clean place to sleep for the night. It is no frills but that was to be expected for the price. The room was small but it was clean and updated. The staff was extremely helpful offering dining suggestions which were spot on and helping us with...

Had to ask for different room due to black mold in and around tub..took 3 rooms to end up with a room without visible mold. Owners kept blaming house keeping and maintenance for this. No discount offered or apology given. Continental breakfast was coffee orange juice and cereal or danish. Overall cleanliness fair.

We apologize for the inconvience to you regarding your room you originally checked into at the facility. We did get our maintenance man to look at the rooms and he found that the black on the bottom was the grout to the black and white tile that was there but the the corking in the tub did have a little...

“Ask for a room that had carpet replaced with vinyl/tile flooring. It helps with being a beach hotel.”

“No matter where you go,or where you stay. Always check out the room before you check in. Look at the baths,the beds the tv reception,heat and a/c. The overall cleanliness. Don't check in expecting something that is not there,and then blame the motel for not being what you want.”
