Fodor's Expert Review Castle in the Sand Hotel
3701 Atlantic Ave., Ocean City, Maryland, 21842-3338, United States
This compound of castles is a popular family destination for its sheer amount of kid-friendly amenities. "Castle Kid" activities include tales of pirates and ghosts of Assateague Island told by Captain J. one night a week in summer, and Lady Sunshine is on hand to pamper young princesses. All rooms are basic, with pastel walls and random, motel-esque furniture. But all are oceanfront, looking onto a wide swath of beach, with some overlooking the largest pool in Ocean City. Two off-site cottages a block away provide a cozy home-away-from-home atmosphere.
- ideal for families with younger children
- oceanfront location
- simple rooms
- "kid-friendly" focus not for everyone
