We loved everything about the Sandcastle. The location was perfect, right on the beach The room was clean and inviting, the staff courteous and friendly. There was much to do at the resort and everyone was anxious to assist with questions.
We would stay there again anytime.
I had a lovely three day mini-vaca with a buddy. The older building is OK but try to get a room in the newer "Tower" building for obvious reasons. The staff were friendly and helpful. The beachside bar is very nice. We enjoyed excellent breakfasts on site. The complimentary shuttle bus service was first rate. I would definitely book a return visit.
We stayed in the 2 bedroom condo, downstairs. It was clean, cozy and spacious! There were 7 of us and we were comfortable for all 3 days we stayed. The staff was very helpful and attentive. The only thing I can suggest is new towels. They are a bit ratty. Other than that I can highly recommend it, it's a home away from home. NOT A HOTEL. So if you want a boring run of the mill hotel don't book here. If you want cozy then you will love it! You can also use the pool at their sister property. Beach is a 2 minute walk away, snack bar, pool and everything u need there.

Nestled in a tropical garden, this resort is within 2 blocks of Lido Beach and of shopping and dining at St. Armand's …More
We really enjoyed our stay. Staff were friendly and helpful. We had a wonderful, short stay with our pet. We only wished that we could bring her to the beach! Will definitely be staying again! Thank you!
My wife and I had a wonderful stay at the Gulfside Motel. We were a three minute walk from a quiet stretch of beach, and just a 10 minute walk from St. Armands Circle. We stayed in a studio apartment, and it had everything we needed. The full size refrigerator was a huge plus. We even grilled steaks on the gas grill in the courtyard on one of our nights. It is an older motel with an "old Florida" charm. This is not a resort. If you want to stay in a resort, the hotel across the street would suit you better for around $250 a night. Parking was a breeze, the manager was extremely helpful and polite, and the area is completely safe for walking at night. I would recommend this hotel to anyone and I cannot wait for our next stay.
