Not the Ritz, but Good Enough.

We were able to check in at noon, which was nice, but the man at the front desk told us repeatedly to book directly through them which was irritating. We didn't spend too much time in the room as we were out sightseeing and enjoying the Cape, but it suited our needs as a place to sleep and shower.
We tried to use the microwave, but it kept turning off. One day we left the room after the cleaning person came by and had the "Do not Disturb" sign on the door. They never came back to restock the towels or make the beds or anything which was a little off-putting. The person at the front desk told us that he talked to the cleaning person and our room wasn't cleaned because of the sign on the door. I would have thought that they would have come back...
The hotel needs a serious renovation as the ceilings were bowing and cracked a bit, but it's clean enough. The stairs to the second floor are sturdy and seem in good condition. The hotel can be a bit tricky to get out of, but not hard to get to.
If you're looking to stay at a nice hotel on the Cape with a lot of things to do without much driving, Castle Dawn is not the hotel for you. But, if you're looking to drive around just use your hotel as a place to keep your stuff, sleep, and shower, it's totally fine.
