The hotel is centrally located and walking distance to so many things. It was surprisingly nice inside the room. Beautiful furniture, clean and bright. Plenty of parking as well.

We loved the cleanliness, the feel of the property, the staging and furnishing of the rooms, the convenience of being near beach and town. The only issue is that the desk closed at 6:00 pm

I can’t say enough good things about this place. Updated amenities, very spacious and clean. I’m a hard one to please and I love it here. We are a party of 5 and had plenty of room. 2 beds and a pullout sofa. FIVE STARS!!!!

For the price, the Castillo Inn was a pretty good deal. The room was clean, spacious and cute, and the property is very well located near the harbor. However, the few blankets on the bed were pretty thin and the pillows were completely flat. Overall, a fair choice on a budget.

I purchased the room through Travelocity on Tuesday, 10/22/19. After driving three hours to get there and arriving at 10 pm totally exhausted, I was told the room had been sold out from under me and they had no vacancies. No contact from Travelocity. Clerk said he tried to reach Travelocity several times prior to my arrival to advise them so they could let me know No response from Travelocity. So unacceptable. I had to scramble around at 10 pm to find another hotel. I will never use Travelocity again.

Flexible and friendly staff. Older building with tiny parking area, no pool or spa but close to the waterfront. Breakfast did not open until 7 AM so we were not able to partake and noone else in town for the same event was either.
