The room was dirty yet smelled heavily of bleach, like they were hiding something. It was supposed to be ocean view but all i could see was the tiki roof.

The entire property smelled of weed/ pot. The AC in the room was over the fridge at the entry door of the room. There wasn't ANY WAY the cool air (not cold) would reach the beds. If you opened the room door, you blocked the entrance to the bathroom that was less than clean. The kitchenette cabinets smelled disgusting. There were 4 plates and 1 glass available. The carpet was worn, stained and filthy. THERE WERE STAINS ON THE BED SHEETS. We left after being there for 2 hours. It took us that long to leave because we had to find another place to stay. WILL NOT EVER EVER GO THERE AGAIN. Won't even mention that the owner/manager's kids were running down the halls, nearly running us over. And the lack of concern when I said I was leaving was unreal. DO NOT EVER STAY THERE.

The staff was very friendly. The room was very outdated and could have been cleaner.

The shower has good water pressure and I could see the ocean. The room didn’t match the nice pics they have on their internet site. My room was nasty, the curtain looked to be from the 1960’s. It had something on it that look like feces and blood. The curtain was slanted, the wall above my heads board had brown streaks down the wall as if it was leaking or had leaked. The smoke alarm was covered and tapped with a grocery bag over it. The ceiling has spots where there were leaks. The entire place even walking up steps to second floor smelled of mildew and so did my room. I had planned to stay two nights but I couldn’t . When I arrived I wanted to leave immediately after seeing room, but me and my son had just drove five hours and was extremely tired, so we stayed that first night and checked out next morning. Castaway beach inn needs to be bull dozed down. I do not recommend this motel to anyone.

Budget friendly! You get what you pay for. It's your average beach motel. When we got there the front desk person couldn't find our reservation. After look for about 10 minutes she was able to find it. We got to our room which as just ok. The bathroom door didn't close all the way, the shower curtain didn't say closed. The screws we're coming out of the shower curtain rod. The shower head dripped constantly. You couldn't take a bath because the lever that holds the water in the tub was broken. The water pressure was an issue also. The kitchenette was stocked with the basics, which was nice. The mini fridge didn't get all that cold and always had water on the bottom. The beds were comfy and the pillows actually had fluff to them, not like your regular motel flat pillows. The mattress were clean, no bed bugs! The kids really enjoys the lazy River and the pool. Being right on the ocean was a HUGE plus. The wifi was horrible. We couldn't connect for anything. The room was very dated and could use a make over. I wouldn't say don't stay here just know that it is your average beach motel.

Old but clean and comfortable. Building needs work

Pros: It was clean, ocean front, and not terribly expensive.Pools were clean.The staff and other guests were friendly and courteous. Family owned and run.
Cons: The carpet in the room was old but appeared to be clean.Replacing it would significantly improve the room and perhaps eliminate the mild odor.
No other way to say it, this place is old. Think motor lodges of the 60s...? Having said that, it was clean and comfortable. It had a kitchenette with an apartment size refrigerator and stove, microwave, and full sized coffee maker. The kitchen cabinets were old but clean.There seemed to be enough dishes, pots and pans, and utensils to prepare simple meals. We had a small balcony (Large enough for 4 chairs) looking out over the dune to the ocean. The entrance to the beach is on the property,too. They have 2 pools which were both open and clean, There have been some updates such as there was a new one piece tub and shower surround and updated toilet and vanity. The mattresses and pillows seemed pretty new and were very comfortable. They have a pool side bar where everyone seemed to be hanging out the afternoon we arrived and having fun. (We had reservations for an event so we could not partake which was kind of sad) There was a slight musty smell to the room upon entering the first time but seemed to dissipate with the AC running. We opened the doors for a few minutes when we first arrived to let it air for about 5 minutes...I did the mandatory inspection for insects upon arrival and found none. I checked again when we returned to the room after dark with the same results. Overall it was a nice friendly little place (18 rooms in the building). The employees were courteous and helpful. We were only in town for the one night and it was last minute. I am glad we found this place

We were unable to even stay the night. The room was right outside of the pool and bar, the music was loud and drinkers were louder. Parking was a joke, even with a parking pass, spaces were hard to come by because bar people parked without passed and guests had no where to park. I intend to dispute the charges with my credit card company. It was the absolutely worse place we ever booked. Luckily we found a cleaner, quieter place and were able to get a good night's rest. They were so kind to us and everything was great after the disaster of the Castaway. Also, there were no towels, they only had one dryer working and did t know when towels would be available. Never again.
