Why use CITSIOC as an abbreviation?
During our review, you might sometimes see us refer to Castle in the Sand in Ocean City (32 characters long, including blanks) as CITSIOC (7 characters long) for the following 3 reasons:
- We created the acronym by taking the first letter of every word (which was very groundbreaking, we know)
- We’re lazy and CITSIOC is simpler and easier for reviewing purposes
- We save 25 characters every time we do this
So, just a heads up that we’ll be using this abbreviation sometimes, so you’re not left scratching your head and wondering what the heck we’re talking about whenever we refer to CITSIOC throughout the remainder of this review.
Also, we’ll sometimes use CITSIOC2818 which is a combination of the abbreviation with the Travel Help Guru post id, which we sometimes use for THG tracking purposes to further differentiate abbreviations from one another.

This is another great question to ask The Booker for CITSIOC2818, because getting friends and family discounts gets you instant benefits that is good for you but also them (since it encourages you to get more people to stay there).

This one is more of a longshot, but it doesn’t hurt to ask the Booker if they ever have any black friday or cyber monday specials for CITSIOC2818 (assuming you can wait that long).

Is Castle in the Sand in a good location in Ocean City for you?
Where you want to be located in Ocean City is one of the most important questions for you to answer.
Of course, it all depends on why you’ll be in Ocean City in the first place, and whether the location of CITSIOC will be helpful to you or not.
For example, are you traveling to Ocean City for business or pleasure? Visiting friends or family there? Simply want to soak up the sights and attractions?
It’s very simple: decide what you want to actually accomplish (what you want to see or do) in Ocean City. And then decide whether Castle in the Sand’s location is a benefit for that or not.
Does Castle in the Sand have a pool?
An indoor pool or outdoor pool (or even super swanky rooftop pool) might or might not be important to you, depending on how you’re planning to spend your time in Ocean City and who you’re traveling with.
For example, if you’re traveling by yourself on business, it might not be important at all, but if you’re traveling to Ocean City with friends, family, or children, and you think you’d enjoy relaxing by the pool at CITSIOC, it might be an important consideration whether there is an indoor or outdoor swimming pool, whether it’s heated or not and has a pool bar or not, and so on.
If a pool is very important for your stay, THG recommends that you do a specific search for the best deals on Ocean City hotels with pools.
Does Castle in the Sand have a steam bath, sauna, hot tub, spa, or spa tub?
While you’re exploring the pool options at CITSIOC2818, you might as well check whether there’s a steam bath, sauna, hot tub, full service spa, or spa tub that you might be able to enjoy to make your stay even more relaxing.
Does Castle in the Sand offer free wi-fi?
This is a huge consideration when considering whether to stay at CITSIOC, since people rely on wi fi (wireless internet access) for everything from business work to entertainment.

Does the check-in time and check-out time at Castle in the Sand work for you?
Check-in times and check-out times can vary a lot depending on the accomodation, so be sure to verify whether the check in time and check out time at CITSIOC works with your schedule, as well as whether you can do a mobile check in to make the process even easier.

Does Castle in the Sand have enough beds for you?
If you’re staying at CITSIOC with multiple people, this answer is important, because a single twin bed, double bed, queen bed, or king bed is fine if you’re on your own, but if there are others you’d rather not share a bed with, it’s worth checking whether you’ll have a couple double beds or queen sized beds for the sleeping arrangements, or perhaps even a double sofa that you can pull out and make into an extra bed.
Does Castle in the Sand have good food options?
