911 Commercial Street

Sandcastle Resort and Club Annex

This appears to be a classic old Shore Drive motel, but I’ve had no luck so far identifying its builder, its date or its original name(s). The assessor dates it at 1940. That strikes me as early. Certainly, though, you’d expect an 11-room, L-shaped motel like this to have been built in the late ’40s or early ’50s. The parcel includes a fairly broad neck connecting it to the beach. By the summer of 2008, the building looked as decrepit as it appears in this photo. That fall, it was acquired by New England Vacation Management Services, the company controlled by Clifford Hagberg that now runs the adjacent Sandcastle time-share complex.
