I have stayed at the Sands Hotel twice now. The rooms are clean, comfortable and maintained daily. The area is quiet. It is very convenient for Maroubra Beach which has a growing variety of eating places. The staff were helpful when I had an issue with a lightbulb and it was fixed by the time I returned to the room.

Rooms with good basic requirements for sleeping and breakfasting without the 'luxuries' of business centres and lounges. Well cleaned and provided for with straightforward simple bathroom that suited requirements well. Only downside was that wifi not working.

Location suited me well, room was adequate but the management don't have a single clue how to deal with business guests. Don't know how to create an account, pre-authorisation or any of the normal things hotels do. Restaurant wouldn't accept Amex but hotel would, one week able to charge to my room then stopped in second week. One of the... More

We came home to Australia for a Holiday and stayed at the Sands 2 different nights in our 10 day stay, loved the location and lovely clean rooms, staff were really helpful. I could not get onto the Wifi while there but the staff did everything they could to get me on. The food in the Bistro is fantastic.

Check in was easy, Staff were all very friendly & accommodating. Well equipped room that was clean & beds were comfortable. Basic amenities provided. We had a family room that was a good size. Slight musty/ smokey smell possibly from past guests. Would stay here again! Cheap & cheerful....

We found The Sands to be a very friendly place with clean, comfortable rooms at a reasonable price for three adults! We stayed for 7 days. The location was excellent... 100 paces to the bus stop (Sydney has an excellent bus system) and a 10 minute walk to beautiful Maroubra Beach. The beds were very comfortable and the room was...

I could not fault the service. One of our guests failed to book in and the hotel staff got up at 12am to accommodate them. The rooms are very clean and well maintained. The location is great with a short stroll to the beach. The Bistro in the hotel has reasonable prices and good food. The staff were friendly and... More

Had I realised that the hotel was above a busy social hotel which is more like a club I would have avoided booking. I was still awake at 11 pm as the final customers left the premises. Outside this the room was basic but great family sized. Clean Very poor internet probably the slowest I have encounterd in a hotel.

I've stayed here a few times now. If you are after a simple and convenient stay I highly recommend. The rooms are always clean and well looked after; there's a bistro, pub and bottle shop downstairs; the beach is a 10 minute walk and there are convenience shops next door.
