Crappy old out of date motel. Room was dirty, especially the carpet, No ice maker, no spa (as advertised), 1 single tiny bar of soap, no shampoo, no nightstand lamps. In fact, the only light in the room was the dim ceiling fan bulb. Ultra-crappy experience. Plus side: its right on the beach, you can park your car and not... More

I don't know why so many people are whining about this place. I've crashed in stranger, dirtier and weirder places in my life and this definitely does not fall into any of those categories. Just don't come here expecting a Hilton or Ritz for the price you're paying. The location cannot be beat, it's on a beach, you can rent... More

The worst hotel I have ever stayed in my life. This hotel is dirty, run down and has no amenities. Rusty windows that won't close and no screens, filthy baseboards and walls, dirty shower and toilet. Overpriced. Don't stay over there. If it was not 10 PM when we checked in we would never stayed over there.

We got what we paid for. The people were nice, the room was acceptable, thought the ice machine had a lock on it. That was not ok. Parking was a problem, but got home early enough it didn't matter. Right on the lake, beautiful view, great evening walk when the weather is nice.

This was the worse place I ever stayed in my life. Sun-n-Sand Lodge is totally run down, dirty and way overpriced -- not worth it at all. They desperately need Hotel Impossible to rescue them or this place will collapse by itself. Curtains, linens and towels are close to disintegrating, at this point am sure they are just molecules. I... More

Ok, where do I begin? No kleenex, (they were plumb out of tissues!) no towels (when I asked for them, I was told that they were being washed and I had to wait. Hours later when I asked again, they brought me thin, rough, small things that they called towels), moldy shower curtain, partially falling off the hooks, one bed... More

The hotel is dirty, they have bugs, the staff is rude and will sooner lie to you then tell you the truth. For gods sake don't give them a credit card as they... More

We asked for more towels and some shampoo. Got it, no problem. Slept good. The beach was perfect. Two big shade trees....love the shade. The water... More

Stayed with my wife and 2 small daughters on a Saturday layover. We were the last to arrive and since the parking was full, they gave us the check-in space up front. The room needed updating, but was clean. In the morning, my girls hit the beach while still chewing their breakfast. The beach is beautiful, with soft sand and... More
