Ocean Sands was really nice. Our room faced the ocean and the hotel's private beach, which was great; and don't worry if the ocean facing rooms are booked - All of the 2nd floor rooms on the back facing side of the building look out into the intracostal marsh/waterway, which is equally beautiful (Awesome sunsets). The only "down side" to... More

My husband, son, & I were able to get away for a weekend trip to the beach. The Inn is older but well kept, across the street from the beach but with its own access, and a staff that was friendly & accommodating the entire stay. It's far enough out that we felt like we were truly "away" for the... More

The staff was very friendly and provided us great recommendations a for food and activities. The place was literally right on the beach and the beach was very... More

I actually stayed in this hotel in March 2014, and I meant to immediately come home and make a review, but I honestly forgot to do it. Since I was on here to review my recent stay at another hotel, I thought I should take the time to give this hotel its due because it was a wonderful stay. We... More

We stayed for two nights here and had a great time. The room was comfortable and the beach was relaxing, not crowded or loud. Stacey at the front desk was very friendly and helpful. She recommended a great restaurant, Aunt Kate's, which was awesome: way better than Cap's, Lisa (which you would know if you ate there)! We will be... More

Lisa and Hardy went above and beyond to make our stay comfortable. We actually stayed an extra day we were so pleased. They have a lot of things an out of towner would need to stay on the beach toys for kids, boogie boards, chairs and umbrellas. I cannot say enough about the kindness.
