We have stayed for years at this hotel which was formerly Country Inn and Suites. The new ownership of this hotel is disastrous. Our toilet was not working properly (running constantly) and even worse the toilet seat was soaking wet. The liquid on the seat (which I am hoping was cleaning solution) burned the backs of my legs. When I... More

This used to be a Country Inn and Suites property and was very nice. Since taken over by this company and changed it has gone downhill. Toilet didn't flush properly...had to get a plunger from front desk to use every time we used the bathroom. The pull out couch was nasty with stains, cigarette holes and extremely uncomfortable. Just not... More

Paid $78 all in for one night stay. Room was on ground floor, very clean, large with a separate bedroom, kitchen area and living space. Hotel was very quiet, check in was courteous and quick, breakfast was included and offered a lot. I have read some of the other views on this hotel and I can't say I experienced anything... More

A former Country Inn and Suites, this hotel is a simple place, but very cozy and comfortable. The courtesy of the staff and the breakfast, with different hot items every morning is the special about White Sands Inn. Excellent location, near the beach of Henderson Beach Park, restaurants, stores and Fresh Food Market. I'll

Our family did not originally plan on staying here, but our previous arrangements fell through so we were left to find somewhere to stay quickly. White Sands was very accommodating for our family of 5 and we were able to get a king suite with a pull out sofa. Each morning we had to check in to see if we... More

Let me start by saying I do not ever write bad reviews. This time I feel like I really need to! I booked this trip through Hotwire so I had no idea what hotel I was getting. When I arrived my room was booked for one night instead of two. That was hotwire's fault tho not the hotels. So I... More

I would never stay here again.. The smell was terrible..unless you like mold. Close the hotel until it's renovated.. Stop being greedy and actually make your customers happy. Also a huge mirror fell in our bathroom and broke into a million pieces and could of killed us!

Upon arriving I read several reviews and was concerned about the upkeep of the hotel. When we entered the first thing my kids saw was the cookies in the lobby and they couldn't wait to get some and every time we left lol. Once my family checked in I was very surprised. I didn't see anything broken my family stayed... More

I booked this hotel through Hotwire Hot Deals so I had no way of knowing what hotel it was. I was very upset that this was the hotel after I saw the reviews. Hotwire was very misleading in the description making customers think it was a leading hotel. The staff was very nice and this is the only nice thing... More

My family visited the week of July 4 and really enjoyed our visit. The staff was very friendly. Our room was clean and the pool was great! We enjoyed the big breakfast that was provided each morning also. We will defiantly recommend this hotel and will visit again.
