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.

Some of the staff was friendly. My family has been staying here for the past 3 years was there in July 2014 and the only problem I had was it was hard to get towels. It was like it was a shortage. I realize that people take hotel towels but they should have had more. Don't know if we will... More

We booked this through hotwire because it said it was 3 stars, but we disagreed and got a refund with them. I'm sure it was nice a few decades ago but they are in need of new furniture, carpets, and mold resistant walls (see pictures). The smell was musty and I agree with the other review about needing to throw... More

I booked this under Country Inn and Suites and then later it was sold to White Sands Inn and Suites. Staff were wonderful and breakfast buffet was delicious. HOWEVER, the rooms are a mess. Our suite had an old wobbly table and 2 wobbly chairs. Carpet needs replacing. We had rented the suite for myself, my daughter and my 5... More
