Recognizing beforehand this was not going to be a full service all inclusive resort, we found our two night visit quite enjoyable. Extremely friendly and helpful staff, when they are found. Check yourself in, your key is in the room. You won't find cleaner rooms at any price. Some complain of the distance to restaurants, but you are also definitely... More

The property is quaint/adorable and very, very clean & the staff members are all very friendly. You can rent kayaks or take a... More

We thought we were coming to a quirky hotel but the rooms are not what you see in the photos. The Inn is very overpriced when comparing to other hotels we stayed at in the same area.The Inn is inconveniently located as you have to drive at least 2 miles to get something to eat.

Right on the ocean, White Sands Inn is a little slice of paradise! Not "fancy" it reminds me of the beach house I grew up in, bright colors, clean linens, and amazing grounds. Relax in the hammock and pet their sweet little striped tomcat, or go out on their pier to see barracudas, stingrays, and horse-shoe crabs. They also have... More

We stayed here for two nights and really liked it. The bathrooms are really small, and can use to be updated but they were clean. The entire resort was clean actually. It had a great vibe about it, very relaxing and friendly. I would recommend it to anyone.

We stayed here our first night in the keys as our week rental didn't start until the next day. We had originally booked Room 6 but were asked if we minded an upgrade to Room 7. The room was great - roomy bedroom, nice clean kitchen with table and a fabulous large deck overlooking the ocean. The deck was the... More
