The owner greeted us with a relaxed "welcome to the Keys" feel. He told us if we wanted to use any of the water toys, to put the money in the coconut on the office counter--gotta love the honor system. Our adorable room was small but everything we needed. It was also very clean. The bedding and art work was... More

We have been coming to the Keys for years now but have never stayed here before. We wanted to spend some extra time this year but our "regular" place was booked so we luckily found an opening here. We have spent a week here and it has been wonderful. As previous writers have noted it is a great spot for... More

My husband and I visit the Keys often and decided to make a last minute trip for my 50th birthday the last weekend in January. Our favorite place to stay wasn't available on such short notice and White Sands Inn had favorable reviews. We booked the last room available for a long weekend. We stayed in room #1, which is...

On the ocean in Marathon, Fl. Quaint, charming, private dock. Heated pool is great. Friendliest staff ever. Other guests were all happy to be here and it made for a fantastic stay. The bride didn't want t ok leave.

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

My best friend and I along with my two dogs were needing some down time and just relax and do nothing but enjoy a little peace and quiet. We found just that at The White Sands Inn! 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.
