We stayed in this property on november, We just would like to say " thanks a lot" to the owners for their kindness and for offering this service. Rooms are very cute and comfortable, located in front of the sea. For any person who's coming to Keys Island, don't hesitate to stay there. We live in France so we won't... More

I read mixed reviews about this hotel and decided to take my chances. It's not a super clean, 24-hour front desk, white sandy beach front hotel. It appears to be run by a couple and they're often not at the front desk although you can call them. We were very disappointed by the beach front when they got there but... More

The staff are super friendly and treat you like family. If you have questions about where to go for a meal, they can give you... More

This place is amazing. I've been visiting White Sands Inn for many years, and it just keeps getting better. The rooms are all clean and painted in the colors you'd expect in the Florida Keys, and the staff is wonderful. I've stayed in 4 different rooms as a paying guest, but have visited every room on the property and every... More

My wife and I having been coming to Whitesands for years, and this past weekend brought another couple along with us. We spent time fishing the flats around the Inn catching large snapper, barracudas and even a few sharks. There are Kayaks, paddle boards and a small row boat to use. Everyone there including the other guests were wonderful. We... More

I regret not taking the pics of the roaches in the room, and the lizard that came out once we flushed the toilet. The plates and cups in the kitchen cabinets have a strong odor of mold, or old if you will....i had to wash everything before I used it to remove the stench.. I was willing to not pay... More

This is our favorite place in the world. We stay here often and always look forward to the next time. The Inn is located in the middle of a beautiful tropical garden that opens up to a magnificent Oceanfront property. It is quiet and serene. The owners are wonderful people who we've grown very fond of. They are always welcoming... More

I love the White Sands Inn! We have stayed here every year since 2001. The first year we stayed for 3 nights-now we stay for 13 nights! This is one of the most relaxing places in the continental United States! I am not a frequent reviewer, but felt compelled to write this, especially since the reviewer who called the really... More
