Also found a dead rat near the poolside , was afraid of taking the vermin home in luggage. nearest the beach. I complained directly to the front desk , they said, " OK ". The thing stayed there til'... More

I’ve stayed in Golden Sands on October 2004 for 4 nights. I have to say not bad at all. The hotel its self is little bit out dated but the stuff was the whole time very nice, polite and professional. I made my reservation on-line on their website. They didn’t have it. Good that I had print out confirmations. Clerk... More

If anyone wants to stay at the Golden Sands Hotel, I recommend that you don't. The staff was rude. I was actually yelled at by housekeeping for taking too long to leave my room for service. When I complained to the front desk, I was insulted by the front desk attendant. The rooms were dirty and it was a horrible... More

I didn't mind that we had to pay to park, but the ramp up or down was very narrow and in my opinion dangerous. The rooms were not what we expected. We brought our Lysol and gave the room and bathroom a thorough cleaning to avoid getting sick. The walls were paper thin and you could hear all activity going... More

The Con's- The bar is small and they don't offer any draft beer. They Have a Happy Hour for $.99 draft beers.... More

This hotel was not worth saving money! If I knew it was going to be so horrible, I would have been more than willing to spend a couple hundred dollars more! The walls were so thin I never got any sleep. Every night the people in the surrounding rooms were screaming and basically having parties in the hall. The management... More

Avoid this place at all costs. Older hotel with paper thin walls. Didn't sleep a wink. Shower was a joke. Management did nothing when I complained about the noise. Checked out immediately the next day. Spent twice the orignal amount ($80) at the next hotel (Marriot Courtyard) and it was worth every penny. Do not stay at the Golden Sands!!!

My hostest, violeta was very friendly and helpful. I was surprised at the size of the room, having paid twice as much the night before with only a quarter of the space. There are washers, dryers, sink, stove, a beautiful garden, cable t.v. air conditioning, and even a sitting room. all this just a block away from the Atlantic. It's... More

The room was so dirty that cannot be described. Terrible noise from strret. They refused to honor my printed reservation (made a month in advance). The hotel is located in a bad area. The receptionist (Caesar)? was very rude and aggrevating. Moved out first thing in the morning into a nice hotel (Hampton) that cost only 20% more.
