Had 6 rooms for family and friends.... Manager is nearing retirement and can careless about motel and guest. She is there for a paycheck ONLY.... I can not believe the owners and board members of the units have not let her go years ago!

We booked a room for 4 and when checking in they give us a room for 2, telling us if we didn't like it that we can go else where. This has to be the worse Hotel I have ever stayed at. I will never stay at this hotel again - I do not recommend it. The staff is completely... More

My family has been staying at Sandalwood for more than 10 years, this year we agreed not to go back. The manager is so rude she is driving customers away. The location is great. Directly on the gulf. The rooms have been updated over the years, but the rudeness takes the cake......

Stay Far away from this hotel! We got charged $10+tax per person for our friends visiting us for the day and they weren't even allowed to park at the hotel. The room was dirty and run down! The staff is unfriendly and lazy. Housekeeping refused to make our beds and only gave us 2 towels. If you have ever seen... More

We stayed at this hotel on 3/31/15 and checked out on the first. We were not aware that we were not allowed to swim in the pool after check out. We asked PEGGY the manager as she walked by the pool if they provided a microwave for the guests. She asked what our room number was and then told us... More

The rooms were as expected, we stayed in 353. The entire place was a little wore out but it was pretty clean and we only needed a place to keep our food, shower, and sleep. We weren't there to admire the room. Once I learned we had to stay in our rooms after 9 ( talking echoes over the pool... More

Not for the snobby, but clean and comfortable and close to everything. it's not the Ritz but when you come to Florida you come for the beach I hope. If you came for premium amenities you should have stayed in North Dakota.

This hotel is a gem for the price. If you want a high-end hotel then you will hate it here. It is laid back and comfortable but definitely no "glitz." Most of the rooms have been remodeled. The location to the beach is fantastic and it is right next door to the Doubletree Resort so you can go sit at... More

I grew up at this resort. My family would go for spring break year after year and we never had a bad experience. Location is great and beach is amazing! As long as Sandalwood is there, we will continue to come to Redington Beach!
