My wife's family have been coming to Treasure Island since she was a little girl and always stay at The Sands. I've now visited several times myself, the last couple of times with our own young daughter. Simply put, this place just has a great vibe about it that I love. Location is incredible, layout and look of the hotel... More

Stayed 2 nights for New Years eve. We had room 204. We thought room had kitchenette but only had microwave and toaster. Asked if there was another room available because we planned on making our new years day black eye peas and collard greens. There was another room available but couldn't trade the view for a stove. Luckily our friends... More

Although while we were there it was not busy there is limited parking. The staff was friendly and the layout of the motel was nice. The best part of the motel is it's location. We stayed for two nights in one of the balcony ocean view rooms. Simply put the room was in bad need of an update! The balcony... More

My 'Tribe' has been to the Sands a few dozen times over the past 30 years or so. It is a wonderful reminder of a time when the pace of life was a little slower...a little more personal...a little less pretentious and filled with 'fluff'. The Sands is as much 'luxury' as I personally can handle. All my kids (5... More

All though much cheaper rates than most the saying you pay for what you get stands here. I loved the layout of the motel, management staff, free ice, but I just could not get over the dirty room, pool, bathroom, fridge. Our air conditioner could not keep up with the daily temperatures but at night no to bad. The shower... More

Remember those trips in the old woody your family would take to the cabins on a lake in michigan? Well this is the Florida version. Reasonable prices, clean and very family oriented. Kitchenette. We have been having family reunions here for 10 years. Short trip to beach or use the pool. Bring the grill if you can and stock the... More

This apartment/hotel was built in 1947. It still looks like 1947, and there was a definite moldy smell. Those things aside, it had fresh paint, and a certain charm. It reminded me of my Aunt's house when I was a kid. People were super friendly, and the guests used the outdoor spaces, instead of being holed up inside. We had... More

My family stayed at The Sands for 4 days in room 124. I loved the vintage appeal of the place. It was right on the beach, and my kids loved being able to head to the beach anytime we felt like it. The beach is beautiful and right there! If is certainly a perfect location. The rates are reasonable and... More

You know what they say....location, location, location. And this place is the best. It's right on the beach and has a beautiful view. The hotel itself is OK. There were only a few things that were disappointing but there were plenty that was good. First the good: We stayed in room 114. It's the last room closest to the beach... More
