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

I have stayed at the Sands several times in the past and was quite happy with the place. Reasonable prices, relatively clean and nice people who work there. In particular is Harry who works the front desk and is always ready to help. Oh yes, Its a BEAUTIFUL spot on the Beach. Joyce Librant

We were in room 115 right at the pool. Perfect spot. If you have kids and plan to spend time at the pool make sure to get a poolside room. The room itself was OK. The kitchen had plates, bowls, toaster, microwave, stove a a full size fridge (they will supply you with dish clothes and towels if you request... More

First of all, this is a fantastic location. It's "on" the beach (but don't forget that the stretch of beach to the water is about half a football field). The pool area is really nice. The rooms themselves are quite dated. Kind of funny and charming actually. The corner rooms (201 and 207) are HUGE. They have 2 double beds,... More

My family has been coming to the Sands for the last 50 years. It is clean, basic and right on the beach. The pool is great and well maintained. This is not a romantic honeymoon hotel. We all love it and would hate to see it go as it is the last of the generation of true beach motels.

rooms are very outdated although clean.Appliances need replacing.The microwave had the wrong turntable plate installed so it wont not rotate. The toaster did not work at all and the coffee pot worked but took almost an hour to brew one pot. The rooms were clean but the sheets on the beds would not stay on(wrong size). The bathroom fixtures needed... More
