We booked spur of the moment for the 16th-17th. The staff was wonderfully accommodating. We loved the room right on the beach and poolside. The room was very clean and ready for us when we got there. For the price and location it cant be beat. Just a perfect little hotel in a wonderful spot

It's an older hotel but very clean, quiet, and well managed. You get a great location..."on the beach", great amenities with spacious rooms, and a peaceful, affordable vacation from seniors to family's with kids.

Had it not been for my awful experience trying to get any response from a manager or owner, I would have considered this place quaint. A bit run down but clean. Problem started my first night when it turned out that the A/C in the room wasn't cooling. The front desk told me to turn it off for 20 minutes,... More

We had planned for months to stay at The Sands as we love old traditional motels, however, we were very disappointed when we arrived. We arrived late and just dropped off our luggage and went to dinner. Upon returning we went in the kitchen and an large roach crawled across the floor! Ugh. We reported it the next morning and...

Our family of four stayed 4 days and we had a great time! The front desk staff was very helpful and friendly. We were able to view a room before our stay as well. We had a lower level poolside room. The room was in good condition and could see where some guests would complain but there's really nothing to... More

I just returned from The Sands where I attended a family reunion. There were so many issues, it's hard to know where to begin. How about the ever changing room rate? We booked a block of rooms months in advance. The price changed repeatedly, including the day of arrival. I realize the website says "prices subject to change without notice",... More

Been going here since I was a kid. Love the place, don't change a thing. The staff are the friendliest. I always get the same room each year, sure its not the most up to date place, but that is what I like about it. I will continue to recommend The Sands to everyone.

Let me just begin with, I was not expecting anything fancy at The Sands. My expectations were low. But I will never ever go back to this place. First of all, less than 24 hours before check in (7pm the day before to be exact) I received a call from The Sands informing me that my rate was going up... More

We will come back. We loved The Sands. It is old, no doubt about it. But it has much charm. It was clean. If the carpet was replaced, it would get an excellent rating, instead of very good ;). The pool is great, the beach is great. Our room had 2 double beds as there was 4 of us one... More
