This was the smallest room in a motel I have ever seen. Now I know what a jail cell must be like! No room to put a suitcase, so had to move a chair out of the room onto the balcony. There was not a night stand on either side of the bed which was a problem since my husband... More

We had stayed here when they first re-opened and loved it. I understand the resort is under new ownership and was afraid that my be the reason for some slightly negative results. However we found the resort as peaceful and relaxing as before. As a matter of fact, very little has changed. I did notice most of the staff was... More

I booked a room for one night for my 9 year old daughter and myself. We had room 308. The room was small, the bathroom tiny (pedestal sink and no place to put toiletries/makeup, etc). The TV is a smaller tube TV (not flat of high def) and the satellite TV didn't include many channels I usually watch (investigation discovery... More

The Beachhouse rooms are smaller than small, the bed was very poor, the bathroom small. If you want vintage and don't need to turn around in you room too much, this is the place for you. We had to set a chair outside on the porch in order to make some room. The grounds and pool are well kept up.... More

Loved the salt water pool. The grounds. Good value.kid friendly. But people who have a bad back should check out the bed before taking the room. Mine was very soft and sagged..assume that they have some with firmer beds? Often at hotel's you wish your bed at home was as good. Not the case this time.

We booked our stay at Sun N Sand Resort in June after reading several positive Trip Advisor reviews. I started getting nervous about our decision after reading some of the negative reviews popping up the past few weeks. We stayed at the resort August 10-13 and were very pleased. I would say we absolutely got what we paid for. The... More

The staff was nice, the grounds were kept nice, but what matters to me most is cleanliness...and here is where I had a problem with Sun n Sand resort. The baseboards were filthy, the bathtub would not drain fast enough. I stood in my own water the whole time I was in the shower, so gross. Our comforter had stains... More

My wife and booked a long weekend at this resort. Though not all that far, we'd never heard of it. Trip Advisor and pictures sold us. On making the reservation, with a delightful person, I was told "We'll ask 50 as a deposit." Unusual, but $50 isn't going to break the bank. We discovered the next day that it was... More

There is no truth in Internet advertising ... especially at the Sun n Sand Resort. Having booked a room sight unseen (based on the Internet photos), I booked a single for myself and my two children (ages 9 and 7). Since there were no double rooms available, the phone attendant said that a single would be sufficient and that the... More

While right on a highway, this hotel is a little out of the way. Don't expect to be able to walk anywhere, though it's any easy drive to many towns. The staff is exceptional -- couldn't do enough for us. The grounds are lovely, including a pond with water feature, volleyball net and fire pits. The rooms do need some... More
