Do not stay here....rooms need drastic upkeep. Wallpaper peeling, dirty carpets, dirty bathroom (had to remove a big clump of hair from the shower drain before using it), mold, plug-ins in the halls to mask the smells, window screens broken, poor mattresses and pillows, everything covered in days (probably weeks) of dust. If you are going to stay here take... More

I went to this "resort" because of the reviews. On some sites they were 3 stars, vs. 1-2 stars in other places. I was literally only going to be there to shower and sleep so I wasn't looking for anything too special. One advantage is there is a large refrigerator and microwave in the room. This is nice in the... More

Stayed at The Sands in Hampton for an off season band at Wallys. Not clean, the bed in the room was lumpy and old, the pullout bed was so old it was only about an inch thick. There was food on the floor and the bathroom had broken tile and wood and the floors were dirty. Air conditioner worked but... More

The hotel was run down and desperately needs updating. The hotel smells of old cigarettes and the "air fresheners" in the hallway does nothing to cover up the smell. The room itself was not dirty (that we saw), but the sink and bathtub were stained, as well as all of the grout and kitchen sink. The wall paper was peeling... More

We stayed for 5 days last week. Not the most expensive and not the best hotel. Room was large and clean but a bit worn in the decor. They could update the room to make the stay nicer. Only one block to beach

The second we got off the elevator we knew it was a mistake going there. I can deal with outdated decor and some odd smells accumulated over years of being on a beach, but the stench was so awful I could hardly breathe. There were potent air fresheners in every outlet in the hallway. If you have respiratory problems (asthma,... More

We stayed here two nights in late June. I liked the fact that every room is a suite with a bedroom, bathroom, living room, balcony and a kitchen with a full size fridge, microwave and table for four. The bed was comfortable but if you share a suite with more that 2 people, there is a pull out sofa which... More

The hotel is nowhere near being a resort. Only food or drinks are in vending machines, no pool, no gym, no activities of any sort. The rooms are basic with mattresses and linens that look like they were bought from Good Will. Told there was no coffee in rooms but there were coffee pots - WRONG-no coffee pot. Manager is... More
