My family and I have been coming to the The Sahara for the last few years and I am happy to say we just booked our reservation for July 2014!! The Sahara has the best location for my family, you just park the car on the lot for the week and you have the beach and boardwalk right in front... More

Our fire company (Whiting Fire Company # 1) has been coming to the firemen's convention since 1979 and we have stayed in the Sahara Motel since 2007 and this was the first year with the new owners of the motel and we were concerned how our stay would be as we had become accustomed to a routine and wasn't sure...

Most disturbing is the treatment you get at the Sahara. The new management is very unprofessional and disrespectful. They harassed us the entire weekend. The hotel itself could use some much needed TLC and upgrading. In my room I had a moldy shower head with the water controls coming away from the wall. Our kitchen counter was held up by... More

For starters, the owners are rude and disrespectful to their guests. We hold a family reunion in September and this year was our 40th Anniversary. Two years ago the motel had great owners "Nicky and Kenny" , but it was recently sold "Adam and Robin". They complained to the adults about immediately leaving the premises after check out. Our family... More

This review is probably one of the most interesting to respond to. Firstly this so called renunion is just a complete mob of people who want to break every rule of the place because they feel they are entitled to. The previous owners allowed them to do anything they wanted including bringing in outside guests that disturb all other guests... More
