White Sands is our go to place. We have stayed on the resort side as well as the hotel side. Hotel side is newer but I would rather be on the ocean side. Very close to the ocean. They have 2 outdoor pools and they provide some toys for the kids to play with. This year was the first year... More

The location of the White Sands was perfect. However, it was not a clean hotel to say the least. For after 3 days of my feet sticking to the floor in my room, I decided to wash it myself and the towel was pitch black. At the pool, there were Fritos, bugs, and band aids floating around. After mentioning it... More

The front desk was pleasant and helpful, the coffee in the lobby was great. The room was nice, but the bathroom could have been nicer, it wasn't really dirty, just not sparkling clean. We had a balcony that was great to sit out on. Pool towels were provided and that was nice, but they ran out one day. There's a... More

i was skeptical of the motel at first from reading the reviews but I have to say I was pleasantly surprised at how nice the whole experience has been. We stayed in the 400 building two room motel side. You do have a view of the ocean and beach from the common hallway which was a plus since it was... More

I'm not sure that all the reviews here are legitimate. This is a lovely hotel that is unmatched in the area. The White Sands is definitely not a low priced hotel, so if you are expecting to pay 125 or 150 then skip this hotel and read the reviews for the cheaper places. The location is outstanding and the facilities... More

If you're going to stay here, stay in the new building. The older part of the hotel was not great. The bathroom was the size of a closet and any time someone flushed the toilet it sounded like a helicopter was taking off. The buffet was not very good and nobody showed up for work on Sunday morning leaving only... More

For the price I paid $325 for one night midweek, I think the hotel room could have been cleaner. The bathroom was covered in hair both on the floor and toilet. So obviously it was never cleaned before our arrival. It really grossed me out. My sons white socks were black from walking on the carpet. The balcony screen door... More

When I made my reservation back in March I advised the person that I was disabled and I would need my luggage brought into my room. The person I spoke to said this would not be a problem. On the day we were leaving for our trip from my friends house in Staten Island I called to let them know... More
