Booked the room for after a beachfront wedding but so awful we drove home after the wedding rather than stay in such an old rundown musty room. Threadbare sheets, hole in the wall, ratty rag on a windowsill and peeling furniture. The air conditioner blasted out smelly damp mildewed air.

I visited White Sands for a writer's retreat and while the hotel itself was very nice, the conference amenities were not as I'd hoped. There was difficulty with Wifi access, we had a heck of a time getting enough extension cords and several workers continuously walked through the room we were in. It was a lovely room, but open and... More

Do not be fooled by their website! Although located close to the beach and Boardwalk, this "hotel" is not worth the money. First of all, they charge you immediately before even seeing the facility and room (there is a reason for this)! We arrived and the moment we checked into our room we were evacuated due to a fire alarm.... More

We arrived on a Sunday at 2 pm. Our room was not ready yet so we went to the Firefly Lounge for lunch. Great service and delicious food. We went back at 3 pm and were told check in was guaranteed for 3 pm or after. We waited for about 45 min with a few other families and then finally... More

This is a beachfront at the New Jersey shore hotel/motel with three lovely pools. Pools are heated! The resort is spread out along both sides of Ocean Avenue. The hotel is on the west side and the motel buildings on the east side. The motel rooms are on the beach side. You want the east side! Get a room with... More

First off, they will want your credit card the moment you walk in, and then they will charge you the full price of your stay and also want you to sign a terms and conditions form. Second, this is a second rate motel on a busy street with two story condos blocking the view of the beach for two floors.... More

This is not a resort. This is a motel and a run down motel at that. Many reviews state that this hotel was renovated after Sandy. It is not rennovated. It may have been restored in areas but we stayed in two room and both were equally outdated and awful. You have to pay to use the phone and wifi.... More

My visit to White Sands... When we arrived to check in they pretty much grabbed my credit card. I said I was assuming they were just taking the card, so that they could authorize it and charge it on our departure. Instead they said that it was their policy to charge the entire remaining balance upfront as well as an... More
