I stayed with a group of writers for a weekend retreat and several of us shared a room. We were put in the 400 block of rooms across the street from the main hotel. This worked well for us because it was nice to be so close to the beach (could see the ocean from the balcony). My roommate and... More

We live in the area and the White Sands is where we have out of guests stay as our home isn't large enough to accommodate all.

We took the kids down for one night from the 26th to the 27th. Jenkinson's Aquarium was having an evening event and thought it would be nice to stay over. It was! We've stayed here in the summer and never been disappointed and the winter was no exception. The room was perfect. Two king beds, and spotless! We received a... More

The White Sands was the gathering point for our family members traveling from Georgia, Pennsylvania, and Chicago. Management worked with us to put them all together. Family members were impressed with the quality of the rooms. They took advantage of the pool and hot tub thanks to the suggestion we book in the main building and not the one across... More

Our telephone did not work, and the staff knew about it but wasn't fixed. The slidding door was broke. The jacuzzi didn't work, only two jets would go on. Would have to think twice before returning...people at desk where really nice.

Stayed here for a wedding. Rooms are in need of an update. The bathroom was terrible, with things broke/hardly working. For the price, I expected a lot more! I know it's a good "location" but would think twice before staying there again!
