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

I wanted to give the White Sands a good review and actually waited three months to do so. 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. This past Dec.we had family booked at the WS for a wedding.They were in the motel... More

I am very saddened by this review. I take complete responsibility! I feel terrible that you had a bad experience and that I never got back to you. This winter was very difficult for me and my family, as my father-in-law passed away around Christmas. I have to say, I always get back to people. I am afraid during that... More

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!

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.

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.

We will meet your expectations. I apologize for the issues last Fall. We had found that there were a few phone issues that needed to be resolved still after Sandy. You would be surprised how many issues continued to arise in the years to follow that horrible storm. I do hope you will decide to return again this year. More
