The service here was absolutely awful. The 19 year old who is supposedly in charge was rude and tried to make us pay even more than the original price that he told us. It was very unprofessional and disgusting how he had his friends smoking weed in the room next to the check in. What was also very unprofessional was... More

My friends and I (anywhere from 3 to 6 people at a time) stayed at Seaside Sands Inn from Saturday, July 7th until Friday July 13th. We had a great stay overall. We booked our room through Booking.com which saved us about $100 for the week. When I first checked in there was trouble because they did not have my... More

One of the cheapest motels in the area but definitely the price reflected the quality. We still ended up paying $93 per night + tax for a room with 2 double beds as we were 4 people. The bathrooms were not very clean and the toilet did not work very well. The WIFI worked great and so did the TV.... More

2 words everyone- BED BUGS. The parking lot is a joke. You have to give your keys to management 4 your stay-not allowed to use your car for your stay. Management are VERY nice- Joe and Bunny. I feel bad they have to work for such a nasty and CHEAP boss. OVERPRICED for your accomodations. NOT a place for families... More

This place is a DUMP! The rooms are disgusting and upon arrival they looked they were never cleaned from the previous guest. Staff is so rude and actually came into our room to scream at us when we asked for extra towels. I even got bit by something while sitting on the unwashed comforter (bed bugs?). Oh and they have...
