We picked this hotel for 2 main reasons{ Dog friendly, very far from the festivities since we could only come during "Irish Festival". I've experienced it before and it was an excuse to wear a green shirt or a kilt and get absolutely drunk and unruly and this was no exception. We checked in and were greeted by a very... More

There was noisy partying just downstairs OUTSIDE under our room past midnight. I could not sleep, and there was no answer when I called the manager. There was no offer to adjust the room rental when we complained. The rooms were small with minuscule bathroom. There was a small fridge and tiny microwave. The bed was OK for the few... More

We were very pleased. The sandbox has been renovated and is great. Very family friendly. Management was very eager to please. Can't say anything negative about it. Not within walking distance to beach and Boardwalk unless your in great shape or young!!

My husband and I really enjoyed our stay at the Sand Box. The staff was very helpful and eager to please. Room was very clean . Our 2 dogs were treated very well -- they even brought a tray with water and food dishes with home made dog biscuits. Would definitely go back again.

The hotel was very nice and the staff very friendly. They have lots to do there, pool, grills and of course....a sandbox! The only thing I didn't like, the bathroom was in need a good cleaning...soap scum on walls.

New owner has taken possession of this property a year ago and he has done an fabulous job thus far. The most important thing is it is CLEAN!! What I mean is that he has staff disinfecting all surfaces in public areas by the pool, including the armrests on the pool chairs, etc., daily. They are constantly emptying trash cans,... More

Off the beaten path a little bit, but a great little spot... I loved my weekend at the sandbox! Can't wait to come back! The rooms were clean and comfortable, the bathrooms were 60's and not redone, but I loved them, VERY mod bathrooms. Bed was comfy, pool was clean. I could totally recommend this place.

The Pros: Very cheap, decent location, friendly staff, easy parking under cover. Nice little pool and hot tub. Allows pets. The Cons: Tiny bathroom with a shower that didn't work very well. Sort of a musty smell in room. In-window a/c unit that is loud and can be hard to get to the right temperature. Absolutely no frills. Out-dated. You... More

This is by far the best hotel we have stayed at in all of our years of travel. The team here really has made us feel at home and been so kind from the start. The rooms are very very clean. The beds are comfortable and the location is perfect. This privately owed business has so much to offer. Grills... More
