I booked a double room with 2 double beds thru Hotels.com whom put 2 adults down instead of 1 adult and 2 children (17 & 12). The Sands wanted to charge me an additional $10.00 for the extra person. Of course I argued and eventually, I was told I would not be charged. Then we get into the room, looks... More

The Good: Flat screen TV. No bugs. The Bad: Shower is a walk in tiled wall and floor type of shower. What you'd expect in a campground. Sitting on toilet does not provide enough room for your knees if you're 6 ft+ Room door barely is in one piece. AC is a window AC Carpet is old and shows it.

Firs of all, do not believe the pictures, the pool looked nice but when we got there, it looked like a a fish pond, they said it was because of the saturated chlorine, but it looked like it was abandoned for years....The coffee maker was broken, the room and tiny bathroom looked filthy and the towels were stained and worn...

My boyfriend and I seriously considered sleeping the car. The room smelled like someone had just smoke an entire pack of cigarettes in the room, there was a hole in the bathroom door, and hair in the bed.JUST DISGUSTING. I don't even know how this place stays in business.

WARNING: It is best to sleep in the car than staying in this motel. This statement describes all. I think spending time in typing 200 characters is all waste of time but i had to do that to complete this review. Bad beds, wifi sucks, restroom stinks out of all management is sucks big time !

For $130 + tax a night I definitely expected something better! The room was dirty andsmelly. The carpet looked like its never been vacuumed! Something behind a cabinet has been scratching or chewing something. I read another comment from a different traveller who saw a rat. I guess that's what it was. Overall, the experience was disgusting. Everything in the... More

On visiting the above motel for a quiet evening alone....I had an unexpected visitor. The room was absolutely filthy and the air conditioner filter had to be washed just to get it to turn on. If I didn't need the quiet, I would have left. After killing a few spiders and cleaning a few more things, I managed to fall... More

Way over priced. Disgusting. Only place for me to stay at short notice. Dirty, crusty carpet - something that looked like Mushroom soup that had never been cleaned. Wallpaper falling off, exposing a hole in the wall. Smelled. Mold in shower. Slept with the light on, I was afraid of what may crawl about in the dark. So very gross.... More
