Been here two years in a row. Yea, the rooms might be outdated but they are clean. We don't book the room to spend time in it or watch TV. We are here to sight see, its an adult group and we are here to have fun! Plus we like the freedom we get by able to sit outside in... More

This place has seen its age. Its dark and run down. You may find a great price here but not worth it. There are other places near by to stay at. The rooms are small and dirty. It needs a whole new overhall done.

There is plenty to complain about with this motel, but it is GOTL. If you are looking for a cheap place to sleep that is on the beach and the strip, this could be your place. Debbie has checked us in the past few years and is friendly and easy going. She is willing to assist you with any questions... More

Would NEVER RECOMMAND to anyone!!!!!! Not even the dog!!!! The rooms are out of date and I think they furnished it from a thirft store or Good Will. It had a very musty odor to it and the beds we're terrible to sleep on ,if you could sleep at all. The pool outside our cottage wasn't very clean either.

Rooms were dirty. We weren't able to open the windows. I have nothing against motorcycles, but, they were parked outside our door at all times..Blankets looked like the weren't washed for 15 years, falling apart. No service. Had to ask for towels, only to find the office person drinking with some bikers. I could go on and on...The room reminded... More

Was barely worth staying...but we did. The sheets were clean and the bathroom was passable. The location, easy walk to lots of restaurants and entertainment, and the view with the sound of the surf were the ONLY redeeming features.

I paid $85 for a one bedroom. After I booked I looked up reviews that I was upset to see, were all bad. I was super nervous when I opened the door but was pleasantly surprised to see it really wasn't that bad. The bathroom was super tidy. The carpet was a little staind with some cig burns but looked...

We had reserved a condo at Sands Beach Resort for a week starting June 15, 2012. We got there and could not stay. The condo was horrible. The furniture was filthly and stained as well as the carpet. It looked the place hadn't been painted since it was built. The pictures portray a nice place, but it looks nothing like... More
