Stayed two days at the Sands with a group of friends. Not meant for a luxury vacation, the Sands is comfy, homey and perfectly located. The Condo (#6) came with all the appliances and utensils for cooking and the beds were comfortable. Bathroom was small but well planned. Manager was helpful!

For a family reunion, my mother reserved all seven units in The Sands Condomimiums (the manager lives in Unit #5). 45 of us spent four wonderful days there. My immediate family stayed in Unit #1 and enjoyed it thoroughly. The bedrooms were wonderfully cozy, and the beds were quite comfortable. The bath & kitchen were very adequate. The living/dining room... More

We found this gem many years ago and have been reluctant to share about it. The value for two and three bedroom oceanfront rooms is unbeatable. They are a little outdated, but these are individually owned condos. Beach access is less than half a block away and lots of dining and shopping is within short walking distance. If you are... More

On a tour of the West Coast we stumbled on this great place. The Condos are individually owned and run by a manager. The owner of 4 condos was standing in for her and was so helpful. Our fully fitted room had been refurbished and was a delight. Bright fresh decor with views overlooking the Pacific and its great sandy... More

I used to go to the Sand's, in fact I have been going there for over 25 years. I loved staying in #4 and #6, but the units have become run down and the beds are very uncomfortable. There is a leaking ceiling in #4 that has been like that for 3 years. Every time I go, I am told... More

The Sands Condominiums is indeed in need of repairs. Constant, ongoing repairs that any ocean front building, taking on what the ocean has to give day after day, must contend with. The Sands was built in 1942. Buildings of this age have many issues on their own, but add the constant pounding of strong windy (90 - 120 mph) storms... More

After coming to Lincoln City many times, we finally came across this gem. We had a second story 3 bedroom oceanfront suite (Unit #8) with all the amenities and clean as can be for $190 (5 people). Too bad it was so cold and stormy; it would be nice to sit and relax on the deck. Lots of DVDs to... More

Really enjoyed our weekend in Unit #8 of this relaxed old school condo unit, perched on a bluff that overhangs the ocean. The unit is large and spacious, super comfortable, and clean, clean, clean. There are lots of nice little touches, - granite counters in the kitchen; lamps and tables always conveniently at hand; tons of towels in the bathroom;... More

We work very hard to make The Sands a comfortable, clean and enjoyable place to come when visiting the Oregon coast so when we see a review like this one we are particularly concerned. The photos on our web site are taken with a simple digital camera, no special lenses or fancy editing. This reviewer did have 6 adults staying... More
