The Sands is just one more example of an establishment posting pictures that are not representative of the overall condition of the place. We were given an initial unit that looked like it hasn't been updated since the 90's, nor had anything been replaced recently including blankets and pillows, kitchen supplies, drapes, sofa bed mattress, etc. When we complained, we...

From the pictures on the web search, the only true room feature was that there was a wall mounted TV. We booked an ocean front room and got an ocean view, that was overlooking the dirty roof and air conditioning units. Across we looked into the windows of the other unit, just horrible view. The floor was so sticky in... More

I've stayed at this hotel several times over the years, sometimes overnight, other times for a week at a time. I choose to stay again because I've enjoyed my stays, I like the part of Myrtle Beach where this hotel is located, the staff makes me feel welcome and the price is competitive. Sands Ocean Club is off the beaten... More

I took a trip in February 2015 and from the pictures this resort looked pretty decent but when we go there it was a whole different story, it was not clean at all. It was not well kept , It had stains in the bathroom, dust everywhere ! And maintenance was very poor, maybe it would be alright if you... More

i have stayed up and down the Atlantic coast from Long Island to Miami Beach, but by far my favorite spot for, nightlife, golf, cuisine, and attractions is Myrtle Beach, South Carolina. The Sands Ocean Club has played a large part in this. The SOC has the legendary Ocean Annies, Ocean front bar staffed with beautiful ladies to see to... More

Thank you for taking a moment to leave a review. We appreciate the feedback and are glad to hear the front desk came through and solved the room issue. The condition of the first room is definitely unacceptable and this will be addressed. More

I have been staying at Sands Ocean Club in Myrtle Beach for the last five years. I love the location and the view of the ocean is magical. The prices are always great even in the peak summer season and if you love to golf the off season rates are fantastic. Now they are tied into the best course I... More

Stayed here in late July and as I stated then, outside of the room was great but our issues were inside the room. Not this time. Great stay in a lovely room. The room seemingly had recently been renovated and was beautiful. The leather couch, mirrored walls, flat screen tvs, new dining room decor and the kitchen all were first... More

I'm not snobbish about the places I stay (you can see my prior reviews) but this place was not at all what I expected when I booked a "condo". I guess it's semantics and a little bit of deceitful presentation, I expect when I rent a beach side , beach view condo, I was expecting a ground level place. I... More

Thank you for your review. Yes, during the off season we tend to do renovations and repairs. We apologize if you were not happy with your accommodations. Certainly with it being the slow season, we could have found a more suitable room. We hope you expressed your concerns with the manager on duty. Please do come again so that we... More

Thank you for your review. We apologize that the room you were first in was not acceptable. Yes, they are individually owned and kept up by the owners. This is no excuse however.
