We have stayed in this resort yearly for over 20 years. We are amazed that it has fallen into such disrepair. The rooms and public areas are desperately in need of refurbishing. The venue is otherwise great though. It is situated on the beach within easy walking distance of a pier. There is an outdoor beach band bar, lazy river,... More

When i arrived at the desk to check in at approximately 7:30 PM i felt as if i was bothering the clerk. She only spoke about 5 words to me during the entire process. I then parked my car, grabbed my luggage and headed to the room. After searching the 9th floor for my room, I proceeded to the desk... More

We stayed there in July 2014, loved it because my favorite things is the beach and music, they had 2 live bands that played until 11:00 pm, so I could lay in the sun and listen to the music or sit in my oceanfront room right in view of Ocean Annies. Only thing wrong, the room was very small but... More

I’ve said it before and I will again…if you’re looking for 5 star this is not your place. However, if you want good accommodations, quality service, nightly outdoor entertainment, and excellent location then consider the Sands O.C. I have been staying here since 2001 during my annual golf trips to the Grand Strand and I plan to book next year’s... More

If you're cranky and ornery and a fundamentalist, this place is probably not for you. If you enjoy life, dancing meeting new friends, this is your place. The accommodations are not five star but you know that going in. The karaoke in the lounge draws truly stellar performances. The dance party after is always energetic and full of life.

Our first discovery is a nice lobby and we were impressed until we got to our room...a VERY outdated room with a nice TV. Thereafter, mold on the wallpaper and rust on the ceiling in the bathroom, stains on a pillow case and a hairs on the sheet. A smelly sofa and rippled carpet in the living room and large... More

I have stayed at this resort for the past 5 years and it never disapoints. The condos are spacious and comforatable and I can 't say enough about Ocean Annie's Bar. Try their Ocean Breeze Drink, it's my favorite.

While I'm sure the younger crowd would love this place with the dance club downstairs and Ocean Annies right outside, I wouldn't recommend this for older travelers looking to have a quiet couple of days. Every morning there was alcohol trash (bottles, cans, boxes) in the hallways and even saw vomit in the hallway one night. Not the cleanest place... More

Not an upscale place by any means. Our group has stayed here a number of years now and we know what to expect. This was the first year I had a room in the "executive tower". Too small compared to the rooms in the hotel towers. But, the room was clean and had been updated probably in the past 5... More

Stay elsewhere! Upon entering out room on the 11th floor, we found bedbugs in both the second bedroom and on the sofa bed. Staff was notified and they came to change the sheets. The other issue was that housekeeping never came to clean during the entire weekend. We had to constantly call to get clean towels, etc. Lastly, out room... More
