I go about 20 times a year for the last 15 years, thoroughly enjoy it, and very friendly staff. I'm a single man and it's a great place for single people even though they do have a lot of things for children to do there for a family to go also.

I have stayed at the Sands several times. The very first time was fantastic, room was way more than I expected, the 2nd time hmmmm not so good, found several bugs in room. the 3rd time was the worse, I thought they must have given us the worse room in the hotel and like a few other reviewer...

Been staying there last 7yrs. for 2mo. Friendly staff, step out on to the beach, and of course Ocean /Annie's outside beach bar. going back next winter! Great place for snow birds to spend 2-3mo's. to get away from the Northern snow & cold.

We have stayed here before, but they spent the winter sprucing things up. The pool and bar area have new furniture and benches. Very clean, people are very nice. Close to all attractions, plenty for everyone to do, or not.

Our two bedroom unit in the "Towers" had been updated recently with fresh paint and kitchen cabinets and granite countertops, etc. It was also nicely decorated with pillows and dried flower arrangements. We have been coming to the Sands for years. It is our favorite place to stay because of Ocean Annie's and the close proximity to shopping and good... More

Although and older hotel, rooms were nicely appointed and included a few perks like free rounds of golf, water park attraction, and rides at small amusement park. As stated, it is an older hotel, but it sits directly on the beach and was perfect for us. Parking garage fills up quickly, but we always found a spot to park our... More

Front desk staff need training. Misplaced some information that was on my confirmation but they claimed they knew nothing about it. Room cleaning was not very good. Had to ask for towels and toilet paper. None left in room after cleaning. We had a group of 6 rooms and they put us all on different floors and we request same... More

This hotel could use an update. The door men were very nice and always held the door open regardless of who else they were helping. The smell on the floors was old and musty. The cafe on site was good, the pool was packed with screaming kids the entire time, my kids didnt even want to get in that mess.... More

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
