4 of 5 stars Reviewed 5 days ago NEW

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Our first discovery is a nice lobby and we were impressed until we got to our room...a VERY outdated room with a nice TV.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

Stayed with a group of moms and kids/teens. Lazy river, indoor pool and direct beach access. Nice Lounge and bar for the adults....walking distance to the pier and beautiful views from the balcony. Will be back!

I really liked the location of this hotel. A grocery store was right down the street and a walmart was 5 minutes away( which came in handy when I forgot medicine at home). The room I had seems like they had renovated recently. While not perfect, it was clean and I loved having a small kitchen area. I enjoyed the... More

Great location...right on the beach! It is not near the tourist "strip" and there are not any attractions (aside from the beach, of course) within walking distance. So a car is a must if you want to get out and see the sights. There is a golf course close by. The staff we encountered were very friendly and helpful! The... More
