If you like filth, constant drinking, slamming doors, fireworks on the beach all night, smelly odors, disgusting carpet and high prices, then you found the right place! Woo-hoo! This place is an absolute dump. I think people drink constantly to stay drunk enough to forget the absolute filth in which they are staying and for which they are paying top... More

We have been staying here for several years. We love the location and Ocean Annie's. Ah, Ocean Annie's..we think it is the only reason this place is still open. We have kept giving them the benefit of the doubt (since new owners took over a few yrs ago) but we have stayed here for the last time. We booked an... More

I have to admit that I read all of these reviews before we left for our vacation and thought that things couldn't be that bad... unfortunately it was. So before I rant, please take these reviews seriously and re-think your stay. If you are traveling with young children this is not the best place to stay. I would say that... More

I just got back from a 3 night stay at the Sands Ocean Club. I have to admit I have stayed here in years past but NEVER AGAIN! It has always been bad but never this bad. First of all the room was disgusting..wall behind trash can had food stuck on it, arms of the chairs and couches were black,... More

The pool area is awesome, and Ocean Annies really is a good compliment. The only thing negative I saw was that the hotel elevators needed some carpet fresh or tile instead of carpet, as frequent wet visitors caused some mildew. The staff was great. The room was modest, but good for the price, and I don't know who had slow... More

Hotel rooms may be awful, but book through an owner! We've stayed 4 years at the Sands and the rooms have NEVER been dirty or musty. vrbo.com is a great way to find rooms. I'm assuming not all owners are alike, so I would contact them to see the responses. I've contacted a couple with little to no response, but... More

Lets start by saying the hotel does not resemble the brocheure except for the lobby. We were scheduled for a 6 night stay and cut this vacation short due to the unsanitary conditions, rudeness of the hotel staff as well as the staff of the on site entertainment staff of Ocean Annie's. The room had two lamps with burned out... More

I booked this hotel through Hotwire for a business trip. This hotel is not even close to a three star "resort". It is a tired, used up beachfront hotel. Lobby/Check-In/Parking The hotel is being painted or cleaned on the outside, so lots of tarps and scaffolding. The lobby is dismal. There is a loud, smoky bar right off the lobby,... More

THIS HOTEL IS UNSAFE After receiving inaccurate directions from guest services, and driving around North Myrtle Beach for an unintended moonlight tour, my 10 year old daughter and I arrived at the Sands Ocean Club Resort on Friday evening, April 18. We had booked a room through Hotwire, which had rated it as a 3 star hotel. We intentionally chose... More

We arrived midweek and the bars were hopping. The first floor front has a bar with karaokee and the back has an outdoor bar that had a band every afternoon and into the night. Fireworks continued at night on the beach all week. We left early due to the noise...couldn't have the balcony door open because of the loud music,... More
