They had enough room for our family of 6, the rooms were clean, a bit dated. but when you have 2 small kids that's just fine because they weren't going to hurt anything! There only drawback was there was no AC, but they did have a fan that when placed in a good location and you opened up the back... More

I should have read amenities better. I went there for the pool, hot tub and wifi only to find out the hot tub was so hot we could only stay a few minutes and could see why they were empty and the pools were not heated and too cold to swim more than a few minutes. The wifi is only... More

This is a nice hotel and we have stayed here several times. It is nothing fancy but it does have a continental breakfast. They allow pets so if you don't mind dogs barking late in the evening or early in the morning you will be ok. It is very clean place. There was supposed to be free WIFI but it... More

I was reading the other reviews and I must agree, summer time pool is very crowded with children. Suggestion maybe make 9:00- 10 adult time. They do have two pools one outside and one in, I must say beds are old. I think they are trying to upgrade but still needs a lot of work. They have added a Cont.... More

Not neat & clean, grounds not clean, window locks broken, blind broken, phone jack plate falling out of wall, no plug in sink, room small and crowded, box spring showed & dirty, no wifi in rooms. Definitely not a resort!

This is our third time staying at The Sands. We choose this location for the price and because they take pets. In the past we have gone down over Thanksgiving and have booked a room with a kitchen, yes I could cook a Thanksgiving dinner in the little kitchen! This time we chose a room with a view, perfect location... More

We arrive at noon on a slow Wednesday and were greeted with a scowl. The hotel was clearly empty, yet we were told that we couldn't possibly receive the keys until 2. The hangry woman told us we could pay for our room, but had to come two hours later. Not very accommodating and frankly, rude.
