The only reason for the one star is for the very rude woman at the front desk named Heidi. She has a nasty attitude and even snapped at me when I asked what time check out was. There was no place to sit for breakfast except the noisy game room and when we sat on the stairs we where told... More

I do have to say we have stayed here a time or two in part because they do take dogs in some rooms and some where cheap when we were working on our property there. They have redone some rooms and those are better. But our last stay mid week the room would have frightened the Hotel Impossible Guy! It... More

Very disappointed! I have been coming here for many years w/my Mom every summer. Something I look forward to. Never again. I must say Mary in the front office was very nice, though. One of the two beds in our room was so squeaky and shot, that I woke up the next am with a backache. No screens on the... More

My family and I come to The Sands Resort every year, and this year we went twice. The Hotel for one has an amazing beach theme that is perfect for big ocean fans like me. The service is amazing, always clean rooms and nice people to show us around and even help us pick a great spot to eat out.... More

Overall not a bad decision. The facilities are a little run down, but clean. Sparse electric outlets (2). No a.c., no fan for restroom, the Wi-Fi is intermittent at best, but when your stuck with T-Mobile... The bed was comfy though. The best part of our stay here though was Mary in the office. She made it very possible for... More

For a fair price you get an awful lot!! They have rooms with kitchenettes. (Bring your own corkscrew) stocked with silverware and most utensils. They have a pool and hot tubs and continental breakfast each morning. They also have a very large picnic bbq patio area out back for with grills to use! Lovely ocean view from the top floor....

Heidi and Hope ruined my trip, worst people ive encountered. They treated us bad, didnt care when we had a problem, and were sour people. Have never stayed anywhere with worse customer service. No call back, Hop is never there and very unproffessional and Heidi is the very worst.
