We stayed only one night but loved it. First off my husband looks for bathrooms being clean and this passed his tests...Thank goodness. We were here in the fall so not alot of people around. We had a great view and our dog loved the "magic wall" The people next door to our room where out of the balcony and... 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

This is the only review I've ever written and it's only after being here for a few hours. I was told wifi was here but now I learn that's only if you go to the lobby. Our stay at the sands resort (HA Ha) went downhill from there.When we stepped in the room I asked my husband if the floor... 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.

We stayed in a 2 bedroom unit on the ground floor near the outdoor pool. We were there for the final weekend of razor clam digging. The room is large and had plenty of room for all. Nice people at the front desk. I would definitely stay here again. There is so much to do in Ocean Shores. We had... More

We didn't feel it was as bad as some of these reviews would lead you to believe. It was OK. It was dog friendly and it was clean. They don't maintain any trails to the beach--they called them deer trails. But you can drive to and on the beach in Ocean City, so no big deal. Basic, filling continental breakfast.... More
