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

Not a resort. Not worth the money. No screens on windows. Weird mountain themed decor. Needs paint and some grounds work. If resort now equal trashy apartment complex than I guess this place isn't bad for a resort. The trails to the ocean are not kept up. TV doesn't get reception and they lie on Priceline and say the offer... More

We were bringing our dog, and this was one of the few pet friendly hotels. It is kind of kitsch in the 80s decor and old appliances and rusty heaters, but we were there to see the beach and hang out, not be posh or anything. There is a hot tub, that's nice, and we were able to walk out... More

We stayed at the Sands resort during Easter weekend for a family reunion. We had the largest room there, 3 bedroom with a huge deck. The room wasn't at all "modern" but it was definitely clean and comfortable. Plenty of room for our large family to gather for the evening. Kitchen was big enough to make a dinner for 25+... More

we stayed there 1 night, and i wouldnt stay any more. the room itself had animal hair all over it with a rusty fridge and outdated stove and appliance. the baseboard heating is no good, the most heat we got was the complimentary duraflame log that they give you at checkin, but regardless of that...you are required to leave a...

We changed hotels at the last minute because we had to bring our dog. There was a little confusion at first in finding the right office but the staff was wonderful and the room was great. They were very helpful and as nice as could be. We will be staying here again.

My husband and I took a much needed weekend trip, to a town we used to live in, since we hadn't been there in a while. When I made the reservations, I asked for a balcony with a view. I was told we would be on the third floor (balcony with a view). When we came into town, we stopped... More
