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.

nothing special about the room...a bit pricey for the condition of the property in my opinion. First room we paid for was occupied when we went to enter it. Thankfully not of people just there belongings.

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

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
