“Great beach views”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 7, 2013

We stayed here for my husbands holiday party. The Swan Ballroom is great for a party. Food was fabulous. This is actually the 2nd time I have been here for a party and can't say enough good things about the food. Our room was very small, can't imagine staying there for a week with my family. BUT the room was very clean and we couldn't beat the views. Check in and out was very fast. All staff we came in contact with were very nice and accomadating. Would stay here again if just my husband and I. But with our family we would need a larger room or we would stay somewhere else.

3 of 5 stars Reviewed December 23, 2012

We stayed here for the Rehoboth Beach Half & Full Marathon race. It was very conveniently located to the start of the race. The room was okay and consisent with beachside hotels; however, it was surprisingly larger than expected with a living room area separate from the bedroom. The staff was very friendly and helpful. There was a party in the hotel the second night we stayed there and the music was loud. Once it finally stopped, the room across the hall from us was having a party and the door was open so we could hear conversations word for word. We called the front desk since it was after midnight and they immediately sent security to ask them to close the door and be a little more quiet. Unfortunately the ice machines were out of order and almost every floor by Saturday at noon; this may be due to the hotel being full of runners who needed ice for ice baths. Unfortunately, the ice machines were not fixed by Sunday.

We apologize that the ice machines got such a workout that weekend! It was great to have so many marathon runners in the hotel! We applaud your commitment to run even in the drizzle, fog and rain we experienced that day! And we are happy to hear that you liked your room and that our front desk and security staff responded quickly to your noise concern. The Atlantic Sands tries to create a very comfortable environment for all guests and we hope to welcome you for the race again next year, and many times in between!

Pros- reasonably priced, clean oceanview rooms.

Cons - rooms are extremely small (e.g., can't use desk and desk chair because they are directly up against a bed).

- rooms are badly in need of updating (e.g., stained carpeting, entry door damaged and askew).

- bad plumbing (e.g., most shower water diverts to faucet, toilet tends to not flush).

- staff (e.g., housekeeping entered our room with a do not disturb sign hanging on the door).

- lack of amenities (e.g., no coffee or fixings in a public space, no real mugs for hot beverages).

All that being said, there's nothing like lying in bed and watching the ocean, so I'd probably do it again if the price was right.

We stayed at the Atlantic Sands two days prior to Hurricane Sandy, the location is perfect, right on the boardwalk, really close to the main street in Rehobeth Beach, the rooms are good, not great, but the staff went out of their way to help with things concerning the coming storm, which we were mandatorily evacuated, very happy with total stay and plan to go back very soon.

Room Tip: Make sure to ask for a room with a "sitting" balcony, some of the lower floor suites do no...

We stayed here for an event the weekend before Hurricane Sandy. Our room (126 or 128) was very nice - huge bathroom with jacuzzi, mini kitchen, partial ocean view. The rooms was clean, staff was very nice.

The hotel was very full - news crews due to the hurricane as well as event participants. Staff was very efficient in spite of it all.

We have stayed at the Atlantic Sands several times. I go back because the location is awesome. The rooms on the other hand, well have alot to be desired. You have to be careful as to where they put you, this past time we were there was 2 weeks ago as Rehoboth was getting ready for "Sandy". We stayed in room 114. The room was ok..very small. Bathroom was not the best, broken tiles on the floor under the sneak, the toilet not bolted down correctly and the tub had a nasty drain in it, the carpets needed a good shampooing. Bed linens were clean. We once had a room that was absolutely filthy, dark and dingy..we complained and they moved us to a suite which was much better. The staff was great. Like I said if I find something better I probably will say goodbye to Atlantic Sands, it's the location that keeps bringing me back.

Room Tip: Definitely Ocean front. It seemed whenever they gave us a street room it was filthy..with the excep...

We stayed here the weekend Hurricane Sandy headed for town. Located right on the boardwalk and one block from the main street in town. The rooms are various sizes and get some hard wear, but it is generally well kept and clean. The staff are hard working and responsive to requests. Breakfast buffet is very good (I don't know if it's a regular feature.) The ballroom is very nice with a wall of windows that overlook the boardwalk/beach. Chairs seem kind of low to ground and bathroom lights are veryl slow to warm up and get bright.
