“Flies everywhere”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed June 11, 2010

We went to the Atlantic Sands Hotel because of it's location (right on the ocean). But when we got to our room, there were about four flies in there. My boyfriend killed them but then they just kept coming. We think they were coming in through the air conditioning or something, but we aren't sure. We ended up killing about 15 flies total and there were still some flies in the room when we left. I couldn't stand being in the room anymore because they were so irritating. We didn't tell the front desk about the issue, though we probably should have. Every time we killed all of the flies in the room, we figured the problem was over...but then some more would appear. It wasn't a bad hotel, but the flies were so annoying.

This hotel has it all and is the best that Rehoboth Beach has to offer! Everything from
the staff, to the rooms to the location was absolutely first class and for a very reasonable
price. My vacation in Rehoboth was wonderful, thanks to the staff at the Atlantic Sands.
The General Manager at this hotel runs a tight ship filled with enthusiastic employees
and happy guests. I wish I could be there every day!

The location cannot be beat. Depending on which wing you stay in, rooms can be small or without a view. In room refrigerators and microwaves are nice. Don't like the automatic safe charge unless you request the charge be reversed - bad business practice. The hotel was built in 3 stages - hard to manever. Carpet is worn but rooms were clean and well kept. Park your car and walk to everything downtown. Pool was dry in May with great weather.

Came back from a weekend at the hotel. Overall, it fits the bill, but the devil is in the details. For the third year running, there was no wi-fi service in the room. Instead of telling us that you are working on it, it would be much better to get it done. I'll be damned if I'm going to come down from my 3rd floor room to the lounge or lobby to log into my laptop after I have taken off my makeup and changed into my pajamas. If you need some leads on people who can get this done for you, I can refer you to several of them. They could use the work.

I go to powwows all over the place, and if the Quality Inn In New Market Virginia, can make wi-fi available to their room guests IN THEIR ROOMS, perhaps it's time that you all get with the program.

Our sink was leaking from the trap, too.

Look. You have a lot of very nice people who work for you. They shouldn't have to field complaints about stuff you should have taken care of three years ago, and we shouldn't have to be borrowing wi-fi from the hotel next door. I recommend this hotel with reticence. If you are having a conference, it is really the only game in town. If you are there for leisure, you could probably do much worse, but definitely much better.

My wife and I stayed at the Atlantic Sands for a weekend getaway. The employees at the check-in counter were very nice and answered all the questions we had. The hotel is located on the boardwalk, which was under renovation. Our room, however was in the back of the hotel and faced someone's backyard. The suite had a small living room with a T.V., a desk w/ chair, a couch, and a lounge chair. There was a small kitchenette with a fridge, sink, microwave, and some counter space. The bathroom was standard. Our bedroom had a king sized bed, dresser, closet, and T.V. Everything was great until we went to sit in the bed. The bed was so soft that it immediatley swallowed us up. The bed was really the only downfall of this hotel.

been here a few times with friends. Big hotel, set right on the boardwalk. We reserved rooms actually on the pool level so we just had to walk out our window and your there, pool very nice, but freezing. Nice clean rooms with all the usual coffee makers, hair dryers, etc. To be honest, its like every room in Orlando, but three times more expensive. It is a quaint wee town, absolutely gorgeous at night, the houses and shops are covered in pretty lights all year round I think. Great for walking around, nice eateries, the Idaho Chips from the boardwalk are fantastic, as is the ice cream parlours. I often travel alone, and would feel 100% safe at anytime in this sleepy, unspoilt town

Our family had a wonderful time experiencing the hospitality, the ocean view and relaxing by the pool at the Tiki Bar. The front desk made reservations for us to go to a live show just down the street at a local theater.
