I have stayed at the Atlantic Sands twice in the last two years. Just a few steps from the famous boardwalk. Room is decent at best with a small kitchen to cook. As prior review wrote the mattress is ungodly awful. Worst I've been on except when I was locked up. Owner Dorie, her Mom and staff are friendly people. I went to Florida in March and there were plenty of empty rooms and asked them if they would come down 20.00 and they said no, so I found a much nicer place down the boardwalk at a cheaper price that I have since been to twice. I guess rather than make something they prefer to let you walk away. Hope this review helps someone.
