I have stayed at this property on three prior occasions. Location is a minute from famed boardwalk and located right behind Nicks Resturant. There is no pool but the beautiful ocean is a five minute walk. The bandstand which has live music five nights a week and is a five minute walk with several bars and stores for shopping and ideal for people watching. The room is decent at best and beds are not very good if you have back issues. There is a small kitchen for cooking so you can save on eating out. Also there is an outside grill and a secured washer and dryer room. On my last visit to Hollywood I had planned on staying elsewhwere but in the ast minute it fell thru so I stopped by The Atlantic Sands and asked if they could drop their fee as I was tight on money and they adamantly said no despite half occupancy and they knew who I was. Now here's the kicker, I own a two week time share at The Sands which is located on the boardwalk next to The Marriot Hotel and s arguably one of the finest timeshares on the beach. I walked down to The Sands and they were more than happy to accomadate me at a steep price reduction. The Sands agreed with my thinking that its better to make something rather then nothing as long as you don't take a loss. I shared my decision with Dori the owner of the Atlantic Sands and didn't even receive a counter offer which I would have declined anyway. My post is not about sour grapes its about human interaction and common sense. Please do not get The Sands and The Atlantic Sands confused. The Sands is a four star top flight resort. Google it and you can see for your self not to mention I am looking to but an additional week after abor day.
