“Good value for the money”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed June 30, 2014

Went down for a for pre-anniversary celebration and dive weekend.
A+ on the location, right on the Intercostal Waterway, 2 blocks to beach, really walkable in fact, and east to I95. Killer view from 8th floor.
Facility is an older building but, for the most part, well maintained, we really liked the colorful paint job they did, perfect for the setting. Surprised that we didn't have a frig or microwave.
MUST go by the outside bar and pool and watch the boats go by, morning and sun sets, all great. Didn't try the food but it looked good, the mixed drinks were good. Get jumping at night, fun place.
Staff were all friendly and professional.
Will definitely return here. thanks folks.
Recommended by dive school, glad they did.

Great view and pool, bar and restaurant on the inland water way with a good view. It is dated but clean. Ask for a room with a refrigerator and microwave. Although they said all rooms have wifu the wifi did not work from the room of all our 17 peoples rooms. We had to go to the lobby to use it. The restaurant had bar food at a bar food price. A two block walk to the beach. No breakfast available at the hotel, we had to walk a few blocks for breakfast. It is a 300 ft or so to the SCUBA diving boats and you get a reduced rate if you are diving. If you are morning diving you should bring a breakfast to eat before diving, thus the microwave and frig. If diving take the SCUBA Time boat.

Room Tip: Request a refrigerator and microwave.

My boyfriend and I were booked for 3 nights and ended up checking out after 1 night. When booking we were told because he is in a wheelchair he wouldn't be able to shower ( no roll ins) this was ok, as we were told he could get in the bathroom to wash. Upon arrival he was unable to roll into the bathroom, the staff insisted that his chair was too wide, and they were grandfathered in with handicapped regulations, and that all the rooms were the same (THRESHOLD TO BATHROOM) I was very upset, he is injured Marine, A 35 yr old paralyzed veteran. His chair is smaller than the average wheel chair. It's custom made. The staff were non apologetic about their rooms situation. Being "GRAN FATHERED IN AND ALL". If your in a wheelchair beware. And if your a disabled vet they don't give a s***... Thank god we booked through a third party so we were able to get 2 nights reimbersed... All rooms should be up to handicapped codes and standard regulations... btw the room also smelled like roach spray, in Florida that is some times unavoidable..

My golfing buddy and I booked a room in the Sands a couple of months before our Feb arrival.I called on three occasions to confirm late arrival(midnight) and to assure that there were 2 double beds.We read past reviews and knew the higher rooms were in best condition and found out that our room was one that had been newly renovated . I loved the area and had been to their Tiki bar on past visits,so I was confident that it would be a great trip.
WOW....We walked in at 2pm to smoke soaked TIRED room with stained carpet and 1 bed. It did have a pullout love seat.The front desk couldnt help us as they were full. We went out hunting for other accommodations at 2:30 am and found something set up for the next day.
WE STAYED THE NIGHT IN THAT PIT ,PD FOR THE NIGHT AND CHECKED OUT AT 9AM.
HOW CAN YOU SCREW UP A RESERVATION LIKE THAT......The no care attitude is what upset me the most.......STAY AWAY

Opted on this location from internet. Clean hotel stay with accommodating staff. Only complaint is around the pool with limited lounges, (5 to say the least). Allow to sit at lounge tables away from pool, but I would not plan on laying out by the pool, unless you stake out the lounge early. Towels are small for use by the pool, also. Wifi service is best in the room if you sit close by balcony door. Views are good for the canal or the ocean. Lounge restaurant food is typical, but over priced, as are the drinks. Tourist prices. Still a good location to walk to the beach. Some entertainment on weekends only! Not much entertainment close by, so plan on driving to find it in Ft. Lauderdale from what we were told. Thin walls between the rooms in case you have late neighbors... 2:00 am tv noise

Room Tip: If you stay at this location, get a room on the South side, 7-8th floor for views. Some entertainme...

This place is old and tired. In bad need of a complete makeover. Food is mediocre, music is out of touch and the drinks are overpriced. Try Bokampers or the newly remodeled Shooters, you won't go back to the Sands.
