“Great location and enjoyable stay!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 15, 2011

My boyfriend and I stayed for three nights and the overall trip was very enjoyable. When we first sat on the bed, the frame underneath did break, the microwave didn't work, and there was no remote. But they said the bed breaking wasn't our fault, we immediately got a new microwave, and they brought us a brand new remote. The staff was very friendly. We didn't use the pool, but it looked nice and clean. The room's decorations (wallpaper, bed comforter, fridge, etc.) were a little outdated, but that really didn't affect anything. The fridge is very small, but we brought a cooler so that really wasn't a problem. We stayed on the top floor and there was a nice sun deck right outside our door, which was cool. The beach and boardwalk are about a block and a half away. That was extremely convenient. We slept in until about 10 each day, but the walls must be thin or something because we were able to hear other people on our floor awake at much earlier times.
But overall, the room was a great value with friendly service and a convenient location.

We stayed here a couple of nights while on vacation. For a motel at the shore, it meets all requisite requirements: Close to the boardwalk, clean and friendly. The staff are a very nice couple who run the place in the summer. They were very helpful in recommending a place to eat. The rooms could use some updating, but we don't go to the shore for the rooms. Beds were a bit too soft for my preference, but that's just me. Our remote for our TV didn't work and they couldn't seem to get that sorted out while we were there.

My family and I decided to go to Seaside at the last minute 3pm on a Saturday - 2 hour drive. We have not been for over a year - as we have had issues with previous hotels - but we decided to go. My daughter brought a friend. As we got there - we drove around and saw many No Vacancy signs, driving up the Boulevard we saw the Sands Motel -with the gold rating. We stopped and was met by the owners - such lovely people - told them we needed a room, and gave up adjourning rooms for a great rate. Please note if you can not walk up stairs - make sure you note this before reservations - we were on the top floor - fine for us - two beds tow bathrooms, tv, fri acs. The bathrooms were clearn and the grout was white. Pool was sparkling. This is more towards the end of the boardwalk - towards Ortly beach, which was fine for us - we walked everywhere. The owners are consciencious of who is on the property - and does not allow lingerers. This was a gem for us - and we will finally get to go back to Seaside more often. Thank you Rich and SUe - I hope I got the names right.

The Sands Motel is a great hotel in Seaside Heights, the location was perfect, only 2 blocks to the beach & boardwalk. We really enjoyed the pool it was very clean & sparkling just like they advertised. The rooms are very nice and clean. Loved the deck with the tables & chairs so we could eat together, play cards & games without being in the room. They really made us feel like we were at home there. I would definitely stay they again and recommend to all. We are already planning for Labor Day weekend and next year's vacation.

The Sands Motel is a quiet, family owned hotel that sits one block from the beautiful Jersey Shore. The rooms are newley renivated and the atomosphere is very relaxing. The staff if helpful with any questions and very friendly.
