I booked this place with not much research because it was a last minute get away. Big mistake! (should have known because they didnt even have a portable crib for our 10month old) We got to our room and there was no toilet paper (not even the empty roll) so I go down to the office (cause there's no phone in the room) and the staff do not even apologize. I return and then notice there's no wash cloths or hand towels. The floor didn't look vacuumed and the bed made my husband's and my body hurt so bad that we would have probably had a better night sleeping in our car! The second day we come back to the room, they didnt take our towels off the floor, didnt give us back the same number of towels (one wash cloth and towel) and the same dirt and debris was on the floor so obviously they didnt vacuum! and to add, the wifi didn't work!
We were supposed to stay 3 nights but the second night there was such a rediculous party with screaming girls, marijuana and underage drinking, that my husband went out to tell them to be quiet and go to the office to complain. After hours of the cameras watching, nothing was done until my husband went down. That is finally when the 6 police cars and ambulance showed and were there for an hour and a half! Then when they were gone the party started again and nothing else was done (probably why there's no phones in the room) I went out to yell at them too...what happened to security?
I complained and tol them i would not be staying another night endangering my son with pot smoke. We went right across the street. They had MUCH better accommodations! Better pool, kiddie pool, sand box, game room, free breakfast, portable cribs, comfy beds, in room phones, a vacuumed floor, etc.....stay at this motel, not the Sands motel!!!!!!!
