“Oceanview Review”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 15, 2011

Pros: Love this hotel, nice private beach. Each room has a view of the ocean. Beds are comfy, not great but sleepable. Rooms are clean, staff is nice!

Cons: No elevator and 3 floors, isn't so much fun with luggage. Efficiency rooms could have a smidge more dishes, plates, pots, pans and serving bowls.

All around great place to stay for a getaway with friends!

4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 15, 2011

My sister and i are "seniors" who stayed for a 3 day weekend and found the accommodations to be just what we were looking for -- the room was clean, everything in working order. There were families with young children, 5 young girls (20's) staying next door to us and 2 young men on the other side. There was never any problem with noise and as a matter of fact we enjoyed their company on the balcony in the evening. Management was very watchful regarding only people who stayed there using the private beach and people on either side of our beach were packed in like sardines - we had plenty of space - we were there during that July 100+ weekend!!

We had smokers that took over the deck in front of our room so we couldn't open our door and sit on the deck outside our room. If you want to be stuck in a little room without having to open your door to enjoy the ocean view or smell the sea air go ahead and stay here I will not be coming back

The Sandy Shore Motel is located on Misquamicut Beach and there are restaurants and lounge facilities in the immediate area. This guest stayed with us during a very busy and active July 4th weekend. One of our guest rooms had daytime guests that stayed on our deck and had a cook out and enjoying the holiday weekend. Upon my arrival to the property in the early morning I recognized unregistered guests on the property and immediately requested them to discontinue their activities. I apologized for the overnight inconvenience and offered our guest a gift certificate for a future stay. Our property does not permit underage drinking. Our security staff is on the property during the evening and into the early morning as well. I took immediate action to correct the situation that caused the inconvenience of our guest. It is unfortunate that the actions of a few guests ruined the experience of our traveler. A gift certificate for a future stay was issued to our traveler and we look forward to their return.

During the weekend The Sandy Shore Motel did have guests who where under the age of 21 on the property. The Sandy Shore has a "Zero Tolerance" for underage drinking and it is enforced by our Management and Security Staff that is on the property. The Sandy Shore welcomes all guests to our property and staff is scheduled and policies are enforced for all guests accordingly.
I personally spoke with all guests and respectfully addressed all issues and concerns while our guests where present on the property. Our Management and staff strive to make a pleasant experience for all guests on our property and cannot control the behavior of all of our guests but can address issues as they arise.

I stayed here with a group of friends to get away from it all. We came out of season, and were glad we did! The hotel was quaint, but our rooms were clean, and the staff was very friendly. We were sitting on the large shared balcony enjoying a late afternoon cigar when we were approached by the owner, who also appearently owns a cigar company. He gave us some of his cigars, which were quite good. The location is perfect, with two great bars within walking distance, and every room has a view of the water. Will be back, for sure! It's also a short drive to the CT casinos, which was nice.

The Sandy Shore Motel currently has a new Guest Relations Manager and we are making improvements to our property in a response to all of your comments. New and exciting changes are coming! Fresh layers of paint are being added both to the interior of the rooms and the exterior of the property. Our rooms are receiving a great amount of attention and detail to offer you a pleasant guest experience. The temperatures will soon be pleasant and the ocean breeze awaits you on our private beach.
The staff is getting geared up and excited to offer you a great family stay on Sunny Misquamicut Beach!
