Reminded me of Motel 6, the bed was hard and difficult to sleep on, the upkeep is poor though the rooms were clean. When we complained about the bed they were unable to move us to another room though they did provide additional pillows. The room heater did not work so they had a portable electric heater which kept the...

Was skeptical of how this place would be being that it was fairly cheap. Got the room for under$60 and thought it would be a roach coach of a hotel. Please was very clean, comfy and quaint. The mgr at the desk was very kind, helpful and courteous. I will definitely stay here again. I had a decent nights sleep...

Stayed one night and the hotel was as I expected. The room was clean and the staff was nice. Only stayed one night so I can't comment much about the area. The breakfast was very very small, almost non-existing, but it was ok. Great hotel for the price we payed.

Management is super friendly. They installed our son's crib for us, that was really nice! Motel was packed at the end of December. We were on the second floor and unfortunately had to deal with very loud people below us. They were basically screaming until midnight. Room is very outdated and especially the bathroom. It was clean but bathtub had...

We found the place to be clean and tidy. I recon it was good value for money. The only detraction was the breakfast area. It was located in the lobby which is not the biggest. Luckly we were there at a quiet time but if it had have been busy it would have been quite congested. The owners were very...

Sandpiper Inn is a good value for the money. Very clean, comfortable bed, nice storage space in the bath area. Large room. Quiet location. Wifi very slow, bath towels thin. I would stay here again. It was very adequate for the price. Service was good. Pet friendly a real plus.

Very nice place for when traveling with your pets. Very clean and efficient! If you are not worried about having a place that looks like the Ritz and just care about the character, being clean, close to all restaurants and excursions and pet friendly; not to mention it's safe and pricing affordable. I would recommend Sandpiper.

Good location, when sitting outside the room have a great view while having breakfast at one of the lovely seats placed there by the owners. The rooms were quiet, could not hear the neighbours next door or above us. Overall, the owners did their best to make all attractive and they almost succeeded, if not for the not so great...
