This apartment/hotel was built in 1947. It still looks like 1947, and there was a definite moldy smell. Those things aside, it had fresh paint, and a certain charm. It reminded me of my Aunt's house when I was a kid. People were super friendly, and the guests used the outdoor spaces, instead of being holed up inside. We had...

My family stayed at The Sands for 4 days in room 124. I loved the vintage appeal of the place. It was right on the beach, and my kids loved being able to head to the beach anytime we felt like it. The beach is beautiful and right there! If is certainly a perfect location. The rates are reasonable and...

You know what they say....location, location, location. And this place is the best. It's right on the beach and has a beautiful view. The hotel itself is OK. There were only a few things that were disappointing but there were plenty that was good. First the good: We stayed in room 114. It's the last room closest to the beach...

I have stayed at the Sands several times in the past and was quite happy with the place. Reasonable prices, relatively clean and nice people who work there. In particular is Harry who works the front desk and is always ready to help. Oh yes, Its a BEAUTIFUL spot on the Beach. Joyce Librant

We were in room 115 right at the pool. Perfect spot. If you have kids and plan to spend time at the pool make sure to get a poolside room. The room itself was OK. The kitchen had plates, bowls, toaster, microwave, stove a a full size fridge (they will supply you with dish clothes and towels if you request...

First of all, this is a fantastic location. It's "on" the beach (but don't forget that the stretch of beach to the water is about half a football field). The pool area is really nice. The rooms themselves are quite dated. Kind of funny and charming actually. The corner rooms (201 and 207) are HUGE. They have 2 double beds,...

My family has been coming to the Sands for the last 50 years. It is clean, basic and right on the beach. The pool is great and well maintained. This is not a romantic honeymoon hotel. We all love it and would hate to see it go as it is the last of the generation of true beach motels.

rooms are very outdated although clean.Appliances need replacing.The microwave had the wrong turntable plate installed so it wont not rotate. The toaster did not work at all and the coffee pot worked but took almost an hour to brew one pot. The rooms were clean but the sheets on the beds would not stay on(wrong size). The bathroom fixtures needed...

We just spent a lovely weekend at The Sands, the room was spacious, the staff friendly and we decided right then and there to move our family reunion to this charming place! We look forward to seeing everyone in July at the Censullo family reunion under the breezeway! Thank you Patty and Randy for booking all 10 rooms for us.

If you have to save money, this place is ok. We stayed in an end room on the second floor overlooking the shuffle-boards and the awesome beach. Beautiful views of the gulf! The people are very friendly and helpful. The pool is awesome. It was very clean, and the water was at a perfect temperature. People were grilling every evening,...
