This was a great place to stay. It is close to shops, the beach, the zoo, etc. The pool looked very nice even though we did not swim and the gentleman at the front desk gave us a great rate and was very nice. The only downfall was that the rooms were a little dated, they could use some upgrades but still comfortable.

We picked this hotel due to it's central location to the town and the beach but got a pleasent surprise in the million dollar view of the ocean from our balcony and the heated pool. On top of that the staff is courteous and friendly. We would definitely stay here again.

Location was the best for being close to things in town. Parking was a little difficult. Some other guests decided to take some of my daughter's space outside her room, but we took care of that. Was great for walking to many places in town and right across from Short Sands Beach was wonderful.

Check in was a breeze and the employee was very nice. Location was awesome! The room was tidy, had what was needed, enough towels, soap, extra pillows but there was dust hanging from the ceiling over the bed, a quick sweep with the vacuum would remedy that. The room is dated and the sink backs up and the bed was a little too mushy but we slept ok. The Sands is located right across from the beach and really close to restaurants and shopping. The Sands has a nice heated pool with plenty of seating. The room also had a refrigerator, nice extra. Overall, I would stay here again but would like to see some updates.
