3 of 5 stars Reviewed yesterday NEW

An older motel, very clean and well kept. Had two young children with two adults in room and it worked very well. Close to boardwalk and two restaurants. Plenty of towels. No coffee pot, but we took our own.

Check in was easy and Dawn was very friendly and helpful! Location is amazing! Room was clean and slept all 6 of us comfortably. The money we saved staying here allowed us a lot more money to have fun. Only negatives were there was no pool(would have been nice since the ocean was so rough during our stay) and the... More

We left early because the place was so filthy and disgusting. I would NEVER go back there! The staff was nice enough but the place needs to be condemned. The pictures below are just a few of the highlights. The location was good but still does not justify the conditions at the motel.

The staff was extremely nice! Dawn is really great! The place was nice and the location was perfect for getting to the boardwalk and beach. There's a nice little restaurant next to the motel. We really had a great time.

Just stayed here at Coral Sands 7-13-2016 - 7-15-2016. This wasn't our first stay here. We always enjoy the convenience to the beach, boardwalk and downtown. If you looking for a 5 star luxury hotel, this isn't it, but personally I would rather spend my money on the boardwalk with the grand kids then on a room room you don't... More

My girlfriend and I just stayed here for four days and had a great experience. The beds were a little hard but we slept great on them. It's only a block away from the beach and they also have a parking lot around the corner if you stay for multiple days where u can leave your vehicle for free. There's... More

Coral Sands is always the first place I call when I go to O.C. The room was clean when we arrived and was spotless after our long day on the beach, which is only one block away. The outside shower was great to wash the beach from our feet before going to our room. The management made my daughter and... More

Place is an absolute dump. Beds are uncomfortable it felt like sleeping on a rock, rooms AC only went up to 75 degrees. The TV was only visible from one bed and the sheets and linens had stains on them. Manager was OK however the maintenance guy is a complete drunk and starts problems with the hotel guests.
