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. The maintenance... More

Motel staff was very helpful and friendly. Room was pretty clean but terribly outdated and in desperate need of some repairs. AC ran all day and room was still hot in the evening, even in mid September. It was ok for a place to sleep and shower but I wouldn't stay there again. Stayed in room 214.

If you are looking for an acceptable motel with the best location and lowest price, this is it. The motel is just a block from the middle of the boardwalk. Let's not kid ourselves, it's not a Hilton, but it's clean and perfect for people that just need a decent place to sleep while spending all day at the beach.... More

You can't beat the location at one block off the middle of the boardwalk. The room itself was fair for the two nights we stayed. The beds aren't comfortable. The TV is only really visible from one bed. The staff was nice, and they repaired our door quickly after we got locked in our room! The air conditioning was cold... More

Well I should have listened to the reviews but we booked late and there wasn't much available close to the boardwalk without spending over $300/night. So we took a chance.....shower had mold and mildew in the outdated bathroom and it didn't drain well so you stand in an inch of water while trying to get "clean" , quickest shower I... More

only stayed for an over night vacaton. The room was clean. The decor was a bit dated, but for an over night visit and only a block away from the boardwalk, who cares. The women at the front desk were very nice.
