Horrible experience. We tried to contact management, several times, to express our concerns, however they did call back. We checked in on Sunday, 11/20/16. Shortly after checking in, my daughter went to use the bathroom and discovered it was not very clean, to include hair in and on the toilet. At this time, we were exhausted and did not make...

We stayed at the White Sands with our children for a mini getaway during the NJ teacher's convention. The hotel was really nice, and the kids loved the indoor heated pool! It was convenient to everything, and we will definitely be back.

If you like the 70's, this is your place. Nothing has changed since then. Rooms have not been updated for that long. Toilet ran all night, had to scream to talk above the AC noise and most of the sand from the beach was all over our room. We even had to walk across the street just to get ice....

Unusually warm weather had me running down to the shore for one of the last beach days of the year. I booked an oceanfront room with a balcony that had the best views of the ocean, the rising moon and the most beautiful sunrise. The room itself was great! king bedroom plus another small room with a sofa and tv...

We had our high school reunion here. The hotelis on the beach, or at least some of it is. The rooms in the main building were spacious and reasonably well furnished. the bed was more comfortable than I feared. The rooms in the ocean front buildings were quite small. We did think it unusual that the rooms had no hand...

We visited the white sands the week of July 4th, and we were very pleased with the hotel. Our room was a two bedroom room with a little backyard, it looks like it hasn't been renovated in a long time but it was comfortable. The hotel has two outdoor pools, one indoor pool and private beach. Service at the restaurants...

We stayed for 1 night in September while visiting friends. For a 1 night stay, it was fine. The room was clean, which was all I was looking for. We literally just laid our heads down for the night and left the next morning. I will say that the hotel rooms do not look like anything posted on the website....

My wife, son and I visited White Sands in August for an end of summer vacation. The room had a beautiful view of the water, room 210, if you can request it I strongly advise it, best view from the hotel. The room itself is a little dated but nice and clean. The pools are nice but get out early...

OK- on basically all sites this "motel" not a resort at all keeps coming up high on the "Best Of" lists and PLEASE do not pay attention to these false and misleading comments and pictures.

I stayed at this hotel for 3 nights. Check-in was easy. I arrived early, and My room was ready. I stayed in the building by the beach and pool. Easy access to the beach. Room was clean. Pools were also clean. Had breakfast using a $10 voucher- a nice extra. Convenient to shopping and restaurants. Would definitely stay here again.
