This was a really awesome place. It was so quaint and affordable, we just loved it. The people were very friendly, the room was clean and SOOO close to the water. We sat out and watched a sunset exactly like in the photo on their website. The location was perfect....close to lots of restaurants. We walked to Big Eddy's for... More

Don't stay here. Owners are nice but room had spiders in every corner. Thank you Giddeons for the spider killer. Owners please fog the rooms, do some maintenance and you can charge much more than $110 per night.

This review is of the Parkgate Motel, which is one of the three Sands Beach Motels within a block or so of each other. When I made the reservation the man on the phone was very friendly and told me how nice the rooms were and that I had a great view of the lake. When my friend and I... More

This place has seen its age. Its dark and run down. You may find a great price here but not worth it. There are other places near by to stay at. The rooms are small and dirty. It needs a whole new overhall done.

There is plenty to complain about with this motel, but it is GOTL. If you are looking for a cheap place to sleep that is on the beach and the strip, this could be your place. Debbie has checked us in the past few years and is friendly and easy going. She is willing to assist you with any questions... More

Would NEVER RECOMMAND to anyone!!!!!! Not even the dog!!!! The rooms are out of date and I think they furnished it from a thirft store or Good Will. It had a very musty odor to it and the beds we're terrible to sleep on ,if you could sleep at all. The pool outside our cottage wasn't very clean either.

Rooms were dirty. We weren't able to open the windows. I have nothing against motorcycles, but, they were parked outside our door at all times..Blankets looked like the weren't washed for 15 years, falling apart. No service. Had to ask for towels, only to find the office person drinking with some bikers. I could go on and on...The room reminded... More

Was barely worth staying...but we did. The sheets were clean and the bathroom was passable. The location, easy walk to lots of restaurants and entertainment, and the view with the sound of the surf were the ONLY redeeming features.
