My kids and I have returned for our 3rd visit last week and we had a terrific time. We used to stay at the Gitchee Gummee down the road before they changed names. Then I looked at a few rooms at the Sands and found my new place in Ocean Shores. Good price + good view + pools & game... More

Ok where to start. Me and my family, 6 adults and 3 kids, had planned a fun July 4th weekend stay in Ocean Shores since last year of 2009. None of us had ever stayed at the Sands. We just heard about it from other family members. Not necessarily good things, but that they had an ok experience. But let... More

My family stayed here for 4th of July for 2 nights and stayed in one of their suites. 2 rooms (side by side) down the hall from us got robbed on our first night while our car, which was parked infront...

We try to get away at least once a month. The Sands is one of our favorite places to stay. Once we watched whales from our room, many beautiful sunsets too. The pools and hot tubs are nice. I have breakfast and check my email in the morning. It is easy to walk the dog. We enjoy watching the many... More

I stayed at the Sands prior to my May 2010 visit and was not going to stay there again, I am so glad I gave them another chance, I travel with my pet springer spaniel and hotels/motels are limited, This time my room was spotless, (totally remodeled in the last 3 years) service was terrific, pools/hot tubs clean and refreshing...

I just got off the phone with a woman named Roberta, who claimed to be the General Manager. Over the past year, between myself, family and business associates I have spent in the area of $1000. True it is old and not well kept, but the price is right and the service was always reliable. I called last tuesday and... More

Over the past 5 years I have gone to Ocean 5 times. Everytime I stay at The Sands. I check prices of other hotels. But everytime the manager Roberta offers us such a good deal we simply can not pass it up. We know the rooms are clean, the beds are comfortable and the staff is always friendly. The indoor... More

We keep coming back to the Sands because they treat us like family. My boyfriend and I have stayed here about 6 times in the past year & a half. We prefer an ocean-view smoking king with a kitchenette, and we've gotten it for as little as $59/night (winter weekend). We usually stay two nights... go out on the town... More
