I have stayed at the Sands for the past 9 years, every March we go. I LOVE the sands. The value for your dollar is worth it. They have a pool for my kids and I to play in. The "continental" breakfast leaves something to be desired, and definatly bring your own water, or buy a big jug of it... More

Great Service, great time. The kids loved the beach, the pool, the room. We cooked a full dinner for the family in our room and then lit a fire and watched a movie. Everything is in walking distance and the staff is very friendly and easy going. Our family had a great vacation here. It's not the posh resort on... More

We have stayed at the Sands Resort two years in a row and we look forward to our stay again next year. It is the Beach for goodness sakes and it is reasonable and convenient and they take pets. It has a relaxed atmosphere and very friendly staff. Where else can you go for all this and with your pets... More

Every Year for 15 years we have been comming to the sands the best rooms are the ones surrounding the outdoor pool... Great views and Great family fun. We have tried other hotels and yes they are much more decorative but who wants to pay for decorations? not me... 2 pools 2 hot-tubs game room and close to the beach..

If you're looking for luxury, keep looking. But if you want clean, comfortable, close to everything, views of the ocean, and friendly staff, this is your place. This is our second time staying in one of the kitchenette + king bed rooms, and we lucked out with a third floor room which had wonderful ocean views. My daughter loves the... More

My husband & I went for an overnighter just for fun. After driving up to Pacific, Moclips & deciding NOT to pay $100 a night for a cold, antiseptic room with no TV (sorry, we need one), we ended up at The Sands. From the outside it looks pretty so-so, but I was pleasantly surprised by our room. The sign... More
