“Stayed again at Sands , first time in winter”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 19, 2014

Did an impromptu winter weekend visit to Rehobeth. Stayed at Sands many times before so this was the first place we checked out for availability and rates. Got a room for $118.00 a night. Called another hotel that I had stayed at before and their room was $150 a night and no balcony ,no view of water and not as nice of a location. The room we got at Sands was a room we never stayed in before. Room was on the street side above parking. Had nice balcony and the room was beautiful. it was renovated last year I was told. Bed's were comfortable and the sitting room was very nice. Desk person Nina was very friendly and Donna the new front desk manager introduced herself to me today and I thought that was very nice.
They are re doing the pool area ,I am sure it will be gorgeous.
Found that the place ran as effectivaly in the winter as it does when I am there in the summer.

Room Tip: To be honest my favorite room's now at this Hotel are the rooms on the side that face the pink h...

If you want to be right on the boardwalk, this place does the trick. It's a bit outdated, and average in most ways. It's clean. staff were helpful, if not especially friendly. Don't expect posh, and you'll probably be happy here.

Clean rooms and friendly service are hard to beat! As you indicated, our staff provides that and we’ve also got an awesome location on the beach and boardwalk in the heart of Rehoboth Beach. We continue to upgrade and enhance our property, as evidenced by new wallpaper and carpeting and more that is regularly introduced to the property. We are also introducing a new line of preferred toiletries in 2014, too!
Our location is just one hallmark of our landmark hotel! Keep an eye on our Facebook page or visit regularly to see the upgrades we have in store for guests!

For the second year I've visited the Atlantic Sands for a conference. Unfortunately, it is after the season so one doesn't get a great feel of the town as the streets kinds get rolled up after Labor Day. As for the hotel, this year we stayed in a suite on the second floor that was very nice ad much better than what we had last year. We had a room with a balcony and a nice view of the ocean. Nothing over the top, but well maintained. If they got beat up by Sandy I couldn't tell as everything seemed well maintained. Like many hotels, around 6-7 a.m. You can start hearing people stir by slamming doors, toilets flushing and showers running. Not much can be done about that. Last year we requested a suite, but did not get it. We requested at least to be moved into rooms next to one another and we were accommodated. We were on the first floor facing the ocean.

We’re glad you enjoyed your room and stay during the conference you attended here at the Atlantic Sands Hotel! And we certainly hope you’ll be able to visit us again during beach season!
The Town of Rehoboth has many things to do and see during the off season and some of our guests actually prefer this time of year to the bustling summer months. We try to help guests enjoy our hotel and the special things about Rehoboth at any time of year and your review gives us even more incentive to inform our guests of what is available and fun to do and see at this time of year. Please visit again, whenever you are able!

We recently had to stay in a hotel due to our rental having water issues. The hotel staff was incredible, especially front desk girls. We stayed on 4th floor with view of ocean in a very clean and comfortable room. We cannot say enough about the staff at this hotel - they are professional, friendly and very accommodating via phone and in person. We would highly recommend this hotel and would definitely stay here again.

Room Tip: Talk to the front desk about your desires and they will book you accordingly.. Oceanview are best.

My bf took me to Rehobeth for the weekend for my birthday and we stayed at the Atlantic Sands Hotel. We had a beach front suite with two big sliding glass doors over looking the ocean. The view was perfect. The room was large and very clean.
Would definitely book this room again.

Great View from our room, pricey for off season, room needed repairs and updated . Lamp broken-left hanging...we unplugged it !, ac made so much noise it woke us up every time the compressor cut on..we told the clerk ...she offered--SORRY..... Lamp shades had holes in them, wall paper in bath room leaves much to be desired-poor workmanship but the room was clean and the room spacious. We liked being able to walk everywhere in town, the town was still "alive" in late Oct.not like Ocean City (dead). On the down side the hotel is a MAZE once you get inside...easy to loose your way to your room or find an elevator to get to the lobby.i

Room Tip: Cut the AC on first, check all the lights ....ask for a MAP TO FIND YOUR ROOM !

Pros: It's in a great location, has on site parking and while dated the room was comfortable.

Cons: I've stayed in enough of these mid-tier, beach front hotels to expect some wear and tear but some things don't fly with me. At the top of my list would be having a clean bathroom. As such I was put off by the copious amount of mildew around the tub/shower enclosure and the brown "caulk" ring around the bottom of the toilet. The other thing I found annoying, especially for a room in this price range, was that every time we opened or closed the curtains pieces of the ceiling ended up on the floor.

This wasn't our first stay with Atlantic Sands but definitely our last until they do some renovations.
