“Love The White Sands”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 16, 2013

We have stayed at the White Sands for 13 yrs. Then Sandy hit last year. My children WHERE crying and so upset that THEIR White sands was destroyed. My daughter now 16 and son now 9 were so happy to be able to stay again this year. (Our 15th summer). Unbelievable to see people complain about the construction and what a bother it was to them. We were so happy to be there and be apart of our White Sands being rebuilt! We too were there in Aug. 2013, yes there was truck noise but who could complain? God bless them for rebuilding and keeping the Shore alive!!!!!!!


We will always recommend this wonderful family hotel. Clean, fun and close to everything.

My sincere gratitude.......L. Dox

We stayed at the White Sands for a long weekend with my family. My husband and I stayed in room 405 with our 4 young children my parents stayed in room 401, and my sister and her partner stayed in the 100 building. The 400 building was great! Our room was on the first floor, and literally a few feet away from the newly re-done pool. The room had a front room with 2 queen beds and a back room with a king. Our room was very clean with the exception of the tile floors that were sandy all the time. The cleaning staff was wonderful and the room smelled like bleach and was wonderfully maintained. We had more than enough room for our 1,3,6,and 8 year old. The room had a small fridge, microwave, iron, and blow dryer. The bathroom was small but very clean. My parents room was also very clean and spacious, however, they were next door to some kind of utility room, and a boiler, or some machinery came on periodically throughout the night. I did not visit the 100 building. The pool was great for little kids with several tiered steps and a shallow end that was 1ft - 3ft. The hotel supplies you with beach towels and room towels. The staff at the White Sands was wonderful. They were beyond helpful. Everyone I spoke to was willing to go the extra mile to be accommodating, whether it be to get us more beach towels, or have ice brought to my parents' room. We stopped into the lobby to get restaurant recommendations and the man behind the desk not only suggested a couple family friendly places to dine, but also took out a map and drew the route I should take to get there. The White Sands is close enough to Jenkinson's that we could walk to the boardwalk or aquarium, but far enough away that there was more privacy than some of the other hotels. We went in what is considered the "off season" and I believe we got a very good value for the price. In the summer months when the price almost doubles I probably would not feel as satisfied. I would definitely go back this time next year. For the price and proximity to the ocean, we can probably not do any better.

Room Tip: If you are traveling with little kids, room 405 is great. The back room has a king size bed and the...

We took a spur of the moment trip to the beach. We stayed in the "400 buidling" which was undergoing construstion. No big deal, they told us about it when I called and again when we checked in. The room was nice and spacious. Clean. The best part of the hotel was its location to the beach. We were staying in an end room, so we walked out the door, through the pool, and we were on the beach. The pool area was nice and clean, nothing special. The indoor pool area was nice as well. Pool, hot tub, steam room (awesome for the pours!!) and sauna. Only issue was that the chlorine was STRONG!!. There wasn't much circulation in their.

We didn't eat on property. But the menu looked comparable to local restaurants.

Didn't encounter any staff that wow'd us. Overall it was a fine hotel one night. Would probably go back again.

We stayed for two nights in hotel section, Sunday through Tuesday. Check in was effortless and friendly. Oceanfront room was spacious and immaculate. Love their new pool (clean) on oceanfront, resort side. Small area for kiddies in pool. We used indoor pool as well. Entrance to beach from pool. We had breakfast in waffles restaurant on site. Prices were reasonable. Both egg dish and waffles were fine. No complaints about service or food. This is my third and best visit. They are still doing some finishing construction on resort side. ( landscaping on hotel side is very well done). Look forward to my next visit. You can't beat location and amenities.

It would be hard pressed to call this a resort, more like a typical jersey motel - charging top dollar for the use of the word "Resort". We were not warned that there was still a lot of construction going on after Sandy. If told, it would not have changed our trip - it would have been nice to be warned instead of being woken at 8am to the sounds of saws, as well as be told what things were still "closed". Would be cheaper to rent a house (and we were there only 4 nights). If you do go here "ask questions" so you are not as disappointed as we were.

I love Point Pleasant and decided to try this hotel for the first time. Everyone was very nice during our stay. Our room was clean and comfortable. The hotel had its own private beach which we enjoyed. The pools were great.

The reason why I gave it 4 stars was the waffle house restaurant service wasn't great. We asked the waiter for milk for the coffee, the milk never arrived. We asked for extra napkins, the napkins never arrived. Then to actually pay for the breakfast took forever. They kept walking past us and not picking up the credit card for payment. It was pretty annoying.

Our stay overall was great though. The hotel was a short walking distance to the boardwalk and amusements which was convenient.
