We found this hotel last year, we have been goin to Seaside for the past 6 yrs now and were excited when we found The Sands, "American owned". The old owners had rules and stuck to them. This was NOT a party hotel and we liked that! BUT now since the sudden sale of this place, parking was a pain..I know spots are limited but there should be a spot for each room, we saw cars still in spots AFTER there check out tag date and cars with NO tag. The old owners would have been on this. Also the review from "Drew B" is spot on about house keeping or lack there of..We were there 10 days and maybe 2 of those days they vaccumed the floor and NEVER vaccumed the bathroom sand. A mini shopvac would work wonders for them. I went out and bought Lysol wipes to clean the sink and toilet myself, Some times you got a bath mat to step out on and twice we got wash clothes. Basicly our beds were just made. That is when/if they did the room b4 we got back from the beach (3/4pm). I was worried about this vac I booked in early june when I noticed there website was redone..I sent and email and received a confusing call from them about and hour later saying basicly they had no clue when my ressie was. Thankfuly I had the conformation sheet and sent them a copy but they also had no clue what I paid or was due..Check in was smooth and they seemed nice albeit unorganized, there was a very nice lady whom seemed maybe an asst manager. I dont know, I have a feelin they are just in it for the money and see no improvments coming nor rules inforced. Im sad cuz I really liked the room and location to beach. Im not sure I will go back again. I may for the price just find a house to rent instead next year. Oh and we own a pool and while we stayed here we could see it turning green from lack of cholrine and shock, Really pool person or not..at nite pour a bag of shock n swim in and your good by morning. Im also not sure if there other hotel has access to the pool or not but that concerned me also. Good luck if you go..Its not all that bad but just be aware..
