“Pick Condo Over Hotel”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 7, 2013

Condos are SO much better than the hotel section. We were not pleased with out 2 bed hotel room. Needed updating & repairs. We transferred to a 2 bedroom condo & loved it!!
Great view of the ocean. Quiet. Clean. Price was reasonable, but we were there in October 2011.
This property doesn't have the greatest parking.

Although we had been pleased with our stays in the past we were very unsatisfied with this stay. Problems such as housekeeping not cleaning the room, remodeling that we weren't aware of until we checked in (and we had called 2 times before our arrival), some kind of sewage issue that left an awful lingering odor the entire day as well as stopped up the toilet which took 5 hours to get a plunger for! Beds were EXTREMELY uncomfortable - pools weren't clean until the last day we were there and the hot tubs weren't working in either building the last day and night we were there and when they were the temperature in the hot tub was probably less than 95 degrees which made it pretty chilly with the cool breeze that was blowing. The morning of our check out we were brought to the door at 8:45 am by the maid wanting to clean our room! When She was told that we were trying to get packed up to check out she sat in the floor by her cart outside our door until we left! Very unprofessional especially when check-out is at 11 am!

We stayed here for 4 nights with other family who had ocean view two bedroom condos. We had a king oceanfront that was clean and the bed was exceptionally comfortable. Worth the extra money to get oceanfront for your morning coffee and evening drink. Full kitchen with dishwasher and laundry facilities. Great value for the cost. We will be back next year!

Room Tip: A higher floor gets a better view oceanfront

I'm currently staying at the Holiday Sands South Hotel for the 2nd time in two years.
The location is perfect--right on the strip which is very close to Highway 17 that leads to the malls/theatre/attractions. You can also head right out the front door and straight up Ocean Blvd to get to the boardwalk, Skyride, Ripley's and all the tourist stores downtown.
If peace and quiet is what you are after--get an ocean front room and you will never hear the activity/noise from the street. All you will hear is the waves of the ocean which is MY books is the best lullaby there is!
We have a room with two bedrooms and three queen beds, one bathroom, kitchen with fridge, stove, sink, microwave. Basic utensils are supplied, dishes (plates, bowls), drinking glasses and some pots for cooking (no frying pan so if grilled cheese is a staple for you bring a frying pan).
In this room we have 2 full sized dressers, two night tables, two full sized closets, one small dining table and another dinner table that would seat six. Each room has their private balcony with two lawn chairs and a small table. The lawn chairs are VERY old so you might want to consider bringing your own.
The hotel has a cafe right on site for breakfast and light lunches and you are very close to a ton of restaurants for any kind of dinner you desire.
Before you book a lot of attractions on-line wait until you get here. The hotel lobby is FULL of coupons/discounts for every restaurant, attraction, show you could want to go to!
I have found the staff to be courteous and professional--no issues.
Cleaning is adequate--we had to ask for more toilet paper, tissues and towels as none were left after cleaning...perhaps just an oversight.
There are two outdoor pools, two indoor, two hot tubs, one lazy river and two small wading pools for kids. Very family oriented (pool towels are supplied so you don't have to bring them). As well in both pool areas there are lounge desk chairs for sunning and then out on the grass before you get to the beach you will find more lounge chairs. (No chairs on the beach so if you need/want a chair bring a lounger from home).

All in all I think this is an excellent vacation spot. There's lots of free parking, kitchens in the units where you can do your own cooking...so if you're looking to stay on a budget so you can spend your money on memories and adventure this is the place.
We will be back for sure.

We stay here almost everytime we come down. The place is clean. The pools and spa area are nice. Always a refrigerator in the room. Its just a clean older hotel. Bottom line if your expecting a 4 star resort look elsewhere. If you want a nice clean room on the ocean with a pool you will be happy. Its always a great value to stay here.

Read mixed reviews before staying here...very skeptical about it initially. It decent. We stayed in a 2 bedroom condo with ocean view. Huge balcony, 2 bathrooms, washer/dryer, kitchen with dishes, flay screen TV in living room area. The beds were not comfortable. The lazy river, hot tub, and kid super shallow pool and pool located on the ground floor are really nice and convenient. The beach in this area is pretty crowded but people were friendly. Overall, I enjoyed my trip. We ended up booking an extra night and paying for one night separately made me realize what a bargain we got for an entire week.
