What a pleasant surprise to find a super clean, well decorted, cute-as-a-button, one bedroom with full kitchen 1/2 block off the beach! I was traveling alone and stayed 5 nights at this motel because I wanted a really economical stay within walking distance to the beach. Front desk (Lindsey) was more than accommodating when my Hotels.com reservation was never communicated to them (Hotels.com verified the problems on their end.) Quiet, safe area. I was in unit 2E, second floor. There was an outside pool I never used (not heated). Coin laundry on main level. Ample linens and supplies that you could replace with the day-time attendant any time. Literally walk across a parking lot to the beach, or 3 blocks to Main Street in North Myrtle where there about 4-5 restaurants and a couple bars, including Fat Haroldt's famous for Shag Music and dancing. Also some beach stores. I would stay here again in a heartbeat if I wanted to be in North Myrtle Beach. Not much going on there, however. Good beach bike rental place where I rented a bike for two hours--rode on the beach to the pier, had a drink, and rode back. Would definitely not recommend The Sands if you have kids--space is too confining. Have to check in a couple miles North at the Peppertree--no problem. Includes free Wi-Fi. Large balcony overlooks Ocean Dr. Tables with Umbrellas and smoking allowed only there. You won't be disappointed with this stay.
