This is an older hotel but clean and well-maintained. I really enjoyed the old style tile in the bathroom and vintage furnishings. The room was large with a full kitchen, living room, bathroom and bedroom with a door. Plenty of room! The office staff was very helpful and kind - even printed our boarding passes for us! It is right...

I've stayed here several times on girlfriend get-always; with my husband & for business purposes. It's always clean, despite being hard to tell because it's so old. The guests and staff are ALWAYS super. It's affordable (hard to find down here sometimes). The sunsets are stunning enough to calm your ire. And it's a heated pool! Come on. A nice...

We booked spur of the moment for the 16th-17th. The staff was wonderfully accommodating. We loved the room right on the beach and poolside. The room was very clean and ready for us when we got there. For the price and location it cant be beat. Just a perfect little hotel in a wonderful spot

It's an older hotel but very clean, quiet, and well managed. You get a great location..."on the beach", great amenities with spacious rooms, and a peaceful, affordable vacation from seniors to family's with kids.

Had it not been for my awful experience trying to get any response from a manager or owner, I would have considered this place quaint. A bit run down but clean. Problem started my first night when it turned out that the A/C in the room wasn't cooling. The front desk told me to turn it off for 20 minutes,...

We had planned for months to stay at The Sands as we love old traditional motels, however, we were very disappointed when we arrived. We arrived late and just dropped off our luggage and went to dinner. Upon returning we went in the kitchen and an large roach crawled across the floor! Ugh. We reported it the next morning and...

Our family of four stayed 4 days and we had a great time! The front desk staff was very helpful and friendly. We were able to view a room before our stay as well. We had a lower level poolside room. The room was in good condition and could see where some guests would complain but there's really nothing to...

I just returned from The Sands where I attended a family reunion. There were so many issues, it's hard to know where to begin. How about the ever changing room rate? We booked a block of rooms months in advance. The price changed repeatedly, including the day of arrival. I realize the website says "prices subject to change without notice",...

Been going here since I was a kid. Love the place, don't change a thing. The staff are the friendliest. I always get the same room each year, sure its not the most up to date place, but that is what I like about it. I will continue to recommend The Sands to everyone.
