We stayed here because we thought it was cheap and only a couple miles from the beach. The workers were so rude when we first arrived, the rooms were gross, there was beetles crawling all over, it smelled awful, and there was no bathtub. Also friends came to the beach to visit so we had them back to the motel...

Booked a room online for a one night stay. I have a medical condition that is magnified by the presence of mold. As soon as I walked into our room, my condition worsened. I am allergic to mold. Seems they just painted over it instead of treating it. Management refused to return my $120. Poor business ethics. Do yourself a...

My family and I (spouse and infant daughter) were looking for an inexpensive place to stay so we could visit a hospitalized relative. We needed something basic, as we didn't have a lot of $$ for the last-minute trip but weren't willing to compromise on cleanliness. We reserved here through their website, and couldn't have been happier. This is an...

we were lucky because we had a heavily scented candle with us to mask the musky odor of the room.

We greatly enjoyed our stay. We stay for a week every August. It's quiet, clean, very comforable. I recommend Sand Dollar to my friends and co-workers.

I called immediately upon recognition of my error and was told to speak to the owner in an hour. I called back and not only did I not get a refund,...

First off, we should have known not to bother coming to the Sand Dollar after reading the other reviews... but my friends and I wanted to enjoy a fun, inexpensive vacation and thought this motel was a deal for the location. However, the second you roll up to park you can tell how shabby this place is. Clearly it is...

I stayed at this motel for 2 nights with my wife, sister in law and boyfriend. We had a standard double bed motel room for $380.00. First of all, they told us on the phone that the room woud be $284.00 and when we arrived they jacked up the price to $380.00. Second of all, what they call the continental...

“The onlly thing we did not like was that there was not wifi in our room. Rooms were quiet at night although the hotel completely booked.... We enjoyed. Our son came with his wife and stayed at the same hotel and they liked too.”
