Room was Ok and relatively clean. Had easy beach access right out back slider and convenient dog areas. Slider door was extremely hard to open and close. A little over priced probably due to Seahawk week end with many product booths, food trucks and Seahawk moms etc. (No Seahawk players). Employees were nice and friendly. Had full kitchen. Bring hair...

Every time we stay here we enjoy it. May not be upscale hotel, but the rooms are larger then most other hotels. The staff are friendly and very helpful. Continental breakfast is good. If you stay in a junior suite on the second floor the view is pretty good.

OK, so the Sands is an older property. And with that, there are some things that are beyond the owners control (thin walls, outdated architecture, rising heat on upper floors). But that said, the owners have gone out of their way to make the Sands a very comfortable, fun, and unique place to stay. The rooms (at least the one...

Stay here as your last option! Oldest motel in Ocean Shores. Not cheap either. My junior suite was 140/night. I think It used to be 2 or 3 different motels that they made into 1 "resort". I stayed in the 2-story building. I've never stayed here before so I thought I would try it because they accept pets, but I...

Went with family members we had at least 6 different rooms some of the heaters worked, and like ours turned it passed 80 and the room was freezing all night. Over heard a couple had to borrow a heater from the office to stay warm for The night. The continental breakfast was in the check in office which is not...

I did not stay here. I bought gift certificates for my adult children for here. I chose this place because of good location, indoor and outdoor pool and accepts pets. The gift certificate came with stipulations like extra money if stay on weekends, which I told the kids. But when it came to using them, they could not stay on...

I have to admit that I was hesitant about staying here after reading the reviews, however, I took a chance & was pleased. I requested the 3rd floor, for the view. I also asked about Wi-Fi, it is only available in the lobby, not a big deal, I came here to disconnect & enjoy the water view. My room was...

Good view of ocean though:) the management was good about putting us in another room that had working phone and a bathroom...

They had enough room for our family of 6, the rooms were clean, a bit dated. but when you have 2 small kids that's just fine because they weren't going to hurt anything! There only drawback was there was no AC, but they did have a fan that when placed in a good location and you opened up the back...
