Away from the crowd! Situated on Coastal Highway, Ocean Sands is a smaller two story motel with pool and doggie friendly too! Dogs allowed on the beach right across the street, but must be on a leash or you will be fined! Small patios off each room as well....

Even though its not a 5 star hotel, we were definitely treated like we were staying in one. Not only is it in a great location to go to the beach, but the staffing is truly amazing. Spencer was awesome, courteous & also gave us wonderful recommendations. We will be staying here again in the future and recommend it.

Visited this motel for a one-night stay and loved it so much we are already planning a return trip. The room we had was clean, quiet, and tastefully decorated. Beds were excellent. This hotel sits across the street from the ocean so it was very convenient to go to the beach. They also have a swimming pool. The staff will...

We stayed here they are pet friendly, all the pet friendly rooms are on the first floor, I would recommend a room facing the pool and not the beach as we heard traffic all night long through the sliding glass door, the A/C was very loud and kept me up all night, It is a older place, but has been...

Cozy little hotel, right on the beach. We traveled with young kids (ages 4 and 9) and they loved the pool (which was centrally located to all the rooms in the hotel). Quick drive to tourist parts of St. Augustine, and a Publix right down the road. The staff here was WONDERFUL! We never felt uncomfortable asking for anything, from...

Basic inexpensive hotel for a quick overnight stay and a day at the beach. No elevator for someone like me who is disabled and stairs are quite difficult. I had no idea there was no elevator and they could not accommodate us with a first floor room. The rooms and the pool are in desperate need of an upgrade or...

We found this place as a spur of the moment, last minute deal on New Year's Eve. The room was very clean and the bathtub was nice. I think all rooms come with the garden tub/jacuzzi (I would call ahead to confirm). The front desk host was friendly and even provided us with a list of places to bring in...

I was a little nervous to book a non-chain hotel on the beach because of previous negative experiences, but this little hotel is a gem! Staff were friendly and accommodating, and the hotel was very clean. Our room was in good condition and had a great view of the beach. The beach was just across the road and not crowded...

The room was clean and comfortable although furniture a bit out dated. A piece of laminate had come loose on the kitchenette countertop. Our roomview was simply a hill next to the road. Location to the beach is great except for the busy A1A highway you have to cross. It's a bit like playing Frogger! Beautiful sunrise and plenty of...
