We stayed at this hotel for one night. The room itself was a decent size with a refrigerator/freezer and microwave. It had a little bit of a musty smell but all in all it was clean. Unfortunately, the air-conditioner sounded like a jet engine when it was running and we couldn't sleep with it on. We tried using the fan...

We had a great stay here..very clean room and the area was very well maintained. Small refrigerator and AC in the room worked out nicely. Kind of a retro feel to the whole place. Staff was very pleasant as well.

My husband and I stayed at Sands for 4 nights. We were upgraded to Room 18 that had a beautiful porch with a hammock, chairs and a table where we really enjoyed having breakfast every morning and watching unbelievably beautiful sunsets. The room was functional and clean, not fancy but very cute and charming! The owner of the place was...

My family and I stayed here last time we went to the Keys in June of 2016 and we loved it, the rooms are set up perfect, everything you need with great views feels like a home away from home, my 3 year old calls it the "Tiny House" and wants to go back to it again lol :) Great...

We stayed here for one night as that's all the time we had. It was fantastic. Very small boutique-style resort on the ocean. The room was nice and we had a king sized bed. We didn't use the pool or hot tub because of time but I wish we had. The management was friendly. We can't wait to go back...

Sands of Islamorada is a great place located directly on the water. We rented a one bedroom suite and the place was quaint and clean.. The owners are very accommodating and Mercy is very friendly and takes pride in their property. I even forgot a few things in the room and called the next day and they secured it all...

I struggled to give Sands of Islamorada 3 stars but felt that 2 was a little churlish. On the positive side, we arrived early and were checked in to our room immediately. We had booked the first floor suite for one night with a wrap around balcony and separate living room. The views from the balcony are lovely, even if...

We stayed here for 2 nights Oct 15 and 16 2016. We felt welcome right from the start. We stayed in room 14. There was 4 of us. Plenty of room and clean not one complaint. Will definitely come back. Enjoyed being able to go and sit on dock and enjoy a cocktail or cup of coffee.

This was our first time at Sands of Islamorada. It's a small "old Florida" property. The couple that manage the property take a lot of pride in the well maintained property grounds and the cleanliness of the rooms. Very nice couple; very accommodating. They were very helpful getting our boat in and out of the slip. Would definitely stay there...

We spent 5 nights in the very comfortable room no. 14. The place is quiet and has everything you need and lots of space, a real home from home. Nice pool area and sun loungers overlooking the sea view - beautiful. Not many eating options within walking distance except for the superb Lazy Days, ate there 4 nights out of...

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
An awesome, intimate escape right in the center of the Keys. All of our rooms have recently been refreshed from top to bottom. For a pet & people friendly tropical retreat...This is the spot. This is the kind of place Jimmy Buffett sings about. We are very Keysee and very clean! A sparkling pool and hot-tub with a view of the beach, boat launch and pier, await you. Our rooms and efficiencies can accomodate from 1 to 6 people very comfortably. ... more   less
