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.

Let me just begin with, I was not expecting anything fancy at The Sands. My expectations were low. But I will never ever go back to this place. First of all, less than 24 hours before check in (7pm the day before to be exact) I received a call from The Sands informing me that my rate was going up...

We will come back. We loved The Sands. It is old, no doubt about it. But it has much charm. It was clean. If the carpet was replaced, it would get an excellent rating, instead of very good ;). The pool is great, the beach is great. Our room had 2 double beds as there was 4 of us one...

I love the set-up of the hotel!, pool in the middle, incredible beach right behind it. Had to be the most affordable spot on the beach. Love the 50's decor (built in 1947). Rooms very clean, comfy beds. Best spot. All you need is malt shop on location! Only stayed one night, wish it was more.
