I am always grateful to hear our guests comments. It is so important to be able to stay in touch and make improvements. I am perplexed with this review. Dreadful architecture? Some of the buildings are old. But there is plenty of room around the beds to get around. The 300 building is the original White Sands and was built...

First trip to NJ. The location of the hotel is perfect, and even though we were across the street, our room had a nice view of the ocean. The rooms were clean, but the patio screen was torn and we had some bugs get in the room. The staff at the front desk was always hiding in the back and...

Thank you for taking the time to review our hotel. It seems we had an employee or two that just were not representing the White Sands attitude. I apologize that you found this to be so. I have already fired a few, and we had an employee meeting on hospitality the White Sands way. We also purchased a bell for...

I have been meaning to review this place for awhile. I didn't hate it per say...but I don't think i'll ever go back just for the financial part. Makes more sense to put the money into a rental. I think it's safe to say that point pleasant can offer you this place...a motel...or you need to rent yourself a beach...

Thank you very much for your very thorough review of the Hotel. While I respectfully disagree that the facility is not worth every penny of what we charge, I do see that there were a few issues that must be attended to. We have already remedied the front desk employee who was so inappropriately rude. She has lost her job...

Very pricey for average accomodations. There were two buildings, didn't know which one to go to check in. Front desk personnel very rude. Went for a wedding recep and beach wedding, and front desk didn't tell us anything ... where to go on the beach, etc. Also, there was a $50 refundable deposit but was not made aware of when...

Thank you for taking the time to review our hotel. It is so important to us to hear how we can accommodate our guests best. We have signs outside, on both sides of the property, directing you to check-in in the main hotel. Also, we provide each guest with a confirmation letter that explains all of our policies for check-in...

Having an ice machine across the street on the 3rd floor doesn't make it convenient at 10:00 at night when you are in your room looking for a drink. Why have a restaurant on the premises not open? The mattresses sag terribly. Glad I came off season rooms are not worth more. Lynn

Hi Lynn, Thank you for taking the time to review our hotel. In the room we have a placard that states that we will deliver ice to your room. You just have to call the hotel front desk to request delivery. We do try to accommodate all our guests needs. I am sorry that you were inconvenienced. I hope you...

After reading the mixed reviews on here, I was a little hesitant on which place to stay for a few days after Labor Day. The White Sands was an awesome choice! Since it was right after the holiday the beach was pretty empty in front of the resort and the rooms weren't peak season prices. We weren't looking for anything...

Sounds like the perfect get-away to me! Thank you so much for writing about your experience with The White Sands. I love that you took advantage or our closeness to NYC! Staying at the Jersey Shore does provide the perfect balance of shore and a closeness to so many locations; New York, Philadelphia, Great Adventure, just to name a few!...
