My best friend from college and I did a get-away for two nights here. The access to the beach is great. We stayed in a less expensive room, with something called a "garden view." Translation: bushes and the parking lot. Why call it a "garden view?" The building is practically on top of the 30 mph road, so we got...

HOTEL’S FAVOURITE REVIEW
Reviewed 19 March 2017

The Sanderling is every bit worth the hype. It's not at all pretentious and the staff was very genuine in greeting you and asking what you needed. The lobby and other sitting areas were so comfortable and with the view of the ocean (or sound depending on which side of the building you were on) made it ideal. I could...

We stayed in Sanderling Resort summer of 2016 with our 2 boys age 7 and 9. We stayed in the family North Inn Oceanview room overlooking the ocean and the hotel pool. Paying extra for the room is worth it, the sunrise and sunset is absolutely amazing, the sound of ocean waves is so relaxing. The room is good size...

This was my first stay at the Sanderling Resort. The resort is right on the beach and you do have to be on the 3rd floor to get a clear view of the ocean, but the beach is so accessible and the resort arranges for the set up of beach chairs and umbrellas by staff at guest request. Complimentary Coffee...

This was a nice two day break. Lots of flowers were being planted and it was fun to see the season begin. We stayed on the ground floor in the North building facing the pool. It was heated; that was nice. There was a ramp up to the dune deck which made it easy for me, as well as a...
