I have attended the same conference 6 times over the last 8 years. I have stayed at four different properties during that time. This stay so far was the worst. The property has a lot of deferred maintenance issues. There is no WIFI, the room appeared clean, and the bathroom was clean. But the king size mattress was lumpy. The...

We are back .... we visited in December but stayed elsewhere. Every thing else was full. This is a cute little room with a king size bed, tiny faux kitchen lol microwave/mini fridge/ coffee maker. I love our little rustic room. It serves we are off to visit town tomorrow and for a walk on the beach

Worst experience ever! I will NEVER again stay the Sands Resort in Ocean Shores! Long story short....Our room had no heat, when I called the front desk I was told by the kid working the counter that he should already be off work and the office was closed. I asked to speak to the manager and was told she is...

I was on a ‘wing-it’ driving tour Thanksgiving week and decided to give The Sands a try. The price was more than reasonable! The room was cozy and had a very North Woods rustic décor to it. All in all, with an oceanfront room, the price, and the comfort, I found the Sands to be a Great Find! There were...

Had an amazing time at the sands this past weekend with my wife for her birthday. Although the weather was a bit stormy we still had an amazing stay at the sands. Ocean view, the suite was set up like a little cabin. Super cozy, had a full mini kitchen and fireplace. Was perfect for the weather to enjoy the...

We have done an annual trip to the Sands for over 20 years. Parents, grandkids, and anyone we considered family we would bring with us. Renting anywhere from 3-6 rooms annually for one week and a ton of weekend trips throughout the year. Over the last several years we had seen the condition and cleanliness go down but we're forgiving...

My girlfriend and I stayed her with our kids over labor day weekend. Price was $550 for 2 nights. Check in went smoothly, and that's were the enjoyment stopped. Took about 5 Minutes to get the door unlocked, it was rusty and broken. When we entered the room, we were greeted with the unpleasant smell of mold. The rooms are...

Our room was decent, at first. Nice view, close walk to the ocean, kitchen was functional and appliances worked. As our visit went on, we noticed these black centipede type worms that were everywhere (floor, walls, ceiling. (They're nocturnal). It turned our stay from okay to bothersome and uncomfortable. Never again will we stay here.

I knew when my friend booked this place we were taking a risk. First impression was from the desk clerk who made us feel like we were interrupting her, she wasn't very friendly. Had a dispute over the price and she wasn't helpful. Got the keys, went to the room (mind you, your front door is a glass slider probably...
