Atlantic Sands Hotel & Conference Center
Ranked #20 of 27 Hotels in Rehoboth Beach
Reviewed 14 August 2017

We stayed here for 3 nights with some other families who had kids participating in a local baseball tournament. We knew the location was great, but the rooms were $380 per night. Having done this tournament before, we knew what location we wanted and the reviews on this place weren't great, but we rolled the dice. Positives: location is awesome, service was good, nice pool, nice restaurant with buffet breakfast and that food was very good. Negatives: dirty bathroom, broken light fixture, room safe that jammed when opening, balcony door that locked us out on our balcony, old rugs, uncomfortable, small beds, small rooms. We had a nice weekend anyway, but I won't stay here again until they start taking the enormous amount of money they charge per night and invest that in upgrading their hotel. Also, it rained one morning and when it cleared up later in the day, they wouldn't lend out beach chairs They said that they sent the staff home. And, we had to reactivate our room keys multiple times throughout our stay because they stopped working. No laundry facilities either. I don't know where the overpriced room money is going, but I'm sure it's not going to the poor staff members who really tried their best to deal with unhappy customers, nor is it going into keeping the hotel nice and worth the fees they charge.

Room Tip: We were on the first floor facing the boardwalk and it was actually pretty quiet, I was worried abou...

We stayed aug 10-13, 2017. One adult 3 kids. Room 206 was great. There was enough room for everyone two queen beds and a pull out couch. Room was clean had two bathrooms which was perfect considering we had 3 kids ages 13-15 there. Shower pressure was good, which is a rare find these days and the water was hot. We had a small (working) refrigerator and a microwave as well as small coffee pot. Side view of the ocean, boardwalk and beach. Staff was nice and helpful. Hotel handled all the kids well. It was not noisey or crowded (mind you it was a baseball tournament weekend). Can't beat the location. No need to drive, everything is right next to the hotel: beach, food, arcade, bars, and shops. Hotel offers free beach chairs and umbrella rentals. I do wish there was a laundry room. We enjoyed our stay. Thank you.

We came expecting a nice room with a king bed. We have a small king suite with one small window with chicken wire in the glass. When i asked if i could have a window that opens i was told that none of the king bed rooms windows open. Really at a beach front hotel? The room also smells of bug disinfectant, is dark and grim. I was directed by the website to make the reservation online and that information was not given. I made the reservation in January as we were coming for a wedding. Other quests reservations include breakfast, but not ours. Because, we were told, that was a promotion for reservations made in June and July. We were also charged the top rate.

I am currently here for a week with my family and am very disappointed. The location is of course superb and the pool on the boardwalk is a nice touch, but our room is dark and smelly and musty and there is ZERO ventilation...no window to open to dry our wet towels and clothes and bathing suits and when I asked the front desk for help, they just shrugged their shoulders. Service has been very poor. We are paying about $375/night and I feel completely gypped. Our "suite" has a separate little area with a pullout bed that is probably 30 years old....extremely uncomfortable. Never again.

So this is an older hotel that is in need of some TLC but don't let that discourage you. It's right on the boardwalk and close to so many restaurants and shops. It's oceanfront people. I would rather stay in a 4 star hotel right on the ocean than a 5 star hotel with no beach views. But that's just me. Halls are narrow but location is everything. I would stay here again next time we come to Rehoboth!

Love your sentiment!!!! We are older, but of much value. We are mature, but full of grace. We are in an unbelievable location and so thrilled to be a part of it!!!!

Thank you for being a guest and for staying with us. As you so brilliantly captured, we are a GEM that has a great location and is located in the heart of the beach community.

Each year we add something new, so when you return next year, we think you will definitely appreciate the new improvements. Having said that, its IMPOSSIBLE to be in a better spot in Rehoboth Beach.
