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... More

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... More

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.

I've now visited several times myself, the last couple of times with our own young daughter. Simply put, this place just has a great vibe about it that I love. Location is incredible, layout and look of the hotel... More

Stayed 2 nights for New Years eve. We had room 204. We thought room had kitchenette but only had microwave and toaster. Asked if there was another room available because we planned on making our new years day black eye peas and collard greens. There was another room available but couldn't trade the view for a stove. Luckily our friends... More

Although while we were there it was not busy there is limited parking. The staff was friendly and the layout of the motel was nice. The best part of the motel is it's location. We stayed for two nights in one of the balcony ocean view rooms. Simply put the room was in bad need of an update! The balcony... More

My 'Tribe' has been to the Sands a few dozen times over the past 30 years or so. It is a wonderful reminder of a time when the pace of life was a little slower...a little more personal...a little less pretentious and filled with 'fluff'. The Sands is as much 'luxury' as I personally can handle. All my kids (5... More

All though much cheaper rates than most the saying you pay for what you get stands here. I loved the layout of the motel, management staff, free ice, but I just could not get over the dirty room, pool, bathroom, fridge. Our air conditioner could not keep up with the daily temperatures but at night no to bad. The shower... More
