We drove 3 1/2 hours stuck in traffic to finally arrive at our hotel we had originally reserved, only to find they had double booked, we called the Sands, explained the horrible time we'd been having and Chrissy fit us right in. The Sands was so clean, our room was beautiful, the view from our balcony was great!! We spent... More

I was looking for a hotel close to the starting line for the Smuttynose Half and was so pleasantly surprised to find it literally WAS at the starting line! Its a typical Hampton beach hotel. Could use quite a bit of updating, but the room was overall clean, and the bed was comfortable. The bathroom really needed some renovations, but... More

Do not stay here....rooms need drastic upkeep. Wallpaper peeling, dirty carpets, dirty bathroom (had to remove a big clump of hair from the shower drain before using it), mold, plug-ins in the halls to mask the smells, window screens broken, poor mattresses and pillows, everything covered in days (probably weeks) of dust. If you are going to stay here take... More

I went to this "resort" because of the reviews. On some sites they were 3 stars, vs. 1-2 stars in other places. I was literally only going to be there to shower and sleep so I wasn't looking for anything too special. One advantage is there is a large refrigerator and microwave in the room. This is nice in the... More

Stayed at The Sands in Hampton for an off season band at Wallys. Not clean, the bed in the room was lumpy and old, the pullout bed was so old it was only about an inch thick. There was food on the floor and the bathroom had broken tile and wood and the floors were dirty. Air conditioner worked but... More

The hotel was run down and desperately needs updating. The hotel smells of old cigarettes and the "air fresheners" in the hallway does nothing to cover up the smell. The room itself was not dirty (that we saw), but the sink and bathtub were stained, as well as all of the grout and kitchen sink. The wall paper was peeling... More

We stayed for 5 days last week. Not the most expensive and not the best hotel. Room was large and clean but a bit worn in the decor. They could update the room to make the stay nicer. Only one block to beach
