We stayed at the sands March 25,26th. The rates were the cheapest in ocean shores for an ocean veiw 3rd floor room with kitchenette. The room itself was a good size, the small kitchenette was sufficient, wish the bathroom had a fan and better heating !! The king bed was extremly old and uncomfortable,I always check for bed bugs when i stay in lower budgeted motels, the matress was ripped up at almost every corner..... not sure why (just old??) The cable was shotty!! Some channels didnt come in clear. The large picture window had a great veiw, but the frame of the window was falling apart and there was a black sticky substance along the edges!! There was crumbs of some sort in the window seal and a spider as well!! As others have said , the pool was extremly scummy, but the hot tub seemed better!! The contenetal breakfast was ok, yogurt and fruit were good, but the bagels were not!! overall if you have pets its probely good, but I might consider another place to stay next time!!
One last thing they advertise no WIFI in the rooms,but offer it in the lobby. We were on the 3rd floor closest to the lobby (314) and did pick up wifi in the room !
