Easy to find and an easy 3 block walk to the beach. Lady who works the desk if very friendly. Bed was clean and fairly comfortable. However, pillows had an odd smell. Went to put some food in the fridge and about passed out from odorl. Smelled as if someone left fish in there for a week. My husband went...

We arrived in Atlantic Beach on Sunday 8/23 and was very disappointed with the hotel we had made reservations with. We stayed there one night, and my husband got up the next morning, and called Sandpiper Motel. The manager Blake was so helpful, and said they had vacancy. My husband went to check out the rooms, and liked everything about...

The beds were pretty comfortable and the staff was very friendly. I only had a few issues. One, there was a dead cricket leg in the bathroom. Two, there were spiders in our room. Three, I was eaten alive by bed bugs! Four, the bathroom floor made my feet black. If I had to choose to stay here again I...

Look, this is an old motel don't be misled and it could use updates......the Hyatt regency or sandals it's not. However, if all you require is a place to lay your head and a toilet/shower your golden. The beds seemed newer and were quite comfortable, we slept like a rock. The room was clean - no odors no bugs clean...

The location is perfect! Very close to the beach -- within walking distance. Fairly close to some restaurants as well. Staff is very friendly and helpful. The only thing that bothered us a little bit was the shower and the bathroom... the bathroom is very small, and unfortunately you would be able to hear your neighbor's water running as well......

Checked in later. Front desk staff was very helpful and friendly. The room was not fancy or large, but it was very clean and the beds are very comfortable. The motel is within walking distance to the beach and nice restaurants, which is why we chose it.

This was my first time staying at the Sandpiper. The room was clean and comfortable. The room had been freshly painted, had new carpet and new bed. The towels and linen were crisp and clean. The bathroom was not remodeled, but was clean with a large stand up shower stall. There is a small pool which I enjoyed. The staff...

“Our room was upstairs facing the road. I loved sitting on the porch. Especially watching the fireworks over the water from the festival!”

“Rooms on the side/corners are quiet. And be sure to ask about the pool and if it is bleached or has chlorine. If in doubt, do not wear your bathing suit..just throw on some old clothes and if you begin to burn....get out fast.”
