Thought this motel would be great, in the 1940s design and on the beach, but unfortunately the pictures show a different look to the real thing. We paid over the odds to a modern motel in Orlando and the cleanliness of the appliance ,the Windows, the bath plug with more hair in it than my brother has on his head....

We had the best time! older place and old rooms but very clean. Family friendly and great staff. The rooms face either the courtyard, pool, or beach.....can't go wrong. Parking is not good, few spots in front of motel but they do have a parking lot across the street. Can't wait to go back next year.

Stayed at this place a few years back and wasn't real happy then, even worse this stay. I'm not sure where the people stayed that keep calling this place clean but it wasn't here. Walked in took my shoes and walked to the "couch" my socks were filthy. Next morning made pot of coffee and couldn't find clean cup in...

Location is great, close to restaurants, shopping and grocery. The view is beautiful but be ready to walk a long way to the ocean. The beach is the widest beach I have ever seen. The Sands is old but clean, very interesting kitchenette system in our room. Some of the clientele are rowdy partiers so not a place of someone...

I have stayed here many times. This is my first spring break. It won't be my last. I have stayed at other places on the beach. Including prime condos. My kids always ask to come back here. This place has more to offer than you can imagine. The staff is so helpful. Our housekeeper has seen me grow up and...

This is an older hotel but clean and well-maintained. I really enjoyed the old style tile in the bathroom and vintage furnishings. The room was large with a full kitchen, living room, bathroom and bedroom with a door. Plenty of room! The office staff was very helpful and kind - even printed our boarding passes for us! It is right...

I've stayed here several times on girlfriend get-always; with my husband & for business purposes. It's always clean, despite being hard to tell because it's so old. The guests and staff are ALWAYS super. It's affordable (hard to find down here sometimes). The sunsets are stunning enough to calm your ire. And it's a heated pool! Come on. A nice...

We booked spur of the moment for the 16th-17th. The staff was wonderfully accommodating. We loved the room right on the beach and poolside. The room was very clean and ready for us when we got there. For the price and location it cant be beat. Just a perfect little hotel in a wonderful spot
