Coral Sands is place we go to every year. The prices are reasonable and the rooms are clean and stocked with toiletries. The manager John is very friendly and accommodating. We will stay there again in the future.

Didn't want to miss Indian Summer Weekend, booked at Coral Sands Motel . Checked all the reviews, they were mixed some said great some said the worst place ever. Now we know why. We were greeted by one of the nicest managers you could have, a woman named 'Dawn' friendly, helpful and accommodating. The room was a notch below what...

First....Dawn was fabulous! Thank you Dawn!! It was a pleasure dealing with you!!! Second....The motel is old and needs to be updated to more modern standards (flooring, appliances, bathroom fixtures, etc.) I stayed in the 3 bed efficiency with a kitchen, just for one night for the Street Fair. It was clean, the beds are a bit small for being...

This is an older motel that definitely needs to be updated. The rooms are small, the bed was very uncomfortable, cords in a pile on the floor, bathroom needs the most help of all. The parking is deplorable, very tight spaces in a very small area. Five or so more are across the street all jammed together in a very...

Basically your average sea-side motel. Clean, fairly well up kept and basic in amenities. The staff was great, very cheerful and helpful, check in was quick and easy. Please note there is off-site parking because they just don't have enough spaces to accommodate everyone. It is barely over a block away, fenced/secured and no trouble at all to walk back...

Apartment very dated. Staff not at all friendly. Having visited ocean city with my family for the last several years this was awful. No electricity during several hours of our vacation. Toilet not working. There are many more friendly and better kept accommodations on this beautiful island.

Do not stay here! To start the parking is awful! The rooms are dirty, the furniture is dated. The so called suite is a dump. The first bathroom has not sink, the sink is in the bedroom. You have to walk through the first bedroom to get to the second bedroom. Closets no dressers. And the closets only have shelves,...

An older motel, very clean and well kept. Had two young children with two adults in room and it worked very well. Close to boardwalk and two restaurants. Plenty of towels. No coffee pot, but we took our own.

Check in was easy and Dawn was very friendly and helpful! Location is amazing! Room was clean and slept all 6 of us comfortably. The money we saved staying here allowed us a lot more money to have fun. Only negatives were there was no pool(would have been nice since the ocean was so rough during our stay) and the...

We left early because the place was so filthy and disgusting. I would NEVER go back there! The staff was nice enough but the place needs to be condemned. The pictures below are just a few of the highlights. The location was good but still does not justify the conditions at the motel.
