This is a nice hotel and we have stayed here several times. It is nothing fancy but it does have a continental breakfast. They allow pets so if you don't mind dogs barking late in the evening or early in the morning you will be ok. It is very clean place. There was supposed to be free WIFI but it...

I was reading the other reviews and I must agree, summer time pool is very crowded with children. Suggestion maybe make 9:00- 10 adult time. They do have two pools one outside and one in, I must say beds are old. I think they are trying to upgrade but still needs a lot of work. They have added a Cont....

Not neat & clean, grounds not clean, window locks broken, blind broken, phone jack plate falling out of wall, no plug in sink, room small and crowded, box spring showed & dirty, no wifi in rooms. Definitely not a resort!

This is our third time staying at The Sands. We choose this location for the price and because they take pets. In the past we have gone down over Thanksgiving and have booked a room with a kitchen, yes I could cook a Thanksgiving dinner in the little kitchen! This time we chose a room with a view, perfect location...

We arrive at noon on a slow Wednesday and were greeted with a scowl. The hotel was clearly empty, yet we were told that we couldn't possibly receive the keys until 2. The hangry woman told us we could pay for our room, but had to come two hours later. Not very accommodating and frankly, rude.

nothing special about the room...a bit pricey for the condition of the property in my opinion. First room we paid for was occupied when we went to enter it. Thankfully not of people just there belongings.

The only reason for the one star is for the very rude woman at the front desk named Heidi. She has a nasty attitude and even snapped at me when I asked what time check out was. There was no place to sit for breakfast except the noisy game room and when we sat on the stairs we where told...

I do have to say we have stayed here a time or two in part because they do take dogs in some rooms and some where cheap when we were working on our property there. They have redone some rooms and those are better. But our last stay mid week the room would have frightened the Hotel Impossible Guy! It...
