Reviewed 7 August 2012

We were a bit apprehensive to stay here since it didn't receive the best reviews, but the price was right and we had our two small dogs with us so we gave it a shot. I'm glad we did! The place was clean, super friendly, fun and had a lot of charm. It's definitely an older motel, so it's a little rundown in places, but that just gave it personality. I'd rather stay someplace unusual like The Sands Resort than a boring generic Days Inn or Comfort Inn.

The pools were nice, the hot tub was GREAT and the room was decorated like a log cabin. Overall I highly recommend this place for anyone with kids or pets or with a group of friends. It's probably not the best place for a romantic weekend though.

Room Tip: Ask for a room facing the ocean on the second floor

We have stayed here several times. It's always been clean and in good repair. It is a short walk through the dunes to the beach.

The reasonably priced rooms and nice indoor pool. Nice people working there, really friendly and helpful. Rooms are smelly!!! Had to go to the store to get an air freshener. Pee stains on the floor from all the pets. Furniture was falling a part, wobbly chairs, no padding in the sofa, chair was full of dust. So outdated that even cheap, dusty fake flowers were out place there. I do believe that back in 70's or 80's it was a nice place to stay, now it's in need of major makeover. Have to say my favorite piece in the room was a really CUTE fake moose head. Bathroom was really tiny, but cute also. Nice size balcony with an ocean view,you could see wildlife. The trail to the beach was OK, just a little walk and you are there. Pet owners do not clean after their pets, so really watch where you step. Overall, if you are looking for something really cheap with ocean view and pet friendly come to the Sands, but personally I'll stay somewhere else next time.

Room Tip: Another hotel

Stayed over Father's Day weedend. Staff was very courteous and helpful making suggestions for dining and exploring the beach. Easy access to the beach just a short walk over the dunes. Extremely pet friendly.

Room Tip: Junior suites are great for a couple and the kitchen area helps cut down on the cost of dining out.

The room was reasonably priced. The Counter receptionist "Chris" July 11, 2012 5:pm shouldn't be aloud to work with the public. He was extreamly rude.
