This motel was comfy and cozy! the room was clean, and suited all our needs on our trip to the beach. The pool was very nice and came in handy durring my wifes nap time for my son and I to cool off and enjoy a swim. All of the staff were very polite and kind....and I would like to give a big Thank you again to "Mario Andretty" for the assistance she provided us. We WILL be back again soon.
I have been coming to this hotel since I was a kid. My family and I loved it there. I now visit with my family every year!! The staff is great. They always smile and talk to you every time you see them. I am actually visiting June 2012 with friends that are visiting and I know are stay will be just like the rest!!
We stayed in unit 106 with our dog. Location is close to beach, but several miles from the boardwalk. Beds & pillows were clean and comfortable. Shower pressure was low, faucets in sink & shower work, but green from the hard well water. Bathroom tile floor was old but clean. No closet in room, only a 6 drawer dresser with 4 good drawers & 2 that stuck a little. Cable TV quality was good. No phone, no clock. No outlet in bathroom, no hairdryers, but desk offers extension cords. Overall, for the price ( $64/night + $10 pet fee) it was worth the price if you are not expecting a Comfort Inn experience.
Where to begin? The rooms are small and outdated. No water pressure. Dirty. Bugs. Odd odor to room==combo of smoke and something else. You feel like you're staying at skid row flop house and may have to sell your possessions to survive. That's how depressing this place makes you feel. In addition, the locks on the door are a joke--anyone w/ a bit of muscle could break the door down. Many of the people staying here were creepy and unfriendly. We had a corner room next to the intersection which subjected us to traffic noise/blaring music all night. Never again and if you're wise you will avoid this nightmare of a motel.
Will never stay her again. Stinks, water was digusting, i ws even afraid to get in the bed. my son had to stick one of his shirts in the crack of the wall so that no bugs would be in. the only thing nice about the place was the pool. this place ruined my vacation,.
This is a motel for those who love old things. It is like stepping back to the 1950's with it's pink tiled bathrooms and wood paneling. The best thing about it is they allow pets and are very sweet and tolerant of dogs. The beach is just behind the hotel and it is pristine and uncrowded. They have the nicest staff at the beach. And if you are super picky about the latest most up to date amenities don't go here. But if you love quirky charm and truly nice proprietors, I highly recommend it.
It was the cheapest place we could find and it wasn't so bad. The water did smell (like rust,) the rooms had an odor (of smoke) but you can bring your pets and they are really cheap. The staff there was SO nice and I loved going in to see their cats. I would recommend the place if you'r not looking for anything fancy, just a place to sleep.
Never again. This place is a dump! The water is horrible, the beds, sheets and even the pool was FULL of sand. No wonder this place is called "The Sands". The rooms are very musky. I should have done my research before spending the money at this place.
We love the Sands. Sure, it is old, and out of date. Sure, there is no hot tub, or bar, or latte. Sure, everything seems a bit rickety.
But our dog is a cripple. Had a stroke from Lymes disease. We can go to the Sands, have a great vacation, and be happy in a joint you just sleep in. The staff (especially Mary) is wonderful. Dogs are welcome. Daisy loves the beach, and it is a peaceful beach there, as opposed to the fun & bustle down at OC.
I love it all, but the Sands is great for us. We'll go back in four weeks
