Old but good

The Sands is an older place that was a true resort back in its prime. Now a bit outdated and in need of lots of TLC. Still a clean place to stay and friendly staff. No complaints.

Place is a joke.

Staff where not helpful and almost rude/mean. Pool was a joke. Not heated and no morning hours. Would not go here even if they where paying. I would look over this property. The whole thing needs a Reno.

We had a great time

We had a good time. The room was cute and you could see the water from our room in the distance. Not alot of noise. The price was right with hotels.com. I would recommend for people who are looking for an inexpensive place to sleep but still want to be on the shore. The outside looks a little rough but the rooms were beautiful!
