    4/5 Good

    My family and I really enjoyed our stay at Sterling sands, the property was very nice along with view of the ocean. The only down fall was that the elevator on our side was not working which made it a little difficult at times to leave and come back to our property, other than that everything was great.

    5/5 Excellent

    Spacious, close to the beach. We loved our stay! I would have no problem at all recommending Sterling Sands to others.

    4/5 Good

    Great place, but management is out of touch.

    My main gripe is the beach and umbrellas. I called ahead and was told NO umbrellas, you have to use the rental company. The issue? The rental company closes and takes their umbrellas back at 5pm when it is still 95* and the sun is still bearing down. The rental company mentioned we were welcome to set up our own umbrellas, too bad I was told not to bring one because it wasn't allowed! I went to the front desk and they confirmed the rental company was correct. You can set up an umbrella as long as it is behind the row of rental umbrellas. Again, that's great if I wasn't 300 miles from home where I left my umbrellas. Whoever is answering the phones at the main line needs a clearer understanding of what is or is not allowed on their own section of the beach. Knowing ahead of time I could have saved 30$ a day by bringing my own chairs and umbrellas would have been great!

    Pros: Clean, easy beach access, mostly stocked full kitchen, separate bedroom for the kid(s), well furnished and close to plenty of places to eat.

    Cons: Te bedding in our room was very firm. An upgrade to pillow top mattresses would be a nice addition for the $250/night price.

    Location: Within 2 miles of all "must eat" locations like Dewey's, Boshamps and Brotulas.

    3/5

    Room with a view

    The hotel was actually good, even though I have stayed in better. I liked the full kitchen and the living room. The carpet was stained and the kitchen small appliances need to be replaced. The bathrooms were small and there wasn't much room to store luggage or hang clothes. But the view of the beach was perfect. All of the rooms had a view. I would stay here again.
