2/5 Poor

Traveled with family and small children
Disliked: Cleanliness
Not our first time staying here and while the place is fairly outdated it was always clean. That was not the case this time, upon entering the room there was sand all over the floors and dressers. Getting in to bed the first night there was sand all over the sheets under the blankets. There were gnats all over the sink and the toilet was basically coming off the ground and leaking. We found used a-tips under the bed from god knows when. We were extremely dissatisfied with the state of the room and although the staff was friendly enough it doesn’t make up for the state of the room. It’s safe to say the COVID procedures they boast about on the website are not being practiced. It’s a shame because we have really had some great experiences there in the past.

This place is run down. Not one door closes properly. NO CUSTOMER SERVICE period. Only booked because was near beach. Booked ocean view, view is of the dunes. No beach chairs, umbrellas, nothing but at tiny this beach towel, that you have to turn in a card to get. Walls/doors are dirty. Towels are old, very small and thin, they only give you 2. There’s a bunch of kids working at the place with no common sense. Make sure you have a donot disturb sign when you check in, we didn’t get one in our room. We had a young staffer walk on us in the bathroom. According to the manager he followed protocol. Basically it’s my fault that we had no do not disturb sign. Yet we heard no knock on front door or bathroom before they entered. Doors don’t close properly so when staffer left they left door open. Manager on my first call told me people don’t book here because of beach/location they book because of my amenities. She apologized up and down after the staffer walked in room incident (even though according to her they followed protocol) and said she wished she could offer something but had nothing to offer. In my mind what about all those amenities. No coffee pots in rooms. This stay turned me off to Jersey shore.

I am so glad that I had insider information that there were two locations for the White Sands buildings—- one is right on the beach(motel) and one is across the street(hotel). I was in the hotel, which offered decent accommodations for us. The only “complaint” I have is that I wish that checkout was a bit later than 11am, or that they at least offered late checkout (even for a price I would have gladly paid!). Also, I wish I knew in advance of their generous policy of allowing pre-check in so that guests who are beginning their stay can acquire beach passes at noon, spend hours in the beautiful beach, and then check in at the appropriate time (4pm). Overall, it was a great experience with an attentive staff and the location and beach is superb!
