Nice hotel right off boardwalk

Posted Jul 20, 2017
Pros: Friendly staff, convenient location, quiet rooms.
Cons: Upgrade facilities, but not a big deal on my mind -- the quaint little old hotel is attractive to some of us.
Location: The location couldn't be best if you're there for the beach. Right by the boardwalk and near the middle of the recreational area, restaurants nearby.
This is clearly an old hotel, but one that's well-maintained and managed. It's not a fancy hotel, but it did for us what a hotel is supposed to do: It was perfect for a family stay of several days, a place to come rest and cool off at night after time in the beach and boardwalk areas. We cared about cleanliness, staff being courteous and convenience of the location more than to new facilities or fancy gadgets in the room (the TV was clearly old and barely-high definition, but we didn't come to the beach to watch TV, beyond maybe the weather forecasts). We didn't try their breakfast buffet because it seemed a bit pricey for a family, so can't comment on that. We didn't try the pool because it's really a pool for kids (I think the deepest part was 5 feet), but all of that looked clean and well-kept. We did like that, even though we had a room right by the parking lot area, the hotel was quiet and we could easily sleep (they emphasized quiet time at check in, starting at 10 p.m., and we thought that was good for all). Finally, we were able to check out beach chairs and beach umbrellas easily and can't say enough how nice the young lady doing that work was, despite having to work there all day through the hot summer days. We'd stay here again.

Hotel on The Beach

Posted Jul 13, 2017
Had a very nice beach vacation. This hotel was on the beach. Liked the fact that free parking and beach umbrellas were included for hotel guests. Liked the complimentary old fruit water in lobby. Plenty of clean towels and free ice. Our room was very clean. Breakfast buffet in restaurant was ok. Went once and didn't return. Restaurant staff was very friendly. Didn't like the fact that upon check in we were told that a charge was being put on our credit card to include hotel meals. Would be taken off upon checkout. It was. We paid everything in cash so we didn't need this. Happy hour at bar in restaurant was Mon-Thursday only. Location to the beach was key. Walk out hotel and it was right there! We will stay here again but would like to have ocean view next time with a walk out balcony. Talked to a woman who had front ocean view and she said her room was not special and very overpriced. Overall our stay was great.

Had an awesome time on my birthday with my family. The staff is great was fantastic and you're right on the boardwalk so you can walk to restaurants, shops and amusements are right there. I love coming to this hotel.

Disappointing

Posted Jul 10, 2017
This is an expensive hotel on the beach that is in serious need of renovating. We stayed there over the weekend and although the location is excellent, the hotel is falling apart. It's dirty. We couldn't even get their WiFi to work. We won't be staying there again (unless they do an upgrade).

Thank you very much for your perspective on your stay at the Atlantic Sands Hotel. In reviewing your comments, I am a bit surprised you had difficulty with WiFi, as we upgraded our system this past fall and we get great comments on the bandwith now available, even in our outdoor restaurants and pool area. We appreciate your feedback and are always working to improve the physical aspects of our property. This past fall we redid 64 Oceanfront balconies and have been getting rave reviews on the improvements. We hope you will visit the Atlantic Sands again in the future.

You take WONDERFUL pictures. We enhanced the seating at the pool this summer and even added tables for families to sit and enjoy lunch, dinner or cocktails at the pool. So very glad you enjoyed yourselves and we look forward to your return.

Excellent Location and clean

Posted Jul 3, 2017
For a beach hotel , this hotel was clean and room spacious. Nice size fridge which came in handy for snacks n drinks. Maid service was quicker then other places I been at. Very good restaurant and nice tables to sit grab a drink outside with great ocean view. So so many choices to eat and drink within walking distance. For families and couples. Would definitely stay here again.

Perfect location

Posted Jul 1, 2017
Location couldn't be better. The pool is a great convince and great break from the beach. Beds are terribly uncomfortable and bathroom is tiny. Would come back for the pool and convience of the hotel providing beach chairs and umbrellas and being right on the boardwalk was perfect. Hope they can make some room enchantments for the future
