Our toilet kept backing up. We got a plunger from the front desk and had to use it a few times.

I liked that there was a sun deck, but the area in general was in disrepair. It's been a rough year for the hospitality industry though, and I'm sure they're doing their best.

Hey there Anonymous. About our 'crap hole'. Its anything but. We never got any visit to the front desk, or a call, or anything about your one bed but, your fridge not working and we comped you to take you and your family to a beautiful facility just down the street. If this is your worst experience ever, you must walk on clouds.

The tolite didnt flush all night long i had to use buckes of water to get the pee to go down and the finishing in the bath room wasnt done and there was no trash bags in the garbage there was no tissue and the tissue box the calking in the jet spa was not finished and we had people / living guest smoking and talking outside our door from 7 a.m. until 8 a.m. . that room is definitely not worth $175 a night

Hello and thank you for your Anonymous feedback! Several hotel staff went in after you checked out: The TOILET did and does flush. VERY sorry about empty tissue box as we did give you two full boxes as requested. The calking is worn but finished and does not leak. VERY sorry about your noisy neighbors. Go figure. on Valentines day too!

The amenities listed on the Sands as well as Travelocity’s website included an indoor pool, sauna and hot tub. Non were working when we showed up. Very disappointing, as that was the only reason we booked with them. They wouldn’t refund our money, when clearly, the amenities were actually not included in the price of the room.

Hi I am sorry if you had a bad experience here. The pool is in fact working you just thought it was to cold as you told the desk person. And we do have a sauna it is just down for maintenance at the moment getting it ready for summer and we are in the process of purchasing a new Hot Tub for the guests as well.

I liked that the hotel is very close to the convention center. I was there for a convention and did not want to drive far to get there daily. The Sands is an old hotel, the outside looks very run down and scary. Since it is at the ocean I know upkeep is hard so they are doing what they can. The room was fine, clean comfortable, no AC though but we knew that ahead of time and brought a fan. The trip was great. The indoor pool was just redone but we did not use it or the outdoor pool.

This place was clean and had a great staff. The hot tub and Sauna wasn't working. Wi-Fi didn't work in both our rooms. The TV's didn't work in both rooms too. I was there to see the beach and take some down time in the evening in the sauna or hot tub. So the TV thing didn't bother me at all really but not having Wi-Fi ,sauna or hot tub was a real downer. You are on the beach and if you get on the third floor you have some great views of the Ocean.
