This was our 3rd stay at the Sandpiper. We love it there, & would not stay anywhere else. The staff is always friendly, activities galore for all age groups, & you can't beat the view & the beach. We had a ground floor corner oceanfront room, the view was spectacular. We look forward to our next visit in the future!!!!

Very clean room, free of mold or febreeze smell. The beds are doubles and are okay. The pullout was uncomfortable but the rollaway helped very much (and it was at no charge). Daily fresh towels and beds made, a plus! AC worked great. Wifi NEVER WORKED. Small pools and lots of young children, so it wasn't ideal for adults with...

The curfew didn't seem to be enforced to strictly (they were made to go in around midnight) so I slept with ear plugs...

I love this hotel. Been staying here since I was a child, now I bring my children. It's not anywhere near fancy but it's great for kids. Lots of activities for them to do. Rooms could be updated, but they're nice enough. Lots of college kids drinking but we had no problem with them. I love the Sandpiper and will...
