I did a lot of research on prices and fun activities close to the beach, before deciding to stay at Sands Resort at Ocean Shores. The price was great for myself and my four children to stay for two days. After our long drive, we arrived early, but to our surprise, we were allowed into our room, anyways. We had...

Yes, the hotel was cheaper than any other on the strip. After our night there we feel "you get what you pay for". We arrived, paid our $53 and dropped our bags to change into our suits (did I mention we had a 6 year old with us?). The room was FREEZING! I turned the heat up and the bathroom...

I didn't do my due diligence when making plans for this trip. The Sands promised a fireplace in our room. It was a lightbulb behind a picture of a fire. We stayed at the Sands because they advertised a pool. It was so scummy we were grossed out. The worst part was that the room smelled just awful and soon...

You just can't beat the price & location of the Sands. We've stayed here many times in the past 3-4 years and its starting to feel like home. From our experiences here, they treat their repeat customers as family. We discover something new about the resort on each trip. The motel is older and the weather has beat up the...

Arrived friday evening with many of the motels sold out. We always use trip advisor so we were apprehensive to try the sands. Room was clean and looked newly remodeled, they had two pool's so the kids were in heaven, free light breakfast, and to top it off I spent $50 less per night than last time we stayed in...

My kids and I have returned for our 3rd visit last week and we had a terrific time. We used to stay at the Gitchee Gummee down the road before they changed names. Then I looked at a few rooms at the Sands and found my new place in Ocean Shores. Good price + good view + pools & game...

Ok where to start. Me and my family, 6 adults and 3 kids, had planned a fun July 4th weekend stay in Ocean Shores since last year of 2009. None of us had ever stayed at the Sands. We just heard about it from other family members. Not necessarily good things, but that they had an ok experience. But let...
