This place was great. We were going for a quick overnight stay, and last minute. This was the only place that had rooms left, and when we called the lady- Carrie was extremely nice and helpful. I was a bit unsure because of the reviews I had seen, but I figured we aren't going to be in the room much,...

If you are looking for a fancy hotel room with a lot of ammenities, this is probably not the best option for you! The rooms are good size and clean. It is an older motel, there is no air conditioning and you have an actual key for the door. The location is AMAZING. You can walk to the beach which...

Nothing fancy but a good room for the price - found the front desk to be helpful. We would stay here again if we were visiting Huntington Beach.

Huntington Beach is a wonderful location and a brilliant place to spend some time if you love the sea (and surfing). This motel is located only a short walk from the pier and the central shopping plaza. In this case it really is a matter of getting what you sign up for. They are not posing as a luxury resort...

My wife and I had no reservations at all but everything worked out fine during our short stay in Huntington Beach. We checked several other hotels/motels in the area, some of them way inland, but decided to stay at Sun 'n' Sands because of the fair rate considering the excellent location. Friendly staff, safe, quiet, walking distance from the pier...

The Sun and Sands was recommended to me by a friend. After going online and reading some of review I debated about going. I am so glad I went! The lady at the front was amazing. I have a 8, 6 and 3 year old and they all loved her. She was extremely friendly and helpful.

This little motel is not a pretentious hotel but gee, it does the job. The on site manager, Carrie, works hard to please and accommodate her guests. We checked in for two nights, have ended up staying four, and would stay longer if we did not have to fly home. The mini suite we had...slightly larger than your normal double...

It was our second time there. We were visiting Los Angeles, and I talked my friends into going down there. We didn`t have a reservation, just showed up, but we got our rooms just fine. For a motel it has all the equipment you need. The rooms are a bit tight but you`re not spending much time in there so...
