This is the Keys! I've been living in South Florida for the past 25 years and for the past three or so the White Sands has been our vacation spot. The whole family loves this place and the staff there will bend over backwards to help make you comfortable.

The White Sands Inn is a gem. It's a little place, on Grassy Key, not far from the Dolphin Research Center. We have gone there 3 summers in a row now and love it more each time. The owners are very laid back and very accommodating. This year they even upgraded us - we loved this room even more than...

We had a great time here. We stayed 2 nights and it was about what we expected. We stayed in room 5 and had a beautiful view from our door. Yes, low tide was a little smelly, but not all that bad. My 13 year olds loved exploring low tide sand bars right off the dock (a bit mushy the...

We arrive at the white Sands Inn and had to check our shelf’s in as there were no staffs to greet us. We find our room after walking around and find Rm 1. We were so disappointed to find the room smell and had not been decorated in many years, the door blinds were broken and after asking the owners...

This place was one of the few motels close to Key West over Memorial Day holiday that allowed dogs and the price was very cheap. I expected it to be you're typical "get what you pay for" place. Boy was I amazed. This place is adorable!! The room one one of the cleanest rooms I've ever been in and appeared...

My husband and I stayed for three nights at the end of April/beginning of May. First, let me say that it would take a LOT of bad to ruin a vacation in the Keys. We had a fabulous time. I was pleased with the room itself. It was clean, updated, breezy - rather lovely in an understated way. I also...

We had a great place before coming here so our expectations were a little skewed but I'll try to be as objective as I can. The biggest thing we noticed was the tides. Our stop prior to the White Sands was on the bayside which is not affected by the tides. Unfortunately for us, the tide cycle was such that...

Not as advertised. There is a minuscule beach but this is really a third rate hotel that is right on the highway. They take all your money up front to ensure that you cannot leave. When my husband and I wanted to check out, there was no one in the office. In fact I never saw a staff member. The...
