If you want to have all your belongings robbed or your car vandalized, this is the place for you. My family stayed here for 4th of July for 2 nights and stayed in one of their suites. 2 rooms (side by side) down the hall from us got robbed on our first night while our car, which was parked infront...

We try to get away at least once a month. The Sands is one of our favorite places to stay. Once we watched whales from our room, many beautiful sunsets too. The pools and hot tubs are nice. I have breakfast and check my email in the morning. It is easy to walk the dog. We enjoy watching the many...

I just got off the phone with a woman named Roberta, who claimed to be the General Manager. Over the past year, between myself, family and business associates I have spent in the area of $1000. True it is old and not well kept, but the price is right and the service was always reliable. I called last tuesday and...

I have found that they provide excellent service ever since I have been going there for 8 years. The locality is perfect, I can walk everywhere that I need to get to.

Over the past 5 years I have gone to Ocean 5 times. Everytime I stay at The Sands. I check prices of other hotels.

We keep coming back to the Sands because they treat us like family. My boyfriend and I have stayed here about 6 times in the past year & a half. We prefer an ocean-view smoking king with a kitchenette, and we've gotten it for as little as $59/night (winter weekend). We usually stay two nights... go out on the town...

I recently took my family down to Ocean Shores for a weekend getaway. I was expecting to spend alot of money on a room after calling several of the chain hotels. It was to my surprise that The Sands was able to cut me a deal totalling over $80 off the regular rate, which was $100 cheaper than all the...

I have stayed at the Sands for the past 9 years, every March we go. I LOVE the sands. The value for your dollar is worth it. They have a pool for my kids and I to play in. The "continental" breakfast leaves something to be desired, and definatly bring your own water, or buy a big jug of it...
