Every thing clrane,staff and etc.
This has nothing to do with the hotel, but the traffic on Highway 1 was terrible at times.
It was wonderful to walk the beach each day and sometimes almost have the place to ourselves. Beautiful hotel, staff excellent, bed very comfortable. Very clean.

Room too hot no ac
I forgot my cell phone and the staff was quick to contact mr
Queen beds, junior suite not needed.
Bath shower water temperature inconsistent.
Comfort of the bed and location proximity to beach.
The room smelled musty. The facility was outdated.The front door entered into the bedroom rather than the living room, and with travelers walking by and thin walls, it made it a bit noisy For sleep.
Location and the apartment feel of the room. The kitchen was large and well equipped. Very easy beach access and a nice and caring staff.
It was a good location. Close to a beautiful beach, and a great little town to visit. We enjoyed our stay and will be back.
We were in & out!
wifi was spotty
The beds were very comfortable and the breakfast was super. The gal working inthe breakfast room was very friendly and professional
No ocean view.
Spacious room with amenities.
Had 2 rooms booked and they were at opposite ends of property
WiFi kept cutting out.
The pool and hot tub.
you have too much rain!!!!Ha
breakfast area felt a bit roadstop otherwise it felt as if it would have made a good base for a few days.
short walk to beach. room (suite) layout though only there one night. pool being worked on so discounted price at checkin without be asked.
Ants in the room and our heater didn't work.
Nice breakfast included in a remodeled banquet room. Very nice touch. The hot tub and common area was clean and perfect after a day at the beach.
Breakfast was not so good. It was included in the price, but not a lot of options. Lots of bread items.
I loved the location-tucked away in a little beach town, adjacent to the beach. Quiet neighborhood. Beautiful property, with pool, jacuzzi and separate garden-like, smoking area. Suite was very nice and clean. Friendly service.
Walls are very thin.
Convenience of location & the breakfast buffet options.
The water pressure in the tub/shower was so high i felt terrible wasting water during drought. It would be great if there was an option to use less pressure :)
The staff was great. The room was perfect for us-- we chose to all 3 sleep in the king bed in our suite, and the living area/kitchen was perfect for all our needs! plenty of space, nice balcony too, looking out to the pool area (which looked excellent). We were so disappointed that it was the week work was being done in the pool, but they gave us an excellent discount. The beach was soo close and we had a great time.
The bathroom was on a little small and there was no vanity for stowing your belongings (only a pedestal sink). We had the family suite but there weren't enough dressers and the only closet was in the kids' room. There didn't seem to be much insulation between the rooms so we could hear a lot of noise from the guests above us, though I don't think they were doing anything out of the ordinary.
We came to Rio Sands for a weekend at the beach and the location couldn't have been better! The staff was courteous and there is a very nice banquet room with lots to choose from for breakfast (cereal, Belgian waffles, muffins, toast, fruit, etc.). Although we didn't do any real cooking, the kitchen looked well stocked with plates, utensils, pots and pans.
room had many broken parts hairs in our beds...unclean feeling
location staff friendliness parking
I like the coziness and being near the beach!
Great location. Safety and comfort. Rate was very reasonable.
The hotel staff were friendly and responsive to our needs. Location a 5 minute walk to the beach, Santa Cruz is just a 15 minute drive north which was great for dining. This hotel was just great!
