    Look, don't be expecting a 5 star hotel. This place is cheap, but it has an amazing location, clean rooms, kind staff, and was more than comfortable. I will be coming back again.

    The water smelled very metallic... but for a 2 night stay, it wasn't a huge concern. Everything else was lovely.

    We like older classic motels. I lived in Selbyville years ago and remember The Sands as a young child (1955). The staff was extremely cordial and accommodating. We enjoyed the microwave and refrigerator, and most importantly the pool! The beach is right behind the motel.

    The bathroom fixtures have a lot of sediment build-up. A little Lime-Away would spruce them up. We have never liked the smell of well water, but that's just us. The plants around the pool need attention at Summer's-end. A little paint on the exterior and a new pool shed would help with the "tired" look. The ice machine worked beautifully, but, again, looks mean a lot, and that machine is a rust-bucket.

    location was great just off the beach

    The bathrooms were gross, they are in need of major updates. The water smelled so bad of rust it was nauseating. The faucets and drains were all rusted and corroded, you didn't want to touch them and could not tell what was clean/dirty. The staff was not in uniforms so it looked like random people going through rooms when the maid service was going around. You could not tell who was supposed to be there and who was not anyone could have walked up and went through and open room and no one would have noticed.

    The room 'appeared' to be clean, bed linens, towels but carpet was dirty!

    The carpet needed a good shampoo, the bathroom was horrible, we called it 'retro 60's', it definitely needs some upgrades done. We wore shower shoes to shower cause it didnt feel clean, all the fixtures need to be replaced, the toilet broke while there but we just lifted the lid & pulled the stopper (we did tell the mgmt upon leaving)! Everything was plugged in to extension cords & operated with the one light switch (not a good thing), tiny light in bathoom which you had to turn on by hand (no light switch) & you could barely see even with the blind open, windows could use replacements too! No doubt this is a very old motel & needs several upgrades for us to stay there again! Maybe the apts & efficencies are nicer but I doubt that much, water pressure in shower was horrible if you want a sprinkler system, thats what you got! Front door was very secure, no chain to secure while in room, we had to walk around dog 'poo' to get to our room the whole week we stayed which was disgusting!! If others have to clean up after there pets then the motel owners should too!! We have traveled alot but this is probably the worst room we have ever stayed in, have already checked out other motels in the area for next year cause we wont be back here! Only good thing was it was closer to all the resturants in Ocean City & the casino.

    The room was very small. The bathroom was incredibly out if date and rusty pipes and shower head caused the water to smell to the point of gagging. We could not rinse after brushing teeth! We felt the need to wear shoes in the shower...simple updating would help a lot.

    Very close to beach and restaurants. Loved visiting with owners dog. Staff very friendly and helpful. Pool area was great for lounging around after a long day on beach.

    Desperate need of updating. No water pressure and bathroom lights poor. Great place for a few nights. Especially if your only there to sleep.

    Easy to get to and from my location I needed to get to. The bed was very good for me and my wife. The lady at the desk was very nice and helpful for us to get where I needed to go. My first time in the area.

    Bathroom was a little small and little water pressure with hot water.

    The location was perfect and the staff was more than accommodating to the guests needs.

    Room could have been cleaner and there was a horrible smell of rust in the water.

    The room smelled horrible, the showers had no pressure and took about 10 minutes for hot water.

    The staff were all very friendly and the pets in the office were very cute. The location is just a block away from the beach, which was amazing and it was on the beach side, so we didn't have to cross the street. It also has a nice retro look to it with the Sands logo on the motel.

    The one thing that really stood out to me was the housekeeping. The first night housekeeping took all our linens and then never replaced them. The next day they never came--our friendly lady who checked us in asked if we wanted room service, so we said yes. It literally was her making the bed and then leaving...All in all, room service seemed non existent especially when I had to go to the office and ask for toilet paper or towels because we had none. The place also does show its age, but is functionable and accommodating in your basic needs for the beach.

    Close walk to beach, fairly clean, staff was friendly.

    Disgusting hot water. Taking a shower was extremely unenjoyable due to the smell of rotten eggs. We couldn't get the smell out of our hair until we got home.

    The A/C unit was very noisy, Told staff, nothing was done. The water smelled like RUST!! It left a brown residue on the bath towels when we dried off. Left a brown residue on my white t-shirt the next day. Blind in the bedroom was too small for the window. A gap of approx. 2" on each side where people walking by could look right in. Other blinds had multiple broken slats Tiles in the kitchen were broken or missing. Overall, extremely disappointed with the facilities. Will never stay here again. Spend the extra $ and go elsewhere.
