"Staff great , Mold yuck"
We stayed at the Atlantic Sands for some r & r by the beach. The location of the hotel is fantastic! We enjoyed the great view of the beach, the sound and spray of the ocean ( yes, it's that close !) and the staff , especially Debbie at the front desk, who was efficient, professional and hospitably welcoming. The huge drawback is the mold that is creeping […] under every seam of the wallpaper. Had our trip not been so short, and that we were in the room just to sleep, we would have requested a room change. To be fair, the west wing of this hotel has just undergone a major renovation and the sample board behind the desk promises more to come. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"The 4 day Stay"
everyone very friendly, being the off season we would have liked to have checked in before 4:00. A couple checked in ahead of us got there room right a way, that was at noon time but we were made to wait till the 4:00 check in. I understand that is normal checkin time , but they wern't busy. We did have a great time and would stay there again.Genuine Expedia guest review
"Atlantic Sands for fun and relaxations."
The staff members were very friendly and helpful. We asked for suggestions for a restaurant and found it excellent. They always greeted us when we came and went. They made our stay more enjoyable, even though the weather wasn't the best.Genuine Expedia guest review
Was not happy with oceanfront 1st floor room.Complained to management and room was switched right away. Great customer service....Genuine Expedia guest review
The hotel was under construction with debris everywhere. Lights in the hallway didn't work... we got off the elevator to a completely dark 4th floor. Never seen that before. When we checked out the front desk lady asked, "How was your stay with us?". When I told her the truth of our disappointment she simply said, "Have a safe trip home." Don't ask […] if you don't care.

Would not give a 3 1/2 star. Stain on bed skirt,both wash cloths where not clean looking. Glad I brought my own. Dust on head board. House keeping was at the door at 9:10 am. People at the desk did not greet you when you walked by. Dead roach in main lobby when we checked out. Glad I did not see that when we checked in. Only stayed one night.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Weekend get away."
Great peaceful stay. Weather was good. Felt safe on boardwalk at night.Genuine Expedia guest review
The double beds in the room were too small for our family of 3 to share - hotels usually provide queen sized beds. The pillows were very thick. The hotel is old, and the corridor floors are a little uneven. The view from the balcony is great!Genuine Expedia guest review
"Great beach front hotel"
Stay was short and off season but very enjoyable It appears that hallways and common areas are in need of renovation.Genuine Expedia guest review
Very nice hotel, staff was very friendly, knowledgeable and helpful.Genuine Expedia guest review

"Is this a hotel or a library???"
This is the 2nd time we have stayed here recently with a group. We got a few rooms and at 7:00 pm we were getting ready to go out and talking all in my room....there was 6 of us....we were told to be quiet by the hotel because someone complained we were talking too loud. They told us they would move us to another wing of the hotel.....FOR TALKING....so […] we can talk as much as we want. This is actually the 2nd time we have had this happened because the people who stay here, as we were told by the front staff, want to go to bed at 8pm. This was off season for my girlfriend's birthday I can't imagine what it would be like in the summer when things are normally in full swing. Don't stay here unless you want to go to bed at 8pm and whisper as you walk through the halls at 7pm. The staff should have suggested the boring people sleeping at dinner time while on vacation be moved and not us. Never staying here again!!!!!! Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
Well Done! Try to return to The Seashore as often as practical and know exactly what to expect from the Atlantic Sands. Having no surprises while on vacation allows one to relax and enjoy the ammenities. Thank You!Genuine Expedia guest review
"great location, a little run down"
stay here every spring, it has a great view and is in a wonderful location. They are doing construction/renovating on parts and overall it wasn't that bad. Could definitely use some new beds they were worn out.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Nice Hotel, Awesome Location"
Nice, modest hotel in a great location. Get an ocean front room, if you can - it's great to sit on the balcony and watch the ocean and the people on the boardwalk. Whenever I go to Rehoboth, this is where I stay. Only drawback - no heated indoor pool for off-season visits.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
The best thing about this hotel is the location. Right on the boardwalk, but a block away from the main drag. The view from the room was spectacular. Other than that, it was very average. The water pressure (in the showers and toilets) was weak, and the shower temperature was difficult to maintain. The sliding door leading to the balcony did not operate. […] The beds were adequate. When we went, the restaurants and pool were closed. I don't think it's worth mid-season prices, but if I struck a bargain I'd consider it. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"weekend get away"
Hotel is in a great location with friendly staff. Rooms were clean but small. Some parts could used updated. Overall a decent place to stay for the money.Genuine Expedia guest review
"Great for a close Get-A-Way!"
My wife and I have vacationed at the Atlantic Sands for over a decade and will continue on with our loyalty in staying there. Trying to synchronize all that an ocean front resort is responsible for is a huge undertaking and they do a remarkable job serving vacationers from around the world. Well Done!Genuine Expedia guest review
Great place overall. Our room had an oceanview and a little patio to sit on. It's right off the boardwalk so the location is amazing. Beds and chairs were pretty comfortable. They had a microwave and a mini fridge which definitely came in handy. The bathroom was small but the shower had a curved shower rod so I was happy. I guess if I had to critique […] anything it would be that the shampoo/conditioner they provide is no good. So just bring your own and you'll be happy:) Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
The room was very small and the beds were extremely uncomfortable.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Great location at a good price."
Visited on a cold winter weekend. Hotel staff were friendly and helpful. Room is a bit dated and the mattress should be replaced immediately. Still, a good deal because of where it is located (center of boardwalk on the beach) and access to restaurants and downtown activities. Safe and reliable. Have stayed here many times in the past and will do so […] in the future. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
The front desk was very helpful. The moved us to a room that had heat, as our original room had issues. Also, they recommended places to go for breakfast each day, they were very good and affordable.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Good location thats all"
The mattress sets are so soft you sink i the bed. The most uncomfortable bed I ever slept in.Genuine Expedia guest review
"Off-season stay on the Boardwalk"
We made a first time visit to the Atlantic Sands in early January, however, we are quite familiar with the area. Overall, the hotel is basic and average. The room was a mini-suite and paired with the ideal location on the beach/boardwalk, the hotel would appeal to families and first-time visitors to Rehoboth who would want to maximize their time on […] the beach. However, the appointments and finishes in the room and lobby are rather dated and a bit dreary. When we arrived, the room was very cold with the thermostat turned to about 50. Obviously, the hotel did not prepare for our stay, and the room never heated to a "warm" temperature likely due to a inefficient heating system (it was a very chilly evening). I assume the AC in the summer would work better. I would recommend that the hotel invest in a major update, but otherwise, the room/hotel was adequate for a night.

"Changed hotels aftr 1 night. Location 5 Comfrt 1"
Traveling during Holiday break. Moved to another hotel in area after one night because we were not comfortable with room. The room carpet was wet in front of balcony door. The room was cold on arrival and heater didn't work great - either too warm or too cold in room. Dbl beds instead of queens and not very comfortable. Expected better for $.

"Atlantic Sands Hotel"
Location, location, location. This hotel is steps away from the Atlantic, just across the boardwalk. We had a lovely view of the ocean from our room and heard the surf at night. The room was shabby and the bathroom a bit moldy but the bed linens were clean. If you wish to be in the center of the boardwalk and close to the ocean this is your place. The […] ladies at the front dest were cheerful and very nice. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"Great place to stay and location is perfect"
Friendly and informative staff! Room was clean and had no issues.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Close to marathon"
the room was excellent. However, there was no place in lobby to buy snack or drink. Nor was there a place for breakfast. Perhaps, because it was off season those things were not available.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
we have stayed here before. The room is clean and spacious. The sheets and towels have that "institution" smell. The staff are friendly. Would come backGenuine Expedia guest review
The staff and location of the Sands can't be beat. It's clear that some renovation would improve this hotel dramatically. The carpeting throughout the common areas and in the rooms needs "a new one"! Also, the mattresses were very soft - too soft. I don't know if that was intentional or that they are simply worn out. But everything worked very well, […] the location was perfect and we had a great time. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
"Great rate post-season"
I spent my first visit to the Sands over Thanksgiving. I was very pleased by the experience - the front desk staff was courteous and helpful, the rate was exceptional for a beachfront room. Unfortunately, I didn't get a chance to dine in the restaurant. I had a room with two double beds - I really don't know too many couples that actually use a double […] bed any more, most have queens. However, the room was very comfortable. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
"OK BUT NOT FOR THE PRICE"
THE ROOM HAD WALL PAPER PEELING OFFTHE WALLS. THE CARPET HAD ALOT OF STAIN IN IT. KINDA OF A EYE SORE FOR THE PRICE. VIEW WAS GREAT OFF OF THE BALCONY. ME AND MY WIFE STAY THERE OVER THANKSGIVEN WEEK, WHEN WE LOOK ON LINE WE SEEN THEY HAD A BAR SO THAT WAS ONE OF THE REASON WE CHOOSE THIS HOTEL, AFTER GETTING THERE, WE WHERE TOLD THE BAR WAS CLOSED […] FOR THE SEASON. WALKING TO A PUB IN NOVEMBER CAN GET LITTLE COLD. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
I stayed in ocean view room, during the off season. The room was very nice, and I would stay here again.Genuine Expedia guest review
Perhaps the hotel functions better during summer months, but the service was nonexistent. From the moment I arrived to check in and was directed to the location of the carts so that I could transport my own luggage, I knew that this was not going to be a typical customer-oriented hotel. Those luggage transporters are not so easy to navigate! The few […] times I ever went to the front desk, the clerks were talking to each other and clearly viewed my question as an interruption that merited only a cursory response. The Internet worked for 4 hours over 4 days -- calls to the front desk resulted in no change. Since one of the days I was there was rainy, I looked forward to the spa that was advertised on the website. Turns out that is only on some weekends -- not something that was disclosed on the website. Looked great on the website, but was vey disappointing in reality. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
I was very disappointed as I heard from family members how nice your hotel was. I don't know if it was because of the hurricane Sandy or possibly because of the off season, but we were very much disappointed. We reserved two rooms one for my husband and myself and the other for my brother and sister-in-law. Their room was nice and cozy while ours was […] like a refrigerator. We did try and adjust the temperature with no luck. We were so tired by the time we went to bed we didn't care about it being cool but during the night we were freezing. I did not want to callthe desk as I was not about to change rooms at that time of night nor did I want anyone from maintenance coming to our room at that time so we stuck it out. We were all disappointed that there was not a continental breakfast offered. Needless to say I doubt we will return to the Atlantic Sands. I sincerely wish this review would rate your hotel higher but that just isn't possible. I will add, the gentleman at the desk when we checked in was very nice -- that's the best I can do, sorry.

"Great for the off-season if you need a $$$ break"
Staff was friendly; room was great, cozy, nice ocean view. Funny, kids staying in a nearby room were throwing marshmallows off the balcony! Little kids, minions ; - ) Great stay would go again...Genuine Expedia guest review
Our first bad impression was upon entering the old elevator and then getting off on the second floor to nasty old carpeting. We were very disappointed in the size of the room - too much crammed into it - not enough room between the beds and the dressers/desk area. We didn't realize that it would be 2 double beds either - we assumed queen - I think that […] should be made clear when booking the room. The refrigerator froze our sodas and one burst all over the unit. The ice machine was NOT convenient to our room on the 2nd floor - perhaps one could be installed on each floor. Since it was chilly, we would have gone in an indoor pool if one existed - or even just a public hot tub/sauna area aside from the spa area. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
Everything was fine; nice room and employees; there was a coffee maker in the room, which I found accomodating.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Always a great place to stay"
I love the Atlantic Sands! It's right on the boardwalk, only a block from the main strip in Rehoboth. It's a classic hotel with kitchenette, sitting areas, and balconies. The only problem I had this time was the beds were super soft. I'd recommend new mattresses. I don't think they were intentionally that soft.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Location: Great! Everything else: pretty good"
We basically booked the most affordable hotel we could find that put us ocean-front on the boardwalk. The location was awesome, and we could see the beach from our bed. If you go for this, though, try to get a room on a higher floor so board-walkers can't look directly into your room. There was a faint musty odor, covered up by a citrus-smelling cleaning […] product, that made us consider switching rooms. The bed was not comfortable - way too soft - with 2 people, you both get pulled to the center. All things considered, we got exactly what we paid for and expected, based on others' reviews. If you don't mind a less-than-perfect room, in favor of an excellent location/cheaper price, I'd recommend it. If you need perfect cleanliness and service, might want to try somewhere else.

Superb location (next to Boardwalk), quiet, clean, comfortable bed and room--plenty of clean towels. Trouble with WiFi in room and hallways pretty grubby and depressing.Genuine Expedia guest review
"Great Hotel on the Beach"
We had a good experience staying at the Sands Hotel because of the great rooms and the hotel location. The rooms were very clean, were spacious, had a small kitchenette, and the bed was very soft and comfortable. The only complaint that we had about the room was that the windows didn't open at all and the view out the window was of a house next door […] and you couldn't see much else. The hotel location was great in that it was directly on the boardwalk next to the beach and in a great location to walk to all the shops, bars, and restaurants in the area.

Very nice hotel and location, in general. The one negative was that the wifi service was poor. We and many other customers were forced to go to the lobby to access the Internet.Genuine Expedia guest review
