It’s nice at the Sandpiper
Fine, no problems although the place definitely need some more electrical outlets. The only plug was against the far wall near the floor and it was so far away I never heard my phone go off… Otherwise easy access, beds were comfortable, place was clean.

Great Place to Stay!
Stayed here overnight while moving my son home from college. Great place, adequate breakfast. My only comment would be their pillows are hard as rocks! Super clean though!

Good value
Good value for the money. Only problem was neighbor next door continually going in and out slamming the door.

Room was upgraded when we arrived (don't know why but appreciated). Staff was friendly and everything was clean and in good shape. Not at all fancy, but comfortable. Same with breakfast.
