Great place for a beach getaway
As always, our stay at Golden Sands was wonderful. This was my 4th stay there in a year. The service is impeccable. The rooms are clean and comfortable. We get a King and enjoy having a pullout sofa to sit on. There is also a microwave and small fridge and freezer. The view and the beach are unbeatable. There are plenty of restaurants and shops nearby. This is my go to place for a beach getaway, so happy they are there. They always let you check in once your room is ready. After a sold out night New Years Eve (we checked in New Years Day) we were still able to check in before 1pm. We got there a little after noon and the room wasn’t quite ready. They gave us a parking pass so we could stay parked and we had a wonderful lunch at the attached restaurant Ocean Grill. We got a call less than an hour later letting us know we could check in. I highly recommend Golden Sands!

Stay was over Thanksgiving with resident family. Room was clean and staff was friendly. Beds were too hard for my liking. It is an older hotel and a little dated but again, well maintained!
