    Sands maintains the charm it had back when it was built in the 1950’s. The motel room feels more like a cottage, which gives it a nice summery feel. This quiet, well-maintained motel is very clean and comfortable. Service is exceptional here. We were greeted by friendly staff and a beautiful Siamese cat!There was no hot water during our stay, however, the friendly owner felt terrible and even offered to comp us a room or upgrade us to another area hotel.

    Rooms include your standard amenities: cable TV, air conditioning, refrigerator, and microwave. Efficiencies and apartments both include a fully equipped kitchen, which is perfect for those staying more than a few days and looking to save a bit on dining out costs. Apartments also include a second TV, dining area, and a sleeper sofa. The efficiency rental was plenty big enough with a nice laid-back cottage style design. The room was clean. The kitchen was a nice bonus, although we didn’t need to use it during our short stay. In addition, there are plenty of extra comforters and blankets if you get cold easily.

    Rates are very affordable, especially for families looking for a budget friendly vacation. Although you are not staying in one of the trendy boardwalk hotels, you still have access to a great beach. Take the money you save and stay a few additional nights. You will enjoy the peace and quiet at Sands over a noisy hotel on the boardwalk. Now that sounds like a true vacation! Rates vary depending on season and type of room booked. Winter rates can range from a low of $39 to a high of $89. The most pricey rates occur during the prime summer period (July 3rd-August 18th) where the Queen Rooms start at $97 and the 2nd Floor apartments come in at $195.

    Sands is the perfect place to bring your family for an affordable family vacation. A friendly staff goes a long way in adding that extra touch to make your vacation more special. The swimming pool combined with direct access to a public beach makes this motel a perfect summer choice in Fenwick Island.
