The views were amazing

The positives: we had a king size bed, a large size room with a table and 2 chairs, a refrigerator, microwave and sink. The bathroom was also large with a large jetted tub. There was also an outside balcony which was a nice option. The negatives: Hotel would not let us into our room a minute sooner than 4pm even though we had reported our arrival at 12noon. As soon as we were able to gain access to our room, my husband attempted to do some work and found that there was no WiFi in the room. He reported this immediately and management did send someone to investigate who did validate there was no WiFi. Unfortunately the gentleman said "I really don't know how to fix this" and the issue was never corrected nor were we compensated. I was excited to use the tub, however when we reported to management that there was no stopper to keep the water in the tub (on the evening of our arrival), no-one ever showed to resolve this issue. The next morning I attempted to use the Hamilton Beach coffee maker and found it was left dirty with an old used coffee pod never removed from the prior use.

The staff was completely helpful the hotel was clean overall a great stay

The hotel is right on the beach and our room had an ocean view balcony. Doesn’t get better than that!

We had a very pleasant stay at Drifting Sands. Great location right on the beach, friendly and helpful staff, beautiful view even on the first floor. Will definitely visit again! Thank you Drifting Sands for the rejuvenation weekend away!

Great location, friendly staff. Incredibly overpriced rooms for what you get. Outdated rooms. It's cheaper to stay at the Bellagio

The Premium Ocean Front Rooms are worth the money! Check in and Check out was easy. The customer service at the front desk could have been better.

Right at the beacH very comfortable room and clean

Wifi didnt "reach" our room. Otherwise, it was great, no issues or problems. We were even able to switch rooms after realizing we could not see the beach due to the dunes. So we went from the 1st floor to 3rd.

Staff was very friendly! Room was super clean and big!

The beachfront building is awesome. Private balcony. I kept the sliding door open all night long and listened to the waves! Its a busy area...but near the hotel is quiet especially that building. There's a mini sink with fridge and microwave. I brought my own kcup coffee maker..they only have a little drip one. Very comfy bed and pillows! Towels were a little scratchy..maybe bring your own. Very nice!!

Beautiful balcony view of the ocean friendly helpful staff. Anything you need is within walking distance

I am sorry you encountered some problems that were not addressed, we did loose electricity from a storm that day and things were a little hectic, but our website clearly says check in time is 4 pm, even though you say you reported 12 that only means we try to do our best, never a guarantee.
