Loved our room. Lots of space. 2 separate spaces not so crowded. Loved separate intrance, not having to go through lobby to get to the room. Will definitely stay again.

Helpful staff, great location, clean rooms. It was a good stay for me.

Check in was fine. Upon entering room, we noticed the carpets were very stained, had burns, dirty. One of our towels literally had dirt on it. The WiFi was impossible to hold a connection to, so my Zoom meeting was unable to continue/continued kicking me off. Water pressure was nonexistent. Overall, very disappointed with the stay. The ratings for this Inn paint a much nicer picture than the actual situation you will end up in. Very misguiding.

Room was clean, I felt comfortable. It was a decent for the time we were there. The only thing I had an issue with is parking. You if arrive at night you have to squeeze very tightly in between cars.

I like the cleanliness of the room. Great room! The internet, I had trouble with, I couldn't connect from room.

Quick weekend getaway. Missed out on the full breakfast due to Covid they had a smaller version. The wifi was a little off and on but over all the stay was nice and i would stay there again

Suite was what we needed as a family. Cleanliness was pretty decent. Rooms were a little dated and beds were a little stiff but overall what was expected at the price. Would stay again.

WiFi network terrible. Old furniture. Stretches everywhere. Sticky remote controls

The people working here were terrible. They said they would deny my room even though I paid in advance. I have never been treated with such disrespect and Lack of customer service. I rate this place -12

The Sandpiper lodge is an older motel. The cleaning and maintenance stuff is ver friendly and tries to keep things together. But on the other hand the reception stuff is not exactly welcoming, exactly the opposite..

Like: size of the room, location, breakfast, late check-in, some rooms have new interior. Dislike: noise of neighbors, too much plastic used @ breakfast

The Walls were so thin. The guy in the room next to us was coughing all night and it sounded like he was in the bed with us. The 2 bedroom suite only has one bathroom. Parking was an issue. Wont stay here again.

Booked from Orbitz but they did not send a confirmation or itinerary number so I called Orbitz customer rep to check but they said there is nothing booked in my account so I booked again and this time I got a confirmation and itenerary#. When I got to the motel, the staff said I'm double booked. I had to pay $200ish cancellation fee for the unwanted room so I ended up paying $600ish for 2nights in a motel. I blame Orbitz for this. Now for the motel: convenient location and generally quiet except for the noisy AC that kept me up the first night. Room had a smell and bathroom only had a shower but no bath tub, a microwave and small fridge. Parking is plenty and free breakfast have good coffee and egg omelettes.

It is a very nice neighborhood and walkable to various restaurants and groceries. The staff were very nice and helpful. The room was clean and decent. The outer wall was not sound-proof so you could hear people walking by your door and window, but no problem at nights. The breakfast was also good with choice of breads, fried eggs, cereals, and fruits.
