Old and rundown room
Our room was terrible. We stayed for one night as we booked a condo for a week and wanted to arrive before rental traffic. I would never stay here again and plan on trying to get a refund. We paid almost $600 and the room was very run down. I took numerous pictures and am hoping hotels.com will see the quality of the room and offer some type of reimbursement.
KELLY, us1 night family trip
Fair 4.0
Not what the pictures show
Location is good. Building I was in was old, needed a lot of work, paint, and many upgrades. Old pistachios were left scattered in a cabinet. Tells me it's not cleaned thoroughly. Times are tough, but could be a great place with a full renovation.

Nice stay at Drifting Sands Hotel
The hotel is right in the beach which is great! The room was clean, had refrigerator and microwave. There was a side view of the beach, which was nice. Staff was friendly. Overall enjoyed my stay and would return.

Location...
Aside from the location, the place was nothing as featured online. We booked the economy double bed room which showed it had a table, it had no table. We had to eat on the bed. It also didn’t include a coffee maker, phone, hair dryer, iron so bring those if you think you’ll need them. The toilet also didn’t flush, the chain was broken. Since we didn’t want anyone coming in our room while we were out we just dealt with it ourselves and had to pull the chain every time we went to the bathroom. The staff was friendly and like I said before, the location, it’s right on the sand. But I don’t think I’ll book this place again.

Great local getaway
We booked one of the beach view rooms on the first floor, and it was lovely. Nice and clean (although considering it's COVID times, we did our own once-over with cleaning spray when we got there), the balcony was really nice to sit on, the beds were comfortable and the location was primo.

Trip by the sea
It was good. Room could have been a little bit more newer. But over all was good

Poor 2.0
Section 8 housing is better then these suites
Rented a suite for a family beach vacation, I dont know where the pictures from the website came from but they sure aren’t from any of the suites. Section 8 housing is cleaner and in better condition then what we stayed in. I would have left if I had another option but everything in the area was booked up. Definitely not worth the money that I spent, would never stay there again. Stay away do not book a room from this resort, the pictures on the website must be filtered so much you think you’re getting a 9 and a crack head shows up. Run away as fast as you can, I wouldn’t use the kitchen or any items in the rooms.
