Bed was comfortable and room is large. Checking in was very difficult with a prepaid room. Checked us in to an occupied room!!! Next room, plumbing in sink and shower backed up . Would have canceled and checked out but can't get thru on customer service lines

We liked almost everything. The major drawback (which is relatively minor) is that some of the furnishings seemed dated. However, everything was in good working order and was clean. The staff were very helpful and courteous. The continental breakfast offered surprisingly a little more than we expected. Sandpiper Lodge is an excellent value!

This was an okay place to stay for the price. The carpet was dirty and looked like it needed a good cleaning.

Wasn't anything special to like. first thing they did I don't like is to charge my cc 2 days before my check-in, it was not disclosed that this was going to happen, the doors only had one lock, bed was like sleeping on a rock and the pillows were so thick and solid there was no way to get comfortable, needless to say I did not sleep well. The breakfast was not worth them even mentioning it existed.
