Best hotel ever

Best (5.0 of 5.0 stars)
by written on July 29, 2012

We planned a bachelor party at the sands and had the best experience ever! It couldn't have been better. Chris is the best host and all the hotels in TC need to try and be more like him. Chris is the owner/manager of the Sands and is so customer oriented and always very mindful of making sure his guests are more than satisfied. Take the BS reviews about this place and shove them under the rug. If you want a place were you can be yourself and have a great time go to the sands.
Chris, I would like to thank you personally for being such a great host and stand up guy! :-)

Unique Quality: great views, best customer service in TC, best location, AMAZING STAFF :-D

Ab-sol-ute-ly the WORST EXPERIENCES eve-rrrrr!!!

Terrible (1.0 of 5.0 stars)

I wouldn't be so far as to brag about staying there at ALL! My best advise to you is to have a stay one night or two then leave, because the things that Chris fellow does will eventually (if the law worked as it should) cause that place to be "shut-down"!! Stayer-beware. I don't have to say much, but isn't it strange how a manager "parties" with the hired help and guest --coke! BTW CHRIS those types of mother/ daughter jokes aren't funny especially at a time like this... not so funny now huh mj?

There are also safety issues so if you do so happen to be desperate and sleep with this guy, "make him use a condom" there are under agers who work their (if you know what I mean ;) ;) oh, and please don't fall for this guy, he loves something way more then a human...coke

BTW, bring your own changing sheets and blankets....

CB-with the tan van!!

Unique Quality: place for tramps---that had it on the sign one wk, believe or not isn't that right Jes? ;/

Directions: beach property, blue...i think i haven't been back there in ages...maybe they're under new management, if not who knows what this "supposedly good" community has in store?
