    For a budget type motel this place is outstanding. Dear friend, for a fraction of the cost you are in the shadow of the $500 a night w Hotel! My room was inches from the very nice swimming pool, half a block from the beach. You are within walking distance of "Beach Place" a lively entertainment/eating spot with at least four bars on different levels all with lovely beach views. Nice staff, free parking. The place is old, but it is well cared for, and it has location, location.

    Shower was a bit dodgy.

    Good location, staff are helpful.

    Poor facility. No coffee/tea, no shampoo, noise from outside and next doors.

    The hotel is old but well equiped and clean, including a microwave and fridge in the room. The beach is just down the road, within easy walking distance.

    There was a mandatory extra charge for a safe but it didn't work, and we did not receive a refund.

    I liked the price, but most of all the location was fantastic. It was a simple motel but clean. It does need updating but has all the ammenities needed. It is not a place I would want to stay if I wanted to spend time at the motel. It is perfect however if you just want a place to shower and sleep. Again it was very clean but in dire need of an update.

    Stayed at Sandy Shores for two nights post cruise as we wanted a taste of Fort Lauderdale. Facilities perfectly adequate for our two night stay, excellent location for the beach and some local attractions (Galleria Mall, Las Olas Boulevard). Friendly staff, good value and excellent location.

    Noisy air conditioning unit.

    The location as well as price was well appreciated

    The ac machine was old therefore a bit noisy

    Free parking. Refrigerator in room.

    Disliked that we reserved at Sandy Shores based on website photos of courtyard garden & rooms, but ended up in the next door property "Seaside", a decaying old motel on busy, noisy street- part of "Sable Resorts", but not explained that's where "Standard Rooms" are until we got to office to check in. Disliked peeling paint, hot water heater covered with dirt in open closet, cracks in floor. Disliked small holes in walls & rusty sink/tub fixtures. Disliked yellow water from taps & threadbare towels. Disliked cigarette butts strewn around pool deck & full ashtrays lining the walkways to room. Disliked dirty upholstery on chairs & tiny TV with blurry picture. Disliked there was no headboard on bed. Disliked window blinds that didn't close completely & warped exterior door that let outside light/air/insects in. Especially disliked this property's 'bait and switch' online marketing.

    The desk staff were very friendly, helpful and warm. Location was excellent. Nice to have a fridge and microwave. The room was small but not really clostrophobic. Perfect for a one or two day stay. If longer then that - OK if on a very tight budget.

    The room had some (not much) rotting wood in the bathroom and rust on the taps despite being clean. I have to say that if a renovation were to take place, i am sure the price would go up; however, that being said, our stay would have been more pleasant had the room been painted and looked after a little better. Again though I must state - a good deal for the money.

    It was so close to Ft Lauderdale Beach.

    Lack of places to eat or get groceries close by as I did not have a car.CVS Is 10 min walk with groceres etc.

    Sandy Shores is centrally located, with easy walking to the beach, the shops, and several different bus stops. The room fit our needs as far as accommodations.

    The hotel is not what you see in pictures, so don't base choices on that. The rooms are small, but livable. Sometimes it is hard to get the room cleaned, but we brought in sand everyday anyway so we hardly noticed.

    The beautiful clean rooms and pool!

    Well the room could use a new facelift. The bathroom are very antiquated and the toliet seats are very old looking. Make the inside look as inviting as the outside.
