Absolutely horrible…those words are not strong enough to describe Sandy Point Beach Resort in Alton Bay, NH. It is probably THE worst place I’ve ever stayed at in my life. First of all, this place is no resort by any means. It’s a motel with cabins on the property. A group of us rented quite a few motel rooms and one so called “apartment”. What a dump! We would not have stayed there had we known how bad it was, but we searched Trip Advisor for a review and couldn’t find anything. There are no other motel/hotels on that side of Lake Winnipesaukee.
My first impression was that I was in some time warp from the 1950’s (not a good one either). Our rooms looked like they should have been in some low budget horror flick. Scary!!! The furnishings were something you’d buy at a yard sale. The place was old, musty, dusty (cob webs) and downright gross! God forbid if it were hot because you could not use the A/C as the window curtain blocked it – of course you could use the AC if you kept the curtain open and if you don’t mind people passing by your room, staring at you in bed. The door to our room was made up of a piece of smoked thin plexi-glass and if you tapped too hard – it would easily break. The toilet was broken in one of the rooms and apparently the hotel owners may have thought “just stick your hand in the tank and pull the lever… it flushes!” The bathroom soap holder was made out of aluminum foil (I’m not kidding) and good luck if you got a room where the door actually locked.
The highlight of our stay was the ever-lingering smell of SKUNK! We peered over the edge of the rail outside our room to see a huge metal cage with a cooked lobster inside for bait. The bottom line is that no matter how good of a price you’re getting, there are some places not worth staying at.
The only positive thing I could say is that after the initial shock of how awful the room was, the first thing we did was check the mattress for bed bugs and thankfully the bedding was clean and we did have clean towels.
