Beachfront White Sands Resort Motel
Ranked #11 of 11 Hotels in North Truro
Reviewed 8 July 2013

Overpriced, old, and dirty room with a bad odor and something that looked like mold growing in it! Cobwebs and bugs in the room! Hotel is not newly renovated as advertised on the website. Do yourself a favor and do not stay here!

My family and I have been vacationing at Whites Sands for years. We love the relaxed atmosphere and family focused value. We bring our two daughters and our dog every year. The kids love the option of outdoor pool, indoor pool, Jacuzzi or ocean. And all of this is after we get back from going to the National Seashore to enjoy a day at the beach. The rooms are very basic, this is not the Ritz. The rooms are a little run down and there can be a bit of a musty smell. But the towels are clean and abundant, the sheets have always been clean and having a fridge, microwave, stove and kitchen sink in the room save us from having to eat out every meal. We bring some air fresheners, hooks for hanging towels and a power strip for our electronics. We love cooking on our little charcoal grill and making breakfast in our room. Vacation is what you make of it. We prefer to make the best of average accommodations and not to spend $1500.00 - $2500. for a week on the cape. We also love that we can bring our dog and not have to kennel her. This is a great little family run motel.

Room Tip: We book the efficiency which has a mini kitchen and allows pets. Water view is not important to us...

White Sands is a famliy run beach motel with charm. We love the heated covered pool if it rains and the second pool is large with plenty of cozy lounge chairs when the sun is out. They feature a relaxed atmosphere. We have stayed at Whte Sands every summer for 5 years. The rooms have always been clean when we stay so I can't speak to other reviews. The owners always worked with us to fix any issues we had with the room. We will be returning this summer to one of our favorite vacation spots. Peace, Love and Blessings to All.

Room Tip: Book a room with a stove and fridge if staying for longer than a couple of days.

great hotel with that cape cod feel. nice and relaxing atmosphere with plenty of parking. i recommend the rooms with a view as it adds more to the trip. ours had a refridgerator and a microwave with coffee maker. real nice to keep cheese and hot pockets etc to chow down with my cold case of beer. the cable tv was a great luxury along with the small table and chairs in the room. The beach is right in front of the hotel and the sand ran up to my room. nice pool and close to p town. we used the convernient shuttle bus that passes the hotel all the time .

Room Tip: front rooms with a view are great.

A $50 room that cost me $175. After checking in, and seeing the deplorable condition of this hotel, the grimy and cheap quality of the room, the soap in the bathroom that was no larger than a photo card from a camera, the duct tape on the air conditioner, the strong odor of insecticide in the room, and then looking out the "ocean front" balcony, which gave us a view right into the rooms nextdoor, and the hotel rooms nextdoor, the fumes from the charcoal lighter fluid at the BBQ downstairs, and the barking dog locked up 2 doors down, and the discussion that the folks 2 doors away were having with the manager about the fact that they had no power in their room.... we called every hotel in town until we found another room.

When we went back to the front desk to refuse the room and get a refund, we were told that "we just wanted to change hotels to be with our friends" and that they would not refund any of our money. When our bank tried to speak to the manager about the disputed charges, they claimed that there was a "bad connection" and then hung up on the bank representative.

I would not recommend this to anyone, for any price

We booked very last minute and as beggars can't be choosers, we booked 2 nights at the White Sands.
I have stayed in some basic lodgings in Asia and other parts of the world but never in a place that was filthy. I can live with a broken Tv or small rooms or basic furniture. However dirty accommodations are unacceptable. The bed side tables and other table were covered in something and when I wept them with tissue, the tissue was dark brown.
The shower was moldy and there was no shower head which meant you were blasted away. The carpet had not been vacuumed.

We had paid for 2 nights and left after 1. The guy at reception did not show any interest when my husband told him he needed to employ some cleaners. No refund was offered of course but not even an enquiry or an apology.

The sad reality is that the motel needs to make little effort as demand exceeds supply on the Cape in high season and idiots like me will still book as everything else is booked up. But I have learnt my lesson, I rather not go than stay in such places.

Only good thing is location right on beach.

Room Tip: I am not sure if the bigger sea view rooms are better but they seemed nicer

I am sorry you were dissapointed with the room, but I had told you when you called that it was
a basic room and obviously you are used to more upscale accommodations. We have those
too, but you called the last minute and there was nothing else available. The rooms you rented
on 8/10/12 have been rented on a continuous basis every night and we have not had any negative
comments about the older rooms on the property. The rooms are older but have been refurbished
over the last winter and they meet the needs of people who are on a budget. The person who
dropped off the keys at the front desk did not say anything about a refund . I wish you well
on your travels in the United States and a good return to Great Britain.

This was my first time staying here and will definitely return and stay here. The kids loved having the choice of being in the pool or walking down to the beach. The owners are nice and the staff was wonderful. Definitely will be back in September.
