“Solid, beachfront lodging”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 25 August 2013

My wife and I stayed here for a weekend this summer, and it was terrific. I was very worried about staying here because of the reviews, but we found it perfectly clean. The location, by the way, is terrific. It's outside Provincetown (about an 8 minute bike ride), which means it's quiet, and it's beautiful: it's right on the beach, and each apartment has a private balcony. It's less expensive than staying in town, and it's worth it. Not the best place ever, but not the worst, either. We liked it, and we'll likely go back.

Motel beyond rundown, scary on many levels. Myself and my traveling partner ended up with mold infections( 2 completely health people ) The smell in the room was so bad, bed stunk! Never again. This place needs to be closed down. This is the first review I have ever written.

we had a family wedding in Provincetown in mid-July. we needed a place to stay for 2 nights convenient to Ptown that wasn't outrageously expensive, or already sold out, or had a longer minimum stay required. i was leery of White Sands due to other reviews, and only agreed to stay here because a family member had done so in the past. we had a 2 bedrm/1bath unit--- queen bed in good-sized main room, and 2 twins in the smaller room. the only a/c was a window-type unit in the smaller BR that had to blow out into the main room also. you couldn't close the doors to the small room, or no air would get to the main room. small room had peeling wallpaper in spots, and older carpet. main room had newer carpet. the mattresses looked new, but were not covered w/ mattress protectors. pillows were old and stained-- no protectors on them either. (glad i brought my own.) some of the sheets/pillowcases had old stains on them--- you could tell that they'd been laundered, and the stains were old, but still --yuck! the tub/shower surround looked fairly new--- no dirt or mold, thankfully. towels were clean, unstained, and of decent thickness. the only "toiletries" provided were tiny soaps. the main room had a table/chairs, a mini-fridge/freezer and a coffeepot; however, no coffee! the rooms were clean, just old. enjoyed the outdoor pool, which was clean. beach was full of seaweed, so didn't spend much time there (we were there for a wedding, not a true vacation.) the best thing about this place is the location-- easy drive into Ptown, or the shuttle stops right on Shore rd---$2 each way. i wouldn't want to spend a "vacation" here, but it met our needs for the 2 nights. i think we may have been lucky with our room showing some recent updates (the carpet and mattresses)--- i have no idea what other rooms were like. i vacillated between "poor" and average" on my overall rating of this property; if there had been a "below average" choice, i would have picked that.

We spent 4 nights at this motel last week. The location is good with direct access to the beach on the bay side, two swimming pool in good conditions. The room was just OK and the price too.

BUT, BUT, BUT, This motel needs urgent renovations and it doesn't seem that the management wants to do it. There is everywere a bad smell. If I can make a suggestion, get rid of all the carpets everywere and also repair the balconies, someone will get hurt soon.

I DO NOT RECOMMANDE THIS PLACE!!!!!!!

Room Tip: Ask for a ocean view

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.
