I'm actually writing my review on the way back home because I just couldn't wait to give the Sandbox a great review.
For starters the staff is extremely friendly and helpful; very accommodating from the minute you book your room! The owner was such a nice guy and approached us several times to see how we were enjoying our stay. The Sandbox is one of the few motels that allows guests under 25 to stay and I was so happy that we weren't treated any differently and is also family oriented, which gives it a good vibe.
The rooms are well kept and clean, the AC was already on before we arrived - a nice touch. I definitely see the improvements that Shiv has been making and cannot wait to come back next summer to see all the additional changes. The pool area is large and super clean! It is cleaned on a daily basis and even though it closes at 11 pm, he doesn't kick anyone out if they are hanging out by the pool. We also used the BBQ grills on the deck and it gives the hotel a homey feeling. Not to mention that the owner, Shiv, held a bbq for all the guests - what a great guy!
Overall, my party of 4 defintely enjoyed our stay and we will be back next summer! Thanks Sandbox Motel.
Ps: I cannot believe the negative reviews on here.
