This increased annual visitors from 700,000 in 1978 to more than 33 million yearly. However some things have remained unchanged - like the boardwalk that is the heart of Atlantic city life, creating a scenic link between great Hotels, theatre and the Casino's. It is over ...
10'x15'... the past 5 years, 2 bedrooms and 4 floors of our home is now crammed into a one cinder-block cell, the mail has been stopped (doubt I'll miss it) and tenants who will be kindly paying our mortgage for the next 12months are now moved in and we're officially "homeless".
Bethany Beach is where we'll be calling home for the next few weeks, until we jump out on the road at the end of July.
I could think of worse places to lay-low for awhile.

Privot (you know, our noxious weed), appears to be cultivated here... there are hedges of it in many properties, and some have even made it to tree size. It is in full flower and affecting both of us with its pungent smell making our sinuses and eyes run.

Historical Traveler Reviews Atlantic Sands Hotel & Conference Center Rehoboth Beach
Great stay at the Sands
My family and I had a great stay at Atlantic Sands Hotel and Conference Center. We had a room that was right over the boardwalk! Believe me, you can't get any closer to the ocean than that! We found the staff very friendly and accomodating. The kids loved the ocean front pool and so did we. It kept us away from the crowded beach and still allowed us to enjoy the view. We really enjoyed the seafood buffet in the restaurant and the frozen drinks in the Tiki bar! We had a wonderful weekend here and we will definetely return.
This is where you want to go
The Sands is different from all the old & tired beach hotels in the area. Best of all it's right on the beach & boardwalk!
The ocean view, extremely pleasant staff, and option of the beachside pool made it a memorable stay. It has a cleaner, newer, slightly more upscale feel than the other local hotels in the area. When we come back, this is where we'll be again.
I chose to stay at the Atlantic Sands because they were one of the very few hotels in Rehoboth Beach that had a website. I like to be able to see where I'm staying before I get there. Their site also mentioned high-speed wireless Internet access, which is important to me since I need to work while on vacation :-( .
Great stay at the Atlantic Sands
My family and I stayed at the Atlantic Sands over Memorial Weekend. The ocean front room was well appointed and very clean. The kids loved the fact that the swimming pool was right off the room and while the ocean was pretty nippy, the pool was fine. The restaurant, The Atlantic Seafood Co., had a great seafood buffet and the breakfasts were very satisfying. We fouind the front desk was very helpful in giving us directions for bike rentals and ice cream stores. We would recommend this hotel as a truly family oriented place to stay.
OK, I've read some of the previous reviews so I thought I'd put my 2 cents in. My family and I stayed here the 2nd to last week in Aug. '03.
Better than most for the price
Checked prices for the other beachfront hotels at Rehoboth and found this to be the least expensive and it has a pool, sometimes you dont want to deal with the crowded beach. Wont find the beach any less crowded unless you walk to the end of the boardwalk, where there are no hotels. Closeby the amusement area for the kids and great shops for the adults. If you want convenience, this is by far the best value. Good luck finding anything on the beach under 150.00 a night, especially with a pool. Rooms arent the Hilton, but who spends much time in the room anyway.
To whom it may concern,We wanted to stay at your Hotel after reviewing your brochures. We made reserations over the phone requesting an Ocean front view overlooking the Beach. After arriving there the roon we were given had no balony and no Ocean front view. We called the front desk and told them of this problem and they then put us in another room which and a half of a balcony and a view of the hotel and parking lot across the street.( We took pictures) But We took it anyway.........unbeknownst to us that Truck driver make there deliveries there in the morning and we had to hear the back-up beeping of the trucks and the idiling of engines which woke us up early. The worst part was the fumes from the exhaust sysem coming into the room.
Sands is a dump
Stayed at the Sands Hotel (more like a motel) in Rehoboth for a few days in mid august '03 (Just got back). Bait and switch with a promise of ocean front, upon arrival got a ocean "view" room. No changes allowed. Old small bathroom, leaking toilet, chipped and pealing paint. Porch had one chair and was getting a leak from floor above. Nice location on the Boardwalk, but beach out front is SMALL AND CROWDED. Seafood restaurant in hotel had good breakfast buffet. Nice pool overlooking boards, beach and ocean. Stay here only if its your last resort. (No pun intended as this is NO resort.)
We just returned from our stay at Atlantic Sands. The best thing about this hotel is LOCATION! It's right on the boardwalk and walking distance to shops, dining, etc.
The hotel was undergoing some renovations, which resulted in unsafe balconies (no warning and we had small children), non-stop noise and the added treat of having mouthy workman just outside our 4th floor balcony sliding door at 7 a.m. The desk people were (with one exception) generally disinterested and unhelpful, the maids were most interested in skirting their jobs (one asked if we needed anything--we said "towels"...she took this asa cue not to make beds or do any other work in the room. ) Worst of all, we left a child's (brand new) bathing suit in the room and although we called immediately, the hotel told us it was never found. Repeated calls and e-mails were ignored. So in retrospect, I'm annoyed we stayed there and paid full price and were treated like the "practice" guests for the summer tourist season. The pool was not open yet, even though the one across the street was open...the restaurant was also closed. On the plus side, the location, right on the boardwalk, is great and the kids (oblivious to service problems) loved staying there. I was hoping for more though and would probably not stay there again.
