The HeyDay restaurant is truly outstanding. Go there if you dont have a car. Meal credit is very good.

There is no available parking at the hotel, although they falsely claim there is, there is not. Very inconvenient to park somewhere a block away @ $50/night

The location is great and the staff is friendly. There is no elevator and we were on the third floor but they had staff to help us get our luggage to our room and back down at check out. My Travelzoo deal was exceptional. I hope there is a similar deal in the future!

The staff at the White Sands really made our experience superior. The facility is older but well maintained and updated. The rooms were large and comfortable. The location was excellent.

Our only challenge was the disco party held at the HeyDay bar one evening, which took over the entire facility and which we had no notice about other than a note taped to the front desk the morning of.

Absolutely wonderful hotel. A charming, peaceful (but fun!) gem that was perfect for us. Everything, from the great service, to the retro decor, and the well-appointed room exceeded our expectations. Location works if you want to spend time at the beach during the day, and the hotel offers complimentary beach chairs that you can use. That said, I think the best part of this hotel was when you arrive back after a day on the beach, you’ll find retro tiki or Hawaiian music, an awesome vibe at the bar and overall just an authentic Hawaiian experience. We will be back!
