10/10 Exceptional

Great location / Outstanding staff
What a nice older motel. The location is fantastic. The staff is outstanding. Of course, it's an older place, and the bed wasn't luxury, but we slept well. Our unit had a window AC so it's quite noisy, but when you go to the beach, you don't sit in your room anyway! As a bonus, they have a few common balconies where you can eat your take-out meals with views of the ocean and boardwalk. I was surprised that there was no coffee maker or iron as that's something one normally sees. There are also only a few outlets just like any other older place. We unplugged the microwave to set up a laptop. Free parking so close to the beach will save you $20 daily. 10% of at Auggie's for breakfast is a nice benefit. We will definitely return and bring a French press and electric tea kettle to have coffee in the morning. We will also bring a small extension cord to be able to charge multiple devices.

Budget Motel With Great Location
PROS: Location, Staff friendly, our room was clean and updated, free parking, price within budget, pet friendly. CONS: Beds were uncomfortable and noisy, A/C was loud but worked, WIFI unreliable, parking is tight but they do have overflow lot across the street, no pool, pet friendly if you are allergic, no elevators. Overall 3.5 stars. This is a great motel if you are on a budget or if you just needed a place to sleep for one night. If they make improvements such as replacing bed mattresses and changing to queen size and improving WiFi, i would give them another star.
Double beds. Mattresses were noisy and umcomfortable. They should get new mattresses and upgrade to queen size. This would get another star rating from me.
Bathroom was updated. It is on the small size but nice.
Room did have a mini fridge and microwave. We didn't try out the microwave but the fridge worked to keep our water cold.

The Coral Sands is always a great, clean bargain
The Coral Sands is always a great bargain for very clean and updated rooms. The bed was comfy, the shower was wonderful, and the table by the window was great. And it’s only about a block off the beach!! It’s always a joy to deal with Greta as well.

8/10 Very good

We asked to move to a room with a softer bed. The move they allowed us was to a 3 bdrm house. The bed was softer and the rooms were spacious. Our only complaint was the couches in the LR area were sofa beds. Every time we attempted to sit on them the cushions sank into the bed area and gave NO support for sitting. Both couches did this. Other than the couches the place was great.
