Verified Reviews of Maui Sands Resort

Below are the verified reviews from guests that we have booked recently:
Overall Score1.0/ 5
Poor upkeep, understaffed, sink backed up and parking lot a mess with limited parking. Of most concern is the fact that remote hall way doors to the outside were NOT LOCKED! There were ceiling leak marks in both rooms. Some people waited more than two hours in line for check in. The evening staff working the ice cream stand were rude, slow and one was drinking a beer. The girls with us wanted to play games but unfortunately the front desk nor anyone had any quarters. Yelling at everyone no quarters were available. This was the worst hotel I have ever stayed in. In the water park area, some people were using the lazy river, slides and all the rest of the area in their CLOTHES, NO SWIMWEAR! That was disgusting.

"Did Not Meet Past Standards"
Overall Score1.0/ 5
There were a number of issues with our stay. We had a large group that consisted of six travel softball teams. Numerous rooms were assigned and when the parents had to request to be placed in a different room for many reasons. Rooms were not cleaned, remote control missing, and the number of beds in the room were not what was requested. One family even looked under the bed to try to find the remote control and found an empty water bottle, along with other trash hidden under the bed. These other issues extended to most, if not all, of the rooms. After the first night's stay, the beds were not made, the rooms were not cleaned, dirty towels were not taken and replaced with clean towels, trash was not picked up. This motel advertised having an indoor water slide. It was closed off for the second night and we were informed that it was due to have having enough life guards on duty. When we went to check out on Sunday, the computers were down and they were not able to print out a receipt and did not offer to send one. We have stayed at this motel the past two years and none of the issues mentioned above were experienced in our stay. It is highly doubtful that we will consider returning.
