Home Away From Home: A Sand Hotel in Weymouth

The world's first sand hotel was recently constructed on Weymouth Beach in Weymouth, England. This gritty hotel features twin and double bedrooms, but don't count on reservations — rooms are strictly booked on a first-come, first-served basis. You can book a stay for a mere 10 pounds a night, and cash is the only accepted method of payment. The hotel was built with about 1,000 tons of sand over a period of eight days, with volunteers putting in 14-hour days to get the job done.

Would you stay in this open-air "hotel" if you were in Weymouth?

Just. Plain. OFF. I hate having sand stuck in my bathing suit and I LOVE the beach, but this just looks uncomfortable.

I would like to stay for a day and take cool pics to show off to friends. But I won't stay overnight for sure.

I would definitely stay one night just to say I did it! It'd be a cool experience and if it rained you'd have a funny story to tell. I'd just sleep in my bathing suit and store my belongings somewhere else.

Sand gets everywhere, though. You'll be finding it in your clothes for months to come.
