I was recently in Walsenburg for a photoshoot and needed a room for the night. It's old and dated but for $45 I wasn't expecting the Ritz Carlton. They advertised WIFI but it was password protected and I wasn't given the password upon check in so I didn't bother accessing it. My only real complaint about the place was the... More

Had to stop for the night unexpectedly and chose The Sands because it wasn't a chain, it looked inviting from the road, and the woman who answered the phone when I called was very friendly and cheerful. The room was spacious, clean, not so modern, but comfortable. And a very reasonable price! As I was in town to view some... More

Discusting. Terrible chemical smell from something used to mask odors. Blasting train horn one- half block away. Dead Christmas tree in the lobby with the bulbs still hanging from it. It is now October.

This is an older style mom and pop motel. The furnishings and decor are from the 50's. There is a full kitchen, but no pots, dishes etc. The room had a very unpleasant odour like diesel fuel. I think they tried to cover the odour with room freshener. It didn't work. The pillow had only one pillow case cover and... More

Buyer beware - This is the worst hotel on the planet - dirty, a horrible smell permeates the entire room - they close the breakfast at 8:25AM long before anyone ate but it looked horrible anyway Bad service, bad prices, bad room- Avoid this place like the plague Trains rumble through blaring horns all night long

I absolutely enjoyed staying at the Sands Motel. The people were nice and friendly and the rooms were very comfortable. Every morning they have a continental breakfast which is perfect because my kids cant go a day without breakfast and nor did I have to go anywhere to eat so early in the morning. The owners are caring and very... More

My husband and I stayed in one of the one bedroom apartments. Not up to date, but they are remodeling. Very comfotable, clean establishment. We were staying with our Husky, what a pet friendly area. I'm looking forward to another stay at the Sands Motel. Monthly rates are very reasonable. They are located within walking distance of restraunts, groceries, and... More
