Dusty Bones, innkeeper always takes very good care of ma, I travel through from Colorado to Montana 2 or 3 times a year and always plan a Sage and Sand stop. Rooms are always clean and a number of choices are available. While in Saratoga there are hot springs and some funky consignment stores I check out. Enjoy your stay... More

First I picked the Sage and Sand because of its pet-friendly policy. That is a plus here. Then we decided to travel without our dogs and having committed to the motel we spent a few nights there. Don't expect much other than a good bed (with old sheets and blankets) and a warm room. If you're planning to impress then... More

Kind of a small room, and bed was uncomfortable to sleep on. However Dusty the manager was very friendly and had lots of good recommendations of things to see and places to eat in town. Also tried to use the wifi but could not log in without a password and by the time we went to the check-in desk to... More

The best rates in town. The motel is centrally located to just about everything you would want to see in town. The manager made us feel like family . The room was both clean and comfortable. Will always stay there. Thanks Dusty for a great stay.

Though they advertise wireless service, it was not available in the room or even in the parking lot! (That's where the manager told me I might have to go to get the wireless connection.) Windows wouldn't close because of bad fit and paint. Mattresses, sheets and blankets were thin, thin, thin!! The housekeeping did a good job, but the owners/managers... More

We spent a night at the Sage and Sand in August 2013. The decor is dated but the staff is helpfull and nice. We stayed in a unit that had 2 bedrooms which was nice. You can't beat the location--2 blocks to the hot springs and 2 blocks in a different direction to downtown shops and cafes. There aren't a... More

It is located just a block from the hot spring, but no information was posted, and we went all the way down town and back to the pools by the road a block behind the hotel. The rooms were not fancy, and not exactly as advertised (the "kitchenette" is a microwave and refrigerator on the dresser or desk.) but the... More

Pros: Clean room, comfy bed, clean bathroom, plenty of big fluffy towels, very kitchy decor had fridge and microwave and BIG tub to soak in, which was great. Location access to downtown is great! Do not expect any frills though. This hotel is a great price and simple and rustic. It is being re-modeled,and re-vamped, so it can only get... More

OK, I admit many of the TA reports I read were accurate but here's our experience. The Sage & Sand Motel is a "motel" not the Holiday Inn Express. The staff was friendly, outgoing and "yes" not in any rush. The motel is kept looking fresh in the '60s from the inside and out. Our room ($75) had two bedrooms... More

We stayed in the two room, one bath suite in corner. Wifi seems to work outside in the parking lot, but not in the rooms. We were cycling through, and staying in the center of town is a plus when that is your main transportation. Clean sheets, air did not work.
