Was traveling on business on a budget and stayed my first night at Motel 6 in Vegas (was booked by biz partner). It was horrible! People next door and above were quite loud throughout night. I had to stay one more night in the area and thought going just outside of town would be cheaper than the bait and switch... More

The owners are the friendliest hotelliers I've ever come across. They were extremely helpful and considerate. They will do everything they can to make sure your stay is enjoyable. The rooms are clean and comfortable. The location is perfect, right in the center of downtown historic Boulder City, just a brief walk from dining and local shops. It's very close... More

We were looking for a place other then crazy Las Vegas and made our way up to Boulder City. The Sands Motel looked so clean and well kept so we pulled in. The front desk staff couldn't have been more helpful and so friendly. The rooms were spacious and well appointed with fridge, microwave, coffee and big soft towels. I... More

Stayed here for a few weeks. Absolutely loved it. Will definitely stay here again. Quiet area, clean room and very friendly owner and staff. Close to the downtown area of Boulder City. Within walking distance.

We booked this motel the day before, on the way to West Rim Grand Canyon. Knowing we may be late checking in we advised the owner as the office closed in the evening. She told us where she would leave the key out for us. However when we arrived at 11pm, to find this had been forgotten!! Her daughter was... More

Nothing special here. a good bed and a clean room. Coke machine and ice are about the only extras to be had. They do however offer a 10% discount at a nearby restaurant for dining. It is a little basic. None of the furniture came from the same period let alone the same set. The shower was cranky but I... More

The AAA sign lured us in, but the room we were given was barely good enough to make the bottom rung. Devoid of any atmosphere, it seemed cobbled together from mismatched parts. The air conditioner was so noisy that we were unable to sleep (it was over 100 outside), and the controls were not working on it. The bathroom sink... More
