All of these reviews are spot on and not lying a bit. This is a crack house/flop house of a disaster of a place. Sadly, my husband and I were driving across country and hit North Bay blindly at a time when there was a music festval happening and there was nary a room to be had for miles in every direction. We, on a chance, called the Sands Motor Inn with the hopes of a cancelation. Low and behold, there was a last minute cancelation, our elation was short lived. We checked in for $120. The beds were in a shambles. Dirty mattresses on the floor, dirty sheets, no pillow cases, no towels, garbage in the room, no waste basket, no toilet paper, dirt/filth on the floor. Cigarette odor was unbearable (we were told it was a non smoking room), cigarette burns in the sheets matching up with burn in the mattress. That tells me the sheets have not been changed...period! The next morning there were bed bugs crawling all around. Do not pay any attention to the smarmy guy who operates the place, Bo. He lies, lies, lies. He told me he would have fresh pot of coffee ready when I got up to depart (not that I wanted it) but he was nowhere to be found. Bo also said that they had made vast improvements in this place. My husband and I had the worst fight over staying here. It ruined the trip. I went and sat in the car because I was so upset over the intolerable conditions. I have contacted the chamber of commerce and told them about the horrid conditions here. I doubt it will make any difference. I would sleep under a bridge before I set foot in this place again. PS the photos provided by the management are a joke. I have posted the real deal.
