In our five day trip from Long Beach to San Francisco, mostly up the PCH, the Blue Sands Motel was certainly the best place we stayed -- and we stayed in some wonderful places! Its location couldn't be more convenient, the service was excellent (from booking to our arrival and departure), and the room itself was outstanding!
It is evident that the room has been upgraded and that the owners truly care about their property. Our room featured a fireplace with a large television above it, as well as a dvd player. There was storage space that allowed us to get our luggage out of the way, in addition to the closet and kitchenette area (our room had a small refrigerator, microwave, coffee pot and the requisite supplies). The beds were very comfortable and we all (Grandmother age 70, Mother age 47, myself age 22 and sister 21) slept well!
The bathroom was well done and feels more like a bathroom at home rather than at a hotel -- the finishes were of a very nice quality -- a gorgeous stand-alone vanity, ample shelving for storing our toiletries and beautiful tile work.
The pool was of a nice size, clean and obviously well-maintained, but because of the March temperatures, we were unable to go for a dip.
I would recommend this hotel to anyone confidently!
