The Sands staff was friendly and accommodating. The rooms are outdated and the AC didn't work (we were there in the summer), although when we called the front desk, they sent someone up to try to fix it right away. It worked sporadically for the rest of our week stay. The internet is horrible, it worked the first day and then didn't work again for the rest of the time we were there, I asked a few times about it, and they said that they were having problems with it. Unfortunately it was something I really needed while I was there so it was a major downfall of my stay. The hotel is pet friendly which was great for us and they treated our dog great. When taking the dog out at 1am during the week, there were some teenagers out front smoking and drinking and being a little loud but they didn't bug us, I think they might have been trying to get into the bar/casino attached to the hotel (I think thats what it is, I didn't actually go inside) The Sands has lots of free parking, and is close to the highway.. but there is no pool, fitness room or activity room.. There is a restaurant, and breakfast is included if you pay a daily rate but extra if you pay a weekly rate.. my grandparents stayed there for a couple days when they came to visit us and said the breakfast was ok but they charged them extra for coffee, its not included in the specials... overall you get what you paid for.. its cheaper then downtown, clean but outdated, and nothing extra included. I would suggest this hotel for someone looking for a clean bed to lay your head, not recommended for families or people wanting to walk somewhere from the hotel... good place if you want a cheap place close to Rexall Place..
