Historically, I have avoided this hotel, opting for the Travelodge down the road. There used to be some police activity in this area fairly regular...but, to be fair, that seems to be at the hotel next door (Biltmore). Guilt by association. When the Travelodge rates were a bit steep a few weeks ago, I gave the Sands a shot and was most pleasantly surprised. The room was small but clean, had a nice TV and , unlike the Tavelodge, a shower with decent water pressure! There is no ac, but I did't need it... The fan was enough to get a cool crosswind going. I owuld probably avoid the first floor in the summer as the security screens may inhibit maximum airflow. The location, in the Birdrock section of La Jolla, is very convenient to a CVS, a great Mexican restaurant and a super scenic view of the ocean and Sunset. There is n't a great sandy beach within walking distance, because of the rocks, but it is beautiful. am low maintenance so I really can't comment on the front desk staff other to say that their motivation was a bit uneven, but no one was mean..just uninvolved in their own life! If I had an issue, my guess is they would have stepped up. Great rate, I felt safe (so did my car..I asked), clean and super location. I used hate WIFI most f the time I was in the room for surfing not streaming and had no major issues. Just not super fast.
