The Sands is a nice basic hotel. Maybe a little pricey for what you get, but they throw in a free continental breakfast.
It is an old school motel, centered around the parking in the middle, so you drive right up to your door.
Rooms are not too large, not too small. Table with 2 chairs, a one comfy chair, a king bed, 2 bed stands, an armoire with iron and ironing board, a 3 drawer dresser. Decor is basic hotel, nothing fancy. Bathroom is rather small. Shower, no tub. Low-flow shower head.
My room had just been redone, with new carpet and furniture and a nice big flat screen TV. This is still an older building and you can see the wear - some repaired spots in the wall and tilework.
The location is fairly quiet, far enough from the freeway to not get road noise.
There is no restaurant on site but several within walking distance. It is maybe a mile and a half from Cal Poly. You could walk it you want but it is uphill to Campus.
Free wifi in room. Continental breakfast was basic - bagels, fruit, coffee with dry creamer (my pet peeve), cook-em-yourself waffles, oatmeal, cereal.
Decent sized pool with spa and many chaise lounges.
There are many motels and hotels on this part of Monterey Street so you have your pick.
