My stay was decent at the Sands only after they fixed my shower and air conditioning. I really believe that these problems should be taken care of before they give out a room. The motel was full, so another room was not an option. Also, a previous review stated that the motel is "pet friendly". Well, they were wrong! My cousin was forced to stay else where because they stated that his dog was to large for the sands. Turned out to be a blessing for him, because his motel was much better.

This motel was the worst place I have ever stayed at. I would rather sleep on the street then stay at this place again. Our room was never cleaned during our two night stay. When I called to get it cleaned they told me the maids had already left for the day, and this was at noon. I only had the "do not disturb" on the door until 10am, and figured having my room cleaned would not be a problem. The attitude of the management on duty(Susan) was extremely rude and unprofessional. As a graduate from Cal Poly, I can honestly tell you that there are so many other hotels to stay at in this great town that would make your experience so much better. Sands Motel and Suites is a place no one should ever have to experience!
