I didn't do my due diligence when making plans for this trip. The Sands promised a fireplace in our room. It was a lightbulb behind a picture of a fire. We stayed at the Sands because they advertised a pool. It was so scummy we were grossed out. The worst part was that the room smelled just awful and soon our clothing smelled awful and then our car smelled awful from our being in it. We had to wash everything when we got home including our coats. The parking lot lights were so bright that it made sleep difficult. The separate bedroom had only 3 walls, so not so separate. I just today found out that they had bed bugs in October 2010.
