Reasonably priced, and has everything you need. Not fancy but was clean and comfortable. Big bonus to me is that the pet fee is per stay instead of per day which keeps the costs down.
Don't expect a heated pool
The breakfast advertised online was continental, so we didn't expect a full hot breakfast which was nice. The beds were comfortable and the room was clean.
The pool heater was broken and the pool was freezing cold. The jacuzzi was warm but when the jets were turned it looked like someone poured soap in it. The TV connection was bad and the reception kept going in and out.
Room was clean - bed was comfy - towels were thick - everything worked - location was convenient - staff was friendly. Best of all - price was very reasonable. Will def book it again.
The room was neat and clean as was the bathroom. The location was far enough from downtown so the traffic wasn't a problem. The staff was helpful. I wish I had known there two stories and I would have chosen a room on the ground level.
The tv didn't work and had to be worked on by the staff three times. They were quick and efficient though.
Exceptionally friendly staff and warm cookies at the front desk! They do the best that they can with an aging facility.
From check in to check out the stay was great. Exceptionally friendly staff, clean rooms, comfortable beds, great location.
It was perfect for what we needed.
Decor is a little dated but the room was spotless and the staff was super nice!
We were very pleased with the overall appearance and cleanliness of this hotel. It is very comfortable and attractive. We thoroughly enjoyed the pool area, and the deck, table, and chairs made it wonderful to hang out there. The website did not advertise a jacuzzi, so we were pleasantly surprised to find they had one...until we got in and realized it is barely heated. We were mildly disappointed because we like a hot jacuzzi, but it was heated more than the pool and was still comfortable with the jets.
Two problems: The jacuzzi wasn't heated to jacuzzi-temperature. Also, the wi-fi would cut in and out on us, which was a small problem.
Fairly comfortable stay with many amenities built
The Sands Inn is just off the PCH exist, right next to the gas station. The staff was friendly and there were free cookies at the check-in counter. Our room was clean; the beds were comfortable and the bathroom pleasant. The free breakfast was tasty, especially the waffles. This place even included wifi, though the speeds were fairly slow. Overall, I found the place to be a positive experience, though ear plugs are recommended if you would like uninterrupted sleep.
The walls are rather thin and car alarms went off during the night, interrupting our sleep. The wifi was so slow that I used my phone for internet access instead.
Flat screen tv
When booking, I read that this hotel had bathtubs, it did not.
Grest value and nice rooms.
The price for what you get was awesome. Needed a place to stay while traveling from SF to LA. This place was clean, well maintained and the stuff was great.
Breakfast was free but nothing special. Wish they had more options and fresher eggs and sausage.
Comfortable bed, room was really clean.
Strong soap/disinfectant smell made breathing difficult. In room refrigerator rumbled pretty much the entire night. Between the two I didn't get much sleep.
