Enjoyable one night stay
A one night stay booked at late notice. I had read the positive comments and can agree. The hotel/motel is clean and comfy for our needs. The hotel is easy to get to being close to the main highway and not far from the main commercial/tourist area of San Louis. Breakfast was adequate, better than other motels I have stayed in. The pool was nice to cool down. A big thanks to Bridget who helped us with information on the local area and printed maps for us.

Just be aware before you book ~
There were me with jackhammers working on the pool first thing in the morning... also we believe this hotel is used for re-homing folks coming back into society. No issues, just no forewarning.

Solid, affordable hotel.
Very accommodating and kind staff. This was a good basic hotel. I forgot to tell the manager that during the night, when the wind picked up, the plastic tarp over the construction materials at the hotel next door woke me up and kept me up for a few hours. This was not this hotels fault, so I’m not including this in my rating. This hotel was just fine, comfortable, and not fancy. A solid, affordable choice with a good location.

Excellent stop for a Cal Poly visit
The Sands offers 10 wall plugs in a covered parking area for EV Charging needs, slow but will get you some range to find faster chargers. Hotel staff was very professional, friendly and helpful. Located walking distance to Cal Poly, less than 1 mile.

Great place for a really good price
We were very happy with our stay. We stayed in a suite which was surprisingly spacious! We were traveling with our two sons and dog. We were in town to check out cal poly. It was so close that we walked the 20 min onto campus rather than hassle with parking. Good solid breakfast in the morning and the beds were comfortable. We would definitely stay there again. Helpful front desk help too ( special shout out to Cesar, he was awesome!)
