    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.

    Good intentions

    Exceptionally friendly staff and warm cookies at the front desk! They do the best that they can with an aging facility.

    Great Hotel

    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.

    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.

    Good Breakfast, small room.

    Hotel was located close to Cal Poly and not too far from downtown. Our room felt small for a family of 5 (two queens). Breakfast was good, coffee was great.

    Stuffy room and small. Parking is tight for an SUV. Back of hotel looked unkept.

    fine for a family on a budget

    The staff was very helpful, outside was clean, family friendly, and close to stores, etc. Pet friendly

    Rooms aren't the nicest, bed was uncomfortable. We ended up changing hotels. expected more from pics.
