      Historical Traveler Reviews Sands Inn & Suites San Luis Obispo

      Pet Friendly and People Friendly

      from

      I stayed at the Sands for a wedding I attended in SLO and loved my accommodations and so did my pooch. Consideration for pets was a big plus and the staff and the room were both warm and friendly. Whenever I go to SLO, my pooch and I stay at the Sands and we're planning on coming again this year.

      Great Place!

      from

      The Sands maintains a high standard of service and cleanliness and offers good value despite the challenges of operating in a partying college environment where peace and quiet can be hard to come by. We've enjoyed several stays and two graduations.

      Would have rather slept under an overpass!!!!

      from

      Please, avoid this place at all cost. The Motel itself is respectable, but the staff was one of the worst I've ever encountered. As a paying customer, I have never before, in my life, been treated the way the Sands Motel staff treated me during my 2 night stay. I wanted to check out after my first night, but they held a $50 cancelation fee over my head, which made me stay one more night. Looking back, I shoulda payed the $50 penalty and got the heck outa there. SLO has way to many nice places to stay, LOOK ELSEWHERE!!!!

      Ghetto Service

      from

      Dishonest staff....unauthorized and non explainable charges to credit card. Was not allowed to use the pool even though we paid to stay at the hotel. You're better off bringing a tent and camping by the freeway.

      Hated it!

      from

      This hotel is extremely overpriced! We were treated worse than if we were staying in a hostel while we were paying resort prices. I would NEVER stay here again!!!

      Don't waste your time

      from

      There are a lot nicer facilities at much better prices. Management and staff were very rude. Stay at the Peach Tree right across the street.

      This hotel is horrible

      from

      Don't stay here- this place is a **** hole and way over priced for what you get!!! Plus even though I was a paying customer they told me I could not use the pool facilities. The management is rude, unfriendly, and inconsiderate. I also had an UNAUTHORIZED charge of $500 on my credit card 2 days after checking out- that no one at the hotel could seem to explain. There are way better places to stay in San Luis Obispo than this dump!!!!

      Pet Friendly

      from

      Thanks to a referral from Days Inn in SLO, we found the Sands pet friendly. Also visit their website to mention their upgrade promotion to a suite, complete with a separate sofa bed. Free VHS rentals also included from their small collection. Terrific value.

      Smoke and COLD water

      from

      The non-smoking room smelled like smoke. Bathroom window was left open. While taking a shower I got a shot of COLD water.

      Excellent value

      from

      We stayed here a few years ago...it was wonderful.

      Thomas's Graduation

      Our drive to San Luis for Thomas's Graduation marked the beginning of our road trip. Ben had to work that morning so we planned to set off shortly after midday. Unfortunately there was more work than he had initially anticipated, so he did not arrive until after four, and we were supposed to have dinner with the family that evening after our arrival. Ben packed for our two week road trip in less than twenty minutes, and then we were off!

      ... so many times. Its like they got board of building straight roads and put a bend every 100meters to make up for the endless straight roads through out the country. Having a Harley chasing you around the corners made me push a lot more than I would of normally especially in car that handles like a boat. Going up and down the mountain roads from below sea level to above sea level left my ...

      The concert was an ongoing birthday present from my son and family. I am blessed with a wonderful family to make me feel so special.

      ... scenes, street scenes and building facades used in countless movies & TV shows, great how they can use and reuse scenery with just a few touchups, we saw where so-called Central Park was filmed for the show "Friends". All filmed in LA never went to New York at all. We saw the steps that batman used to run up at the beginning of each episode to guide news to the Comissioner. Apparently the scene was only ever filmed once and was looped for every episode of the series. They ...
