    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.

Starting in North Hollywood we went down Hollywood Boulevard where the pavements covered in stars of the famous. Left Hollywood to try and drive up to the cHollywood sign, but all the roads had been blocked up to it, with limited time we decided to carry on to Santa Monica. Went down to ...

It will be well to look out for those architectural styles which have proven their durability through the years or centuries which never really get out of fashion. For example, in france they country style continues to be continuously popular in the ...

    ... I had looked around everything it was back down in the bus and meet up with Marlene in the visitor's centre. She had picked up lunch for us while I was on the tour (from a nearby village). We were to have a picnic lunch but with the weather being a bit dicey we had our lunch outside in the sun at the visitors centre. I had a choice of wine tasting (apparently San Luis Obispo is overtaking the Napa valley as a wine producer) or visiting this ...

    And just for a change its overcast AGAIN this morning, but this time there is a smattering of rain! Let's hope it disappears...

    Had a lazy morning, after an intense day yesterday so decided to just take it easy today. The sun only woke up at 7:30am so why should we get up before it?? The town was quiet and hardly any traffic by the time we did venture out, which was a great sign for our trip.

    Today's itenary was to include seeing Big Sur and the californian coast. We had ...

    ... the rest of the night we talked about the in's and out's of our different cultures. One of the men asked her if she wanted a "chips a'hoy" cookie and she responded with, Are these sailor's cookies? (Jessica Reiners, I thought of you and me laughing in that moment). The next day, I meandered over to Montana De Oro and perused through the endless trails and sights of the beautiful coastline. Was this heaven? sure was. After setting up camp (in my tent!!) I explored my surroundings and ...
