Pet Friendly and People Friendly
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.
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!!!!
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!!!!
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.
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
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
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!!!!
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
The non-smoking room smelled like smoke. Bathroom window was left open. While taking a shower I got a shot of COLD water.
We stayed here a few years ago...it was wonderful.

... the fitness crazy women. Checked out the skate park. Walking back to the car we met a guy offering rides on his specially converted push bike with seats on the back. He started at $40 for a ride down to the pier, after a couple of minutes he was down to $15, looking disinterested we managed to get the poor guy down to $10. Feeling rude to turn such a good offer down we accepted and cruised down the promenade. Drove up state ...
So it turns out sleeping in a tent with nothing more that a towel to lay on really isn't good for making a good nights sleep. After only managing around three hours of sleep then getting in the car to sleep and being woken up by the intence heat it was time to get on the mountain bikes and hit the trails. 2 hours on the bikes and the trails being kind of lame we faked a injury and got our ...
... plans and did most of my road trip supply shopping. Comfy driving clothes, camping-ish gear, medicines (esp Pepto), maintenance supplies, and a fire extinguisher (it's illegal to drive in Honduras without one).
Angella, Jenny, Kavi and I got in a slumber party, complete with games, food, stories and Jedi. In Morocco I got Kavi a traditional Berber robe (or djellaba). They only make them in ...
My grandson, Austin, his friend, Matt, and I decided to hike up Bishops Peak as a good way to finish this year. We arrived at the take off point about 9:45. It took almost 1 1/2 hours to climb the 1,500 feet, a hike of about 1 1/2 miles to reach the top.
At the top of the peak, I had a beautiful view of both the ...
... will always be grateful.
I wish all of you could have seen the admiration the Spaniards had for Helen and Gus. Strangers regularly complimented their bravery and command of the language, their maturity in trying situations, and their ability to accommodate sudden changes in plans. I can confidently recommend Helen and Gus to anyone looking to travel the world with a couple of bright, young explorers. They are wonderful!
