Great Stay

We were here for a 2 day stay and visit to Hearst Castle. Location was great and easy access to everything. Couldn't have asked for better. Close to dining, shopping and sightseeing. Very nice comfortable room.

Comfortable, clean and quiet!

Our second stay here. Very convenient to both San Luis Obispo and the freeway. Great breakfast. Staff friendly and efficient. Room comfortable, squeaky clean and best of all quiet. Free DVDs to watch a nice bonus.

Solid, comfortable room

Stayed at The Sands while visiting college kid. Convenient to all of SLO downtown. Room was clean, bathroom is huge. Traveled with our dog, no hassles at all. Parking is a little limited on the weekend. Beds were comfy. No frills but a solid place to stay for the price.

Great Inn, great location

I was in SLO for business and this is my 4th hotel in as many trips, but it will be my last. It was comfortable, had a good breakfast, and was an easy walk to downtown SLO.

Great location

We've stayed here before because it is clean, includes a quick breakfast, and is very convenient to Cal Poly. The hotel is within walking distance of the school entrance. We will definitely stay again.

Although there is not a restaurant at the hotel, Woodstock's Pizza and Firestone Grill both serve great food. Casual dining and easy to get to. We are looking forward to trying other restaurants in the area.

Sands Inn & Suites

Not worth the price. We could have got the same type of service & room at Motel 6 which is just down the road. The room is stuffy and old.

was as expected

We were staying one night and got what we expected. The room was clean, but small. The bed surprisingly comfortable and water pressure poor...because of all the water saving features. Best of all located in San Luis and the price was right.
