I was disappointed with this motel.The front makes it look nicer than a Motel 6, but that's what it is basically. For some reason, we were given a handicap accessible room, which had a large open space in the bathroom that we didn't need and it took away from extra space we might

Got a Groupon deal on this hotel. It is inexpensive, clean, comfortable. The room was bigger than I expected and had lots of blankets and towels. The staff is friendly and helpful. The breakfast was great (waffles, cereal, breads, yogurt, all kinds of drinks). Good location close

Enjoyed our stay in the Sands Inn. For an affordable motel, it offered a nice and clean (though dated) room, friendly front desk service, a better breakfast variety than most similar motels, and a place to plug in (120v outlet) for electric vehicles.

Hi ~ Can the suite sleep a family of 5? Are dogs welcome?
We had 2 queen beds for a family of 4 I believe. Would depend on the ages of the kids (if you could put theee in bed together or if 2 could go together and 1 in with you). If so, it’d be ok for a stopover but a bit cramped for any longer. No idea about dogs, we didn’t see any.

What time is check-in?
I agree with WowPeter. However, I've called or e-mailed the hotel and asked for early arrival and they always arrange for it..........so, do that.
