My recent trip to Boulder City was delightful. The room was comfortable, beautiful, newly renovated, and extremely clean. The owner was welcoming and helpful and freely offered advice on local eateries and places to visit. Check in and out was seamless. We will certainly be returning and will definitely be recommending to others. See you soon Sands Motel ... Thank...

I keep seeing quaint as a descriptive. The area is just that, quaint, beautiful & relaxing. The hotel is actually epic. For all the right reasons. I travel with my grandchildren, they love it here! I prefer small family run businesses, it's that personal touch that makes all the differences. The Keurig with assorted pods is an excellent touch. The...

My wife and I contacted the hotel with a very short notice and the lady owner that I don't recall her name, was very understandable and helpful all the time. She was even able to figure a way to let us check in very late (around 1 am). It's very close to the Dam and Grand Canyon West, if you...

Our stay at the Sands was great. Interior was clean and cute. It was way nicer than the casino we had stayed at on the strip! We never had any issues with the accommodations and highly recommend it to anyone.

Based on the other reviews, we chose to stay here for a night in between visiting Zion National Park and checking out the Hoover Dam, and they were quite accurate. The mother of the owner who ran the front desk was friendly and helpful, and the newly renovated room was clean, comfortable and spacious. After the long day's drive, it...

We stayed at the Sands Motel for two nights on a 30th Anniversary Getaway. First off, Boulder City is Awesome. I felt like I was in Radiator Springs in the Pixar/Disney movie Cars. Retro town, retro restaurants and wonderful retro motel. Beds were comfy. There is a lot of room. Just loved it. My only suggestion is that they need...

Price was reasonable. The lady in the office was so nice and helpful! The room was very clean and well stocked with anything we needed. Would recommend the Sands Motel to anyone! The rooms were recently remodeled. We were visiting family, and it was close by.
