After reading reviews here, we decided to stay and the Sands Motel during our recent trip that included a stop in Boulder City. It’s an older motel and despite the many positive reviews we were nonetheless pleasantly surprised. The room we had (#12) was large, clean, quiet and comfortable. The room had an small extra room with a microwave, small...

Great place! Friendly staff! We'll definitely stay again! My husband and I stayed for 3 nights in one of the remodeled retro rooms. We've been traveling through the West for the last few weeks and these were the best three nights of sleep we've had on the entire trip! Perhaps it was the new beds or the super cold room...

The hotel has so many possibilities!. The location is on the main road and is noisy if you get room #1. It is partially renovated and so that is good. However make sure you book by phone and request a renovated room away from the front. We were given rm #1 - The giant garbage bin is located directly outside...

We stayed for two nights in April to visit Hoover Dam & Lake Mead. It was a perfect spot, old-fashioned charm with modern amenities, walking distance to restaurants, and the owners could not be more helpful & friendly. The bed was super comfy and the kitchen/sitting room was great to have. We had a king with rollaway & even the...

This is a family run hotel and well worth the money. I arrived well after midnight, much later than I expected. I had been out of cell phone range so did not get the voicemails the owner had left. She did not charge my credit card until after I arrived because she was not sure I would actually come. I...

Clean, good service at front desk. Definitely worth the money for either the upgraded (modernized) room or the old one. The former ($79) has been totally redone in bright colors and contemporary themes. It's one room plus a small anteroom that includes fridge and coffeemaker. The older model doesn't have the anteroom. Both have rather small bathrooms, a big cramped...
