We had a weekend wedding to attend in Vegas, but NASCAR was going on and most everything was sold out or very expensive. The Sands met our needs without exception. It was a great stay in a newly remodeled room. It's an older style property that may not attract your attention driving by, but it was really sweet. When we...

Love this little retro Motel on the main drag in Boulder City. The owners/operators were super friendly and helpful and the accommodations were clean and nice, even the ones not yet remodeled. The remodeled room we stayed in was attractive and spotless. How much nicer to stay at this great place in Boulder City, 25 minutes from the airport, than...

Perfect retro motel in Boulder City. Spotlessly clean. Such a relief after the dump I stayed in, in Flagstaff- and exactly the same price. A nice change from the madness of Vegas. Top tip: do the drive from Kingman to Boulder City. The mountains before you get to Hoover Dam are stunning.

Traveling with family I wanted to find a place near Lake Mead Recreational area and not in the busy Las Vegas venue. The Sands Motel was in the perfect location in the warm and welcoming community of Boulder City within walking distance of restaurants and only 1/2 hour from Las Vegas. The family run motel is in the process of...

Classic 60s roadside, one-story motel that has been COMPLETELY REMODELED. Comfortable, great furnishings, incredible style. They even had a separate little room for a kitchenette (Keurig, Fridge, microwave) and breakfast table. We stayed here for one night while visiting the Hoover Dam and Lake Mead National Recreation Area and could have easily stayed for more. The Historic district (which we...

Recently remodeled and updated with a modern flair. Really nice and just needs a few incidentals to finish for a perfect score. Close to downtown with a great rate. Boulder is a unique small town with great charm and good restaurants.
