Reasonable price with a great location.
I've stayed at the Sands 3 times in the past few years. It's got easy access to the college and freeway. It's not far from the central part of the town. It's a great price as well and has a helpful and friendly staff.

Basic accommodations. Shower very small. Bed ok. Noisy. Could hear neighbors in next room talking.

Excellent location and great price for value.
Solid location that is in good proximity to CalPoly and town - property is well maintained and comfortable. Definitely a motel feel which adds to its charm. Front desk staff were super friendly and helpful. We enjoyed the pool and hot tub - which were both quite nice and clean. The room was okay - bathroom could use some upgrades / updates but otherwise a clean and comfortable - simple room. I love the fact you can park your car right outside your room - great convenience factor. Breakfast was simple and good.

Review of room 124
The room was clean, the bed comfortable, the pool was the cleanest I have ever seen. Everything within walking distance, a fitness room which we loved, easy check-in, with very helpful and friendly staff. The only down was no WiFi in SLO the days we visited!
