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.

We stayed in a newly remodeled room. Very clean motel. Friendly and helpful staff. Great location. My family and I will definitely stay here again. I highly recommend staying at The Sands while visiting Las Vegas, Lake Mead and the Hoover Damn.

New owners (first in 50 years) are renovating. The new rooms are beautifully done. Web picture does not do it justice. Mid century exterior, modern interior. Kudos to the new family. Mom helps too. Ask for renovated room. If not available, original rooms are ok...but ask to see new room before you leave.

This motel has the most comfortable beds in any motel my husband and I have ever slept in while traveling. They have a comforter (duvet) on each bed and you feel like you are sleeping in the clouds. They also have a love seat to relax in and watch TV versus hard backed chairs in other motels. They are new...

After 2 nights travelling and experiencing 2 truly awful hotels we were so pleased to finally arrive at The Sands Motel and we were not disappointed.
