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...

My husband and I extended our stay near Vegas due to the Delta cancellations. We decided to visit Hoover Dam and chose The Sands Motel based on the positive reviews.

We were here for a last minute get-away weekend and this was one of a few rooms left. The reviews were good so we took it. The room was newly refurbished and nice! plenty of room, clean and cute. It is family owned and operated and that's a plus in my book! Glenda and Tami gave us recommendations on restaurants...

Initially wasn't sure when I saw the exterior as it appeared dated, but when we went into our room I was nicely surprised. Lovely room, nicely decorated, very clean, immaculate actually. Looks newly updated. Nice to get out of the noise of Las Vegas. Great spot to stay if you are interested in the Hoover Dam and visiting the Lake...

We just returned from a one-night "stay-cation" for our annual girls' weekend. Room availability in Boulder City was limited for the date we chose, so of the remaining rooms we chose the Sands Motel because of the good reviews. It's an old-school property with room refurbishments underway. The motel is family- owned and operated, and they seem to be extra...

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...
