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. Stayed in one of the renovated rooms that was absolutely "so stinkin' cute"!! Small room but had all we needed. Retro style and positively adorable!! Staff did not hesitate on...

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...

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.

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...
