          I felt safe and comfortable coming and going as a woman traveling alone. Staff was very accomodating and upgraded my room without my asking - just to be nice! I liked the microwave and frig - that was handy. It was what I expected - only better I imagine as I got an upgrade. Got a king room on first floor instead of Queen on 2nd.

          The first day after first overnight they didn't clean the room - make the bed, change towels, etc. But then they did the next night - I didn't say anything thinking maybe that was part of the budget price. Also, no stopper in the tub and I love baths.

          It was easy to find. The bathroom was spotless.

          The mattress in room 212 needs to be replaced. They're getting old.

          This was the third worst hotel experience I've ever had. The others included dog feces and bedbugs respectively. This was slightly better.

          It would have been nicer if we didn't find a hypodermic needle in the bathroom when we checked in!

          Linens were clean.

          I have paid online using my Amex card which has verification code. When I reached the hotel, the man who looks like dead asked to see my card and my Driver's License. When I showed it to him, he got it and made a copy of it at the back of the registration form he gave me. In the morning, I asked if I could have the registration back so that I could remove the personal information there. He won't even hand it to me. He said the management will tear it off later. I said why don't you tear it off now? He won'T. I'm afraid they might do something with my personal information(identity theft). For this reason alone, I recommend people not to stay in this motel.

          I had a horrible experience at this hotel just about 2days ago! The maid took it upon herself to let an unwanted visitor in my room while my husband and I were sleeping. Then they called me immediately after and toldme I couldn't have visitors then to top it off I had paid for a week and they kicked me out the next day because they say that I lied!! Wow. Can u believe that?!

          Sands Motel is located on Magnolia Avenue, which runs parallel to Highway 91, a few miles to the west of Riverside. It is conveniently placed to catch a bus or travel by car to the historic centre of this town which is really worth a visit. Sands Motel is typical of motels in the budget range of accomodation in the USA - no breakfast but spotlessly clean and comfortable - and fitted in perfectly with our intinerary at the end of our holiday.
