Decided to visit the CalPoly campus with my family and see the sites. Sands offered the amenities I was looking for on their site. The good: the guys at the counter were nice and breakfast offerings were OK.
The bad: old facility being masked by new paint and carpet. The shower faucet had to be turned 20 times, not kidding, to get cold water flowing. My kids almost got scalded the first time they took a shower trying to get cold water to flow. Lights in the bathroom and bedroom flickers when microwave was used. Proof of old electrical wiring. Our keycard had to be redone twice so that we can get in the room. I was looking forward to the sauna but that too was a disappointment. The water was cold and felt like it never passed 70 degrees. Lastly, the room was stuffy and the walls were paper-thin. I don't know why this place gets the 4 and 5's. Stop doing that people. It's misleading people relying on the reviews; specially those traveling with kids.
The room rate is too high for what the Sands offer. Hope this honest daddy review helps others looking to get a quality stay.
