Awesome location in a great spot only a block or two from both the beach and the beautiful Main Street of bird rock which has supermarket/subway/great coffee shop/restaurants etc. Rooms are comfortable for the price and really location gives it many ticks. Wifi was very very ordinary which should be fixed but only a minor issue. Day time front office staff were very very friendly. Night time staff not so much, didn't seem interested in helping us in any aspect. Needed tickets printed out (wouldn't help) and a few other little things.

Would certainly stay again though!! Great place just needs better customer service

Great deal in La Jolla. Not a corporate joint. Place is very basic. All thats all you need. No AC. Perfect for me, and solid price. i think it was $99 a nite or less. But, give the location, its worth it.

Room tip: It doesnt matter, you arent going to be staying in the room all day.

I found this
Hotel thru the city of LaJolla website b/c Sands do not have online reservations. Everything is very expensive in this area so to find a decent place for below $100 was a challenge. The streets around it mostly residential with old houses and apartments. Ocean is visible from the 3d stare lending and may be some rooms. The hotel outside is not very impressive, and they do not care very much of it. But when we opened the door to the room 309, we were pleasantly surprised with the bed - big and comfortable, newer flat screen TV, freshly looked bathroom tiles. The room was big, the bathroom countertop had enough space for our things...they provide basic soup and shampoo, plus coffee. Microwave and refrigerator were clean and worked well. The weather was cool enough not to think about a/c (there is none) and we did not try a big fan provided. The street noise is OK, but the regular bus can be too loud for some. Other than that, we'll be back B/c the room was clean and well served, and we liked a short walk to the beach and many restaurants (French gourmet one of the best for our taste). CVS is next door. Parking is free and easy on both sides of the hotel.

We stayed for 3 nights and found it to be ok, the rooms were stinking hot at night but for $80 a night we couldnt complain, the location was good , quiet and a nice walk to shops. The area felt safe at night and it was an easy drive to all the nice beaches and Pacific beach

Our stay at Sands of La Jolla was pleasant enough since we didn't spend much time there. This is a no frills motel but the room was clean, the location was good and they have a pool. The only con: our room turned out to be out of their wifi areas so we didn't get wifi service. If you need wifi service make sure to ask for a room with a strong signal.
