"Relaxing motel and spa"
We enjoyed our stay at the Sandpiper motel, but not for the reasons you may be looking for. We liked the 50s-60s motel, the naturally hot water spa, the swimming pool, the terrace with pingpong table, the large room with kitchenette, dining area and balcony, the old Sandpiper sign turning with the wind, the views of the desert below, the location...The bed were comfortable and unlimited WiFi + cable TV were included. It was very relaxing, the pools are a wonder, people actually talk to you (didn't see one person with a cell phone), overall good mood/friendly place. We had a good time and totally disconnected from our busy city life. This said, we were expecting a little bit more when it comes to the room itself. The bathroom was not great: bathtub had rust, only one towel per person, no mat or washcloths. The door was stuck, we had to give it several pushes every time we needed to open it. The room felt very stuffy when we came in and we had to open all windows to let air in. The kitchenette oven was not cleaned (old food in it), the fridge wasn't making enough cold. There were only a couple of spoon, one mug, no paper towels, etc. The manager (or owner) told us, they were remodeling (I guess our room wasn't remodeled yet), and we hope so. Remodeled, it would be a great little hotel and we would come back anytime. Even if not totally remodeled, but with better attention to service, cleanness, some amenities, it would be a good place to stay. Great for families too.
