hotel is run down with long-term tenants 50%Posted Jun 15, 2015
Pros: cold ac and nice pool.
Cons: general upkeep/maintenance and remove long-term tenants.
Location: far from town............nothing to do in area.
Ended up with nice room, however, disappointing on cleanliness and upkeep. several lights did not work and TV's were over 10 years old. Stay was ok for me given price, however, I could never take wife to this hotel.

Scary place to stayPosted Jun 14, 2015
To begin with, this place is in a bad area and too far from everything. We got there at 3pm, no one was there to check us in. We finally checked in and the key card didn't work. There was food crumbs under the beds and one towel per bathroom. The tenants woke up the whole place at 6:30am with their foul language argument, you can hear their toddler crying in the background while they went at it. Place looks like a run down apartment complex. Littered with cigarette butts. At check out, again front desk door locked and no one ever answered. Couldn't properly check out. After several attempts to call the front desk, a girl from a different location asked us to leave the key cards in the mail slot. All in all very poor service and bad hotel choice.

Kind of ScaryPosted May 12, 2015
Pros: The room was cute. And the pool looked good.
Cons: The staff. Lighting. And other tenants.
Location: It is located in a neighborhood. It would be a drive to get to local activities and food.
The hotel is located in a dark and not good area of town. When we arrived and checked in the front desk person was on her cell phone while on the computer, and it took her some time to finish up what she was doing and help us. Her phone continued to ring and she continued to notice it. She also didn't make eye contact and was rude when we asked what she crossed out on the sign in form, telling us to contact Expedia. We also had to ask where our room was. After we parked in the back of the hotel and noticed as we walked to our room it seemed like an apartment community. Lawn chairs sitting around a bbq grill with pillows and cigarette butts every where. The room was cute, like a little bungalow, and clean enough. Wasn't too bad. The floor above us was horribly squeaky as the people above walked around. The scary part was the other tenants. Not to pigeon hole other people, but there were some questionably large, colored people, wearing bandanas looking at and checking out our vehicle that we drove there in. Which made us VERY uncomfortable. They also hung out outside until late talking very loudly and smoking. Just didn't feel safe at all. Good thing we had a family emergency which forced us to leave early. However, the hotel office closes at 6 and we were unable to properly check out, so we just left. Apparently, the office staff lives on site? But I didn't find that out till after the fact.

very laid backPosted Apr 7, 2015
This would have been a better experience if there was any hotel staff to deal with! We got there early evening and when we went to check in, there was no one there! finally we called the number on my confirmation sheet and were told the reception person was working at their other hotel and the keys were left for us in an envelope on the back door of the building. So we go there to retrieve them after some confusion finding it, the envelope had no keys!! so another call to the absent desk person, said they would send somebody over with keys to let us in to our room... more waiting. Finally we were let into our room but no keys were ever made available! thank goodness it was only an overnight. Also we paid for 2 queen beds but there was only one so we felt cheated and there was no desk person to complain to, just a phone # and we tired of dealing with the whole thing. We should have gotten a huge discount. That said, the price was right - I guess you get what you pay for and the room was acceptable, nothing fancy but I'm not going there again after that experience.

Away from the hustlePosted Mar 24, 2015
Pros: The price during spring break was great.
Cons: Have a primary and secondary person to answer the phone after hours.
Location: Right outside of town, quiet, couple stores right up the road. It's only a couple miles into town where all the happenings are.
My son and I stayed here this past weekend for one night. It was after hours by the time we got there, and the manager was a little slow to react, but everything worked out just fine. The rooms are a little dated, but they work. If you want a fancy room with flat screen t.v's this is not your place. If you want a room that works, then this place will work great. The shower was fine, the bed slept O.K., I didn't smell anything funky, and the A/C worked. What more could you want?

Old and run down - look for something betterPosted Dec 30, 2014 on Hotels
This is an old hotel. It's run down and in poor condition. The beds were very old and dirty. I like to shop for bargains and thus willing to stay in places that aren't top notch, but this place was too far gone and it gave us the creeps to sleep there. Pay a little more and get something better. We couldn't wait to get out of the room in the morning and contemplated leaving before we even slept in the room.

Quiet Older InnPosted Dec 29, 2014
Pros: The location was peaceful and quiet, and the suite had everything we needed.
Cons: It would have been helpful to have a dish drainer for when we were doing dishes.
Location: Mesquite Bay, Lake Havasu National Wildlife Refuge, is perfect for a morning walk. If you like to hike, SARA Park. Rotary Park. Mudshark Brewery.
The Sands on the Fairway is an older building, so if you are expecting the latest, do not stay here. For us, it was perfect. It had everything we wanted - a suite with two bathrooms, two bedrooms and a kitchen. You could see Lake Havasu and the mountains from the chairs outside our room. There was a pool, but it was cool when we were there, so we didn't swim. It has a coin laundry and a whirlpool spa. The kitchen had a full size fridge, two electric stove top burners, toaster, microwave and enough pans, plates, etc. for us to make our breakfast every day. There were some long-term renters but they were very polite and never loud. The staff was helpful with directions and an extra blanket. The thing we liked the most was the fact that the Inn was a few miles north of the town, so it was very quiet and relaxing. If you want to be in the hustle and bustle of Lake Havasu City, don't stay here. You will need to drive to restaurants. When walking around the city, we both commented that we were glad we had not chosen the other two places we were considering. Bottom line - the place is old and probably has seen better days but it was very clean and quiet.
