I just went to the Sands website, and the current rack rate for all the dates I was seeking was $34. I decided to just book at that rate, instead of having to call, wait on hold, and speak to an actual human being for the $4 savings.

Thanks Barbie Death Camp, for reminding me to make my reservations!

I have a free upgrade on my account due to some issues during my last stay. Looking forward to staying in a suite for the return leg of my trip. :D

I've stayed at the Sands every burn I've attended, the whole hotel is teaming with Burners. As far as I'm concerned, wherever I am, is where the fun is! :wink:

Dang! I read it as teaming with burners--working in teams with burners. Totally missed teeming with burners...

Really appreciate this! I remember checking out your last year post when we were not in need of a hotel and thought hey I wonder if they setup this again:) A simple search helped me find your thread. Thank you for this:) We will be booking our pre night stay this week!

sooooo.... just about to make reservations and did some looking at the hotel online and I am seeing a lot of reviews about bed bugs at the sands.... even one of them from as recent as this spring.... its kind of a fear of mine to get them, has anyone here ever stayed there and has this even been an issue for you?

I've stayed there before, didn't have a problem. I know others that have stayed there as recently as January 2014, no problem.

This is what you do. When you enter the room put your bags on a hard surface (table, counter). Peel back the blanket, sheet and bottom sheet all the way. You should be able to see any bedbugs.

Remember anybody can write a review and even very nice places can have bedbugs...

Would this code be honored for same-day bookings?

Oh I understand. The thought of bringing bedbugs home pretty much terrifies me. I turn the bed back at every hotel regardless of rep, stars, reviews, etc. and I keep my bags off the carpet

No. They must be booked I believe at least 48 hours in advance with the cutoff being August 18.

Just made my reservation for Sept. 2; a campmate is covering inbound. Love this deal & seeing all the burners to help decompress after burn.
