The Sands goes back to the 1950's. The building was modified over the years with a second story being added on. There were problems in the 1980's with crime in and around the motel so the local residents demanded it be closed. Even the Kronk Boxing Gym got involved. It was offering adult entertainment at the time. Eventually it was converted to a Victory Inn before closing again and demolished in 2018 or so. The original sign was very cool.
