We nearly cancelled our booking here because of all the negative reviews, however we were happy with our stay here. If you read the hotel class, what we got was fine particularly given the price. The rooms were clean ad comfortable, the grill on site was nice and the staff were helpful. Happy to come back.

Yes I admit that the elevator was old, bar was average. But it depends on what was the purpose of your trip. For a romantic vacation or for fun, i will say this is not your best choice. For business, it is perfect. You basically need a very comfortable bed, to revitalize and unwind. Its close proximity to the free... More

I often stay at this hotel due to its affordable rates and relatively affordable parking for downtown Calgary. The location is right off a train stop which is handy when communiting within the downtown area, but the area is not one that I would feel comfortable travelling alone due to what appears to be many homeless people. Also, I have... More

Well the check in was hard work. If we had not had our credit card with us we wouldn't of been able to check in. The receptionist was rather abrupt with us in explaining the situation (also wouldn't allow us to use our travel money card for pre authorisation) room was fine, spacious and comfortable. Higher floor level wifi was... More

Horrible place. Couldn't check in because I had no credit card. There was no mention of this when I booked it. Me and my girlfriend traveled all day to get there and we were turned away at night time with no place to stay. Trip was ruined.

Stayed for one night after flying to Calgary and travelling to Banff the day after. Great staff, nice room (not amazing, but what would be expected for the very reasonable price), easy parking and great location.

Arrived to find a problem with our booking (not the Hotels fault), but the Front Office staff worked really hard to sort it out - thank you Massum. Eventually upgraded to a room with a kitchenette which was perfect for us so we stayed an extra couple of nights. Ideal location for the Ctrain (incidentally we didn't find it noisy... More

Close to city centre and beside the transport network but not disturbing.Excellent reception on their feet; doubles as guide service to economise transport systems. Rooms good but room service always late.Hotel economises beyond tolerable limits.Maxis the cafe girls don't care to serve customers food not worth the price paid. Plenty eating places around. We stayed 4 days and were served... More

My wife three year old daughter and I recently checked in to this hotel and it was just terrible. Burn holes all throughout furniture, pulled out sofa bed and found old dirty used kleenex, tattered worn bedding, dirty stained carpets, toilet was dirty and smelled awful. Immediately checked out

Thank you for your review following your experience with us yesterday. Please accept my apologies for the substandard condition of the furnishings and cleanliness of the room. This is certainly not the level of accommodation we strive to provide and all items raised have been brought to the attention of the housekeeping and maintenance departments so they may be addressed.

We stayed at the Sandman after a 9 1/2 hr. flight. We were greeted by friendly staff and were given a room with a view. The air-conditioning was quiet ,after a small hitch with our bathroom lock on two occasions I would say that some rooms need a bit of TLC .The room was comfortable and okay for an overnight... More
