Stayed here for 1 night at the end of April. The hotel has undergone a full reno, which is always good to see. The elevator now requires your key to access floors 2-4. I think more hotels should be going this route for added security. We checked in and headed up to our room and we were quite shocked at... More

I stayed at the sandman with my daughter for her birthday. We had a great time & would definately stay again. We stayed in a suite. It was very large & clean. We ordered room service & each had our own tv to watch a movie. I thought the room was very modern looking. We had a great time at... More

recently renovated rooms. Like putting lipstick on a pig. Narrow dark hallways. Cheap fixtures, and Finnish. Small crowded rooms. Lights did not work. I would try something else in Red Deer. Gym was dark damp and dirty. Pool small and dark. Poor wifi.

I've stayed at this hotel twice. The first time a pipe burst and there was a waterfall in the lobby but the room was okay. The second time I stayed the lobby was fine but the room was a nightmare. I'll let the pictures speak for themselves as nothing I can say would be positive. I won't stay at this... More

Checked in for a one night stay while travelling point to point. We were treated to a Moxie's Gift Card - which was very nice, unexpected and appreciated. The desk clerk let us know that the fitness centre and pool were just down the hall. Got ready and went to the pool; only to find out that it had been... More

This place is not a good stay. We are on the 2nd floor which REEKS like smoke, even though we're to be in a non-smoking room. Our room smells like paint fumes. Our main door and bathroom door don't even shut without a push from your shoulder. One pillow case was stained and dirty. The pullout bed and chair in... More

This property has been in Red Deer about 8 years and is a mid range property catering to a lot of business/construction clientele. Check in was friendly and courteous and the room was OK but don't look for anything special. Standard rooms with standard amenities that do the job if you are looking for a place to lay your head....
