Yet it's so disappointing. The roof leading to the pool is no where near finished and looks very shoddy. The pool itself is nice; however their warm tub (to call it a hot tub would be far too generous) left a LOT to be desired. Oh and if that's a Queen-sized bed I'll eat my hat.

Dear Camulius, Thank you for your feedback. We recently finished installing new corridor pressurization units and are in the process of repairing the ceiling. As for the pool, I apologize the hot tub water was warm, we do check the temperature daily to comply with Alberta Health Standards. I certainly hope you give us another chance to live up to... More

very clean hotel, easy access from the QE II, gas stations and restaurants near by, Moxies attached to the hotel, open for break fast. Room clean with comfortable bed. Internet did not work. Apparently they had problems, I was able to connect in the lobby. Nice place if one is just passing through town and needs a place to sleep.

We were tired and dazed from travelling too long without planning our route very well, when we happened to find this hotel. We were very impressed by the decor--restful neutral colours and museum-worthy photos, and the helpfulness of the staff. The price was very reasonable as well.

Close to restaurants. Nice staff. Rooms were nice. An okay price. I would probably ask for a quieter room next time that I come but oh well. Parking wasn't an issue. Very accommodating. I travel a lot to red deer and never had an issue here

I was able to stay at the Sandman for five nights at the beginning of May. I was a bit leery, as there appeared to be construction going on. However, I heard nothing, and it was quiet. The beds was very comfortable and clean, as was the room, although the carpet had a few odd stains here and there. Once... More

Very pleased with my recent stay. My room was above the normal standard of those multi chain hotels. My request for a microwave was dealt with quickly and efficiently. But what set this hotel apart was the friendliness of the night desk clerks. Both David and David informed me and enlightened me about the area and its amenities. In addition... More

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
