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. Moxie's Grill, which is part of the Sandman Hotel, surprised as with a... More

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

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
