This is a great hotel right next door to a Denny's. The rooms were very clean and comfy. With a frig and coffee maker it is sufficient for a longer stay. I must say though that there were way too many stairs! If you have an issue with mobility this is not the place for you! Stairs to get to... More

Wife and I stayed one night on Mar 4th. Queen bed was very comfortable! Location is basically downtown and very walkable or a short drive to downtown amenities. We took a game at the Men's Brier and was just a short easy drive to Interior Savings Center and later to the Brier Patch. Very convenient! The front desk even had... More

We were upgraded to a suite which had a kitchen and two beds . It was clean, spacious and comfortable. The wifi worked well and the hotel has a Denny's onsite. It is located downtown and you can park your car and walk within the city center. the staff were all very friendly and helpful. The hotel doesn't have a... More

As you noted, Denny's is on site and they offer a better choice of breakfast than we could offer and therefore we invte our... More

This is an old hotel that does not have an elevator. The rooms are average at best and the internet was decent. I think the TA rating of bottom third in Kamloops is about where this hotel should be. I would not stay here again, you can stay in the same quality of hotel for $20 less along gasoline alley

We stayed there only for one night on our way to Sun Peaks. The room was clean and had everything we wanted: a bed. it's just a very simple and Basic hotel nothing fancy. Maybe they should do some renovations this year it would be a good thing. But nothing bad to say about this Hotel. Perfect for a one... More

If your looking for a place that offers the following, book here right away: 3 story walk up no elevator, stained carpet through out the property, holes in walls in hall way, missing tiles in the bathroom.

Difficult to locate but once we had found the Sandman, everything ran smoothly. Very friendly reception staff. No lift, but not too difficult to make it to the first floor. Spacious room with tea/coffee facilities, T.V., plenty of storage. Nice bathroom although the vanity unit was in the room, rather than in the bathroom. Not a major issue. Reasonably priced... More

The Sandman in Kamloops, like the Sandman in Edmonton, is old and tired. The rooms may be clean but they are so much in need of an update. Get rid of the patterned comforters, paint the doors, new carpet would be a bonus. etc. Sorry can not stay here anymore ... the decor just gives me the willies.
