This hotel is OK. Nothing special, nothing bad. Don't expect a lot of luxury bit also expect a clean room with friendly staff. Once people. There is a restaurant 24/7 next to the hotel, with direct access to it.

Stayed overnight while in town for work. Rooms not huge but adequate. Certainly not fancy or luxurious. Hallways are nice though. Bathroom was tiny! You have to close the door to use the toilet and the sink is outside the bathroom. Water pressure in the shower was not fantastic although the rain shower head made up for it somewhat. My... More

We stayed in this hotel once before and the room was ok. It wasn't very clean but it worked for one night. We were going to stay there again and the woman at the front desk was horribly rude. We asked if we could see the room first and she said "really?! When I'm THIS busy?!" Needless to say, we... More

Sandmandan, General Manager at Sandman Inn Cranbrook, responded to this review

Thank you for your review. "Horrible, rude service" is definitely a disconcerting phrase I do not like to hear when someone describes a staff member at our property. The behaviour you describe is not encouraged nor is it tolerated at our hotel. I am a staunch proponent of promoting and exhibiting excellence in service. I would invite you to contact... More

I would not recommend this hotel. The rooms are dirty and the service was not great. I was in a room beside a pet designated room and a dog was barking nonstop for 2 hours. When I called the front desk the women pretty much said to bad and did not offer to switch my room. Not impressed‼️

Sandmandan, General Manager at Sandman Inn Cranbrook, responded to this review

Thank you for your review. A person who has had a negative experience at our property is always a concern to me. A dog left unattended in a room and as a result continues to bark is not acceptable. The offer to move rooms is an instruction I clearly give to staff and will reiterate this directive as a result... More

Good motel for a restful night's sleep but do be sure to ask for a room that is not alongside the railroad track. The other side of the motel is very quiet. Rooms are comfortable, clean and somewhat smaller than rooms in the U.S. for the same price. Halls are in need of new carpet. No breakfast included but there... More

Oh, those railroad tracks. As you say in your review, "ask for a room away from the tracks." Comfortable rooms and cleanliness are definitely high on our priority list in maintaining an excellent property in which to spend some time . I am happy you enjoyed your stay and hope that you will come back and visit us in Cranbrook.... More

We recently stayed at the Sandman in Cranbrook during our motorcycle trip. We had wonderfully friendly service together with a very comfortable room. Everything was clean and fresh. It was a great stop and we will definetely stop here on our next trip.

Thank your for your review. I make it a practice to respond to all reviews, both positive and negative. It surely sounds like you had a horrible experience at our property. We always strive to provide the best service and that includes granting a late check out if at all possible. It sounds like the front desk was able to... More

My family was gathering in Cranbrook for an overdue family reunion. The plan was to fish, hike and enjoy the Cdn Rockies. As many were coming from long distances, we needed to keep the costs down where possible while not sacrificing quality and comfort. We booked rooms at the Sandman and were thankful we did. They offered exceptional rates for... More

It's okay, we arrived late and tired, the rooms nothing special. The bathroom you have to go in , reach behind , shut the door then back up, to use the toilet. The girl at the front desk was very nice. Over priced, thats for sure. But I'm finding anything in cranbrook is high.

Thanks for your review. Admittedly, our bathrooms are small and that is why we have the sink, etc. located in a separate area. Thanks for your kind comments on the front desk girl. We hope you will decide to stay with us on your next visit. Regards, Dan Schellenberg General Manager More

Typical old hotel. Rooms were very small, bathrooms were even smaller. First room we were checked into was "supposed" to be a king suite with a pull out couch. Got up to room and only found 1 queen bed and a small chair....no couch. The inside access door to the adjoining room was broken as well. The deadbolt lock was... More

Thanks for your review. The Cranbrook property was built in 1973 and as you say, it is not as bright and modern as some of our other properties; however, we are continuing to make renovations to bring the property up to more current standards. The first room you described is not our typical "king room" as it did not contain... More
