Wow! I was blown away at the courtesy shown to us visiting the city for the Santa Rosa Half Marathon. Usually hotels can barely keep their annoyance hidden at the flood of us overwhelming their city. This hotel had automatically given all the runners a late checkout to 1 p.m. Our room was clean, and the bed was comfortable. My... More

We were here for a run cation with friends. The pool area with jacuzzi was well used by us for socializing together and for recovering after a half or full marathon. There is a Trader Joe's practically next door, and a roomy refrigerator that makes healthy eating feasible while staying here. It's also a 1.4 mile walk to the Charles... More

We stayed here based on reviews from Trip Advisor and were not disappointed. This motel is clean, comfortable, and well-managed. Although "no frills," all necessary amenities are provided. The pool and Jacuzzi are especially nice and well-maintained with ample chaise lounges, tables, and chairs. I was surprised at the generous breakfast offerings at no extra cost with the option of...

Reading the other reviews on this property, we booked for a one night stay in August. The property and staff exceeded our expectations, ( based on those other reviews we read), as the property was well maintained a the staff could not have been more accommodating. The next time we are in Santa Rosa, we will lodge here again.

I paid for this place for aprox $80 a night for a Queen room. Got it on a web discount. I was looking on Orbitz but all I found were expensive hotels for >$120 a night. Found this place on Google Maps and I am so glad I did. For $80 I get a very clean room, a comfortable clean... More

We were here for one night only, and found the place to be a great value. Huge pool, well equipped room, easy access to 101 and downtown Santa Rosa. Lots, of contractors stayed here, but made little noise in the morning as they headed off to work

I was traveling here with my dog for a business trip and needed a relatively cheap place that would accept pets. A fellow associate of mine recommended the Sandman so I gave it a try. While it is an older hotel my room had recently been painted and overall it was clean and nice to stay in. The king bed... More

The staff and accommodations were first class. The breakfast that they call "continental" was about as good a free breakfast as I have found at any motel. I would strongly recommend the Sandman. I'll be back!

You won't find anywhere to stay in the summer in this part of the country for less, certainly not a place as nice as this one. Sandman Santa Rosa is right off highway 101 and conveniently located if you have a car and want to tour the wine country; Alexander Valley, Sonoma and Napa areas are all 30 min. to... More

We stayed one night while passing through the area. Wish we could have stayed longer. Very friendly staff, updated clean rooms, nice heated pool, comfortable beds, quiet location and good breakfast. I don't have one bad thing to say about our stay here. I wish more motel owners and employees took as much pride in their property as Sandman staff... More
