We were a little uncertain about this motel but it was perfect for sleeping at night after wine tasting. It was a huge room with a very comfortable bed. We would stay here again if we are in the area!

The Sandman Motel offered good value for the money. Consider what you usually get at this range, especially as close to the high-end wine country, then make a determination. Our room was comfortable, clean, and quiet (both in terms of outside noise and noise from adjoining rooms). Good water pressure, and plenty of hot water. The front desk team was... More

Can't believe housekeeping are knocking on door at 8.30am!! Checkout is 12noon!! Not good!! Reminder to reception staff - we are your customers, without us you would not have a job. Please don't act as though you are doing us a favour by us staying here. Very noisy all night.

After reading the reviews of this motel, I expected someplace a cut above the average motel at this price; if anything, it seemed a cut below. The front desk staff were adequate, not special, but certainly not the horrorshow described in one or two of the other reviews. The room was small-ish, nice tv, good bed, fair linens (had some...

This is a nice, big inn, conveniently located and apparently well maintained. Our room was large and well equipped, ad the breakfast was excellent. We didn't use the pool but could se that it was larger and nicer than most places. Ours was a quick overnight on the way north and it served our purposes well. That said, I have... More

This place has potential! Big rooms and strategic location. However: Cleaning the room is under average, the carpet is very dirty (tried to clean a stain - black towel!!) the worst part is the staff: incompetent to really help! Unfriendly with a bad attitude! Dear Manager: You might be making enough money so you do not have to upgrade staff... More

While this hotel was fine, and the breakfast was fine, the front desk staff is AWFUL. When I checked in (on a Saturday), there were two clerks behind the front desk. One old woman, and one (very angry hateful) woman with short dark hair in her 50s or early 60s. The old woman was confused, and even though our reservation... More

We were looking to make a last-minute reservation for Memorial Day weekend getaway with our three young kids. Sandman was quite a bit cheaper than the next best thing, so we thought we'd take a chance on it. We were thrilled with the value: nice clean rooms, comfortable beds, a decent free breakfast, and a decent pool area. The Sandman... More

Located on the northern end of Santa Rosa, the place is much larger than we expected. For the price we found our room very comfortable and clean. You would think there would be highway noise, but we heard nothing. The pool is very large and never crowded. The breakfast was good. My only complaint: the breakfast area was smaller than... More

Stayed here over the 4th of July holiday weekend. Of the various options in the area, Sandman Inn was by far the best value. And the beds were amazing - definitely not motel quality. Sure, it's no frills, but you can't beat the price.
