Moderately priced, comfortable and clean. Breckfast is included with your stay but not much to choose from. There is a swimming pool but did not use it. A popular motel because it was full the 3 nights we were there. Handicap rooms are available with large bathrooms equipped for handicap bathing.

My husband and I go occasionally to the Santa Rosa area to visit friends, and have tried several different motels/hotels. The Sandman is now our 1st choice. The price is right, the beds were comfortable, the rooms were clean and have everything you want, and the breakfast (included!) was good too! They even have a very attractive and large pool... More

I was traveling alone and wanted to minimize costs without getting "roughing it" too much. The reviews here summed it up well. When I arrived, I was offered some choice in rooms, and selected an upstairs room in the corner of a building, which turned out to be very quiet. The layout of the room was a bit unusual -... More

Based on Trip Advisor reviews, we made reservations 2 months in advance for two rooms for two nights. I expected more. The rooms are in desperate need of updating. Carpet has seen its better days. Fixtures have been around a while and the lighting is poor to read by. The bedding was ok but I don't think the towels have... More

Booked most of our hotels when traveling but since we were unsure of where we'd be or dates we decided to "wing it". We got lucky with the Sandman. Being gone for over two weeks we tried to be frugal whenever we could with out cheating ourselves of comfort. The Sandman came thru on both accounts. The bedding was fine,... More

This hotel is exactly what is cracked up to be, a good place to sleep at a fair price! Really nice front desk and the breakfast was modest but once again it was clean and the food was good. You will be happy you stayed here unless you are expecting the Ritz!

Front staff was efficient and the room was very nice. Room was clean and comfortable and bathroom nice as well. Breakfast area was very nice out by the pool even though it was a walk to get there but the property is very large. There was nothing special about the breakfast but it was sufficient. I would stay here again.... More

We stayed here as part of a wedding block. The room was nothing fancy, and the front desk staff was a bit rude. The pool area was nice and the free breakfast was very good. Overall a reasonable motel if you are looking for something inexpensive in wine country. Parking was also a bit difficult.

Surprisingly updated for an old-school property. Friendly staff, clean room, lovely complimentary breakfast in the pool area. Would never know it was right off the freeway -- not too noisy and actually pretty charming.

Room was clean and air conditioned. Continental breakfast - cereal, boiled eggs, bread/ bagels, ale your own waffles, yogurt, coffee, tea. Had breakfast by the pool. No fault of the hotel, adjacent guests very loud and noisy.
