Apparently there are three Sandman motels in Libby so the first challenge is to find the right one, especially if you arrive in the evening. After one with a closed sign, we found the correct one. We had made a reservation on the computer that afternoon, but the clerk did not know how to find it. Fortunately, they had vacancies.... More

I stayed at the Sandman for 2 weeks on a job. The owners could not have been more accommodating, friendly, courteous, or welcoming. The rooms are simple. A bed, lounge/recliner, a mini-fridge, flatscreen, AC, and a microwave. They take pride in cleanliness and do a great job taking care of the place. Bbq in the back and a simple continental... More

Clean, roomy, older, with minimal frills (one small bar od soap, one tsp shampoo/person, half light bulbs missing). Free wifi, nice hot water, mini fridge and microwave. Bed pretty good. Small complimentary breakfast bat. Nice people. Price appropriate.

Stayed here on the way to Lake Koocanusa, very friendly owners, free breakfast and nice rooms. Best air conditioning unit I've seen in any motel and I like the old school neon which glows every night. There is also a bbq out back for use and pick nick tables. Definitely will return!

This motel looked very cute upon arrival, but that thought quickly went away upon seeing the room. There were almost no electrical outlets in the room, so it was almost impossible to plug in any electronics like a computer or to charge a cell phone. The continental breakfast was so poor that we chose to pass it up.

Passing through Libby we stayed at The Sandman. The owner was extremely nice and enjoyable to visit with. The rooms were clean and comfortable for the price. Were pleasantly surprised that a continental breakfast (standard cereal and bagel) was served in the small lobby. Would stay here again.

The Sandman is the first motel on your left as you come into Libby from the west on US Highway 2. It's very reasonably priced and is clean. I was particularly impressed by the lighting, which, unlike so many motels & hotels, was ample: it was easy to read in bed!

Arrived here tired after a long day and not finding a place to stay in Troy. I remembered that a favorite author of mine, Rick Bass, had stayed here. We thought it very clean and really nice! Reminded me of the motel styles back in the day. We had a second floor room and there were chairs outside our door... More

We stayed at the Sandman Motel recently and were pleasantly surprised at how nice and well appointed the rooms were. The king bed was very comfortable and had a rustic but lovely headboard. In the back of the motel is a large fenced, grass area for our furry friend to run and play after being in the car a lot.... More

There are two Sandman Motels in Libby, The Sandman-Down Under, and the Sandman, which is on Rt. 2 toward the north end of the town. It is set back from the street, which blocks any traffic noise. The Sandman is an older motel, with some rooms single story and a section that has a second floor. It has been very... More
