The location is nothing to write home about, but the rooms are comfortable and we had a very warm welcome. Staff were helpful in recommending places to eat - but i nal honesty, there is not a lot in Smithers. In short, fine for a night, but probably not for a longer stay - unless one is skiing in the...

The power was out when we arrived but that did not stop us from being able to check in. The front desk was very friendly and provided rags to clean our motorcycles. This hotel provided good value for our stay.

This place needs a coat of paint but its OK and economical. The rooms and bathroom are a little small but everything is functional. The Tazzy at the front desk was pleasant and theres a Tim Hortons not more than 40 feet from the front door which was convenient.

Called in at the last minute to get a room and was provided with friendly service. The room was about $20 cheaper than similar properties in Smithers and was very clean. Had a working microwave and small fridge. The TV worked just fine. There is wireless internet on all floors that worked perfectly. Basically a perfect visit.

I had a very small, 1 double bed room at the top of the stairs, so it was noisy with people coming, going and talking in the hall. There's a Tim Horton's right next to the Inn, so that was convenient for food, but could be noisy if you have a room on that side. There is no elevator, so... More

We stayed at the Sandman with our senior boys basketball team. We had many rooms. The boys were able to be a little loud with no complaints so that was good. The rooms are older with brick walls but they are clean. The staff was good. We had no complaints about our stay. The price of room is low.

There are hotels that advertise "pet friendly," but are barely pet tolerant. The Smithers Sandman, however, is exactly what a you'd expect a small town hotel to be: friendly, clean and cozy. Nothig fancy about the room, perhaps a little small given the size of the furniture, but it was bright, clean and included a fridge & microwave. The owner,... More

Upon arrival staff was confused and quickly became anxious about accommodating our 38foot truck which requires being plugged in. A space was found and no one was unkind about it. The rooms were quite old and a bit worn but everything had been scrubbed and nothing appeared unclean. Unfortunately our windows faced out to the Tim Hortons next door and... More

I should have read the reviews. I am travelling with my mom. She walks with a cane, and cannot do stairs. The very steep stairs coming into the hotel (no ramp) were very difficult for her. No elevator, however when the staff saw my mom's cane, they quickly got her onto the main floor. The rooms have been updated to... More
