We stopped here for a one night stay on our way thru. Honestly I was looking for a more authentic stay somewhere in the mountains but this is where we got tired! This is an older property with a nice lobby and a pretty indoor pool area but it was far too hot for us to use. We walked in... More

Just looking for a stop over hotel on our way home to Saskatchewan and we happened to stop at the Sandman. The Lady at reception was exceptionally helpful and probably gave us the best explanation on what we could expect at the hotel. I wish I had taken her name. The reception dog was awesome too :-)

One of there older locations but still nice. Beds were nice, room was clean. We got a room with three beds for the family which was great. Internet was stable for all of us with a few minor disconnects. Enjoyed the pool/atrium/hot tub. A couple drawbacks is the whirlpool is weak, upholstery on the chairs in our room need a... More

Sometimes we are not sure where we will end up at the end of the day and it was nice to find a really nice hotel at a reasonable price. The room was very clean, the bed was extremely comfortable and the breakfast the next morning was really appreciated. We also appreciate the free WI FI with good solid strength.... More

We stayed at this hotel for the weekend, while our girls played in the Regional Fastpitch tournament in Salmo. FYI - it's about a half hour drive to Salmo. Each time I called the hotel (reservation, request early check in, change dates etc.) the front desk team was professional and accommodating. We did arrive early to the hotel and checking... More

The hotel was as expected for a Sandman. Check-in was slow, but room was fine with comfy beds. Pool area is a bit dark, but looked nice enough (we did not have time for a swim). Well located with easy access from Highway 3 and a mall across the street with a Boston Pizza and some other places to eat.... More

Overall a very pleasant stay. Rooms well appointed and clean. Amenities included breakfast room, great pool and easy parking. Service throughout was good. I actually saw very few staff in and around the hotel but someone always seemed to be there when I needed something. The hotel also provided storage space for over sized items. There was touch of formality... More

We finally settled on the Sandman after we had checked out other rooms in the area. We also had had a great experience at a Sandman near Vancouver. Unfortunately this was not the same quality and was very tired and in need of an upgrade. It is easy to find and staff were good and it is pet friendly. The... More

Stayed overnight during our travels. I must say Sherrill at the front counter was fantastic. Made sure we had a room by the pool n provided our dog with some snobby snacks. Rooms were very clean little outdated. Price was good. Beds were nice and comfortable. Would stay again.
