We stayed at the Sandman well in Libby. I'm a manager of a larger hotel in Dillon Montana, I met Shane the owner and he was very polite and nice. The rooms were good for an older hotel. They take very good care of the property. We will stay again if we are in Libby. Thank you for the great... More

The room was clean, but small. Owners have tried to upgrade some things.. Breakfast minimal, we went to Mickey D's. The host was interesting ( from Australia). Best thing about Libby were the falls where they filmed part of the movie " Revelent " They are not to be missed..

Our rooms were, as advertised, impeccably clean. This motel is a nice, modest little place next to the highway. The staff were very welcoming and efficient - and our rooms were spacious and quaint. If you wanted a simple base camp for a week's outdoor activities - I'd strongly recommend the Sandman. Very reasonably priced, too.

The outside look of the motel is not too desirable but wait till you look inside. The room was very clean, smelled good, and the beds were wonderful. The mini fridge and microwave were a nice treat. Hard to find though.

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

Hello, I am the owner of the Sandman Motel. I deeply apologize for your awful experience with the night clerk and her attitude towards the advertised time for breakfast. As the owner I take responsibility for your experience. I guarantee that this would have never happened on any scale on any other day but it seems as though when I... 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

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!
