“Average Hotel - Good Location”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 8, 2013

You get what you pay for but there are better deals. The property was quite dated with the exception of the lobby which was not bad. It's located in the downtown core which is good for shopping and restaurants. Close to the Chrystal Palace for concerts.

Staff were very friendly. Property is very centrally located but that brings on the unsavoury characters hanging around drunk right by the front door. If I needed to be close to everything and didn't have a vehicle I may stay here again but there are certainly nicer properties a short cab ride from downtown. The property is dated but has some amenities. Denny's is right there -- don't even need to go outside, same with a bar. An Earls is right in the same parking lot and I believe the concert venue is right across the way.. so if you're in GP for concerts, shopping or hanging with your pals and just need a place to sleep that is convenient for walking this would be ok.

Room Tip: 4rth floor is further from the noise. Don't stay on 1st as the upper floors require a key card f...

Recently stayed at the sandman. My room was clean comfortable and had the king bed I requested. I will admit that it was a bit loud on the weekend with partying work crews, and this is also the reason the hallways are untidy. The work crews don't remove their dirty boots and track in mud. I did not have coffee left in my room the first day and a quick call to the front desk the problem was rectified with an apology and a genuine smile. Thank you so much to the hard working staff, I will definitely be back.

nice looking and great location but man there are two bard in stones throw of the hotel...not good for a Friday or Saturday stay here. A very good location though but not so much if your just looking for a good night sleep

Room Tip: for sure get the south side of the biulding if at all possable

Went there for a girls weekend and i had no complaints. The room was clean and the staff were really nice, plus it is a convenient spot to stay since dennys is right in the building as well as bar one.

Checked in. No resevation. So the gal at the counter (after waiting patiently a very long time. LONG TIME) asked the gentleman behind me if he had a reservation! So back to the line I GO!! Seriously folks. Back behind I go. My turn again comes. Receptionest is getting over-cold flu (she did not specify) coughed, pawed my ID and credit card...I wandered the lobby while said pawing was ongoing...looking for hand sanitizer. No sanitizer anywhere. And I looked. Got to room. Sanitized everything that came in contact with front desk and showered. Seroiusly. I cannot afford to get the flu...

Wakled into the room...hit the lights and look! Heating register guard is on the ground. A long piece of hardware not to notice. NOBODY CARES HERE!!!!! Loud...noisy, wallpaper in halways peeling (how could management not notice wallpaper peeling in commons????).

An all around chateau crap hole. Never again. Not one positive thing to say. Never had it that bad. Stay in your car if this is the only place available in Grande Prairie. You'll thank me.

Room Tip: Run away from here. You will thank me later :(

Pros: close to centre of town, friendly staff, easy access to computer/printer, Denny's attached for breakfast
Cons: room needs updated (I stayed on main floor), bathroom fixtures need updated (look stained), old TV, old bedspreads, noisy - can hear people walking overhead and down the stairwells.
