“Don't let the exterior put you off”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 10, 2012

This hotel is more than adequate for a night's stay on your way either into our out of the Rockies. We stayed for one night as part of a tour of Western Canada.

On arrival we were dubious, it looked a bit sketchy but once we got through the front door and were greeted by friendly, helpful staff and a pleasant (if a bit small) room which was just what we needed, we relaxed.

Free wifi and a hot shower and a good nights sleep, what else do you need?

The front desk in this hotel were EXCELLENT. The young man that checked us in answered our many questions - he was so polite and informative he should be promoted. Also the older gentleman we saw later was more than helpful, even digging out telephone numbers for the take away pizza we craved!! the staff in the Dennys adjacent were also patient, polite and helpful. The hotel itself was spotlessly clean but old fashioned and in need of a make over and new beds. Such a shame as the staff were definitely its best assets. Management take note and hold on to your staff!

You are right, our staff is our best asset and they will always be the case as they work very hard to make sure that you enjoy your stay while in Kamloops. Our beds were recently upgraged to all new pillow top mattresses and we continue to make improvements in all area of the hotel and it is your feedback that help us plan these changes.

Passing through town on our way back from Vancouver.
It was good price, had friendly staff, and an average room & bed.
Parking wasn't an issue. I would stay there again, but will most likely try for another hotel.

I love the Sandman inn Kamloops, it is far better than some of the others. I stay there to accumulate points for a free night. They are very accomodating and the staff is always so friendly. I have stayed there at least 3 times and have no complaints. I will continue to stay there.

Room Tip: I like the rooms at the front, bottom floor.

3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 4, 2011

We stopped here for a night, found the hotel fine. Our queen room was right across from the check in desk, pretty small and noisy with the traffic around the front desk. The bed was very uncomfortable, almost tilted or slanted to one side. We didn't sleep well, and the noise started very early in the AM with people and their luggage making their way to the front desk.
Room did have AC, all ammenities including fridge and coffee pot, bathroom was very small with vanity / sink outside in the main room area. There's also free wifi. We ate breakfast at Denny's which is right beside and was fine.

Room Tip: Make sure you don't stay in room #235 - other rooms further from front desk may be ok
