I was coming to the Okanagan with a friend for a weekend to check out some housing in Summerland. I finally decided on the Sandman in Penticton after looking at other hotel rates available. Since I was aiming more for a budget stay, the Sandman did indeed have the lowest price (and most amenities offered for the price) listed on the BCAA travel website.
I was really impressed with our stay. The lobby looks really welcoming and the staff at the front desk were incredibly friendly. After walking into our room, my friend and I were amazed at how spacious and comfortable our 2 Double Bed Suite was. Right across our room was the exercise area equipped with a few machines (eg. Elliptical) which faces the indoor heated pool and spa below.
For a weekend stay, it had everything I wanted. The hotel looked really nice, but I believe the place has been previously renovated since I read some bad reviews which stressed on bad decor and carpeting. Another review complained of bed bugs but I did a quick check around the room and mattresses and it seemed clean.
The only downside was that in between the double-pane windows were a pile of dead bugs which was a bit unpleasant to look at, but aside from that, everything else was great. Would love to come back!More
