“Average but convenient”
Reviewed August 19, 2012

Conveniently located, friendly staff, enough parking. Room was a bit cramped, floor carpet was dirty and old. Breakfast NOT included...there is Moxie's restaurant right there, and there are a couple of fast food restaurants nearby. Costco is less than 5 minutes away.

Room Tip: If you are a late arrival, expect the last available room with no choice of relocation if you don...

The customer service was great but the place was outdated and old. The location was pretty central and convenient. The bed sheet and covers were extremely old. I expected to have a flat screen but there wasn't. There is a ticket check-in the lobby which is pretty great. Lastly, there was a spider crawling in the hotel. Ew.

The room was a little small, on this my second visit and the airconditioning did not work well so did not have the best night's sleep. Would recommend skipping breakfast and popping into Tim Hortons. The pool is bigger than the Travel Lodge and enjoyed having a nice swim after the long flight from the UK. Would recommend having a fridge in the room and would request a larger room next time. The beds are very comfortable and the toiletries are nice.

The location is good and convenient, the room and service is fair. It is great to have the free transport to and from the airport. One thing to note about the hotel is the restaurant and bar at the ground floor is great for its price. I had a nice dinner there.

My wife and I were staying here on our way to points south, and got a rotten night's sleep due to the noisy air conditioner. It was too hot to leave it off, too noisy to leave on. Other than that beef, it is a quick shuttle to the airport, handy to downtown with a rail link closeish, and has a Moxie's attached. If you want to adventure a bit, you are in the heart of the asian food scene in Richmond.

Nice clean hotel conveniently located near the airport. Clean rooms reasonably
priced. Free shuttle to the airport, free parking if you need it. No breakfast included,
but there is a Tim Horton's across the street. We got a shuttle to the cruise port from
here and it cost around $14 each. We did eat a snack Moxie's, and the food was
very good, but it is noisy in there. We were surprised we did not hear any noise from
airplanes while in our room.

We stayed for a night in the Sandman before traveling on to Hope the following day. The hotel is easy to find from the airport, has free parking and upon check in the staff were friendly and efficient. Our room was clean and spacious with a small kitchenette, had a decent bathroom and was quiet considering proximity to airport and main roads.

We took the bed and breakfast option, and after last years stay at the Sandman signature we didn't expect much, however Moxies Grill was great for both dinner and breakfast, with friendly staff, good food and a not overly expensive menu. If you are looking for a stop off before traveling on, then this hotel is a good option!
