“As advertised, clean accommodations.”
Reviewed August 6, 2012

Basic motel room, friendly staff, clean and comfortable. I would recommend this place to anyone, but emphasize the no frills. The breakfast is as plain as it comes, try the Libby Cafe for a good meal.

Room Tip: You can back your car up to your room door in units 11 - 20.

Shane H, Owner at Sandman Motel, responded to this review, June 14, 2014
Hello and welcome to the Sandman Motel’s review page. Firstly, as owners, my wife Yvonne and I (Shane) would like to thank previous and future guests for staying with us. We have owned the Sandman Motel for 15 years. The first 7.5 years we operated it ourselves and made sure all our guests we completely satisfied. Then we hired several different managers for the next 7 years, and learned we needed to come back and run our motel ourselves. We have moved back to our little motel about 6 months ago and things are going great. We take GREAT pride in our hospitality towards our customers, and they ALWAYS come first. Upon our return we have upgraded all our TV’s to FLAT SCREENS. We have put all new handcrafted log beds in all our rooms. We have upgraded our internet speed to be the fastest in town. Yvonne and I know at all times staff, including ourselves, must be kind and helpful to all our customers, our facilities must be sparkling clean at all times, and having great quality beds for a wonderful nights’ sleep. It’s so nice to be back and we pride ourselves in the outstanding reputation we have acquired and we will uphold that reputation to all of our guests. We go out of our way to accommodate everyone’s needs to make sure that they are exceptionally happy and are treated like family. We apologize to any previous complaints in regards to the Sandman Motel. We look forward to the future of accommodating everyone’s needs.
Sincerely,
Shane and Yvonne Hill (Owners of the Sandman Motel)

We booked the Sandman motel as the first stop on a motorcycle trip. It was a clean and basic room with a king-sized bed that was quite comfortable. The air conditioning worked well (important to my husband). Breakfast was nothing special, but it did get us started on our way.

Made a reservation in advance per website recommendation, for a king bed, finally got in the room after fighting with the door/lock for several minutes, first thing that hit me was it was 20 degrees hotter in the room than outside and it was warm outside, second thing, this is no king bed, turned the ac on, hum, blowing warm air, not helpful, husband looked at it, knobs are broken so they are not actually turning the controls, fortunetly he had needlenose plyers so we were able to make the nessecary adjustments, whenever I've stayed in warm climate areas before the ac units were left on for the arriving guests, website says new bed, when might that have been? If you sat on the side to put your shoes on you either slid off or sank in a hole. Well at least I can have a nice shower in the morning, oh yes if you like to stand in your dirty shower water because the tub is not draining. Lastly several slats were missing from the blinds on the window so they barley covered the it, don't accidently change your clothes standing to the side of the window, you will be giving anyone that walks by a show. Now you might say, you could have gone to the office to get a king room, have the ac unit looked at, etc, yes we could have but when you've been on the road for 10 hours and it's 9pm, you just want to get in your jammies, watch some TV and go to bed. This place might be worth $40 a night but not $70, that's for sure.

This is a small friendly Motel. Clean rooms. Just what you'd expect for a small town. I would love if they would add some yummy muffins, maybe some yogurt, and hot chocolate to the morning menu. Either stronger coffee or small coffee maker in room (along with some artificial sweetener like splenda as my son is Diabetic) would also be a nice feature, but an overall nice experience.

The Sandman is a motel. It's clean, but dated and very basic. The heater was quite loud and somewhat slow to kick in. Staff was friendly. The free breakfast was tiny - cereal, pre-made pancakes and waffles, and maybe bagels. Apparently it has a small water tank - timing showers was necessary. I can't comment on the value, as the room was provided by my prospective employer.

The Sandman advertises clean which is definitely true. The room was basic and dated. Don't expect any frills in accommodations and continental breakfast for about $75. The beds were comfortable, but the A/C was extremely loud and musty smelling.
