Sandman Inn McBride
Ranked #3 of 3 Hotels in McBride
Reviewed August 2, 2013

This was my first stay at this hotel, and although I like the Sandman's rewards (stay 12 nights get 1 night free), I'm not sure if I'll include this particular hotel in my future reservations. My job has me staying in hotels 44 weeks a year, and this is the only hotel I've encountered with 35 rooms and 7 air conditioners!! I'm sure it's GREAT in the winter,, but 30 degrees in the summer and a fan to blow hot air around doesn't quite cut it. The managers are great and will bend over backwards for their guests, but when it comes down to it, air conditioning is a requirement for comfort. This Sandman is located conveniently just off the highway and has a restaurant with good food and service. There is plenty of parking if you're towing a trailer and seems to be a popular spot for truckers and work crews. By the end of the year this hotel is getting remodeled and I'm sure it will look much better, but without air conditioning it will never be highly recommended.

Room Tip: ask for a room with A/C,, there are only 7, so good luck

We found that the Inn provided a reasonable level of comfort, cleanliness and value for money. It is a bit dated and could do with some attention to re-deorating. We were on the 2nd level and found the lack of lift a minor inconvenience, plus the in-room tea/coffee provides only powdered whitener and when we asked for milk or creamer were told that we could buy it in the restaurant - but other than that; no problems of note. On the plus side our room had a view that would have cost lots extra at a resort.

This was our second stay at the Sandman in McBride, so we were aware there is no air conditioning. When we booked this property online a month in advance of our stay, we specifically requested a room on the second level facing east away from the evening sunshine. Upon check in we were informed there were no rooms available in the location we'd requested. After insisting (on a couple of occasions) our room request was granted. Other than that, our stay was very pleasant. The room was clean and the beds comfortable. Breakfast the following morning in the attached restaurant was good. We'd certainly stay here again.

Room Tip: Since there's no air conditioning, book a room on the east side facing away from the evening sun...

We stayed here in the summer. The Sandman Hotel Group seems to have its property in Mcbride on the back burner - there is no air conditioning, nor were there enough fans to go around. The manager, however, went out of his way to make our stay as pleasant as he could by offering us an east facing room. Housekeeping does an excellent job of keeping this outdated facility clean, fresh and welcoming

I have stayed at this location twice. This is not at all the quality that I would expect from a sandman. This establishment needs some serious TLC. Everywhere I looked, hallways, room, and restaurant. Room was dated small and stuffy. It was very clean though. There was some heavy curtains which was great for keeping out the light when I slept. There was a cute little area in the front with a nice fireplace. If I could have rolled up on a sofa right there, it would have been a much better experience. There is a restaurant attached, with disappointing menu options, but the food was adequate.

The price was high for the quality, but I have not stayed anywhere else to see if it fits in to what the region's price-to-quality ratio would be. I have heard there are places that are a better value.

The saving grace of this establishment, is the staff are very friendly.

Stayed in McBride for a couple of nights to escape the big city. Options are limited in the village of McBride but this is a very good place to stay. Can't miss the location since it's right off of highway 16 and across the street from the Husky. Despite it being a dated facility it had a mom and pop operation feel to it and the staff we're friendly to chat with. Under renovation at the time of my visit was the family restaurant, but it had a nice lounge in the den to catch the game and have a few adult beverages. Worthy of another stay if I visit McBride.

We stayed here as a family in February. Rooms were tight in McBride and of couse we booked late and stuffed 5 of us into a room meant for 4. The staff was extremely accomodating. They definately go "the extra" mile to make sure your stay is enjoyable. Brought us everything that we would need. Even larger glasses and a bigger ice bucket. They were fantastic. The room was comfortable and clean. The shower head was amazing after a long day up on the mountains. Lots of parking for our vehicle and sled trailer. They also have a security guard that walks the grounds at night to make sure your belongings remain yours. Although we only had breakfast at the hotel it was hearty and reasonable. Would definately stay there again. But if all the children are coming we will get two rooms.
