They have a slow or no wifi service. The room is noicy. You can ear everything outside and including the others rooms. Rooms needs some refresh but they are clean. Well located in the middle of the city and near good restaurants

Great little hotel, very clean and everything we needed including fast internet and great room service. Dennys diner across the car park is greatly convieneitnt and everyone is friendly. I would recommend this hotel.

First of all, there are 2 short flights of stairs to get to the check in desk. No luggage trolley, and wouldn't work, obviously, if there was one. Room, extremely small. If you are a large person, get prepared to stand in the bath tub, to close bathroom door. Not kidding. Had I known, we would have stayed at the Sandman Signature, for peanuts more.

Stayed here for one night on our road trip to Calgary. The rooms are very tired and dirty. Carpets worn. Do not stay here and would not recommend . Also not in a nice part of town didn't feel safe walking with our 10 year old daughter back to the hotel in the evening. Very basic accommodation

Rooms were very clean, parking was a little tight. Later in the evening the parking lot filled up fast. Rooms were updated. Super comfy beds and pillows. I'll be staying again for sure. Only complaint is we were put right off of the lobby so we could here everyone checking in and out of the hotel. And the door was sticky. Like the latch was hard to close you essentially had to slap the door to shut it.

My sons baseball team was in Kamloops this past weekend for a large baseball tournament with 25 teams. Our team had been given this hotel as one that the tournament organizers had blocked off rooms for teams. In total there were to be 13 or 14 rooms held by confirmations for us all as we had all booked via a link from the tournament. When we began to arrive 3 families were told that they no longer had rooms as the night staff had used whiteout to cancel the reservations for some unknown reason. I was told that my reservation was at the other Sandman hotel and no longer with the team. Even though I had called to confirm just the day before. Thankfully we were able to have rooms all together other than one parent who was travelling alone. Once in the rooms, as a group we had the following issues: - no towels - no toilet paper - ants in the kitchen - dried blood on towels and sheets - unclean bathrooms - keys that only worked for a few hours a day - one family were unable to enter their room for 2 hours due to their lock not working. Then had to remind the staff about the broken lock the next day to have it fixed. And we're told, "don't close your door if you leave" - A/C not working in a few rooms, guests were given a fan while temps were over 30 degrees - rooms not made up until 5pm, yet the cleaning chart sat in the hallway in the same spot for over 3 hours I do not recommend this hotel to anyone and suggest that Sandman look into their brand. While dealing with these issues, we were told the manager quit! We do not blame her!!

I stayed at the Sandman Inn in Kamloops on August 2nd with my wife on a roadtrip from Vancouver to Calgary, through the Canadian Rockies. This hotel is very nice considering the price. it's walking distance to downtown Kamloops and to the park. The Hotel offered everything we needed at a very reasonable price. The one thing that was missing is an Elevator. Not that big of a deal but if you have heavy luggage to carry, it can be a pain.

I was in town for a soccer tournament, so the whole team were staying at the hotel for three nights. Firstly, they put us in the wrong type of room, we were supposed to be in a Double room, but we were accidentally put into a room with 2 x doubles, now although that doesn't sound bad, hours later once we had unpacked all our clothes and food, they attempted to move us into the correct room, which we refused AND they charged us for a room with two doubles despite it being their error. I understand there was a big group of us checking in that day, but although we were part of a group, we should have been treated like any other guest. One of the entry doors to our room would not shut also, which meant we could not leave the room until it had been fixed. After four calls, they finally came out and fixed it. It wasn't all bad though, the rooms came with a kitchenette and were cosy enough, and a good proximity from the town centre. However, if it was up to me I would recommend finding somewhere better.

We stayed here for 2 nights after driving from Jasper on our way to Vancouver. To be honest 1 night would have been enough. I slept badly as it was 35 degrees outside and although the room had AC it was preset to 17 degrees and it wouldn't go lower. With no other ventilation in the room I found 17 degrees way too hot and stuffy for a good nights sleep. Also - and this may just be me - I found the pillows stuffed too well they didn't move when you put your head on them! After the first sleepless night I took the pillow out of the pillow case and stuffed my hoddie into the case instead! Much better.

We had an overnight stay on July 7th Got to the hotel late that even but they knew we would be arriving late. Greated by friendly staff at the front desk who helped us quite promptly and we got our key. We stayed in the wing with the suites, 3rd flood. Good sized suites and very clean and quiet. A/C was on when we got in there so the room was nice and cool. All amenities where provided as usual. Checkout was quite smooth also the next morning. I would highly suggest using this property when visiting Kamloops BC
