2.0 out of 5.0

Recent guest reviews

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

We stayed here last night,it was the worst decision to stay at this place.We came here after a long drive from vancouver and there airconditioner was not working at all.We spent all night in 25 degrees,also there wifi was not working.This place is not worth at all for the price they charged.

It was an overnight stay between Vancouver and Jasper. I was unhappy to find that the hotel was offering cheaper rates to people calling as I checked in than I was paying on my reservation. "Nothing I can do", said the guy at the desk. Rooms were OK. Parking was OK. Denny's acriss the patking lot was OK for breakfast.

We stayed here for one night on route from Jasper to Vancouver. Alas we initially went to the Sandman Signature Hotel so that may have affected our rating. This hotel is adequate, room is ok but it's all a bit old, tired and underwhelming. They don't offer food but a branch of Denny's is next door open 24/7.

Stayed here on the way back to Edmonton from the island. The suite was nothing special. It was clean and the bed was comfy. I guess that's all a person needs. There's a Denny's on site but we opted to stop later.

Love the suite. Well equipped neat and clean. Excellent price. Denny's on site that overs good food at good price. The young man at reception was not the most helpful that I have met but the rest more than made up for him

We arrived here mid afternoon for 3 nights and had to contend with a hotel with no elevator. Steep steps to lobby, then we had to carry our luggage up to the 3rd floor! Definitely not suitable for guests with mobility problems! Rooms were simple and clean.
