“Disappointed :(”
Reviewed 13 August 2014

Stayed here for two nights and that was more than enough. The location is excellent which is why we selected it. The train is right there and you can walk to lots of restaurants and boutiques and the downtown area.
Noisy! When the room next to us used the shower it was crazy loud, and we could also here them talking through the walls at 3:00 a.m. Beds are not so comfy.
Sandman is an old building and could use some updating for sure. Love the old wooden doors though.
Wifi is free although they were having some issues when we were there.
An OK stay for a night or two tops.

We booked 3 nights at the Sandman Hotel and it's was during the long weekend in Aug. It's a old hotel and the bathroom are a closet size, The have some elevator issue, so we when up and down and again up and down before the elevator stop at one floor, and sometime the elevator didn't stop flush to the floor, it was down from it, so take care and you will take them. The front desk was polite but not very helpfull. It was our first time in Calgary and the tour guide (from the hotel) was never there and we asked to the reception some information about the hop on and hop off bus and they sent us to the Mac's across the street. The restaurant inside serve normal food.The emplacement is good for the Calgary tower, the zoo and etc. We will try to go somewhere else next time and we hope it will be better!

Room Tip: be carefull in the elevator!

This was the third Sandman hotel we frequented, during a two week stay in Canada. Find it hard to say anything particularly interesting about any of them really. Nice big room, comfortable beds, short walk to down town Calgary. All in all it was as I said pleasant enough. Wifi good, breakfast was nice and all within walking distance to points of interest in Calgary.

This place isn't very clean, its rundown and not in a great part of town. The only positive is the train line (free) is outside the door.
We had pre paid for luggage service provided by our tour company but that was non-existent - no-one came to assist!! The room's AC wouldn't work - stayed at about 80 all night !!
The room was clean but very shabby, scratched furniture, bathroom had holes in wall where I assume a mirror or towel rack had been. Couldn't recommend this place at all

Nice size hotel room. Fantastic location for Downtown restuarants and bars as well as the train system. Which is for free on the central line. Hotel staff were very helpful and knowledgable. Rooms were clean and tidy. Calgery Stampede was a blast and perfect location for accessing the venue

Great Location near the train. Quiet and clean. However the hot bubbles don't work and have not work in a very long time according to the people at the front desk. While we were there they were doing something to their parking garage. So it was inaccessible and we were instructed to park down the block, and we got a ticket for parking there. Sandman Inn is suppose to take care of this. I sure hope they do. When checking out we received no assistance from the front desk to get all our belonging out to the street, even though the one gentle man that was on duty said he would assist. We had to double park and carry our belongings down several stairs to our car. I was not impressed. I travel with

this hotel was very central, the staff were helpfull on the desk and rooms were kept very tidy and clean daily. there is a charge at this hotel for using underground parking of $25.20 per day.we felt safe in the city and found it easy to access shops across road and resteraunts only one block away.we visited the heritage park and it was a fantastic day out and very educational.

Room Tip: if you will be using swimming pool and gym make sure you ask for a room near them as our rooms were...
