“great for a stop off”
Reviewed 29 September 2009

stayed here on our journey from whistler to the rockies in order to break up the journey and for that is was good enough. We had one of the suites in the building across the carpark from reception. Room was good size with 2 beds, though they were doubles on the small side. Had a kitchen with fridge, cooker etc. It is easy to find as located on main street into kamloops and only a couple fo blocks from Victoria Street where there was a small selection of restaurants.

Reviewed 17 August 2009

Stayed at the Sandman in Kamloops on Aug 15 & 16th, 2009. There are 2 buildings. We stayed in the main building where check-in is. The 'suites' are across the back alley from the main building - about 40 yards. The place is a tired ( parking lot, outside of hotel, reception, hallways etc ). But, the rooms are acceptable for $120 including taxes in the summer. They are older but have 'newer' bedding & furniture. The TV has about 50 channels which was nice. Slept with the window open and all was fine - even on a Saturday night. Denny's is also right in the parking lot which is convenient. Parking can be tight if you are driving a truck. The hotel is downtown & you can walk to the hockey rink, city park etc. 7-11 & Starbucks are each 1 block away. So, it is not new by any means, it does need updating but the rooms are clean & will do for a day or 2.

The Sandmann Inn Kamloops is a no frills hotel. We checked in and the manager on site had a queen sized bed for $89.00 (about $101.00 after taxes)

The Room; quite small with a very high queen sized bed, desk and chair, small TV, phone, and two small chairs. The bathroom was kind of odd as the door was a few inches from hitting the toilet. Mirror and sink was outside of bathroom. The TV however was at the same height as the top of the bed so watching TV was rough. Fridge and a coffee maker with teas and coffee, one free bottle of water, soaps, and toiletries.

Pros; Away from highway, air conditioning, free and illuminated parking, Denny's just a walk away, fridge, very quiet

Cons; no elevator, small room, TV hard to look at while in bed, ice and pop machines in scary lower floor, bathroom door gets in the way when using toilet

We stayed in this hotel while traveling from victoria to jasper.it was a one night stop on our honeymoon. arrived in sweltering july heat after driving four hundred miles. we were checked in when we were told that there was no lift and we were on first floor. we had alot of luggage as we were on three week holiday from ireland.they offered to put us in basement level. not sure how i was going to get luggage back up stairs in morning. carried 4 cases up to room myself as there was no help on offer. room had inadequate air conditioning and we asked for a fan that only worked for half an hour at time and then cut out for two.
ask for someone to look at AC, they did but said that that was just how it was.kamloops itself seemed to close up quite early, we were there mid week and last orders in restaurants were 9.00pm.needless to say we hit the road early next morning and did not avail of the Denny's room service.in all basic, clean but noisy and warm, would look for somewhere else next time if only as there seemed to be plenty of options.

Well we showed up and immediatley noticed the small size of the room. We had informed the front desk before our arrival that we had an infant with us and would be needing a travel cot for our baby to sleep in. Well we got one of the smallest rooms on the floor (as shown on the fire excape page) and with the cot set up, we had hardly any room to walk in. There were raisins on the floor in case we were hungry (but we weren't), a spider on the wall, mildew in the bathtub, a noisy ice machine in the hall that kept waking us up, a bathroom light that would only turn on if you held the switch half way, and a bathroom door that didn't close all the way. If you wanted to sit on the toilet and then close the bathroom door or be standing in front of the toilet and close the bathroom door, you couldn't. The only way to close the bathroom door was to step in the bathtub. That's how small it was. The front staff were very kind however and it was nice to have the Denny's in the same parking lot. I would suggest staying at one of the hotels that are on the south side of the highway where as this one is closer to downtown. Those hotels seemed a bit nicer (my parents stayed in one and we were jealous).

Our room was in the new phase. Our bed was comfortable. The staff is outstanding. I enjoyed very much talking with the manager the morning of our departure. She made our stay here the "icing on the cake"! I would stay here again knowing my family is well accommodated and welcomed!

Reviewed 18 July 2006

Our family of 4 adults was travelling from Vancouver Island to Jasper in a hire car and needed somewhere to break the journey for one night and chose Kamloops. We picked the Sandman Inn through Expedia.

The Sandman Inn is easy to find and parking is on a forecourt outside reception. Space is fairly limited but we always found space.

The reception staff gave a poor initial impression; my wife commented that neither of the reception staff we met understood what customer care meant. We had to stand waiting for ages one time while the woman was on a long phone call.

The rooms were basic but OK. Our rooms were in a separate building over the way from reception in what looks like an apartment block, with external and internal access to the rooms. The rooms were hot (temperature outside was 32 degrees) but cooled down once the noisy window-mounted air conditioners were turned on. The rooms had reasonable facilities - the usual big TV, big comfy beds and a kitchenette area with fridge. For some reason only one of our rooms had a microwave and the cutlery/crockery in each room was limited and inconsistent; for example one room had a can opener but the other did not. No restaurant at the Inn; a diner adjoins the car park but we ate elsewhere.

OK if passing through but if doing the trip again would be tempted to look at some of the other travel inns nearby to see if value and customer service any better.
