Sandman Inn & Suites Kamloops
Ranked #34 of 54 Hotels in Kamloops
Reviewed 30 October 2010

Upon arriving at the Sandman Inn, we were a bit taken back by the exterior. However, the staff were friendly and the room was actually ok. It had a fridge, microwave, small bathroom, 1 queen bed, and was clean.
We only stayed one night as a stop off between Calgary and Vancouver.
We ate at Dennys, which is almost in the car park.
There were a lot of teenagers staying there, but we didn't hear much from them.
There were lots of free parking spaces.

The main building is not for anyone with disabilities but they do have a detached building with wheelchair accessible rooms with outside access. Lobby and reception up steps tho.

Rooms are small. Bathroom was ridiculously small but both clean except for a few cobwebs on the ceiling.

No microwave in room but there is a fridge and coffee maker and hair dryer.

Beds were really hard if you like that sort of thing (I don't).

We were in room 132 which is adjoining with next door unfortunately the neighbors had little girls who were up early on our Sunday morning (after a wedding). Needless to say, we were awake early at 6:30. We finally got back to sleep when housekeeping staff (at 8 am) decided they needed to speak to each other from one end of the hallway to the other by yelling. We decided it wasn't worth it and got ready to check out.

The only bright spot was the Dennys on the property. Please check out my review of this. Our 2 mornings here for breakfast was outstanding!!!

I would recommend this hotel only if you plan to be up early unless you stay in the detached building. You might have more success than we did there.

My husband and I have stayed at the Sandman in Kamloops twice this summer. The staff are very kind and helpful. Our room was nice and the location was very convenient. We will definitely be back.

I have stayed in kamloops many times and found this one of the better properties checkin was ok bit of a mix up though however was due to booker, room was decent size bathroom bit small however was very clean.

stayed here on our way from Jasper to Whistler,room was clean & comfortable but bathroom was a bit on the small size also there was no elevator in the block we stayed in. There is a Dennys located in the car park which was great for breakfast & we were given a 10% discount from the hotel which was nice .This hotel is great for an overnight stop-off,on checking out the lady on reception was extremely helpful with directions .

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.

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.
