“Great room, old bathroom”
Reviewed 6 August 2006

The hotel had been upgraded in the last couple of years and it shows. The lobby is beautiful and the rooms are very nice. The only thing they didn't update were the bathrooms (you'll see the pic). We checked in quite early and were very accommodating. The room we had booked was non-smoking but when we walked in it smelled strongly of smoke. Upon speaking with reception they upgraded us to a room poolside with sliding doors to access the indoor pool and that made up for it all.

You could get a bridge at reception and hook your computer up for internet. The hotel was quiet, there's a Denny's attached.

The place was great, lovely room, great service, would stay there again without hesitation.

I have stayed at a number of Sandman Inns in interior British Columbia for business travel and the one at Penticton is by far the best. The staff are very friendly and helpful. For a budget traveller like me this is an ideal stop. The rooms are clean and the ones that are renovated are done very nicely.

Please avoid it. Renovations were on going, the hotel is sad (at least), clean so so. The best surprise is Denny's beside it! Maybe Penticton has 5000 days per year of sun, however when it rains they lost their mind! When we left the hotel in the morning, it was raining (a very strong rain) and the hotel exits were "blocked" by buses (they tried to stay closer to the hotel to avoid rain) and, to put our baggage in the car, we took a lot of water! Thanks! Hotel staff disappeared! Next time I'll avoid Pencticton and for sure this hotel.

My boyfriend and I stayed at the Penticton Sandman over the May long weekend (one night). We chose it because it was the most reasonable price and included free breakfast and the hotel has a pool.

The hotel is in the midst of major renovations, which are needed and will make the place much better, but it made for a disappointing stay. I totally understand that reno's are necessary, but other little things made our stay kind of so-so. There were stains on the lounge chair in our room which was gross. There was duct tape bordering our carpet below the door, which might be because the hallway carpet is new and being protected?

Lots of families/kids/groups travelling to this hotel so it can be noisy and busy - not what we were looking for but understandable on a long weekend holiday. We were facing a trailer park and parking lot so it got noisy at 4am when young people were coming home from partying.

The free breakfast is at the Denny's attached to the hotel. Overall, we will not stay there again - better to spend a bit more and get a view of the lake, and a more cozy place in Penticton. Hopefully the renovations will improve the Sandman a lot.
