Easy to get to, great location. Room was way more than needed or expected. Clean and comfortable. All staff encountered were extremely friendly and helpful. GM is amazing. Only improvement i could see is some sort of ventilation in the gym. It was so stuffy i had to stop early. Can't wait to stay again

After a rough day on VIA rail we were driven what seemed to be a long way in this sprawling town to this hotel. The exterior is not inspiring, but not much in this frontier like town is. However, the reception and interior exceeded expectations. The Canadian wry sense of humour was intact and the staff were full of useful information on where to eat and details of morning taxis. WIFI was free but the internet speed was slow. The hallways and room were updated and fresh. Coffee maker and fridge in room. Small pool, but may be useful for tiring out small children. Well equipped fitness room.
Disappointingly lumpy mattresses- the springs seemed to be right under the mattress cover. Denny's is incorporated within the hotel and I had to pass on breakfast- there was nothing on the menu I could risk- must be getting fussy. However, we had an amazing meal at Moxy's Grill 2 doors down the previous night. A wonderful spicy chicken soup, great steak and ribs and a mini dessert.
Overall- not a bad stay for one night - more than that and the mattresses would put me off.

Have stayed at this hotel many times over the years. In a kitchen suite which is nice, but no strainer and dirty dishes not a good way to start out a stay. The tv upgrade was nice, as a lot of Sandmans don't have flat screens. Lack of outlets is a challenge, especially when most people travel with many electronics nowadays; perhaps multi plug adaptors in outlets would help. The internet speed is better than in the past, however, when you know everyone in the hotel will be using it from 7-10 pm nightly, perhaps more routers would help ? I know some hotels have them in every hallway. Now to the beds: Brutal. Backache every night. Perhaps instead of upgrading the bedspreads, money would have been better spent on a slab of memory foam. I could feel the springs. I think most travellers would feel bed and ample hot water are very important in a hotel stay. One last note: Check in experience not great. A friend was at the desk awaiting service ( dressed in extreme casual ) and was ignored; we weren't served until my friend in business attire showed up a few minutes later; not cool.

The room we stayed in was pretty cramped but were happy with the weekend special we got. The decor was nice but a bit cold feeling, not very 'homey'. Wish there was a continental breakfast, instead you have the option to eat at the attached Denny's which is mediocre at best not to mention very greasy. Overall our experience was 'okay'. Probably would not stay again if not for the weekend special.

I've stayed here 3 times over the last year. If you have a choice definately book a suite in the tower. Those rooms are great compared with the 'normal' rooms which are dark and small.
That being said, the 'normal' room I was in had a great comfortable queen bed; the fridge leaked (had to empty the freezer drip tray a few times) but seemed to cool everything down; just a microwave; shower tap has a mind of its own; bathroom is ok; carpets dark and old; cooling / heating system takes a little getting used to; TV is large but cable picture quality sucks; internet connection is good.
All in all, average (get a suite).

Room Tip: Choose the suite side if you can, the experience is worth the extra cost

I would recommend a room in the "tower", nicely renovated, and comfortable. Spacious, good wifi, Dennys available 24/7, and even had a balcony! Couldnt believe i was able to find a very nice smoking room with an updated kitchen (and everything in it that was needed) Will be back for more!

Visited Price George on work and stayed at the Sandman. Room wasn't large but very clean, nice TV, bed was SUPER comfy, good wireless Internet, great climate control in the room, only thing I missed was a fridge, given the price of the room.
I was on the 2nd floor and it looks like it was recently renovated.
Front desk staff were very friendly and helpful.
Denny's is attached to the hotel, open 24 hrs, good food and good friendly service.
I'd stay here again for sure on work, but if I were visiting on my own time and dime, I don't think the quality quite matches the price.
