Nice clean hotel conveniently located near the airport. Clean rooms reasonably
priced. Free shuttle to the airport, free parking if you need it. No breakfast included,
but there is a Tim Horton's across the street. We got a shuttle to the cruise port from
here and it cost around $14 each. We did eat a snack Moxie's, and the food was
very good, but it is noisy in there. We were surprised we did not hear any noise from
airplanes while in our room.

We stayed for a night in the Sandman before traveling on to Hope the following day. The hotel is easy to find from the airport, has free parking and upon check in the staff were friendly and efficient. Our room was clean and spacious with a small kitchenette, had a decent bathroom and was quiet considering proximity to airport and main roads.

We took the bed and breakfast option, and after last years stay at the Sandman signature we didn't expect much, however Moxies Grill was great for both dinner and breakfast, with friendly staff, good food and a not overly expensive menu. If you are looking for a stop off before traveling on, then this hotel is a good option!

Stayed in a loft suite with family. The room was very small. If you were to pull out the hid-a-bed it would touch the opposite wall making it impossible for others to get to the bathroom. When I did pull open the bed, it was covered in chips and nuts! Disgusting! I did not sleep on it, just threw the blanket on the couch itself.
The coffee pot did not work properly. When I told a housekeeping staff, she just looked at me.
The restaurant attached was excellent though.

An unexpected layover in Vancouver was quite pleasant. Room was small, but clean and bed was comfy. Fluffy towels and a robe were a nice touch. No noise to contend with. Enjoyed a nice dinner at Moxie's, little pricy, but delicious. Would stay again for airport access.

This room was gross. We had spent the night, and I thought I would give it a decent review based on the "you get what you pay for rule". But in the morning I went to have a shower, turned around to see a huge wad of HAIR stuck to the wall at eye height. Throughly disgusted that they must not have cleaned the shower, I went to grab the door handle out of the bathroom to realize it was sticky and covered in something (I don't want to know).

Will never stay here again. Not worth the parking. BLEH.

If your flying out and need a good long term park and fly rate this is good value, they also allow you more then 2 weeks. The rooms are clean and having Moxie's attached to the hotel is a bonus. Staff have always been friendly and helpful.

Room Tip: If your 55 plus and belong to the Sandman club they will upgrade you for free
