Sandman
Ranked #7 of 24 Hotels in Santa Rosa
Reviewed 9 May 2014

We stayed at the Sandman Inn in mid-March 2014 and the facility itself was adequate, a little carpetfreshy, but fine otherwise. Our complaint is with the lost and found. We attended a funeral in Santa Rosa and then we were away from home until the first week in April. At that time I called the Sandman to ask them to check their Lost and Found for a dress coat, and three pair of slacks. Price value of over $200. They said since it was a new month they would not have our clothing as they throw everything away from the lost and found at the first of the month. I can understand if they toss a sock, a t-shirt, etc. but to not call us for these valuable clothing items is beyond belief. We are so careful about not leaving things behind, usually check the bathroom door, etc., but this is the only place they could have been left. Their policy to not call for items like this amazes us. We would not stay here again.

I chose the Sandman Motel based on the many positive reviews. My experience was very positive also. Clean, secure, good condition, convenient location and a good value. I would definitely stay here again.

This is an older Motel but the room I had had been updated recently new furniture and bedding, large flat screen TV. It came with a small frig.& microwave oven, hair dryer, iron & board. the towels were of a good quality as were the toiletries. Toilet & shower & tub were in one room and sink was out side next to the room closet and had a granite counter top great looking fixtures The shower had a great shower head and plenty of hot water along with great water pressure. The pool is quite large along with hot tub the area is well kept. A continental breakfast is served in the pool house with seating in the pool house and around the pool deck. There was the usual cereals waffles and fruit, and pastries and hard boiled eggs. the attendant was on top of keeping it stocked and clean. Easy check in & out. Would I stay here again you bet the price you pay is hard to beat for what I got and it was really clean

We stayed at the Sandman every year for a biking event which happened this past weekend and I'm continually impressed by the cleanliness of the rooms, towels, linen; their free Wifi which works well; the upgraded flat screen TVs; and the continental breakfast that is included with the stay. For those with families, the rooms have a microwave and a refrigerator as well.
I have recently stayed at other name brand suites and hotels and find Sandman better than those name brand suites, especially with the added benefit of a jacuzzi which I really enjoyed after a long bike ride. We would definitely stay again for our next event up in Santa Rosa.

We enjoyed our stay in Santa Rosa at the Sandman Motel. It was easy on and off the freeway, had an awesome breakfast and room was large with a very comfortable bed. I would recommend this place simply for the bed! It felt like our bed at home! We loved it. Breakfast consisted of boiled eggs, which I love, make your own waffles, selection of different breads for toast, cereals including oatmeal, and juices, coffee and other goodies. It was a very quiet place and personnel were very nice. We had a handicap room and I was surprised to see a bathtub. It was a little difficult to enter the bathtub but had several handicap bars to hold and a seat to sit on which was very convenient. Many personal toiletries were available which was nice. In room coffee was great. Except for the bathtub, I would have to say it was one of the nicest 3 star places we have stayed in. Having a Carrows right next door was very convenient, also. Clean rooms.

Very clean, nice toiletries, good coffee maker, sizeable fridge with a microwave, big screen HD TVs with HBO and fast free WiFi. A small, friendly breakfast offers make-your-own waffles and a selection of breads and sweets. Also pleased with the comfy bed, quiet room and efficient air conditioning. The generous sized pool and jacuzzi help add a bit of fun to the place too. Great base for upper wine country!!

We were invited to attend a wedding in Calistoga, CA . We decided to stay in Santa Rosa since Calistoga was a bit more than we could afford. Much to our surprise, we happened upon the Sandman Motel. After reading some reviews, we booked 2 rooms for a 3 night stay. The are amazing when booking online at their site. The rooms were huge! Very clean, plenty of towels and free internet. The hotel was very quiet, and within walking distance to many restaurants and shopping. The free breakfast had many offerings and was well supplied. Nice grounds, large pool. The staff went overboard to make sure our group had rooms right next to each other, even checking in several hours apart. The drive to Calistoga only took about 20 minutes. I would definitely stay here again!!

Room Tip: These are open corridor rooms. Our rooms were towards the back and VERY quiet and close to the brea...
