The hotel seems to be doing up grades. It is clean and the room was big. The lobby is is good condition. You could hear noise from the adjacent rooms but not too bad. It's right across the street from Boston Pizza so it's handy for dinner.

While a long way away from the downtown area, there is still certainly enough facilities nearby to make this hotel seem not to be out of the way. The staff was excellent and the room was more than just comfortable. Flat screen tv, microwave, iron/board, hairdryer, and mini-fridge. Excellent washroom. Fitness centre, pool, hot-tub, meeting rooms. No restaurant but they...

This is our third year staying with this hotel. The staff was very helpful this year dealing with a duplicate reservation that was made by priceline.com. They also have upgraded the TV's and put new carpet in all the hallways. It looks great. The beds are perfect for our needs and the pool and hot tub was great like always....

We were just at the hotel on the weekend and my two year old was sleeping and I turned on the light to check on her and there was a live bed bug crawling two inches from her. I ended up killing it and called the front desk right away. They did put us in another room but did clean...

Thank you for advising us of the potential of having a bedbug in your room and allowing us to take care of you. As it turned out as you know what you found in your room was not a bedbug it was what Orkin called a swallow bug. As I explained no matter what if we even suspect that there...

We block booked rooms for a hockey tournament recently. We told by the tournament that the room rate is $89/nght. when we got there we were told it is now $124/nght.

Thank you for your review and I am sorry that when I spoke with you my explanation was not sufficient. When Sandy blocked off rooms for your hockey team on Oct 14th she was aware that we no longer had any standard rooms left available at the hockey tournament rate due to a couple of reasons, 1. the hockey tournament...

First things first, the staff here really do a good job. That said, having stayed here many times over the years for work, I don't think that Sandman corporate wants to spend ANYTHING on this hotel. There used to be a restaurant there - not any more. The rooms are dated, you're extremely lucky if you get a fridge and...

Thank you for your review we do appreciate your comments. Yes it is unfortunate that we no longer have a restaurant within the hotel although we do have a deluxe continental breakfast for a small fee if people do want to partake, there are many restaurants within a very short walking distance available for lunch and dinner.

We stayed here for a hockey tournament recently and my 10 year old son was bitten terribly by bed bugs. He ended up with over 30 bed bug bites. The room wasn't very clean. It was also really noisy.

Had a great stay at the Sandman in Castlegar this last weekend. We were given a pool side room which was fantastic. Our patio door opened right onto the indoor pool and courtyard. My kids loved that. We did not eat at the breakfast, but they do charge $5 per person. The room was clean but a little small. You...
