Sandman Hotel Victoria

Stayed here our two nights in Victoria. Easy to get to. Good value for the price. Ample parking. Pub on site. Laundry on site. Large clean room. 5 minutes from downtown. What you expect from a chain…

Pros:
– extremely well priced
– fantastic sandman service
– the usual fantastic shark below below
– functional gym in the basement to get the sweat going
– super comfy bed
– fully stocked vending machines on every level
– coin washers and dryers in the basement

Cons:
– no bar fridge or microwaves in the queen rooms

Nice central location with a restaurant/pub on site. The shark club was good pub type food. The inly thing I think is a little crazy I’d the hotel fitness center isn’t open until 8am. I’ve never stayed in a hotel that doesn’t have 24 hour or at least 5-6am gym times. I was here on business and 8am is not a good time to start a daily workout for working folks!!

I thought it was a lot closer to downtown core…..walking distance would be more than 40 mins for me…..I had a car anyways…and I guess its good when its on the weekend in October…Parking is free in some places…..the room was with a big bath tub (Jacuzzi) I did not find it at all that great…..the whole place needs up keep…
total reno’s….order breakfast the next morning….plastic cutlery no cart no carafe for coffee…I guess the food comes from Shark’s rest. downstairs….NO table in the room….apparently the guy told me on the phone before going to Victoria that the room was I believe $300. plus…I had for over $175.
hard to eat when you don’t have a small table with two chairs ,,,,, just microwave and sm. fridge….
the whole place needs reno…….service not great ….the older housekeeping man is nice…..tv is not great…..needs new ones….better and the tv holder does not come out and turn……

We hosted a meeting at the Sandman Hotel in Victoria and were very impressed with the staff and their ability to accommodate us and last minute changes.

The facility had wifi available, the projector and screen were ready and waiting for us, water service was well situated and the layout was done to our specifications.

The staff were great!! The room was fairly clean. The bathtub didn’t drain while you showered. The bath towels are super tiny and we are not that tall. This hotel is in a location where you really shouldn’t go out for a walk. We drove one block to get snacks and realized that was not a smart decision. The neighborhood was a bit sketchy. But like I said the staff are awesome.

To be honest my boyfriend booked this hotel so I hadn’t done research on it however I felt it was further from down town then we would have liked. We did walk down to the water and parliament buildings but It was about a 40 mins walk. The staff warned us about leaving anything in our cars as it wasn’t the best neighbourhood and theft has happened. The room was clean and much larger than we needed (we had a full sitting area and tiny kitchen) however it definitely felt like an older more dated hotel – even felt a bit like a motel. Overall I felt like we overpaid however it did get the job done.

Used a gift certificate for this hotel…staff very pleasant and efficient. Room overlooked main street, We were on the fourth floor…traffic noise minimal ,,,,we used the pool which was clean, hot tub was also very clean..note local calls are extra

Stay here one night back in July and liked it. Pretty basic but the room was nice and Wi-Fi was good and staff friendly. The restaurant connected isn’t so great but that’s another review. Good hotel in decent location. Easy to get around.

We have stayed at the Sandman in Vancouver several times, expected a very nice place in Victoria and were not disappointed. Excellent location on the edge of downtown and easy access to points north (as it is on Douglas St./Highway 1). The rooms are a little smallish, but all is well appointed, beds extremely comfortable, staff very accommodating. We had a small suite with a friend. The layout of the room afforded privacy for her. The staff was extremely efficient in modifying our reservation to accommodate our friend and for only $20 more.

The room was clean but not modern. The Shark’s Club restaurant isn’t open to kids. That was a really problem with our family and we just wanted to grab a quick dinner when we arrived without having to drive. The pool was clean too.

Executive suite was spartan but ok. We found someones lost pills on the floor beside the bed…front desk guy must have been a doctor because he thought the several different pills were just vitamins. U/G parking is excellent. Building is safe/secure…swipe cards needed in many areas. Restaurant is not the best…”Shark Club” seems to be a sports bar rather than family oriented…but many eateries within walking distance.

I stayed at this hotel for 4 nights while on business in Victoria. When I presented myself at the front desk, I was met by 2 very pleasant and efficient front desk staff members who made the check in process very easy. The bed wasn’t very comfortable, although the shower was the best that I have ever had. Parking is free with lots of parking spots available. Exercise room is very small and hot with no ventilation. There’s a restaurant in the hotel and there is also a Denny’s and Ricky’s restaurant within a 5 minute walk towards the Mayfair Mall. Check out was very easy. The cost for this hotel was slightly on the high side. Overall a pretty decent hotel.

Although this hotel was just an overnight stopover for us it was ideal for what we needed. Easy to find right on main freeway into downtown area. Front desk was so polite and helpful on our arrival. Room was very clean and tidy. No complaints whatsoever just compliments. Would definitely book again. Thank you for looking after us.

Excellent services. The sales manager Amy was super helpful. Excellent customer services from front desk to housekeeping. Rooms were clean. Super convenience with full kitchen for group booking. Nice size pool, clean and the kids had a great time. Thank you Sandman!!!

Descent hotel, kinda out of the central downtown but walking distance. Our room was really small. Underground parking was mostly reserved for that day and we did not know that it could be reserved. Overall is just ok.

Stayed for 2 nights with the misses over the family day weekend. We arrived a little early and were quickly given a top floor room. On the top floor, we got a very quiet sleep each night. The room itself was a tad small, but we’re only really using it to sleep, so the size wasn’t of importance. Room was clean and comfortable. The hotel is a little “out of town”, but we’d done our research, so that wasn’t a surprise. Since we’re pretty active, we took advantage of the free parking and walked to and from the inner harbour area. It’s about a 20 minute walk at our pace. We used the pool once during our stay, it was free of other humans and clean. The property is a bit dated as many other reviews mention, but it’s certainly functional enough, and is well matched to their pricing compared to other hotels in the area. We’d stay here again.
