While we were in Red Deer for the bull sale a few weeks ago we decided to stay in town rather then going back and forth from the farm.
I had never stayed in the Red Deer Sandman, but it had always looked like a nice hotel from the outside. I am a big Moxie's fan, and that is connected right to the hotel so the amenities were great.
I was actually pretty disappointed with the hotel. The lobby is all newer and renovated, but the rooms themselves leave a lot to be desired. They were small and very out dated. Everything from the green carpets to the bedding seemed to have not been replaced for years.
I didn't find the beds that comfortable either. The bathrooms were alright. Clean and a hot shower. Nothing fancy, but after the bedroom portion I can't say I was expecting much.
