Good value for your money, friendly staff, shuttle to the airport, Moxie's Restaurant on site; central location to the airport and other interesting attractions in Richmond, as well as being only 1/2 an hour to downtown Vancouver in non-rush hour traffic.

You expect airplane noise not ice machine. We stayed on the 4th floor and the ice machine was so noisy you could hear it all night.

I found the hotel lobby to be clean and well lit, the loft room to be clean and with two nice tvs and a comfy sofa and bed, and a nice kitchen. Overall I would stay here again, everything was nice and cool and comfy.

We didn't book a room, just drove in, David at the from desk was very accommodating. Gave us exactly what we asked for and more, no complaints at all. Staff were all friendly, the room was comfortable, and the staff at Moxies was excellent for both meals.

I used to stay at Sandman every so often for arrivals and departures at YVR. (Then I discovered you could rent entire modern apartments by the day in downtown Vancouver or recently the new MC2 at Marine Drive Canada line station for about the same price per night. Alas the AirBnb I planned to booked was already reserved.) Stayed at...
