Although the entire hotel seems to be under extensive renovation, the rooms have been completed and are nicely appointed. From floor to ceiling, the rooms have been totally redone and are fresh and nicely laid out with new furniture selections. The pool area was closed for renovation as was the regular office and breakfast area, but work is continuing on...

The Sandman is currently going over a major construction project, so there is not even a working lobby. The pool is closed. Our room was NOT as pictured at all. We had requested two Queen beds, we got one. The worst part was there was NO carpet, just a creepy throw rug that stuck out from under the bed. And...

Great shower, great mattress, great price. Solid. We had a great night of rest. I love that they use Malin and goetz in dispensers instead of individual travel size. Great idea Samdman! Pick a second floor room, here was foot traffic overhead.

The Sandman Santa Rosa is ideally located just off 101, which makes navigating around in that area very easy. The room we had was a king bedroom on the upper level. The room recently had been renovated and is decorated in a nice modernist retro style (think IKEA meets the Jetsons) and was absolutely clean and flawless. In the bathroom...

The hotel is being transformed and it looks great! The service is excellent! The guest rooms are finished and quite comfortable. Charlie checked us in with a smile and provided tooth brushes and toothpaste upon request, thank you! The new room decor features a very comfortable bed and a boutique hotel look. An unexpected, and sophisticated suprise for Santa Rosa....

I recently visited the Sandman where I normally have stayed for past 10 years, however, they have new ownership and the place has changed. They now have patio furniture in the rooms and the front desk staff are not very professional.

It was rated a four star Hotel with beautiful pictures. We walked into a tiny lobby with a folding table at check in. We immediately asked to see a room. We asked why it was not as advertised and they said " Coming Soon" we immediately cancelled our reservation and went to a better Hotel. Sandman is in a bad...

Though the hotel is under a renovation, and was not mentioned in any of the site(s), we were surprised to find our room recently updated with new carpet, furnishings, etc. the registration is temporarily set up in the breakfast room but they were friendly and efficient. Breakfast was just ok nothing special, cereal, waffles, toast, bagels, pastries and the like....

We stayed at The Sandman while visiting colleges in the area and were pleasantly surprised at how cute and darling this hotel was. Currently under construction, but very lovely. Breakfast was an extended continental simple delight. Enjoyed everything. Thank you.

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
The Sandman is a mythical creature who brings good dreams by sprinkling magical sand on the weary eyes of those sleeping. In the city of Santa Rosa, the Sandman is a new incarnation of a roadside inn that brings a warm and offbeat experience to weary travelers. Situated at the northernmost edge (nearly within shouting distance of Sonoma's wineries) the Sandman's muted colors, warm woods, and relaxed design will welcome you in. Sink into the casual comfort of the lobby, lounge by the pool, or enjoy a local brew at Sandman's new poolside bar. ... more   less
