"Excellent Hotel & location"
Staff are friendly, welcoming & accommodating. We were able to change our room selection at check in easily & quickly. The front desk staff also helped with restaurant suggestions. Room was very nice, clean with a great view of the city. The location is fantastic, right next to the metro which made getting into the city a breeze. Will definately stay […] here again!

"Returning home vication"
Very poor service, the internet kept losing its signal, very bad connection, very poor hot water presure in the sink, always though the bowl was going to block , in general never going back there and it has to be updated in its looks, very disappointed as a Montrealer, the only convince was the subway.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
I read a lot of the comments before I booked this hotel and made an educated decision. The hotel location is great, close to downtown just across the river. However there was no internet connection during the five days we stayed there. We arrived on Dec 24, so we were informed there will be limited room service until the 26th because of Christmas. However […] our room as never cleaned and we requested to change room on the 27th. For the price we paid, I was expecting a better service. Parking was free but breakfast cost $9 per person! I wouldn't stay there again, ever! Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
"Nice hotel, tedious check-in and parking"
This is a nice hotel but checking in takes a long time, there are forms to fill manually and the staff often has problems with the key cards.There are many kludges that are unexpected in this kind of hotel: confusing parking directions, unreliable automated gates, most front doors are locked, need to be buzzed in at night, etc. This hotel does not feel […] high end until you get in a room.

Fantastic location just across from the Metro...especially nice in the winter time. The room was adequate for a short stay. $9 each for a bland continental breakfast was just too much. Bed wasn't too comfy - quite hard. Overall we keep coming back...you just can't beat the location for the $Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Great hotel, great location"
Hotel staff were friendly & helpful. Our room was clean, comfortable & well appointed. The exercise area had a nice variety of equipment. The hotel is located about 50 feet from the metro entrance, it is extremely convenient to travel into and around Montreal.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Very Close to Train Station"
This is a regular 3 star hotel which is conveniently located next to a train station. The room was OK, just regular. The staff was very helpful. Overall, this is a good, descent hotel. I would stay here again if I am just looking for a regular stay. Thanks.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Close to the Metro"
The location is amazing if you want to be near the city but do not like the hassle of the city. We purchased the metro pass for the weekend and it got us there and back with no hassles as the metro is very easy to navigate. The hotel is clean and the parking is free and right outside the door., along with the metro entrance. The beds are a bit hard […] but comfortable and the pool is not a nice as it looks in photos but I would stay there again. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"Clean rooms, good location"
Across the street from the subway to Montreal.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
Really nice place. Professional multi-lingual staff provided friendly service. Clean rooms, comfortable beds. No room service, on- site restaurant was good but unnecessarily pricey. Tim's, McDo, Subway and others accross the street in bus/metro terminal. Spent three nights for a trip to Montreal and would return here again, especially given simplicity […] of metro access and use. On-site parking is free and secure! Great place that met our needs.

"It's right on the Metro"
Let's start with the good points: it's close to the metro, car parking is free. Not so good points: hotel is tired and needs a refresh, rooms feel grubby as does the bathroom.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Business meetings Varennes"
Convinient location to business meeting but would not stay there again.Genuine Expedia guest review
"very central location for everything"
Great place to stay . There was a bit of paint chipping on bathroom ceiling...BUT..the room was very clean. We had a view of the big" O " great with morning coffee... definitely go back.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
The Sandman is super convenient to the subway and the area is fine. Its a clean place to stay...no frills. There are some nice restaurants in the local downtown area you can drive to without going over the bridge into Montreal. The free wi-fi internet is is weak and sporadic and the halls and elevators in the hotel are very hot.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Hotel was really nice!"
Was really impressed with the hotel and the best part was that it is located across the street from a subway station. I didn't have much trouble finding the hotel. The staff was friendly and they all were very fluent in English. It was so quiet I thought I was the only person staying on my floor. They have a restaurant but the menu is limited and a […] little high priced. There are not many other places to eat in the area. There is a McDonalds in the subway station. The price for the hotel stay was fair and I would stay there again and recommend it to others. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
"Clean, comfortable and convenience."
The hotel is nice and clean plus free parking. It has great views of Montreal. Longueuil itself is a nice little town. Check in and out was easy and the clerks were nice and helpful.Genuine Expedia guest review
perfect location for Metro and surrounding attractions!!Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Quiet get-a-way in the off season. Lakeside."
Nice way to relax away from city and noise.Check-in/out was quick and hospitable. Good size rooms. Our bed seemed a bit smaller than queen size.Hilly terrain in residential setting limits walking area and trails. Some canoes and kayaks looked like they'd be fun on the lake in the summer. One hour or so from Montreal.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Great value and convenient"
Staff was friendly and spoke both English and French. Don't go to Montreal and think that the official languages of Canada are English AND French. It is OR French and in Montreal it IS French. That said, I only had a few places where I had communication issues. The hotel is nice. I'd say 3.5 stars, not four. My room was definitely 3 star. Pretty much […] a standard room that you will find at any of the mid level hotels in the USA. Don't expect Egyptian cotton sheets and mints on your pillow. Wi-Fi isn't the best, especially when the hotel is busy but I was able to use my computer for business. McDonald's McCafe has free and strong Wi-Fi for the cost of a cup of coffee. Get a map and don't think your phone GPS will get you around. I bought a 3 day pass for $18 and was able to get to all of the Montreal tourist locations by foot. Not much nearby for food. Inside the Metro station there is McDonalds, Tim Hortons and a small market with fresh food and veggies. I was able to get healthy food there. If you don't mind a 20 minute subway ride this is a great hotel. If you are one of those people that is going to complain about a subway don't bother. The subway is safe, it just looks old and it can be crowded during rush hour. I stay at many hotels all over the world and this is a good one if you just want a place to sleep and regroup after a day of business or tourism. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"Nice Location Next to Metro"
The hotel staff is friendly, but the rooms are clean but worn. Our room had a busted shower rod so the shower curtain drooped. The location is the main draw, park your car and walk across the street to the entrance to the Metro station, then you are a quick 15 or 20 minute trip to Old Montreal, downtown, the Biodome, or Planetarium.Genuine Expedia guest review
"Easy access to Montreal"
The hotel needs some TLC but has an excellent location next to the Metro Station.Genuine Expedia guest review
"good view good room"
good room good view pool was nice staff handled a blackout well. not their fault. close to metro free parking! 5 min to cityGenuine Expedia guest review
"Great spot just outside the city"
The Sandman is located just outside of Montreal, the metro is literally right acrossed the street which makes travel to and from the city very easy. Driving in Montreal is a hassle anyway. The hotel has free parking and allows you to leave your car there the whole day of check out. The cons would be the breakfast price and the internet. The internet […] by far was the worst part about it. The speed was slow and connection dopped in and out. If that isn't a big deal for you then this is a good hotel for a good price.

"Wireless keep dropping off"
Wireless keep dropping off on floor 16 , I have to get my data from cell phone its cost me $ 110 for data download and upload. I can’t hookup Ethernet cable on my tablet.Genuine Expedia guest review
"Fine and convenient"
Loved being so close to the Metro and in and out of downtown easily without a car. Nice views and reasonably comfortable beds. My only complaint was the Internet access, which was barely functioning. They seem to be running too many rooms off of too few routers, or some other issue that means it is slow when it works at all.Genuine Expedia guest review
"Great! Just don't drink the coffee"
Comfortable bed. Really nice staff. Not bad view. Only complaint is the coffee tasted like pool water.Genuine Expedia guest review
Awesome value for this quality of hotel and location!Genuine Hotels.com guest review
The sheets had blood stain on them, they did not change them. The pillows and cases were dirty and also contained blood stain on them.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Great hotel for the money"
Although the hotel is not in dowtown Montreal it is ideal for its close proximity to the metro and its free parking since drinving and finding parking in downtown can prove to be more than a challenge. The staff is friendly the rooms are clean and it is literally across the street from the metro.Genuine Expedia guest review
"Great value but internet very slow"
I picked the hotel because of the location. Even though breakfast is not included, you can walk to metro terminal in 2 mins, and you would find lots of restaurants. parking is free and very easy access to subway system. If was not for the internet, I would gave this hotel a 4 star review. The internet is some stone-age technology, probably slow then […] the 14.4k dial up I had 15 years ago. It gets very slow at night, it was almost impossible to do business in my room. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
The beds are very comfortable. Room is clean. Internet connection is very slow. I would stay @ this hotel again.Genuine Expedia guest review

Close to metro and free parkingGenuine Hotels.com guest review
Great bargain. 50 yards from Metro.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Give this hotel a definite 'meh'"
Surprised at the good reviews of this hotel when we booked it. Not particularly impressed with it. WiFi never worked plus a few other annoying things about this hotel. Is close to the metro (next door). The only thing it really had going for it. I travel to Montreal every few years. I will not repeat here.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Decent place for families"
Rooms were big and the price was right. Downsides: terrible wi-fi, location a bit isolated (I-phone map function couldn't find it), room service a bit irregular (hours weren't clear) and breakfast not included. But great indoor pool popular with kids, convenient to metro, ample parking and courteous staff at the counter. And above all, the price was […] right, particularly compared to hotels across the river. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"Great Spot for Fireworks"
Room was big, comfortable and clean. Bed was pillowtop and nice. Next door to Metro. Grocery store and shopping mall two blocks away. Not in the city, but easy to get to. Only two elevators. It was a great spot for the fireworks competition by different countries. Would stay there again.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
The hotel is near downtown Montreal right next to the subway station, in very good prices. The room is comfortable and clean. The only thing we don't like is the Wifi. It's overloaded by large number of users every night until 1am in the morning.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Review of Hotel"
Had problems with the handicap area, air conditioner, and the bathroom needed to be recleaned when we arrived. I would not stay in this hotel again. The breakfast for 10.00 was NOT worth the price at all. VERY disappointed in our stay.Genuine Expedia guest review
"Nice hotel next to the Montreal Longueuil Metro"
Very nice hotel. Great location. 10 second walk to the Montreal Longueuil Metro. Great parking.Genuine Expedia guest review
"Best for those who plan to visit Montreal by metro"
As a first time visitor to Montreal, driving and parking in the city turned out to be not nearly as awful as I had anticipated, but I am still glad that I chose to park my car at this hotel (for free) and explore the city by metro (9 dollars for a day pass). It takes less than 5 minutes to go from my room to the metro platform. The continental breakfast […] at the hotel is excellent; the staff is friendly and helpful. My only complaint is the limited bandwidth of the Internet connection. Wifi signal is good; there is also a cable connection for those who need it (through a hidden box bolted under the desk). However, after 7 PM, when many guests begin to log in, network connection becomes extremely sluggish; Webex conference call is basically impossible. Those who must stay connected for non trivial reasons may need to prepare a backup plan as a result. Lastly, there are road repair projects in progress (August 2013) that may force those of us who rely on GPS to find our ways to drive in circles and slowly go crazy. Fortunately, this hotel is one of only a handful of tall buildings by the metro station and is clearly visible once you get to the parking area. Just ignore your GPS and aim for the building!

"Nice hotel. Close to the Metro and Highways"
Nice and clean. Free parking for hotel visitors. We are Family of 6 ,got a 2 connecting rooms for $84 each.Good price for a big city. Rooms nice but no small table to eat in the room and no fridge. ice -yes.Genuine Expedia guest review
Need better food selection.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"1/2 the Price- Great Service"
Our stay was very comfortable. The best part is that it is right across the street from the metro station and there is free parking. They even let you park there after you check out (for free). It is 2 stops into downtown and the best deal.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Moderately priced, minutes from downtown."
We drove up from New England to visit Montreal for a couple of days and were looking for a spacious room (family of 3 with an older child), free parking, fitness facilities, proximity to downtown, and reasonable prices... and we found all that at the Sandman! The hotel is located right in front of the Longueuil subway terminal - a 10 minutes train ride […] from the heart of town - and minutes away from some of the other Montreal landmarks.

"Heatwave in Montreal"
This hotel offers outstanding value for the money. It is located 2 subway stops from the main hub to the downtown area in a University section of southeast Montreal. Sadly, there was a heatwave during our stay and the fact that the hotel hallways were not air conditioned was a nuisance. So was the fact that it appears that there is no intention to repair […] the broken ice machine on our floor. One has to expect things like this when working within a budget....

the employees where very nice ant the mtro very convenient I would stay againGenuine Hotels.com guest review
Hotel was a little hard to find if you are not familiar with the area. However, it is located right next to the metro station which allows easy access to all of Montreal. The staff was awesome! They gave a lot of assistance for daily trips and sightseeing advice. Each day we were greeted with "How did it go?" or " How can we help you today?" Finding […] food was a little bit of a challenge. The hotel restaurant was a little limited, but there are plenty of fast food options in the metro station. The room is a little dated, but quite large and comfortable and clean. The free parking was the best perk. The lot was easily accessed from the hotel and no problem finding a spot. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
"Good choice for a Montreal hotel"
The Sandman is across the river from Montreal but the Metro stop is right outside the door which is really convenient. The free parking is a big plus compared to the hotels in town. We had a perfect view of the fireworks exposition without paying to be at La Ronde. Nice room, nice staff, nice hotel. Only complaints would be $9 for a buffet breakfast […] that was pretty basic fare. The pool smelled so strongly of chlorine that I had no desire to go in it. And there's really no place to go to eat within walking distance, except what they have to offer at the Metro station, and driving in that area is a little bit of a pain. Otherwise good price on a nice hotel. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
Plus: Clean, OK size rooms. Minus: Hallways not air conditioned - 90+ degrees. Too few elevators - always make you wait. Charge equal to stay for "incidentals" without permission - (Unacceptable) Internet - so pitifully slow it is not worth even trying to use. Microscopic pool.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
