Thank you for taking the time to let us know how your stay was. I'm sorry for any confusion regarding the incidental. This was authorized since contactless check-in was opted in. We are in the process of updating our facilities bathrooms this year. We do hope to see your name on our arrivals list after we have completed the remodels of the bathroom. Until then we wish you safe journeys on all your travels.

The Sandman was a last minute hotel booking after showing up to our original hotel and refused to stay there. We were so happy The Sandman had a room available on such short notice. I was thrilled when we showed up to see a fun, clean, safe environment. The pool was great and I loved the Pool House Bar. Most of the staff we interacted with were very friendly.

This is a very nice, clean, well managed budget motel. The onsite managers are very nice, efficient. The lobby is clean and welcoming. It has been recently renovated. The rooms are very clean. The mattress is very comfortable, not cheap and saggy. The sheets are also higher quality. The toilet is a water saver, and also flushes quickly and quietly. I appreciate the owners commitment to green environmental amenities. And the owners also have donation boxes for local charities, including dog fostering.

It was quite nice. The only issue was that an email I sent requesting an extra blanket and 2 thin pillows was not done. And I had a reply email saying that it would be done.
