Not somewhere you would bring your family, but somewhere you rest for a night. Yes it isn't the cleanest, but it's the cheapest in Kamloops by far what do you expect? We stayed in Coast more recently and payed 6 times the amount we payed here! You're not paying the resort price, you can't expect resort quality. This is not...

We were stunned to be paying over $200 a night for the Best Western on the freeway in Abbotsford so were trying to economize a bit in Kamloops. The Columbia Inn is indeed basic, but it did have a pool which other people with kids were enjoying. The room had a but of a funky smell (as did our Best...

Excellent time here. Was a bit scared the first night because of the other reviews but by day 2 it felt like a home away from home. You get what you pay for. I may invest a bit next-time. For my budget, this was perfect. The pool was amazing. Thank you to the staff for the endless supply of pool...

I got their last room apparently.... big mistake to take it. $100 a night and it was worse than a hostel. Extremely old and smelly. Walls had stains everywhere and carpets were completely stained. The air conditioning didnt work and it was just yucky!!! Pay the extra money and stay somewhere else. STAY AWAY!

Room itself was acceptable for the lower price point, and it's not far off the main highway. Only issues were the room items - Fridge was boxed in a frame with no extra space so it wasn't working very well, and the room coffee maker was a plastic cup and some instant coffee. AC worked well enough. Staff were super...

After paying up front for 2 nights, we were shown in to a dark, very smelly room. The pool outside looked good so we were disappointed. The carpet and sheets were stained, there was no coffee maker ( no coffee, creamer etc). There was very little silverware, 1 cup, 1 glass,no dishes, and the basin and sink did not drain...

I don't mind staying at older hotels/motels...in fact, some real jems can be found by being willing to bypass the shiny, new places...but this isn't one of them. I can sleep comfortably almost anywhere but if I pay for it, I expect it to be clean...this place wasn't. There were stains on the ceiling and carpet, the carpet itself was...
