“Clean, Fun, and affordable!”
Reviewed 11 August 2014

I found this hotel to be clean, fun, and affordable. The AC works great! The waterslide in the pool was a ton of fun for my son and myself! The only negative was breakfast. There was not really any kid friendly food and there was no where to sit when we got there so we ended up paying for breakfast somewhere else.

Room Tip: There is no elevator so first floor is more convenient.

Thank you for taking your time to review our property.

I am glad that your family enjoyed the clean affordable accommodation.

Great to hear the excitement that your family had with the waterslide and pool. I have say it is great to see families come back over the years and seeing the kids grow.

I do apologize that you had no place to sit during breakfast. It does get busy in our breakfast room. We do offer a selection of breakfast items to accommodate all ages.

We at the Maverick look forward to seeing your family in the near future.

A very clean property with cityside rooms possessing excellent views north over Kamloops and the Thompson Rivers. Positive customer service with one strong proviso: property charges adult prices $10 extra per night for kids over 6, considered adults, wow. Not expected via booking from web, so caveat emptor, a $100 per night can rise to $120 easily. If we had known, might have made another lodging choice as there are lots in the area. Communication challenge between online sites and the hotel I suppose; that the manager would not budge on this issue, results in only an average rating overall. Unusual too: renting VHS tapes for use in room, unique in this day and age.

Room Tip: Ask for a room with a view and ask if all extras are included. Charges extra for additional coffee p...

Thank you for reviewing the Maverick Motor Inn on your recent stay.

I am glad that you found our property very clean and that your family enjoyed the clean view room.

The front desk was delighted to hear that the service they provided was positive.

Yes, we do charge for additional people when guests in-correctly book their room(s).
with a 3rd party booking agent. You originally booked a room for 2 adults at a discounted rate for 3 nights.

When you arrived you had 2 adults and 2 kids over the age of 12. Therefore, as stated in the 3rd party contract additional people over the age of 6 years is $10 per person. When booking online it is always best to read the "fine print" for each hotel you book to avoid discrepancies.

I hope you had a safe return back home.

We stayed here for one night on our way between Whistler and Jasper. This is the prefect stop for this. The hotel is beside the main road which means you don't water any time if you have a long drive the next day.

We had a room with an elevated view of a kamloops. The room was clean and well furnished with high quality bed linen. We had a good nights sleep. TV, fridge and microwave were all available. The wi fi was fast and reliable. We were not aware of any road noise.

The hotel is within walking distance of a shopping centre, a tourist information centre and a very good Chinese restaurant called Beijing. We had a meal in Beijing and it was one of the best we ever had.

The front desk staff are friendly and efficient.

The breakfast was adequate but minimal with not much choice. Plastic cutlery, cereal, fruit, tea or coffee.

We stayed here also on our way back from Jasper and Canmore five days later. Our first visit was late July the second in early August.

Thank you for taking the time to post your review.

The Team at the front desk says, "Thank you for the compliment on our services."

I do agree that our location is great for our guests. Easy access off the highway makes the road trip stress free. Having the main shopping mall, restaurants and other big box retail stores close by keeps guests like yourself appreciative of our Hotel.

I am glad you enjoyed your room and the in room amenities with the spectacular city view of Kamloops.

Clean and spacious rooms, comfortable and conveniently located close to the highway. Indoor swimming pool good for kids. Basic breakfast (not cooked) is also available. Very helpful and friendly staff. A good place for a short break.

Room Tip: Ask for a room not facing the highway

I am pleased you find our location convenient, and found your room clean, spacious and comfortable. The pool is a great place for the kids to burn off some energy after a long car ride.

My team was flattered that you acknowledged their efforts and we are all glad that you were pleasantly surprised with our property.

I look forward to welcoming you back when you next travel through Kamloops.

We just stopped here on our way up to jasper and banff national park. We didn't really liked the big deposit for the room that we didn't get back for 7 Days. You can really here the highway if you have room at that side. It is not Close to the city so you have to take a drive for 5 minutes. The breakfast is just like any other motel. Nothing special.
The motel is Clean and nice and beds are comfy. The staff is also very nice.

Thank you for taking the time to review our hotel.

I am glad that you found your room clean, your beds comfortable and my team friendly.

The noise level from the highway is always subject to your personal sensitivity. In the future, please remember to ask for a quieter room on the north side of our hotel when you reserve and we will be happy to accommodate your request as long as we have the availability.

Regarding the deposit: If someone pays by cash or debit we do require a $200.00 deposit in addition to the room rate but you would have gotten that back upon check out after a quick room check. Please check with your credit card company to find out how long they hold a pre-authorization.

Thank you again for your review.

Safe travels

As the drive from Calgary to Vancouver is very long I wanted a stop over. Kamloops was about the right distance so it made it the perfect place.
The Maverick offered a good clean basic friendly hotel with a water slide for the kids to play after being stuck in the car for a long day.
The adults also could relax in the jacuzzi.
And for the people who are nostalgic the hotel offers old VCR movies.
Nice stay and very friendly staff.
However the breakfast is at best very limited. Just go for the coffee.

Our visit this time was the second time we stayed here and again we were very happy with the excellent friendly service accommodation reasonable rates. My wife has mobility problems and we were very happy that this was taken into consideration and the room was spacious, close to the entrance and on ground floor. Parking is no problem and the continental breakfast was good.
