Hello fellow travelers,
So I find myself in Kamloops on a business contract. The company paid for this motel as part of the agreement.
This is a run of the mill mom and pop operation. The place is O.K., Clean, relatively modern and well kept.
The chamber person had a hard time understanding a simple request to leave extra coffee and toiletries as I worked overnight the last three days I was here. Not his fault I'm sure, but if you hire staff that caters to the general public, they should at least be able to respond to the language spoken by it's customers.
I'd like to say it was quiet, and it is generally. However, the person below me started playing loud music at 6 am, the time came back from shift. ARRGH!
Now for the kicker. Again, I can't blame the hotel owners for the following as part of the issues was a mis communication involving third parties.
I was awakened from a deep sleep by the phone. It has to ring twice. When I awoke from my deep slumber, I explained that I needed a late checkout.
WOW, to my great dismay, the owner asked for a FEE for this usual request.
As a seasoned traveler, I have stayed in a different motel in this province at least every week since the spring of this year. It never ceases to amaze me how some owners try to take advantage of their guest.
Interesting note here. I was going to rate this place a three but because of a simple indiscretion, my rating will drop considerably.
