We had stayed at this motel years ago, and I wasn't much looking forward to staying there again, but the sign outside said it had been renovated so we decided to try it.
While the bathroom was still very small, the entire room had been redone. The carpet was clean, new paint, new curtains and new furniture. There was a flat screen TV as well as a small fridge and microwave.
We got a room with a king bed, and it was very comfortable. On top of all this, the price was very reasonable for Kamloops in August. (The reason we didn't stay at the place we usually stay in Kamloops was that the price DOUBLED since our last stay there, which was in April 2011).
This is not a luxury accommodation to be sure, but for a reasonably priced modest motel, it was great. Because we were so surprised at the changes made to the Lamplighter - it may just become our "usual" overnight stay in Kamloops.
Close enough to all amenities, as Kamloops is a small enough city that anywhere is really only 10 minutes away - restaurants nearby for a quick breakfast too.More
