“Good place to stop”
Reviewed 3 November 2013

Stayed one night and found this hotel to be comfortable and well located. Short drive to many restaurants and close to the highway for easy on and off. Usual Holiday Inn Express standard. Comfortable room and good internet. Breakfast room is way too small for the number of people using it. Staff are very pleasant and efficient. I will stay there again.

There are two rooms on the main floor (near a side entrance) reserved for people travelling with a dog. The room was a double queen and very pleasant. It must be regularly deodorized as it did not smell as do some pet-friendly establishments. The check-in clerk was very helpful and suggested an off leash park that was only about 5-6 blocks away. We did not stay for the breakfast as we opted to take breakfast elsewhere. It was a very nice hotel experience and a great place to relax and sleep in while en route from Vancouver to Edmonton. Nearby (without having to go back on the freeway) is a large assortment of restaurants and a good pub where we had supper.

Stayed here for one night on our way to Vancouver. We found the price was reasonable for $133 night. Good thing we booked ahead online before our trip - there was a soccer tournament in town and the hotel was sold out and the rates were also higher. There is several restaurants close by and we had dinner at Milestones. The room was large and the beds were comfy. We had the free breakfast here in the morning and they had a pancake machine, bagels, boiled eggs, yogurts, cereals, toast, cinnamon buns, fresh fruit, coffee, milks, etc There were several families with children and this would have saved money on breakfasts. Our room was on the third floor by the stairs. My only complaint was that room # 303 air conditioner was quite loud when it was running. The ice machine was end of the hall and it was nice to get the Globe and Mail at our door in the morning. We filled up gas across the street when we left - but didn't know there was a Costco and gas bar just down the street a bit and should have got our gas there cheaper. Enjoyed our stay at this hotel.

Josh at holiday inn express epitomizes quality customer service at the highest level. Our jacuzzi and tv both were not working today during our second stay here, but he tried to fix the jacuzzi by turning on the boiler, he even came to our room and tried checking the tv to see if it can be fixed. When you talk about customer service even a seven star could not beat what Josh had to offer. Josh, hope a seven star hotel gives you a call, if you need a recommendation just let me know.

My family and I have stayed at this location in the past and were very happy with our experience...however it appears that time has not been kind to this hotel. On this occasion my wife and I booked the jacuzzi suite for the first time. Although the room was clean it is desperately in need of a lot TLC especially considering the room rate. The most frustrating part of this experience was the treatment at check in. When we arrived in Kamloops at 1:00 we stopped in to see if our room was ready and we were simply told to come back after 3:00, without the young man at the desk even checking the room status. Adding fuel to the fire was the fact that we saw several different parties checking "IN" at 11:00 the next morning.

Thank you very much for taking the time to review our property and I am sorry to hear that there were a couple of items noted from your stay that we need to improve on. I have passed along your review to the maintenance department to see that they touch up what they can immediately in the room to ensure its appearance is freshened up. I apologize for the delay in checking in as well as we do and always try to check our guests in early if it available and will follow up with the front desk. We do hope that you will return in the future so we can try and make it right for you.

We stayed overnight at this place on our way to Vancouver, and we loved it. The location was so convenient, close to the highway yet away from all the noise. It was close to a nearby mall and quality restaurants which was a plus. Check-in was smooth and the rooms were really clean and well kept. No complaints on the bathroom either. The bed were cozy and comfortable. And to top it off the complimentary breakfast was just right to start the day. Will definitely visit again.

This is the first time staying at a Holiday Inn Express. I found it clean and comfortable. The front desk staff was very nice and personable. Jessica was very friendly and it was a pleasure dealing with her. I had no problems with the room. It was very clean and comfortable. The iron needs to be replaced though. The bottom has a stain that could be transferred to a shirt. I didn't use the coffee maker, but think that a Tassimo or Kureg would work very nicely. The continental breakfast was great! Well done! I hope to stay longer next time I am in town so that I can take advantage of the other facilities.
