“Meh...old, tired, nice if it was 1985”
Reviewed 15 October 2011

Never stayed at a hotel in Kamloops so had a look at the reviews. This seemed to rank near the top and similar price range to a couple other better than average chain hotels.

I dont get it...aside from the nice courtyard and lounge there really isnt anything above average about this place. The rooms are well below average for this price and look about 30 years old. The room reminded me of the discount 2 storey motel rooms....Tv had like 8 channels...Wifi not available period. Reviews and rating on tripadvisor seems to be quite accurate but this one isnt and Im not sure how people could place this at the top of the list based on quality and the price.

Stay at one of the newer chains being built in the area...they looked new, modern and what you would expect for this price range...

Your comments are appreciated. I am sorry if you were disappointed with the current décor, television channel selection and lack of wifi access. These are all things we are currently working to improve. While the property has seen various updates since its establishment back in 1989, we are currently in the process of phase one of three phases, which will see a complete overhaul of the property. As you may or may not have noticed, the second wing of the property, across the atrium, was closed as well as the standard hotel lobby. Both are undergoing the updates right now. The wireless internet has been contracted at this point and we are just awaiting the install. Lodgenet television is also on the way to enhance your viewing selection. I hope you do come back in the spring and request to try our updated rooms for your comfort. We will still offer the nice courtyard and lounge at that time. Thank you for taking the time to share your thoughts.

I stayed for two nights while attending a meeting at the Kamloops Convention Centre. Upon check-in, I was pleased with the service offered by the front desk. The room was was clean, especially the bathroom, although the grout in the tile floor showed traces of bleached-out mildew stains. The only other quibble was that the pull for one of the black-out curtains was disconnected.
I had one not so nice surprise when I found a large earwig in the shower curtain one morning. Unnerving, but it could have been worse.
One security concern I observed was that when I needed an extra key for my room, all I had to mention was my name and room number -- I was not asked for any proof of identity.
All my meals were included in the package price for the conference, so were supplied through convention catering, and I found both the quantity and quality to be impressive, even considering that everything was served buffet style.

Room Tip: Ask for a balcony room on the north side of the north wing (better views, not overlooking the parkin...

We appreciate you sharing your thoughts of your recent two night stay with us. We agree that an update to the property is now due. The housekeeping staff does an outstanding job keeping the rooms very clean, but at this point we have elected to give the property a multi-million dollar update replacing everything in the guest rooms. We are currently engaged in a major overhaul of the 105 guest rooms in our south wing. Not only will the grout be replaced, but also the tub and everything else in the rooms including the blackout curtains you mentioned. As you can imagine it is an exciting transition for us. Luckily for us, the property is separated into two separate wings, enabling us to offer approximately 100 guest rooms in the north wing to current guests with full amenities available and little disruption to our guest services.
Your security concern in receiving the extra key without review of your identification will be reviewed with our front office staff immediately. Thank you.
I will pass along your positive opinion of the food services in convention centre to the banquet staff and chef.
Once again, thank you for taking the time to connect with us to offer your insightful experiences.

Very nice property. Reasonable price, good food (pricey) but the buffet several times a week is excellent. We enjoyed an outdoor BBQ one evening. Restaurant staff in particular were very nice. (Cheaper places to eat close by.) Pool atrium is quite nice with salt water pool although, it was closed for maintenance for part of our stay. Decor in the room was outstanding. We had a two bedroom suite and really enjoyed the layout, portable fireplace, flat screen, etc. Close to highway so I could get to anywhere in town fast. The room was very quiet. The smaller windows don't do justice to the million dollar view just outside. Very happy with our visit and would go back there again.

Room Tip: Room on third floor at corner of atrium on south wing have a great balcony overlooking the pool and...

Very well appointed and welcoming hotel. Pleasant staff, very good and clean rooms, good quality restaurant and also a pleasant indoor pool. Well located a bit out of town (plenty buses going back and forth from right outside) but good parking more than makes up for that. Wouldn't hesitate to return - recommended

We stayed here for one weekend and had a great stay. The value was great. Our room was clean, the staff was helpful. We especially liked the courtyard in the hotel, it was beautiful. If you get a chance to order room service or to use the resteraunt I would definately recommend the food. We had the best breakfast ever staying here! If we need a place to stay in Kamloops again, we will stay here for sure.

No problems at all with this place. Good family hotel. Large room for four right near the courtyard that has a nice pool. Close to the highway for easy access but still quiet.
