“A decent room for $40”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 20 August 2011

Unfortunately, the price was $100, which was way too much for the quality of this old, 1950's style motel. It was clean and management was friendly, it was just over priced for the quality.

Stayed August 2011, travelled with friends

The place is run down, smells like the carpets haven't been cleaned in years and priced barely cheaper than places I've stayed that are MUCH cleaner! Only an overnight, so the location was convenient, but I won't stay again. My advice - pay the extra $30 and get a nice, clean, inviting room somewhere else.

Just not worth the money. Don't waste your money here, there are multiple places that may cost a little more but are worth it.

Stayed in a family suite, expected it to be a little larger. Room was clean, needs some upgrades though.

Stayed in room 205 as an overnight stop and had no issues. The room was clean and tidy and same with the washroom. We checked in at 11pm but the guy at the desk was very efficient about it. Free wireless internet was great.
For $113 it wasn't a really great deal, but I guess for having zero problems it was fine. All in all it was a good experience. There was a microwave and mini fridge (empty), which we didn't use but I didn't expect to see those in an econolodge room.

Stayed in room 207 ,Charming room with nice layout.Carpet had not been vacuumed and toilet leaked all night and had severe rust stains in the bowl.It took two trips to the front desk to get the remote to work.Bed was excellent and room was very quiet considering its location on Hwy#1 and the rail tracks.Lady on front desk in the morning certainly does not know how to smile.This place has the potential to be very nice with some attention to detail and a lesson in P.R. Apart from the carpet room was clean and amenities very good.

As we were on a spontaneous trip for the weekend, I hadn't looked or booked any hotel rooms prior to leaving. After having great success at the Econo lodge in Hinton, we went out of our way to look for one in Kamloops.

Unfortunately the room in Kamloops could not hold a torch to the night prior. It was dirty, old, and felt a little unsafe. I will give the hotel clerk a better rating than the clerk in Hinton, but that's all this Econo lodge receives. It was cheap enough I suppose at $80.00 (plus taxes), and I can't really expect a lot for the price.

What dissapoints me is the seeming lack of consistency. That goes for any hotel chain. Pick a standard and stick to it please!! We thought we found a great new hotel, that was cheap and satisfying. Now I'm not sure we will stay at one again (except maybe the Hinton location). I don't like crap shoots.

Free wireless was a plus though.
