Yes, it's an old motel with older styling (e.g. paneling, dinged wood-work), but they've made efforts at updating where necessary (e.g. new tub surround, replaced carpet). It was clean (mostly: the inside of the drawers were not clean) and comfortable and a fabulous price. The clerk even went up to check the room to make sure it was clean before... More

I was surprised by the positive reviews - not a great place, even for the lower cost. Our 'non-smoking" room smelled like smoke, there were hairs all over the bathmat, and we were right next to a deck where people were smoking and drinking. I'm not too picky about where I stay, but I expect a clean, comfortable, quiet place.

I stayed here with the previous owners and it was acceptable for the price and location. Stayed there recently and omg it has gone downhill. Not very clean. we had the Manager come in our unit uninvited while we were out. I will not stay there again or recommend it.

Great staff. Close to downtown. The only thing that made this a 4 out of 5 was that the AC unit was louder than it should have been. On a budget and looking for a clean comfortable place than this is for you. Next door to a Denny`s for easy breakfast to boot.

The owners of this dump must write their own reviews.After booking on line 4 days earlier we are are told our room is AOK.I guess that means we dont need AC for the 37 degree heat or to have free water bottles put in the fridge.The furniture desk and couch look like they came out of an eastside Vancouver hotel...

A small unpretentious motel located a short 10 minute walk from the main street (Victoria St?) where there are lots of restaurants and shops. The friendly fellow on duty checked the room before checking me in to room 36 which is on the upper level. The room was clean and a decent size. The small wall air conditioner was a... More

Fountain motel in Kamloops is hidden gem and excellent value for money. I stayed there for 6 night for work and couldn't have asked for more. Rooms are super clean, bathrooms look newly renovated and staff is great. Nobody can beat the location. The hotel is 5 minutes walk to grocery store, 7-11, Starbucks and casino. I will definitely recommend... More

Stayed at Fountain Hotel with my wife for the weekend. The hotel is within walking distance to the mall, theater and restaurants. The bathroom looked renovated, and the linen seemed new and clean. Front desk was very helpful. Decently priced, great location ... Definetely will stay there next time I come to Kamloops.
