I stayed at this hidden gem when my wife was in the hospital for 3 days last week. I have to say I was impressed with the cleanliness given the rate was only $80 taxes included. Everything I needed was available in the room . Coffee maker was clean, flat screen was impressive, fridge and microwave were available. Staff was... More

fountain motel Kamloops is a excellent hotel on Columbia St. Our room smelled good, very clean and very accommodating staff. Everything is nearby and I will definitely be back at the fountain motel from now on. Free parking is sometimes hard to find downtown but they don't charge for it

Small family operated hotel. Very clean but the other business' that are ran out of this hotel in at least two of rooms left me a little worried about my safety. I thought that someone might come to room looking for a hooker.

Do yourself a favor and find a motel 6 or something that is a grade above this disaster. I don't care about amenities, but sanitary and clean is required. Obviously there are different definitions of "clean". Clean doesn't equal Yellow stains on sheets, other such stains and unmentionables on the mattress and comforters, Dingy pillows, obvious scuffs and dirt on... More

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...
