We were travelling home and needed a few hours to sleep. I looked on Trivago and found this hotel for $55 and availability was 4 rooms left. When we arrived to the hotel the woman said was no rooms at that price and then offered us a room for $140 or $79 for non smoking. It was close to midnight... More

Room was clean Area was very quiet Service was very friendly and efficient Price was right....always nice to find a place that is reasonably priced where you would be happy to stay again. The pool was a disaster and should maybe be fixed or removed

We stay here as a half way stop between Vancouver and Calgary. Always clean, comfortable bed and very friendly owners. Even though it is near the highway - we have yet to hear any noise.

For the price, your hardly looking for luxury. Having said that, I have stayed in nicer places for cheaper. The rooms were fine, nothing special.

We decided we wanted a place to stay in Kamloops that would be half-way between Calgary and Vancouver, but did not want to spend a pile of money as we basically wanted a comfortable room and a pool, but we were not expecting a four-star as we knew it would just be a check in, a swim and wake up...

Terrible motel, do not stay here! Dirty room, dated, dirty coffee machine, swimming pool empty and dirty. Stayed for one night on the way from Vancouver to Banff, but will never stay here again, awful! Chose a motel next door or elsewhere, but do not stay here.

Plugs falling out of outlets, Curtains with big holes in them, Tap on sink fell off, didn't give us an option to change rooms, furniture covered in water stains and filthy carpets. Swimming pool with no water just garbage. Who could want anything more??

Excellent price, spotlessly clean rooms, friendly management, comfortable beds, It's a little run down, but complete with all the services.. including wifi. We were only staying one night on route to Vancouver.. Excellent budget hotel

Swimming pool was derelict and unusable. Buildings very old timber - all tired, set in an industrial area with the adjoining businesses all car dealerships.

When we first pulled up we were a little nervous... but to our surprise it was a great stay. It was just a quick overnight stop so we could sleep and that we did. The price was beyond reasonable and the room was very clean! Bed was comfortable too!
