Very nice and cooperative staff. Rooms are clean and well equiped. This hotel matches the brand expectations. They are located about ten minutes out of tourist area along with many of the other international brands. Parking in the tourist area is fairly easy. The hotel is close to farmers market, Costco and Walmart. Two comments: They only have one elevator... More

We stayed at this hotel on the long weekend and upon arrival we were very worried that the hotel would be noisy as a number of teams were checking in. We were assigned a family suite in the tower/conference centre of the hotel and couldn't have been happier. The room was clean and very quiet throughout our visit. The housekeeping... More

We were just travelling through Kelowna on our way home from Victoria to Edmonton. They only had business rooms in the "tower" left and they were a little more money but we were tired and since it was our last night on the road we didn't care what we slept in.

Easy access to restaurants, highway, stores and golf courses we played. The staff were friendly. The room is clean and towels and beddings were replaced constantly.

I have stayed at the Holiday Inn Express in Kelowna on several occasions. The staff has always been friendly and helpful. The rooms are clean and nicely appointed.

We had booked three rooms for a reunion. we had a great time. The two water slides for the kids were great fun. Every one enjoyed themselves. One comment that there should be more supervision of the pool in the evening as rowdier young adults took over the pool and it was not safe for the younger children.
