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. The only thing that we don't like was that there was no towels in their pool site. We requested one at the front desk and waited for 30 mins until were done but no... More

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. This hotel is not located near the beach and the populated tourist attractions, but it is within walking distance of Kelowna's Orchard Park Mall. There are several restaurants and movie theatres nearby.... More

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.

We stayed at 2 Holiday Inn Express hotels this trip, Kelowna and Kamloops. In both cases, my wife was forced to use her puffer frequently as a result of scents in the lobby (stronger in Kamloops), and the dust coming out of the air conditioning unit in Kelowna. We turned on the heat and the air smelled like dust and... More

We've stayed here about six times. Maybe more. It is nice enough. for a hotel with no restaurant and a teensy pool, because it is clean and in good shape. The rooms are nice and well taken care of. But the staff always act like they are doing you a favour when you visit. I never feel welcome. There are... More

Working in Kelowna for a couple of days and I brought my family to the HI Express. It's a very nice, comfortable hotel with good services, including a full breakfast. Nothing to complain about on the property, the rooms, the services. My only pet peeve is that when booking I specifically told them, "my daughter is very excited that you... More

The rooms were very clean and comfortable. The beds were wonderful Breakfast was a full meal including, eggs, bacon, sausage, cinnamon buns (warm and delicious) cereal, breads, juice, coffee, tea, cereal. I can't think of anything that was missing. The pool and hot tub was a welcome relief after driving through the mountains all day. Would definitely recommend.

The Holiday Inn Express in Kelowna is a nice hotel with good pool & fitness facilities. The location is convenient as well. The staff is very friendly and welcoming. The rooms are a good size and the beds are very comfortable. It is my hotel of choice in Kelowna.
