I started going to Kelowna in the 1990s to play golf and have never been disappointed by how well I have been treated there. Had a great room when traveling through in June that was quiet and clean. Great free breakfast. I am running the local marathon in October and they were super about getting me a discounted rate and... More

This Holiday Inn has a good quality included breakfast. Foyer eating area very nice. I used the gym a couple of times and equipment was in good shape and clean. We also utilized meeting rooms there which were good quality rooms. there is a separate entrance to the attached conference centre which made things more convenient for the seminar participants.

Considering the room rate, this venue needs a bit more attention, Parking is not adequate for the size of the \hotel, the elevator smells of hydraulic fluid, and the fixtures in the suite are all dated and showing slight signs of wear. The television was smaller and older than usual, the remote control was worn out and didn't work very... More
