Avoid this place like the plague. It is next door to a flop house and far from Kelowna's hot spots. The building itself is deceiving as it looks okay from the outside but it is run mostly as an apartment which is overpriced. The heaters don't work, the kitchen's are under equipted. There are lots of ants. There is no... More

There are so many issues with Hotel Enigma, that I am at a loss where to start. First and foremost. The manager checked us in, and demanded payment in FULL before we stayed a night, but didn't tell us that there had been a flood in the building and there was NO HOT WATER and that he was unsure of...

The sign on the hotel said "Come in, We're OPEN'. In fact, the door was locked and there was no one there to open it.. In order to get to my room, which had been booked, I had to use a phone outside to call the manager to come and let me in. Then I had to wait outside til... More

Enigma came to our rescue in that we'd booked the Prestige Hotel but were so severely disappointed that opted not to even stay a night. Middle of vacation season so little available but Enigma had a studio available even without reservation. Suits us better to be free to do what we want & not be interrupted by chambermaids etc. Found... More

Well, we had a fine stay at this hotel. It is not your typical place - renting out apartments. It's a very small operation, maybe 1 or 2 employees and an owner who still has a bit to learn about the hotel business. Our room was pretty clean (the floors were dirty), but the bathroom was fine, and the rest... More

The room was a fair size, with a kitchen, which was a benefit, but was very dirty, and all the kitchen equipment had to be washed before using. Our children's socks did more cleaning on the floor, than had been done in a long time. It is a good location, near the beach, but whilst one manager was helpful, the... More

We booked to stay at Hotel Enigma for 3 nights- should have read this first. Dirty, stinks, crappy sheets- had to go buy decent pillows as we weren't given any. Owner and staff non-existant. double charged for the stay and still not reimbursed. Next door to a crack house and loud music playing all night. What a disaster- don't waste... More

We were booked into the Hotel Enigma's apartment fourplex for one week in July /07. It was disgusting! There was a strong odor of a cats dirty litter box. There were ants crawling all over the floor. The soiled mattresses had no mattress pads. The sheets and pillow cases were worn, torn and pilled. There was no house keeping and... More

At a time when bookings were extremely full just prior to peak season, calling the Enigma Hotel was a lifesaver. After having just moved here and requiring temporary accomodations, not only did they offer us a fully furnished upgraded two bedroom high-end apartment for a price discount (as they had no one BDR units left), they also allowed for our...

Don't ever stay at Hotel Enigma. The owners are absolutely unorganized and you may not even have a room to stay in once you get there. They had us booked in for 1 night, when it is their policy that you stay for 3 nights. We even phoned and confirm two weeks prior and they had us down. They also... More
