Waffle maker, English muffins ( which I had to ask for more for another guest as the mgmt was not forthcoming with any bread either. Juice and cereal. Fruit selection - one over ripe banana and...

This hotel was fine, but for the price we paid, $139, I did not find this hotel to be good value for the money. However, having said that, kelowna is outrageously expensive in the summer. This is an old mom and pop motel that was purchased by Howard Johnson's and renovated. The rooms are nice but tight. The furniture seems... More

By Kelowna standards, relatively inexpensive. "Relatively". Noisy highway, small rooms, bathrooms look renewed but not with good workmanship. Very dirty (stained) chairs in breakfast area. Lots of warnings about penalties for smoking in the rooms so smokers stand outside your door and smoke even if you have the door open (and right beside at ac inlet!). Will try another place... More

Now I am worried about the other HJ hotels I have booked into. If this is anything to go by. The reception we got from the young lady should have been our first warning. She needs an attitude adjustment. Then being asked for a bond of $200 per room??? In our room I found a; a fork, coffee beans and... More

It's hard to fault this place, as you know what you're getting when it was the cheapest in its class. It has everything you need for a night's sleep, but absolutely nothing else. No chair except a straight back wooden desk chair, no towel rack by the sink, no luggage rack to open your suitcase on, one bedside table with... More

Though it doesn't look like much from the outside, our room was perfect for our needs. Our room had been updated so it had a new-ish feel and our bed was very comfortable. They offer a modest continental breakfast consisting of waffles, fruit, cereal, juice, tea and coffee. We found the staff very pleasant and helpful, especially Dave. They offer... More
