“Good Experience”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed May 8, 2013

My husband had to work in Kamloops for a couple of days. I tagged along in order to have a mini-break. We didn't bother to look for a place to stay until we got to Kamloops. We asked around and were recommended Maverick Motor Inn. I looked the place up on Tripadvisor before booking; once again, the reviews were right on!

Staff are very outgoing and kind, particularly the reception staff, who made check-in fast and easy. We had a room on the view side of the motel, which i strongly recommend. Someone else in our party had a freeway view and said the traffic noise was considerable. We barely heard any traffic and very much enjoyed the view.

The motel appears to have been recently renovated. Our room certainly was fresh and clean-looking. Cleanest bathroom I've encountered in a hotel in a long while! The bed was relatively comfortable but quite hard: you can get a mattress pad if you need it.

Most of the gripes I read about for this motel had to do with the Continental breakfast. I, personally, couldn't eat most of the food due to food allergies, but it appeared to be no different from most places I've stayed and, for a Continental breakfast (which is usually a roll, butter and jam and coffee) the choices of cereals, bread and tinned fruit was, I thought, fine, particularly for the price we paid for the room. We didn't try out the Chinese restaurant directly next to the motel because of my food allergies so I can't comment on the quality, though the people who recommended the hotel to us told us that the food was good.

The motel is, as I mentioned, close to the freeway, so it's easy to find. It's also just beside the police station, the Information Centre and the only mall in town. There are lots of places to eat within walking distance (7 minutes uphill!) or a short drive away. I had the time and energy, so I walked down into town one day (there is a bus stop very close to the motel, so you can get around more easily than by walking) then walked along the river trail. The walk into town wasn't too much of a thrill because of the busy roads one has to walk along. However, the historic downtown area is lovely and the trail was fun to walk along.

Thanks to all the staff at the Maverick who made our stay such a pleasant one.

Room Tip: Definitely get a view room!

Only stayed for one night. Staff was friendly and very good at there job.
Hotel was clean and comfortable. Locations is a little out of the way if you need to be downtown but is just off the highway. The Chinese restaurant on site is very good and the staff there was very good as well. Did not have breakfast although it was offered.

I have stayed in various Kamloops hotels/motels as I often work there for business. I think the Maverick is by far the best bang for your buck hotel/motel. The Maverick is in a very nice area of Kamloops, and close to a number of good restaurants (Including Beijing Chinese Restaurant attached to the Maverick Motor Inn). The employees are very nice and helpful, as well as the rooms are very clean and well maintained. The pool and hot tub are always in great working order and well maintained.

I Highly Recommend the Maverick if you are staying in Kamloops!!

We Spent one night at the Maverick and we were not one bit disappointed. Everything about it was clean and comfortable with good beds. Front desk staff were very friendly and helpful. The breakfast was certainly adequate. We would not hesitate to stay there again.

Room Tip: We had a second floor room with a view of the city, quiet and very pleasant.

I have been staying at the Maverick for the past 6 years for a couple weeks each year. I would highly recommend staying at the maverick. Very nice views of the Thompson valley, very clean rooms! And they have a fantastic pool water slide and hot tub to enjoy! The best bang for your buck in Kamloops hands down!

We had a Jacuzzi room which was a good size and had a very comfortable king size bed. The room temperature was comfortable. There was a gas fire place if you needed it. The room was clean and well maintained. The towels were soft and toiletries were sufficient. The continental breakfast offered cereals, fruit, muffins and toast. The staff were very friendly. It was a good hotel for a one night stopover.
