“Decently priced & Great location”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 29, 2014

Stayed at Fountain Hotel with my wife for the weekend. The hotel is within walking distance to the mall, theater and restaurants.
The bathroom looked renovated, and the linen seemed new and clean. Front desk was very helpful.
Decently priced, great location ... Definetely will stay there next time I come to Kamloops.

Karen the old manager has retired. The new people are not the best operators. We have been here about 10 times. Our room had not had the heat put on. They did not come in and make the beds and check the towels. You have to make sure these guys do their job.

The woman at the front desk was a nightmare to deal with. She wouldn't allow us to book a room over the phone, and when I asked to book it online she said she wouldn't accept the reservation. My husband was driving, and I was the one making the reservation with his credit card. Very bad business. I would never recommend staying somewhere that disrespects and talks down to their customers.

Across Columbia and a short distance East from the Hospital. Great value with hospital and seniors rates. Our room was nicely renovated and very clean. Comfortable Queen beds and a flat screen TV. The heat unit was quiet. I mention this because I have stayed in other places where the heating unit was really noisy. Not a lot of road noise. Kitchenette was a great feature with a long counter with stools under, a coffemaker and supplies, fridge, microwave, toaster, kettle, dishes, cutlery and a separate counter with kitchen sink. Karen, the on-site manager is very friendly and helpful. Just a great place to stay and we will definitely be back.

Room Tip: Apparently all rooms on the ground floor have been renovated.

Just passed through kamloops and needed a place for me, my husband and our baby to stay the night. This place was great! The price is great and it was super clean. Sure it might look a little dates inside but that doesn't matter to us. Plus it's a short walk to a ton of great restaurants. Great experience for us!

This is the best value motel in Kamloops. We had to travel for medical reasons to the hospital (2 blocks away). Perfect room - 2 Queens, fridge, micro and coffee service. As well there is small kitchenette with good counters,cupboards and dishes & cutlery. This area has a separate big kitchen sink and stools for sitting. Flat screen tv is mounted on wall so is easily visible when lying down. best of all - the rooms was spotless. Manager Karen is extremely nice and helpful. Housekeepers also very nice and accommodating. Price is perfect - we booked for 1 nite and stayed for 3 and will definatlly be staying there every time we go to Kamloops.
