“Very average, very overated and kinda expensive”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed May 14, 2012

We stayed here on our way through to Vancouver, this was the first hotel we stopped at. It was quite expensive and he rooms were very basic and simple. On our way back through Kamloops we stayed at the pub in town and for a cheaper price stayed in a much nicer place, in walking distance to the city centre with fantastic food. Definatley look around at other options before staying here.

Hotel is built of concrete block,good for sound proofing of the traffic.Our room had 2 comfotable queens with very good linens.32 inch samsung flat screen tv, mini fridge, microwave,and coffee maker. The front desk man? or owner? was really nice to deal with definetly a people person.We only stayed for one night on our way home, but this hotel would be great for a long stay. If we are ever in Kamloops this will be our choice.

Room Tip: Great value for a short or long stay.

We used this hotel as a stopover in Kamloops during our flydrive from the Rockies down to Vancouver. Typical motel like set up, extremely pleasant lady on reception, checked in with no problems even though they were not expecting us, administration error with booking agent. Room very clean and tidy, microwave and fridge in the room. Free wi-fi to boot. Very handy for local shopping mall, coffee shop, McDs and Denneys. Went to Dennys for breakfast, well recommended, 2 mins drive from motel. Motel defo in nicer area of Kamloops. Spot on.

The room we stayed in was clean and comfortable. The price was very reasonable compared to the next closest one in the area which was double the cost. All the staff where very friendly. We stayed there when the summer games just started and didn't hear any noise from anyone even though all rooms were booked. The A/C was a bit noisy but most window ones are. We still got a good nights sleep regardless. I would recommend this place to anyone who is planning on staying on the north shore area. Plenty of places to go within walking distance.

This is our first stop when we travel from Vancouver to Prince George. The office staff has always greeted us with a smile and they are very courteous. Our email requests for our travel dates are answered very quickly. The cleanliness of the rooms are never in question. As for the sound of the AC unit, we use a sound machine at home and have no trouble sleeping. We love the North Side of Kamloops for the shopping, food and quiets parks along the river.

Room Tip: The North Hills shopping centre is across the street. A short walking distance.

The room was clean which is a plus. The air-conditioner was extremely noisy and we were told all window air-conditioners are noisy. We have been staying in motel for the past seven days and did not have one air-conditioner that was this noisy. The new green air-conditioner/heater units are virtually silent. Stay during cooler weather and open the window. Otherwise, fairly well located, no good restaurants in the area. You have to go downtown to eat.

Yes, it's convenient, clean, budget priced and well placed but the owner has a contract with a local train company and about 20 young people stay at the motel every night and party on the outside BBQ deck creating the usual noise associated with beer drinking. And to make matters worse the owner placed us in a room just feet from the party. (Where was his head?) Note: The air conditioning units are so loud we couldn't sleep. You're better to pay more and get some shut-eye somewhere else.
