Myself and 6 other girls stayed at this hotel last weekend for one night, for a bachelorette party. We had rooms 221 and 223, which had an adjoining door, which was great!
Room: A little on the small side, but nice. TVs were older, but we didn't watch them anyways. Beds were comfy, pillows and linens very nice. Rooms have clearly been partially updated, but things like the ceilings and bathtubs look like they didn't receive the same TLC. Room was quiet, only ever heard noise when a young child was screaming in the hallway a few doors down.
Pool: Didn't go in, but tested it and it was fairly warm. It's a small, kind of uninviting poor, but would definitely do the trick for a quick swim (indoor).
Service: All of the customer service people we dealt with were great. Downside: Wifi was SUPER slow (couldn't watch streaming movies or youtube stuff). Talked to front desk, they said that it meant that there were other people using it. There's got to be a way to improve that though, no?
Location: Fantastic. The downtown area of Kamloops is pretty small, and we walked everywhere. Good restaurants and bars definitely within a 10 minute walk (all flat, no hills!).
Breakfast: We were SUPER impressed with the "continental" breakfast served at the restaurant next door (which is included in your room rate...but only 1 person per bed...which we thought was strange... they charge you $10 per person on top of that). Lots of fresh fruit, pastries, pancakes,three kinds of bread, juice, coffee, tea etc...). Again, super tasty, much much better than we were expecting.
Feel free to ask me if you have any questions :)
