We required just a place to stay on a return trip from the BC coast and only paid $76 CA (plus taxes) for an Executive King room. The price was extraordinarily reasonable for Kamloops in the summer season (booked through Expedia). We weren't looking for anything high end, just clean and convenient.
The room was clean, but the king bed took up most of the space in the room. There was a microwave and fridge--handy for snacks. The room windows were sealed, but the heat/ac worked quite well (considering the 33 degree day). The room's view was of the area out the back of the hotel, which was a little rundown--this is where the parking was. We were assured that there were security cameras, but there were warnings everywhere that the hotel was not responsible for anything.
The reason that we won't be going back was that the room we were in was adjacent to the bar/club and we didn't get any peace and quiet until after 2:00 a.m. When this was mentioned upon check out, the manager said that the noise level of those rooms closest to the club was well known and we should have been asked if this bothered us when we were checking in. Well, we weren't asked and it did bother us greatly as we had a very early start the next day.
So, be forewarned to check and make sure that your room is NOT near the club and insist that it isn't. Unless you are planning to be partying in the club and then it won't matter!!
