I was here in 2010, and again this year. Once again, easy parking in front, easy check-in, satisfactory room. Hot, tired - and there's a store around the corner with cold beer and snacks. Coffee shop adjacent to hotel, too.
Several restaurants an easy walk away. We had sushi for dinner at the Lillooet Inn (only available last half of week so check).
Miyazaki House just behind the hotel provides an interesting diversion. Free. There's a concert on its grounds every summer Friday night. 7-9 so no noise problem; hotel windows blocked the sound anyway.
Simple, effective air conditioning - although it might be better if it didn't blow directly across the bed!
Morning breakfast was well organized, basic but satisfactory. Server was cheerful and friendly. Didn't open till 8:00, so be aware of that if you're an early starter. We didn't see that anything else in town had got itself moving before 8 either, so maybe you should just plan for that.
As others have said, this is not a fancy place. But there are signs that an ongoing effort is being made, and I give points for that. The grout in our shower had been recently replaced - and that's an area even the top hotels fall down on. There were little signs here and there explaining how things work. A small 2nd-floor lounge has a microwave. Our room had a small fridge. Etc. Etc.
