We originally called to book the Howard Johnson next door, the agent said no need to book over the phone, they had lots of rooms available, just come down. So we did, went into the Howard Johnson and rang the bell. An employee appeared and said that the "Howard Johnson was full, but the motel next door was the same... More

Me and my wife came to visit Kamloops as a last minute compromise as our budget wouldn't allow Kelowna and we must say we were very happy during our two nights three days in the city. It ended up being a very relaxing stay but in regards to the hotel I have to give credit for the great price, the... More

This hotel is obviously an older run down hotel however it could still get good ratings if they had any clue how to run a motel. We needed towels and they said they didn't have any, shortly after that housekeeping came around and gathered all the towels and said they would return them as soon as they were cleaned This...

This motel was simply a place to sleep, but was lacking in many areas. No one was ever at the front desk. The four times we required assistance, we needed to ring the bell multiple times and wait for someone to come. The phone in the room did not work, and although they replaced it, it meant that we had... More

When I went to the desk to inquire about getting towels and toilet paper (none provided) no one was there, no one answered my repeated ringing of... More

Broken air conditioner, so loud it was impossible to sleep. And it's HOT here. Broken TV. Dirty furniture. No towels. No toilet paper. No "free breakfast" as advertised on Booking.com No one at the front desk to get wifi password from. Yes, it was cheap. But this place was yuck.

I'm particularly fond of these little motels, they tend to reek of character. This one did not disappoint. the room was clean, the beds were comfy and there was a fridge and microwave. it was a little bit of a wait getting attention at the front desk but it looked like they were working both properties so understandably they were...

We have stayed at the fountain before as they are centrally located and cheap! We stayed 4 nights this trip. Parking is tight! Great location to hospital. Our room was clean although rooms are not cleaned or made up daily. You need to ask for but to be made up or for clean towels. Some of the clientele look like... More

Our visit to this hotel didn't start off too well. As we drove into the car park, there were three separate people smoking around the building, the one on the balcony was shirtless and there was no-one at reception even after waiting a bit. Nothing inherently wrong with these things, but it didn't instill confidence. The room we booked was... More
