This was a great venue for the conference. I stayed in a 4-bedroom shared suite. Each bedroom was clean and large enough to feel comfortable. Each had a bed, desk, TV, two lamps and closet. The suite had two washrooms, including showers, two fridges, microwave, table, chairs, freezer, and more. Plenty of parking. Clean and convenient.

This place is super cheap, conveniently located near the Tournament Capital Centre. It is SUPER basic, meaning you need everything from cutlery to pots and pans and dishware. Bedding and towels are included. We stayed in a suite with 4 bedrooms, each of which had a double bed with tv and desk. Each floor has really nice meeting rooms with... More

Not much to say. The rooms are set up as a student residence with 2 bedrooms, full kitchen and large bathroom. Very clean and quiet with a very basic complimentary breakfast. My only complaint is that if you book online (not the official website) you won't receive the directions to find the building which is buried inside the university campus.... More

This is the residence of the Thomson River University, and while it feels like the residence room that it is, it was prefect for our stay. We had a 2 bedroom suite which is great for a family of 4. The suite had a kitchenette but there was no cutlery, plates etc. so if you planned to use anything more... More

This is a dormitory on the TRU campus and is VERY basic. I agree with other reviews- calling it a suite is false advertising as it is a dorm room with 4 bedrooms and 2 baths. Each bedroom has a double bed, desk, 1 chair, lamp, phone and tv. We were stopping in Kamloops for 1 night, and had a... More

Spacious 2 bedroom suite that was very clean, quiet, had a great view and a simple continental breakfast for $93. Highly recommended for budget travelers, especially families. Hard to find because there are two buildings with the same address. . It looks like a big college dorm.

Despite trouble finding the place and a confusing check in we enjoyed our stay here. It is a student residence on the Thompson Rivers University Campus. We had a 2 bedroom suite on the 11th floor, with magnificent views. It was very clean, very quiet and a great value @ $79. Breakfast was bagels or cold cereal. Internet was fantastic.

My family and I were thrilled to find this place. The rooms were spacious and it was a great change for each of us four adults to have our own room after a long trip of sleeping on cots. The view of the city of Kamloops out the back windows were stunning. Comfortable, spacious and great value for families on... More

I've stayed here several times for teacher conferences and have always been impressed. Good clean rooms with TV, desk and a great view (especially from the higher, north facing floors). You share the bathroom with another person (the rooms are divided into two or four separate sleeping areas). You also share a kitchen area that has a large fridge and... More
