Stayed an extended weekend for a wedding. Average in terms of what you would expect from a Holiday Inn Express. Was clean, quiet and family friendly. Found beds to be very comfortable which was a pleasant surprise. Better options out there however for average nightly rate

Arrived at 3 pm hoping to check in one hour early. Not an option. The hotel was full the night before so we sat in the lobby using wifi for a few minutes. Left the hotel and returned at 5:30 pm. Were able to check in to our room. Upon noticing the absence of bath towels, I called the front... More

First all, the rooms & housekeeping as up to the usual standard of Holiday Inns, which is fine for a family stay. Price was over $300 a night, but expected during this time of year. The two things that made this the worst hotel of the six we stayed at during our vacation was the water slides & breakfast. Every... More

Thank you for your very detailed review. I must point out that it would depend on if you were at the breakfast bar at closing time?

Overall the hotel needs a thorough clean. Negatives-The first room we were given the bathroom smelled of urine they were good and moved us to another room almost instantly. The second room was just ok on checkin, the bathroom light/fan switch almost electrocuted me more than once or the light in the bathroom would not come on at all. Ceilings... More

We were visiting family so we did not use the amenities. We only slept here and had breakfast. The beds were very soft and we did not sleep well.

Thank you for your review. We are pleased that you did enjoy your stay in Kelowna and with us. We understand the breakfast rush - at a later time in the mornings.
