“Unfriendly service, bug and hairs on our beds and overpriced room for poor quality.”
Reviewed June 6, 2010

Our girls' softball team and parents came to this hotel because it was recommended by our team manager. The hotel view looked good on the website. The room was musty. There were loud noises during the night from people using their showers and toilets. We found a bug on the bed and hairs inside the other bed. We asked to change the sheets the next day but they never changed them due to the fact, we marked the sheets and the hairs were on the same spot in the bed. The manager said "they were changed and they're professionally done". The good part about being here was that it was close to the ball park, and they let us use their gathering space as our breakfast room.

I recall this situation. Once we were advised of the problem we changed the bedding. They inspected and asked for the sheets to be changed again. I could see no problems but I personally supervised a second changing to ensure there were no problems. All of our sheets are sent off the property for processing. The odd time they might have returned with a hair on them from processing. We have since purchased new sheets to replace all existing stock and are doing our own laundry to ensure quality. As for the cost of our rooms we provide an excellent product for the price we charge.

Travelled with my boyfriend and his band for a couple of gigs in Kamloops. The Fortune is located north of the river. Not in the centre of town but close to the airport and a sports complex. Other people staying there included fire fighters and pilots fighting the wildfires in the hills, members of sports teams, and a smattering of families just passing through.
Across the street is a 24-hr MacDonalds (24-hr in-store, not just drive thru), and a little further up the road (walking distance) is an extra foods, Shoppers Drug Mart, Liquor store, subway, pub, etc.
Front desk lady was super helpful when we had questions about attractions. Hotel guests can use a bbq, front desk lady had all the flippers etc. to borrow. We went across to the Extra Foods one night for weenies and had a cookout. They even had an extra propane tank when the first one ran out, and plastic forks when we realized we had no way to eat our potato salad.
Pool and hot tub area was clean. Hot tub was hot but not scalding. Pool was warm. Small but nice for a quick dip.
Room was clean. Included mini-fridge, microwave, coffee maker. Water pressure was excellent. AC unit was loud, but we turned it off when we went to sleep and the room stayed cool enough. Walls between rooms are cement, so didn't hear much from our neighbours (I don't think they heard much from us either). Room was $85 plus taxes.
Overall good budget accommodation if you don't mind not being in the centre of town, which was about a 10 minute drive. I would reccommend this place.

Stayed August 2009, traveled as a couple
