Thanks for your comments. Our staff have been working hard this summer as we are busier than ever. Guests are commenting on their efforts and our breakfast changes (pancake machine is a big hit!)

En route from Vancouver to Calgary we stayed at the Kamloops Best Western Plus and we had a good night's sleep, an opportunity to connect with our family via the internet and a good breakfast which allowed us to get an efficient start on the day. The room was very nice in terms of decor and comfort. The breakfast was outstanding and was included in the price of the room. They served fresh fruit and canned fruit salad, egg patties, local bakery breads and pastries and very crisp cooked bacon. The highlight in the breakfast room was a machine that prepared and cooked pancakes to order. Many guests gave it a try and were pleased with the piping hot resutls. Coffee, tea and orange juice were also available. Interestingly, we discovered that all rooms are equipped with grab bars in the bath tub. This was a feature we appreciated as one of our party has a disability for which a grab bar is a desirable commodity.

Room Tip: This chain seems to give service to the travelling public. If there is something you want - for us...

Thank you for your reply. Many of our guests are complimenting us on our breakfast, especially that we use a local bakery and dairy company to supply our product for them. Our new pancake machine is a big hit with the kids.

Thanks for the comments!

It's been a while since I stayed at a BW and man have they come up. Used to be pretty basic all around, but not they've got BW plus and supposedly even "premier" to boot. I've not tried premier yet, but this BW plus is super nice. Big room, nicely finished bathroom, ceramic tile job is pretty awesome. The facilities here are great all 'round and a hot breakfast is not just toast and jam here, no sir, there is a full spread.

Really impressed.

As our slogan says, "Our standards are anything but!". The staff get excited when we can "Wow" a guest which we seem to be doing quite regularly this summer.

Our new Rock Feature on our exterior is also getting great reviews!

Room was clean and the location was good. I would have rated higher but thought the price was higher than other Best Westerns I stayed in that had the same or better quality.

Thank you for your reply. Rates are based on demand and adjusted seasonally. The date you were here was during a city wide conference in town so any discounted rates would not have been available. We do keep our CAA and Harley Davidson discounts always open.

First off, this is an older hotel. The configuration in the rooms is weird (the beds are right by the door and the bathroom is at the end of the room opposite the beds). Strange. First time I've ever seen this configuration - even in and older hotel. Because the beds were closer to the door, it made the noise from the door to the hall seem more prominent. Not that it would have made a difference - there was a wedding there that weekend, and there was someone in and out about 3 rooms surrounding us until about 4am - the noise was intolerable. AND that was when I requested a 'quiet room' because I am a 'light sleeper'. Nice.

Of course, breakfast was a gong show in the morning. It was sooo busy and the staff did very little to mitigate this.The eggs were powdered and the sausages tasted like cardboard (the manufactured ones I am not usually too picky about, but these were DISGUSTING!).

When I complained about the noise when I checked out, I didn't get a sorry, instead I got a "Yeah, there's a wedding here this weekend'. Nice. That's what you get for $200 a night- YUP!

Oh well - the kids like the pool (even though it was crammed with sooo many people).

Might have had a different experience mid-week, so I am not rating them too low. It was clean, so they get some points for that!

Thank you for your comments from your visit with us. We are sorry that the wedding party we had here was noisy. I will speak to our Desk Agents who should have dealt with your compliant in a better manner.

I have sent this guest a private message so we can respond directly to their concerns.

This weekend was busier than normal with many families with our Watchtower conference and the Breakfast room was busy just before they departed each morning.

We found ourselves having to stay at this location in Kamloops, BC when our intended visit to a different location had to be cancelled because a landslide prevented entry into the area and the road was closed.

I would never have picked Kamloops as a rest stop while travelling but having stayed at this location, I would recommend this property to others and if the opportunity presents itself, I would pick this location for another stay.

The rooms were huge and extremely clean, lovely amenities ,a big screen tv and newer bathrooms. Because this was an unexpected quick stop over and we were tired, we didn't explore too much of the property but from what I observed, it was excellent. The other positive was that the front desk staff, being aware of the circumstances around our reason for having to stay at the hotel, took the time to print highway updates desk so that we would have current information on what roads were open for use the following morning.

Our stay at this location was a welcome respite in what was otherwise a very hectic and long day for us so I felt it deserved a positive review and a recommendation. Thanks again.

Thank you for your comments. I am glad my staff were able to both accommodate you on a busy day and kept you appraised of the highway schedule. It was a hectic couple days with the closures.
