From the outside, the Accent Inn appears as a motel. It might even look like it's not all that great of a property to say at. I've stayed in the one in Kelowna and it didn't stand out in my mind, so I expected the same when I stopped in for a business trip in August.
I was pleasantly surprised... even though the decor was quite similar (typical hotel fare), the cleanliness was outstanding. The basic amenties are all there (hot tub, decent sized pool, and room amenities were all up to par) and the hotel has extra stuff in case you forgot something. In addition, the beds were reasonably comfortable and clean (something I'm a bit of a stickler for). Front desk was incredibly nice, helpful, and accomodating. Particularly the lovely little Asian girl (I can't remember her name) who went out of her way for us a few times while we stayed there.
Although my GPS was confused as to where the hotel is (it's not REALLY on Columbia) it's actually in a much better location.
The White Spot on site? I wouldn't bother. There are some great eateries in Kamloops (Toast comes to mind) and there really is no reason to go to White Spot, especially when you consider the ridiculously slow service... but we wont get into that here.
The moral of the story is that I will definitely be staying at the Accent Inn next time I'm in Kamloops.
