“Never Again!”
Reviewed July 5, 2012

We do not recommend. The room was tiny, dark and you could see light around the door to the outside. Everything was worn and / or stained. Not worth the money. Pillows were so thin you needed 3 but there was only one.
Our room was on the ground floor facing a back parking lot/alleyway

Room Tip: There are many other hotels in Kamloops so do a better job of previewing them than we did.

We stayed in a room with 2 double beds. The room needs updating but other than that..the room was clean and smelled fine. There was no fridge which was disappopinting..I really like having a fridge in my room. THe room came with a hairdryer which was great for me. The bath room was clean but like I said needs updating. The remote for the TV didn't work for everything..but that didn't really matter for me.

Stay at Howard Johnson Inn Downtown for a weekend for 2 nights with my husband and kids and it was a wonderful stay. Our room was clean and smelled good. Wireless internet worked fine and continental breakfast saved our family $25 every mornings. This hotel has best staff I have ever come across. Every time I needed somethingThey always offered to come to my room and deliver. Overall, I would say this Howard Johnson is my choice of accommodation for my future stays in Kamloops.

Used secret saver to find this hotel, never again. The place is terrible and I strongly suggest that it is not good value even at the discounted price. This is the type of hotel that can ruin a holiday. Room smelled and was dirty, tv did not work properly, staff were not helpful, they sent me to the wrong room, I carried all of my bags upstairs only to find out that our room was downstairs, door did not lock properly, noisy. Big mistake, will not trust the secret saver option ever again.

I was on a business trip and barely knew anything about Kamloops. I needed a good value hotel possibly in donwtown. I was checking the hotels on my laptop & comparing prices and saw Howard Johnson Inn. I decided to take a look and 5 mins later I reached there. I parked my car. I booked the room and decided to take a shower before exploring the town. The bathroom was very clean. Then I put my clothes on and went to front desk. Manager was there and he was really helpful. He advised me a good Greek Restaurant. Later I went to a club and had a great night.
I stayed 2 more days and left Kamloops. I will be going back to Kamloops in 3-4 weeks, and Howard Hohnson Inn will be my first choice. In the end, if you are looking for ;
-an accomodation with a great price value
-a clean room & bathroom
-great downtown location
-Helpful manager & front desk
You should consider Howard Johnson.
