A nice and quiet place to sleep when I stayed here I stayed on the 6th floor in the tower. I think there were maybe two or three more guests on the floor so it was quiet and the room was clean the bed comfortable i usually do not get much sleep in hotels but this was great. The parkade was nice no frozen windows to deice. The breakfast was even a bit more varied then the usual HI breakfast definately would come back.

Room Tip: A room in the tower is well worth the extra few dollars.

Dear Guest (eurocanuck73),

Thank you for your review of our property!

We are so happy that you had a great sleep in one of our tower rooms, they are really nice rooms and we get a lot of positive feedback about these room types.

We agree that the parkade is an added bonus at the property and it definitely saves having to brush the snow and ice off your car. A huge time saver! :)

Thank you so much for choosing our property, and we look forward to welcoming you back very soon!

From checking in to checking out the whole experience was great. The front desk staff are friendly and have a sense of humour. You can tell they actually care about the quality of your stay and not just doing their jobs. The rooms have high ceilings with brand new materials throughout. Pool and gym are great. Breakfast in the morning is also better than others I have seen.

Room Tip: Ask for the Tower.

I travel over 200 days per year all over the world and to this day I have never experienced a better customer service than the one a always receive at the kelowna holiday inn. From day one the staff have been outstanding . I would like to single out one employee in particular (Barb) at the front counter. She alway goes above and beyond in order to ensure our is the best experience. It's is people like Barb that keep myself and my employees coming back to the kelowna holiday inn. Her friendly demeanour, kindly attitude and being a great problem solver makes her the best front counter employee I have ever encounter. Last two year, myself and my employees have stayed there over 100 nights all together.

We booked this venue to host our workshop and found it to be an excellent choice. The front desk staff were friendly and professional. The catering staff were also excellent in their service and the food, especially the tiramasu dessert was great. The room was spacious, clean and provided us with the setup that we requested. We will definately book this conference space in the future.

Nice hotel. New wing that has great suites. Got a $60 upgrade to a full suite with Kitchen, 2 queen beds and a hideabed. Only complaint was that there wasn't any dishes in the kitchen?!? Plates at least would have been nice.

Thank you for your review of our property!

We are happy to hear that you enjoyed our suite while staying with us. I have made a note to present in our next Rooms Division Meeting that we should put some real plates and chinaware into the suites in our tower. I thought that this was a great suggestion! Thank you!

If you've stayed at a Holiday Inn Express before this will be a typical experience. The staff were all extremely friendly and helpful. They even let us store our son's Mountain Bike in the manager's office.

We stayed over the September long weekend and maybe it was because of this, but the breakfast room for every one of our 3 mornings was a GONG SHOW. Line up of 20+ people, no free tables, people eating in the lobby, outside, etc. I would suggest they either increase their hours or expand their seating area.

There also seemed to be an issue with the air circulation in the building. Even though evening temperatures in Kelowna went down to 5C, the air conditioner kicked in and out all night (could they not just circulate fresh outdoor air into the building?) which did make it annoying for sleeping.

Dear Guest (mojafor),

Thank you for sharing your experience with us!

I am so happy to hear that you found our staff friendly and helpful! I am very lucky to work with them each day! I am also happy that we were able to accommodate storing your son's bike for you!

I would like to apologize about the issues you had getting in for breakfast and the issues with your heating and cooling system. I have made note to review your suggestions when we approach our higher volume days in the summer/fall in regards to the hours of the breakfast bar. It was a great suggestion!

We have a preventative maintenance program at the Hotel where we check the Guestrooms for things that are not working quite right, I have asked maintenance if they can also check the HVAC units while they are in doing their normal checks.

Once again, thank you so much for bringing these concerns forward so that we may address them and so that they will not be an issue for future Guests. We look forward to the opportunity to welcome you back to the Hotel.

Went to Kelowna for a girls weekend for sun and wine tour. Our room was located on the first floor and unfortunately it did not have much sunlight. I recommend staying on a different floor. Breakfast buffet was included in the price which got really busy, I would of woken up a bit earlier to beat the rush of people so we could of gotten a table and seats. All in all, Holiday Inn Express was in a good location and price was reasonable. I would recommend it to others and stay there again.

Room Tip: Avoid the 1st floor rooms because the windows are small and do not let in much sunlight.
