For the most part, this place was an okay place to stay that doesn't break the bank. It's best for those who are travelling solo and doesn't want to spend too much for lodging. Also close to the airport for quick business travel. They have options available for more than one person. For a single room, you get barebone basics with a single bed and shared bathroom. Wasn't an issue with a shared bathroom as they weren't many guests around, and nobody was next door. Only issues that I had was the shower head doesn't spray well, and the water was a little merky. Maybe construction at the time on site played a part, but tolerable. Just temper you're expectations that this is a dorm room with a common kitchen/TV area, and an extremely basic room. One tip is to remember your door code to access the building, and lock the deadbolt since you get a key. Nothing happened to me personally, but something to keep in mind for this review. Was perfect for my vacation as I needed a longer holiday, and this was worth saving a little bit of money on for other things.
The campus did a great job at signage for where you need to go to check-in, and provide short term parking when you check-in. Then they direct where you need to park and where you're room is. It was $4/day for parking with in and out privileges when I stayed. They sell you a parking pass for convenience when you check-in. Get a nice view of the valley, but still need some transportation (car or transit) to get into the heart of the city for any activities. It's a BC approved accomodation. By car, it's about a 10 minute drive to head to the city park and downtown to experience the heart of Kelowna.
