Kelowna has some nice hotels to choose from that are a short drive from the hospital. I looked for hotels that seem to provide the best value based upon the range of amenities offered while comparing the room price. 


Of all the hotels listed on this page, The Royal Anne Hotel and the Accent Inn Kelowna stood out to me as places that I myself would choose to stay at if I were headed to the Kelowna hospital.

Another big factor in choosing hotels nowadays has to do with online guest ratings. This reveals to prospective guests how the hotel performs in terms of service and upkeep. Did guests have a peaceful and happy experience there?

Again these two hotels stood out as high achievers while offering an affordable room price.

Popular downtown Kelowna hotel near the lake, well-liked for value, staff & free breakfast
Pros
  • Free amenities: Wi-Fi, breakfast, parking, local calls

  • Many guests enjoyed the free breakfast

  • Several guests were impressed with the value they received

I think the Royal Anne Hotel is a good hotel choice if you need to access the Kelowna General Hospital. It's located only 4 minutes away by car or cab. Guests say that the staff are extremely friendly and helpful which is an important factor when you need extra consideration and support. The hotel is smoke free and the rooms are clean and comfortable with mini-fridges in each room. 

There's a well liked breakfast plus a restaurant across the parking lot (O'Flannigans Pub & Deli is open for lunch and dinner), so if you need some nourishment, you won't have to go far to get it. Guests consider this hotel a good value and I have to agree with reasonable room rates and included freebies of breakfast, parking, Wi-Fi and local calls.

The Accent Inn is another good choice for guests visiting the hospital in Kelowna. It's an easy drive to the hospital from this hotel, only 5 minutes. Parking is free at the hotel, so that will help to save on costs. The room rates are slightly lower than the Royal Anne, but there's no free breakfast. ABC Restaurant is located next door which will likely be convenient for getting some breakfast, meal or snack.

Guests like the spacious rooms at this hotel and said the beds were comfortable with nice bedding and the rooms were clean. It's also a smoke-free hotel which should make things more comfortable. Guest reviewers advised getting a room at the back of the hotel as traffic noise can be an issue for some guests. Guests highly recommended this hotel and seemed to enjoy its value. Wi-Fi and local calls are also free to guests.
