Good location, good value, but concerns over pool size and breakfast selection

- Some guests found the hotel's pool photos misleading
- A few guests in unrenovated rooms described their rooms as rundown (renovations are scheduled to be completed by October 2012)

"Good value for your dollar"
"The room was clean and adequate for my overnight stay. They were renovating and so there were minor inconveniences. The hotel is within walking distance to restaurants and a short drive to shopping areas. I would like it if they would include teabags, not just coffee in the rooms but I like that it had a small fridge."

"Good budget pick"
"I found this hotel on Canadian Hotel Guide, and it was accurate to the other reviews. There was a bit of stuff left on the floor from the last people, but the beds and bathroom were clean. It was pretty good. 3 of us just needed a cheap night just off the highway, and this served us well. There is a great pub not even a 5 min walk that is open late. The manager/cleaner/do-everything was very nice. There really is no continental breakfast, so don't plan on it. All it was was 4 muffins cut in quarters on a plate. There are other places to eat in Kamloops, so it worked out. Overall, if you're not terribly anal about things and just looking to sleep and continue on your journey, this place will do the trick!"

"A good place for an overnight stay."
"The bed was good which is important for a good nights sleep. A bit out of town but easy to get to and from the downtown area. Elevated position so a good view."

"i cancelled my stay at this hotel, the room was filthy with badly stained pillows (no pillow protectors on the pillows), the bathroom was also filthy and the room obviously had not been dusted for quite some time."
