Editor's Analysis
Updated on Aug 24, 2012
Overview
Canada's Best Value Inn is located just south of the Trans-Canada Highway, making it popular with car travellers looking for a single-night stay along this major route between Vancouver and the Rockies. The hotel's proximity to the Kamloops Convention Centre also makes it a popular choice for business travellers.

This hotel has 37 guest rooms, all of which offer free Wi-Fi, cable TV, air conditioning, a mini-fridge, a coffeemaker, a hair dryer, and an iron & ironing board. Newly renovated rooms also include a jacuzzi tub and a microwave (all room renovations are scheduled to be completed by October 2012). Additional hotel amenities include an outdoor pool and business services. Parking is free, and accessible rooms are available. Pet-friendly rooms are also available for small pets, charges may apply and fluctuate depending on the season.


Canada's Best Value Inn Kamloops is a 7-minute drive south of Thompson Rivers University, Tournament Capital Centre, and Hillside Stadium. Aberdeen Mall and Cineplex is roughly a 12-minute walk from the hotel, and additional shopping can be found at Columbia Place Shopping Centre (approximately 5 minutes driving time).

Dining can be found nearby at Ric's Grill Steak Seafood and Chop House, Vittorio's Italian Restaurant, and ABC Country Restaurant (all within a 2-minute walk of the hotel). (All distances and travel time estimates: Google Maps.)

Verified with a front desk agent: Free Wi-Fi, free parking, pet-friendly rooms for small pets only, additional charges fluctuate seasonally, ongoing room renovations to be completed by October 2012 (call date: August 19th, 2012).

The Good
The majority of reviews consulted for this analysis were positive, with much praise going to the hotel's location, renovated rooms, and value.

Most guests were pleased with the hotel's location. The location was described by these reviewers as having easy access to the highway and being close to several restaurants and the Aberdeen Mall. The view of the surrounding landscape from the hotel was also complimented by a few.

The hotel's rooms were characterized by many reviewers as quiet and clean. Several guests had positive experiences in their "newly renovated" rooms, and described updated amenities such as jacuzzis, microwaves, large flat-screen TVs, and modern furniture.

Some lodgers were pleased with the value they received for the money spent. One guest described the hotel as "fantastic value for the budget-conscious traveller".

The Bad
While most of the reviews consulted for this analysis were positive, a few common complaints among them were the hotel's pool size, outdated rooms, and breakfast selection.

Some guests were disappointed by the outdoor pool at the hotel. They pointed out that the photos of the pool provided on the hotel's website were misleading, and that the pool was much smaller in comparison to the pictures.

Some reviewers described their rooms as having a rundown look and included examples such as worn towels and old carpet. However, most of these same reviewers noted the hotel was under renovation at the time of their stay. Management has stated that room renovations are to be completed by October 2012.

The continental breakfast was described by a few lodgers as being short on selection; it was mentioned that it didn't include as many items in comparison to other hotels' free breakfasts. However, most guests who mentioned the breakfast were generally satisfied with it.
Booking.com guest reviews rated the hotel 8.1 out of 10 from 56 reviews.

TripAdvisor.com

"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!"
