The Good
Guests who reviewed this hotel had a lot of good things to say about it. They were very pleased with the good value they found here, the clean and comfortable rooms with modern amenities and the convenient location.

They felt treated well by the owner and his staff, who were often mentioned by name in the reviews. Gentle and pleasant, he demonstrated genuine interest in his guests and their comfort. Many a guest reviewer felt cared for with personal attention and consideration.

Value for the dollar was a well-repeated theme in the reviews. Guests were often surprised at the quality of the amenities and rooms, for the price being charged. One guest also obtained a discount voucher for a nearby restaurant from the hotel. Freebies added to the value and included good Wi-Fi, a basic but sufficient continental breakfast, and free outdoor parking which guests were thankful for.

Guests judged the rooms to be clean, quiet and comfortable. Many were pleased to find a double queen and even a triple queen bed room, double jacuzzis, mini-fridges, microwaves and even full kitchens in the rooms. The views of the surrounding hills were also appreciated and some reviewers spoke about their comfortable beds as well.
The Bad
Complaints about the hotel were infrequent in the reviews read for this report, and were not typically representative of the overall sentiment of the guests who reviewed, but seemed more like one-time disturbances. However, a couple of common quibbles surfaced in the reviews.

Occasionally a guest would say the room they were given was small and slightly outdated in its decor or that the building was older.

Although many reviews spoke well of the free breakfast, some guests felt the selection was too limited.

"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."
