Updated Aug 26, 2012
Overview
Located just west of Hwy 5, the Travelodge Mountview Kamloops is situated near the Tournament Capital Centre and Thompson Rivers University. Because the hotel provides extended-stay amenities like kitchenettes, it's popular with those requiring longer stays or wanting to cook for themselves.

This hotel has 53 newly-renovated (as of August 2012) guest rooms and suites on 3 floors, all of which offer free Wi-Fi, satellite TV, air conditioning, a mini-fridge, a microwave, a coffeemaker, and a hair dryer. Suites with added amenities such as kitchenettes, desks and hot tubs are also available. Accessible rooms are available upon request, and the hotel offers an outdoor pool, an indoor hot tub and business facilities. Parking is complimentary, and children 17 and under stay free. Pets are not allowed.

The hotel offers a free continental breakfast to all guests, and additional dining options within a 4-minute walk include Vittorio's Italian Restaurant, ABC Country Restaurant, and Ric's Grill Steakhouse.

The Travelodge Mountview Kamloops is within a 7-minute drive of Tournament Capital Centre, Hillside Stadium and Thompson Rivers University. Kamloops' city centre is a 10-minute drive away, and shopping can be found at the nearby Aberdeen Mall and Cineplex (roughly five minutes' driving time). (All distances and travel time estimates: Google Maps)

The Bad
Negative reviews found for this analysis mentioned the hotel's breakfast and outdated rooms. Please note that while many of the reviews used for this analysis were negative, they've generally been more positive since the hotel began undergoing renovations in 2012. 

Some guests were disappointed with the continental breakfast included in the cost of their rooms. These guests found the selection and variety of breakfast items to be inadequate, however, more patrons found the breakfast to be satisfactory than those who didn't. A few guests also found the breakfast room itself to be unmonitored and complained that items were not refreshed in a timely fashion.

Some reviewers described their rooms as having rundown amenities and outdated decor. It should be noted, however, that the hotel has completed renovations as of August 2012.

"Staff was friendly and helpful, but we initially were placed in a heavily deodorized obviously smoked in room (we had three little kids along). We said that was not acceptable and they upgraded and switched our rooms and gave us a good deal on top of it, but then we found out that the pool was out of order and the hot tub was not working either. When we went for breakfast(included) in the morning, the lady was not friendly and the food was scarce. We were lucky to have bagels! No muffins, no boiled eggs, no yogurt, the only fruit was apples. Very disappointing, as one of the big reasons we reserved here was because it had breakfast included. We ended up defecting to the neighboring hotel that had a well maintained pool, hot tub, water slide and an awesome full breakfast that satisfied everyone. (Price was the same, though the room not as big....) I don't want to downplay the help from the staff of this hotel though. They were excellent, and if the hotel and amenities matched their attitude, it would have been a first rate place and we would not have moved at all."

"The only issue we had was with cigarette smoke originating in the bathroom. Somehow it got into our room and was a problem, because my wife is extremely allergic to it. We had to keep the bathroom fan running which was really noisy (bearings?)in order to ensure that the smoke wouldn't permeate the room. It must have been coming from a room through the ventillation system somehow."
