It is slightly removed from the Trans Canada Highway so may be a little quieter than other places. Probably it has been some time that any real renovations and painting has been done. The room was a little smaller than other regular motel rooms. Check in was friendly. The rate was the lowest of any Kamloops motels (using the usual... More

Stayed at the motel o our way to Vancouver. We checked in a little later at night. Staff was friendly and quick to check us in. The room was good for the price clean and a firm bed. They accepted pets and the room we stayed in was well set up for dogs. Good value for the money.

Cheapest place In Kamloops I think. Did the trick for a quick 6 hour sleep. The air conditioner was very noisy and so were the neighbours. The shower pressure was good. Decor is very minimal and dated, but who cares. It's a roadside truck stop.

Although the motel room was renovated - laminate flooring, upgraded kitchenette and bathroom - the A/C unit was moldy and dusty, the windows were equally as gross and bedding needs to be higher quality at nearly $100/night. Seems a bit pricy for a stopover motel, but it was next to the highway and close to a Tim Horton's, so it... More
