Fantastic for what it is

I got into Kelowna around 8pm on Sunday 19-Jan and needed somewhere to stay for the night. The young man who served me was very friendly and was able to give me a ground floor room as I requested. The room itself wasn't flash but it was only $60 for the night!! How can anyone complain about that?! Would definitely come back and stay here again. Especially considering the price!

Close to UBC-O

I went up to visit my daughter and bring supplies from home. The room was close, updated, clean and comfortable. The outside appearance was lacking when I first pulled up, which gave me doubts. Once inside the manager was helpful and friendly and the room was an excellent value.

Room was reasonable but there is no elevator to second floor. If you have any large suit cases it is a hassle.

Reasonably Good Value

This was a clean comfortable place to stay. I was there three days and only had two problems. One was that there was supposed to be breakfast at 6 am and there was no one in the office at 6 am two mornings. On the other hand, they did serve me a late breakfast my first morning in because I arrived late. The agent doesn't tell you there is a $200 deposit required to stay there even if you pre-pay. This caused a problem when I arrived. It is on the bus route, close to restaurants and stores, and an easy bus ride to the lake and airport. Two of the girls that work there are smokin'.

Kelowna, BC Stay June 2012 was great

Very good except the TV had to be turned on/off at the TV and the remote would not control the volume. I would definitely stay here again.

Clean and friendly

Friendly staff. Clean facility. OwnershIp has made admirable effort to upgrade the room to make more modern and painted. Good for price. Can't comment on breakfast, left for early flight.

Do not book this hotel!!!!!!!!!!!!

This was the worst hotel I stayed im my whole life. I was passing by Kelowna and booked this hotel. My biggest mistake. The rooms stink, the person who checked us in tried to place us in a queen bed room when we paid for king size. The room wasn't clean at all!!!! The worst part is the Breakfast. Boxed orange juice, some supermarket cookies and supermarket muffins, and these were mouldy...... No tables, no chairs.... You are supposed to have the "Breakfast" standing beside the reception desk. When the guy realized we were not happy at all, he took 2 bananas from God knows where and gave to us..... My personal advice: STAY AWAY OF THIS PLACE!!!!!!

Good Hotel

At check-in we were met with a friendly welcome. The lobby was very small, but accomodating. We were assigned our room which was neat and comfortable. We needed to ask for the airconditioner to be turned on, but the management was prompt. Wireless was excellent. The room had the basics and the nights were quiet. Though the main toroughfare was just ourside, we didn't notice. A good stay!

don't expect more than a bed

It was a place to sleep while in Kelowna, and as long as that is all you expect you won't be too disappointed. They were obviously refurbishing the place as there were construction materials everywhere. Room was clean and it had a small older stove & a microwave. OK for guys weekend (cheap) but I wouldn't take my family there.
