Recent guest reviews

Kamloops has lots of hotels and I have stayed at many over the years. I decided to stay at the Howard Johnson Inn this time and have to admit the hotel is well kept and very well managed. Lobby and breakfast room seemed recently renovated. Rooms was clean and bathroom was updated. Great location in downtown and free parking is appreciated.

Good value for budget pricing. Within walking distance of downtown and the hospital. Enhanced selection on the breakfast menu. Restaurants close by. No elevator to the second floor.

I just spent two nights at the Howard Johnson inn Kamloops and it was the best budget motel I have ever stayed at. The price was very reasonable and room was in very good condition. I think the breakfast was acceptable and food items seemed fresh. The location was super convenient and we were able to walk to walk to the hospital. Denny’s restaurant next-door is bonus.

The old blankets with cigarette burns were gross. The towels were nice and new fixtures in the bathroom. Burn mark in the shape of an iron on the floor. No plug in for cell phone by the bed, and when I looked for one behind the nightstand, the filth was revolting. Did not remove my shoes, except while in the shower.

the room was not clean , but its OK. but at our room Shower was not hot, I mean water in the bathroom not become to hot water. so we could not take a shower at all.

Only good thing was the bed it was comfortable. The rest was very bad! Shower only worked on the center hard pulsating jet. Towels were old and stained! Molding around inside of room door on one side missing.Possibly ripped off when door kicked in? Air conditioning unit did not fit space so there was a constant draft from it and it was not summer time.No carpets and linoleum floor very dirty. Handle on night table drawer missing so could not open it. Very old TV. The Hotel needs a complete Overhaul. Oh yes the WiFi was good.

We traveled to Kamloops for a memorial service. We were able get three rooms in close proximity so the four family members were able to meet and visit. The Denny's restaurant a few meters away makes this an ideal location to lodge.

My family stayed here while a family member was in the hospital the rooms were clean and comfortable. The breakfast room was clean and stocked. I liked that the hard boiled eggs were kept hot in a crockpot...great idea. The Youngman at the front desk (Sahil) was super friendly and very helpful. Awesome person! Very good hospital rate too.

First night stay was amazing, good sleep. However over the next few nights stay, had neighbours that will smoke right outside my window though it says "No smoking." Lots of load noises from others in the motel. Very noisy. Still good however for the price.

stay there for few day before heading to rockies. Check in was good and working man was very knowledgeable. gave us plenty of suggestion for dinner and lunch. He recommended live music which they have at the park. It lovely park in downtown. Breakfast was great. Did not expect to have self made waffle and eggs. Room was clean and bed were very comfortable.
