Positive Reviews


Very convenient location

Going through the reviews, it seems that some guests were using the motel simply for a place to crash while on a road trip, and a more or less equal number were using it when visiting Kamloops itself. Both groups seemed pretty happy with the location, with the road trippers liking the easy access off the highway, and the others saying that it was easy to access Kamloops and the other places they needed to visit.


Staff were helpful all round

The overwhelming majority of guests felt that the motel's staff were very friendly and helpful. The owner/manager was said to be especially helpful, and hands-on, not simply delegating customer service to his employees.


Microwave and fridge

Many guests mentioned that they had a microwave and small fridge in their room. They were clearly very happy to have these two amenities, since they allowed them to enjoy their own snacks and drinks in the comfort and privacy of their room.

Negative Reviews


Close to the railway tracks

A number of guests mentioned that the motel is not only close to the highway, but the train the railway tracks. They reported that many trains pass through at night, and that their whistles often disturbed their sleep.


Pillows a little uncomfortable

Quite a number of guests seemed to have had a problem with the pillows in their room, saying that they were not the most comfortable they had ever used.


Smell from the pulp mill

Some guests complained of an unpleasant smell that seemed to hang in the air, with the nearby pulp mill tending to get the blame.
