Hampton Inn by Hilton Kamloops
Travel Blogs from Kamloops
Just a quick stop on our way to Banff and Lake Louise. Nice city with beautiful views of the mountains. As we left Seattle this morning, we passed by some incredible mountains and forests. Then the terrain began to change with more wheat fields and rolling hills. Everyone we have met said that Banff is incredible so we are looking forward to reaching our destination tomorrow.
Day 129 and Day 130 - We remain in Prince George getting caught up on chores and just kind of resting up from our whirlwind tour of 60 days and over 5,700 miles. Our tail gunners were finally able to leave Anchorage, where Bill had to have surgery on his eye for a detached retina and they were trying very hard to get from Anchorage to Prince George to say good bye to everyone, but they just couldn't do it. So, we decided to wait so that they wouldn't feel so bad. ...
Stppped off on the way at a spot where you can see salmon flinging themselves up a waterfall. It was amazing and kind of physics defying to see one pop up every couple of minutes. In car park afterwards I accidentally drop the laptop, (for the record it was only a couple of inches and it was in it's case) and manage to chip the corner. Cue the first big argument of the ...
Roger's birthday today!
We are now back on the train, heading for Vancouver. The journey takes us past Kamloops Lake, which seems to go on for ever! We see smoke coming from tall chimneys up on the mountainsides, which Jill tells us is the smoke from the pulp mills. They send the smoke up away from the town so as to avoid pollution - good idea.
it is difficult for people to access Kamloops Lake, as there is one railway on one side and one on ...
It's a sad day, but after 12 days in Sun Peaks, it is time to go. Sun Peaks was the highlight of our trip for lots reasons. I have asked Stacey and Gemma to list their top three reasons. Stacey 1. Snow 2. Skiing 3. Dog Sledding Gemma 1. Dog Sledding 2. Skiing 3. Ice Hockey From Andrea and my perspective, we loved the fact that we learnt to ski, had a home base for 12 days and got to spend the time with the family. It was great ...

TravelPod Member ReviewsHampton Inn by Hilton Kamloops
I would definitely recommend this hotel. It looks like the hotel has been recently rennovated. Beds and linens are very comfortable. The rooms are very clean and the people are very nice.

Historical Traveler Reviews Hampton Inn by Hilton Kamloops
Second time staying here. Nice hotel and nice rooms. Staff friendly. Breakfast good. Pool is nice but slide was out of order (two years in a row). I would recommend.
Excellent - recommended
My husband and I stayed at the Hampton Inn on April 29, 2006, on our way to Jasper from Vancouver. We had never stayed at a Hampton Inn before, but I was very happy with this hotel.
We had a King-sized bed in a room on the third floor overlooking the parking lot and the highway. It was clean, large, and renovated. The free breakfast in the morning was excellent - there were the usual muffins, cereals, bagels, toast, coffee and tea, but also cooked sausages and eggs that you could place on english muffins to make your own "McMuffin". There was also yogurt and hot chocolate and they even included paper cups with lids, so that you could take a coffee to go.
I would not hesitate to stay here again for work or pleasure.
I was amazed and happy to find that my opinion of this hotel matched the comments of other Trip Advisor commentors.
Would recommend it.
We stayed here in early July 2005 and found it to be very clean with very friendly staff. Our children enjoyed the pool. The only down side was no restaurant within the hotel and our room faced a rock wall, so the view was nonexistent. We would stay here again.
Good deal for a chain hotel
What you see is what you get - this Hampton Inn is a positive surprise to the typical chain hotel ambiance and style just because the rooms are so spacious and large. The rest of it is pretty much standard for this chain and the complimentary breakfast not worth a try. But if you need a very comfortable bed for the night, free internet and a big bathroom - you'll get it all at Hampton Inn at an adequate price. Good restaurants are nearby, just in case.
Always impressed with Hampton Inn
As a rule of thumb, my husband and I will always stay at a Hampton Inn whenever possible. We have never been disppointed by this decision and the Hampton Inn in Kamloops was no exception to this! I would definately stay again when in Kamloops. The beds were comfortable, the room was exceptionally clean, the breakfast was just perfect and the price was right. I do not hesitate to highly recommend staying at the Hampton Inn in Kamloops!
Good place to stay
Our group of 8 stayed here as a package of a train tour. Like the other Hampton Inns that I have stayed, the place is clean, quiet, and reasonably spacious. Both indoor pool and spa were a bit cold, however. The large breakfast room features a variety of food, including fresh fruit and protein, which acommodates our diabetic members. From the hotel, we could walk down the hill to Ric's Bar and Grill, which served one of the best meals I had in Canada.
We have just stayed with our kids at the Hampton Inn, Kamloops on our way to Banff and were pleasantly surprised by this hotel. We are used to staying at 4 and 5 star hotels in big cities and this hotel rated just as high as some of the hotels we have stayed in. The reception staff were extremely friendly and helpful. The rooms were very quiet, tastefully decorated and with free free high speed internet access. The bathroom was very stylish with great aminities. Breakfast was included and for a "free buffet breakfast" is was excellent. Fresh bread, pastries, fruit and hot dish. The kids enjoyed having a swim when we arrived. A shame the new waterslide wasn't open yet. We will definately return to this hotel whenever we will travel through Kamloops.
Great value in sunny Kamloops
My husband, my mother and I stayed at the new Hampton Inn while on a road trip through BC recently. It was one of the very best hotels we encountered during our vacation. Immaculately clean, it offered every amenity that we wanted. The interior design of both the public and private areas was stylish and the complimentary breakfast fresh and plentiful. We were impressed by this hotel and will stay in it again whenever we visit Kamloops.
Complimentary Internet Use
As a frequent business traveler, its a joy to find a hotel like the Kamloops Hampton Inn. Its the newest hotel in town, completed in 2003. The large lobby is friendly and inviting. The rooms are tastefully decorated in earth tones with comfortable beds and high-speed internet connections. For those who dont travel with a computer, theres a complimentary computer with internet connection in a private kiosk in the lobby. Breakfast is included and its a lovely selection of cereals, muffins, toast, pastries, fruit, and drinks.
