Holiday Inn Express - Kamloops
Travel Blogs from Kamloops
Less wild weather today but more wildlife and nods to remember the fauna of BC.
It is easy to forget how naturally wild BC is and how closely wildlife and humans live together. In the UK we are used to seeing signs for deer at the roadside but the chances of coming across one when driving are, mercifully, quite rare when it is considered …
today we got our hire car and drove to kamloops. The drive to kamloops took 5 hours from vancouver but atleast the seats were cumpfy. I had subway for lunch, at the moment there is no snow in the rockies. unfotunately we couldnt go to hells gate because it was closed! tonight we are having pizza for tea wich makes up for the car trip if its good!
The rain did not go away, but at least disappeared occasionally enough for us to see most of the mountains we traversed today.
We stopped at Banff, a rich as can be mountain town along the lines of Vail, CO. Lots of wood and gingerbread and spectacular views from the streets and windows.
We passed through Glacier National Park, but could …
... as next summer (although less than five minutes from home and Kevan announced : "Bach' looks ridable right now!" I reminded him neither of us could stand the cold for more than 5 seconds.) The bike ride has been put off until next week when the weather is to warm to -1. But this trip, the mountain biking, the foreign culture, this is a trip we'll be talking about for a long time to come.
This bike trip would not have been what it was without our fellow ...
... I kept seeing big black shadows out of the corner of my eyes (that were of course nothing!!) so scary!! It is strange though that it was 11:30 and the sky was still a little bit light, because we are do far north! I find that very cool. It's not too cold for us yet, thank god, I can still go to bed in only one layer! We'll see how long that lasts in the rest of ...

Historical Traveler Reviews Holiday Inn Express - Kamloops
Maybe downtown is the better choice
We stayed at the Holiday Inn Kamloops for one night during our trip from Jasper N.P. to Vancouver. As we found out it isnt really necessary to stop there. If the weather conditions are good u can easily make the whole trip to Vancouver in one day using hwy 1. The Holiday Inn is situated on the outbound of Kamloops and not to easy to find among all the shops, gas stations and fast food restaurants especially when it gets dark. The hotel itself is quite new and offers good Holiday Inn standard with clean and spacy rooms. But as we had to drive downtown for dinner it seems that its a better choice to get a downtown room also.
Fabulous last-minute hotel!
The drive from Whistler to Banff was way-underestimated in terms of how long it would take so we stopped in Kamloops and booked a room... We were so very impressed not only with the room which had many lovely little touches, but also with the service! For the price, breakfast is included and also free internet access which was fabulous after paying exhorbitant prices elsewhere just to send email home... Definitely stop here if you are headed through the Rockies!!
We were lucky to get a really good rate at this hotel but even at the normal rate I would recommend it. Staff very friendly and rooms clean and quiet. Hotel is close to the highway making it a great stopping off point and we got a really good nights sleep. The free breakfast was worth having too.
Ideal Trans-Rockies staging post
A real gem ...and an ideal stop over for anyone crossing the Rockies. We spent one night here on the way over to Vancouver from Banff and another on the way back to Jasper.
Large well furnished rooms ... very clean. Usual Holiday Inn Express breakfast to see you on your way.
Great for an overnight stay
We stayed here for one night on July 19th and were very impressed.
Room was large and contained two Queen beds. Free coffee was available in the lobby, and there was a very good continental breakfast included in the price. You also get a free newspaper in the morning.
There is also a small pool on site, which I thought was good.
The hotel is very easy to find. I think it is the first exit when you approach Kamloops from Vancouver. The onsite restaurant did not appeal, however they are plenty of alternatives within driving distance of the hotel.
The staff were very helpful at all times.
Nice Hotel, big room with just the basics - just what we wanted for a one night stay. Not much to do in Kamloops though!
New and very good hotel
Stayed only one night in this fairly new hotel (mid June). Nice, spacious, clean room. Good location. It was quiet beside the fact that the hwy is nearby. Breakfast buffet good as always in Holiday Inn Express hotels. I am recommending this hotel as very, very good.
Stayed here for 1 night on 7th Oct 2004. A very nice hotel indeed! Our room was spacious & clean especially the bathroom & the service from the staff was excellent. They even called to see if we were happy. Another great HI Exp breakfast. The restaurant across the carpark was lovely if a little pricey. Overall, I would recommend this hotel & would stay here again.
Very nice place to stay
We only stayed at this hotel for one night and it was just fine. It is at a great location, just off the highway. There are a couple of places to eat nearby including the hotel on the property which was not bad. The hotel was very clean and the continental breakfast was very nice. Only complaint we had was that my husband thought the bed was just a little bit on the hard side. I thought it was fine. Very convenient especially if you are passing thru and need a room for just one night.
Stayed here for the second time and would stay here again if in the area. Very clean hotel, friendly staff, nice and spacious room. The indoor pool is large and well maintained. Breakfast ist very good. I even had a call shortly after i checked in, to ask me if everything in my room was OK. Never had this before at a holiday Inn. Not cheap, but worth it.
