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.

Headed up to Whistler and Blackcomb mountains this morning first via gondola then chairlift, incredible views. Up the very top there was still snow! So much fun. Elliahs got his first taste of snow Haha Then chairlift across between the peaks, and back down all the way to the bottom of the mountain. Jumped in the bus and off to Kamloops with a quick stop at Seton Lake. Kamloops - not much to tell, just a stopover on our way to Jasper tomorrow and not lots of time to ...

Followed a few hours of sharing jokes and taking shots of the scenery and of each other, everyone seemingly in a good mood, enjoying each other's company and the sun filled beauty surrounding us.

At lunchtime, we headed out of Kamloops heading for Wells Grey Park. We reached Clearwater relatively quickly, as the road was good. Eventually, after some wrong turns, we found the Visitor Centre to find out more about the area and, more importantly, to find out what the road was like ...
