My Fiance and me stayed here at the end of September. After a 8 hour car journey while I was 3 months pregnant we arrived and found a dead bug and blood on one of the pillows in our room. We were so tired that we didnt even realise what it was and just went to sleep. The next morning...

We originally called to book the Howard Johnson next door, the agent said no need to book over the phone, they had lots of rooms available, just come down. So we did, went into the Howard Johnson and rang the bell. An employee appeared and said that the "Howard Johnson was full, but the motel next door was the same...

Me and my wife came to visit Kamloops as a last minute compromise as our budget wouldn't allow Kelowna and we must say we were very happy during our two nights three days in the city. It ended up being a very relaxing stay but in regards to the hotel I have to give credit for the great price, the...

This hotel is obviously an older run down hotel however it could still get good ratings if they had any clue how to run a motel. We needed towels and they said they didn't have any, shortly after that housekeeping came around and gathered all the towels and said they would return them as soon as they were cleaned This...

This motel was simply a place to sleep, but was lacking in many areas. No one was ever at the front desk. The four times we required assistance, we needed to ring the bell multiple times and wait for someone to come. The phone in the room did not work, and although they replaced it, it meant that we had...

Not as advertised.No breakfast. No one available to provide wifi password until the next day, TV broken, air conditioner broken, fridge seal broken so door did not close. Very hot in the room. When I went to the desk to inquire about getting towels and toilet paper (none provided) no one was there, no one answered my repeated ringing of...

Broken air conditioner, so loud it was impossible to sleep. And it's HOT here. Broken TV. Dirty furniture. No towels. No toilet paper. No "free breakfast" as advertised on Booking.com No one at the front desk to get wifi password from. Yes, it was cheap. But this place was yuck.

I'm particularly fond of these little motels, they tend to reek of character. This one did not disappoint. the room was clean, the beds were comfy and there was a fridge and microwave. it was a little bit of a wait getting attention at the front desk but it looked like they were working both properties so understandably they were...

We have stayed at the fountain before as they are centrally located and cheap! We stayed 4 nights this trip. Parking is tight! Great location to hospital. Our room was clean although rooms are not cleaned or made up daily. You need to ask for but to be made up or for clean towels. Some of the clientele look like...

WHAT EVER YOU DO, DO NOT STAY HERE..The place smells is dirty and they tried to con us, originally we were booked in next door at the Howard Johnson but on arrival the young chap told us that our room had a flood and he booked us into the dreaded Fountain next door, also he wanted our credit card as...
