We have stayed at this hotel multiple times and it is our kids first pick. We arrived early for check in last weekend and they were able to accommodate us with no hesitation. Every time we are there, the front desk staff are so cheerful and helpful. Also, they ended up upgrading us to a suite due to overbooking (this...

Indeed, this is basic but different at the same time. It's clean and funky, as the hotel team strives to provide great service and bring its personal touch to every aspect of the life on these premises. Your kids will enjoy the pool, the Zedinator (water slide) and the skateboard rental; you, parents, will be pleasantly surprised by the well...

Hello Funnymimi, Thank you so much for the fantastic review! It sounds like you had a blast while staying at Zed and you got to take advantage of the many free amenities Zed has to offer. The Highland Games are fantastic and Hotel Zed being a block away doesn't hurt! Thank you again for staying with us and we look...

The Zed is cheerily painted. It's more of a motel with a hotel - no bar, no room service, and the onsite restaurant (not part of the hotel) keeps odd hours but serves good food. Free coffee in reception was much appreciated and the little shuttle bus to downtown was great, really fun and so helpful. It's needed, because the...

This hotel is unique for sure. The highlights- free shuttle service to the downtown or harbour area in the VW bus. located right infront of a mall, dollarama, and quite a few places to eat has a great restaurant in the lobby building, very popular with the locals and tourists has a water slide and pool (small area but cute)...

Sitting in our room, wondering who's talking outside and then realizing it's "welcome to KFC, can we take your order?" was the beginning of our trip! However, when your night's sleep is so painful that you both wake up in pain and decide that the balance of your money spent means less to you than your health and just pack...

not very clean. check bedding carefully, and if soiled, report to office and check out. Noisy hotel, with paper thin walls. Best to stay in an inner harbour or downtown hotel. Would never stay here again.

What a cute little gem in downtown Kelowna. My husband and I stayed here when we were in town for a concert and anniversary. The room was cute and cozy. The staff were very friendly and helpful. The roof top patio is a great addition for relaxing on a summer night. The colors are fresh and fun. Perfect location within...

I don't know where to start! Everything here was such a unique, wonderful experience! Dana at the front desk was a joy and full of tips for things to do around the city!

With most reviews I pretty much think a place is great, or not great. This is the exception. The funky decor is the big attraction with this place. Bright colors, rotary dial phones and so on. But the room was way too small and the stairs to climb up to our floor were metal (rainy city) and this day had...

Our kids FLIPPED over this hotel! It was an incredible experience with upscale vintage touches at every turn. Typewriters, record players- phones with cords! Incredibly fun water slide and indoor pool. The highlight was the free VW van shuttles, by far. We highly recommend this gem for a super fun trip! Your teen/tween will love you!
