Coast Kamloops Hotel & Conference Centre
Good for overnight
We stopped on our drive from Vancouver to Calgary. Check in was easy, room was clean. The pool area was running out of towels and there was a current in the pool that didn’t allow you to easily sit in one place or swim around. The hot tub gets really crowded and the entire atrium can be loud. My older son went to the gym and it was just a tiny room with a few machines and tv. Tried to order room service 20 minutes before closing and they had some trouble with this request – ended up ordering and there was an error but the kind manager resolved it all. We’d stay again for overnight, but nothing special.
Great nights sleep
We stayed in a room with a view of the valley and it was lovely! Great bed, large and quiet room, plus lots of towels and free internet.
We had a glass of wine and some appies on the deck in the bar with good service and good food.
We would definitely stay there again.

Booked into this hotel for 2 nights, received a standard king size room, hallway smelt like mold and mildew – upgraded to a suite (thankfully they reduced the rate). Dined in their restaurant – what a disaster that was. Ordered cocktails (don’t – they have no idea how to make them), appies and entres. We waited 20+ minutes for the appies to arrive (ok but nothing spectacular) and when we finished them, our waitress asked if we’re done (meaning finished our whole meal). We then asked where our entres were and she forgot to put them into the computer. So then waited another 15+ minutes for that and the items were tasteless and the chicken dry. Considering we were the 4th couple in the whole restaurant when we got there and the “only” couple when we left, the service was atrocious and non existent – unbelievable. When walking down the hallways to the main foyer from our room, every day there were dishes constantly left by other customers in front of their doors but it seemed the hotel staff never picked them up – we had to call the front desk in the evening to tell them the dishes we saw from the morning were still outside the doors and considering their staff clean the rooms in the morning – you would think they would pick up these dishes at that time. As for our room – we realized the 2nd day in that our air conditioner wasn’t working properly – was hot and even though we tried to reset it ourselves (as there were no instructions anywhere in the room as to how to work it) had to call someone to come up to reset it. Was told that the air conditioner defaults to 73 degrees after 12 hours which is ridiculous considering if someone is staying in a specific room for 2 to 3 days in a row in those hot summer days, why would anyone want it to default back to 73 degrees and then not know it does that unless of course they would mention this when you check in (which they didn’t). Although our room itself was clean and the beds were comfy – overall would not stay here again unfortunately due to too many things that lacked attention and detail.

Pleasant Overnight on our Rocky Mountaineer Journey
We were very pleased with our stopover in Kamloops,BC en route from Vancouver to Jasper on the Rocky Mountaineer scenic railway. Hotels were assigned according to class of service and transport for ourselves and our luggage was included in the trip. The train pulled in at a convenient 5pm and we were welcomed by Canadian Mounties as we left the station. Check-in was a breeze. With preregistration, we went straight to our room to freshen up and study our dinner options. My husband wanted to eat at MamaSan’s for Asian, while I preferred the fresh Canadian fare at Preston’s. We were delighted to find that these were actually two different menus in one single venue! Service was pleasant and food was good. We slept well, and were delighted to exit the hotel with no need to check out or drag our luggage. All taken care of by Rocky Mountaineer. A good stay, a great trainride, and excellent arragements by Fresh Tracks Canada.
A lovely surprise!
We were travelling on the Rocky Mountaineer from Vancouver to Jasper with a one night stopover in Kamloops. We had no idea where we would be staying but were greatly impressed with their choice of accommodation. The hotel reception was very smart and staff were very welcoming. The bedroom was large and the bed was very comfortable. The hotel is close to the the shopping mall and there is a free shuttle that takes you to the town, where during summer months there are bands to listen to in the park free of charge. The indoor pool area looked very nice and although we did not eat in the restaurant it smelt very good! We would certainly recommend this restaurant for anyone staying in Kamloops.
