Coast Kamloops Hotel & Conference Centre
Well-appointed room, friendly staff, clean pool and hot tub.
Did not try the on-site restaurant but lots of popular choices nearby.
Free parking and a view back towards the lights of the city
Would definitely stay here next time in Kamloops.
Rocky Mountaineer Stopover
As the title indicates, we overnighted at this hotel in Kamloops as part of the Rocky Mountaineer journey from Vancouver to Jasper.
My first impression was that Kamloops is much, much larger than I anticipated. My second impression was that Kamloops benefits greatly from overnight stops by the Rocky Mountaineer (I thought as we passed by Rocky Mountaineer workshops and sidings, and as mounted greeters waved the train in).
This hotel was a little out of town as compared to the train station, but that’s not a bother. It benefits from an elevated position and being away from the trains running at night.
Check in and check out were non-existant, as this was all handled by the efficient Rocky Mountaineer staff. We knew our room number and bus number before we got off the train, and our luggage was waiting for us in our room when we arrived.
The rooms at the Coast Kamloops are very good – very large, 2 queen beds, a large bathroom, free wifi and a flat screen TV.
Unfortunately, we only stayed here for about 12 hours or so, and can’t even comment on breakfast, as that was provided on the train. But the room was nice and I assume that the rest of the hotel matched.
I note adverse comments on TripAdvisor about the Rocky Mountaineer’s choice of accommodation in Kamloops, and particularly about noisy trains. Such comments do not seem to apply to the Coast Kamloops, which is a long way away from the train tracks, and we heard no disturbing noises.
A good choice of hotel in Kamloops.
A stop on the way to Banff
We stopped at the hotel on the way to Banff and therefore were there only one night. Our room was on the ground floor and opened onto the pool. There was a bit of noise from the kids (and adults) from the pool but the volume switch on the TV drowned that out.
The rooms were a good size and the service was very good. However, they were having trouble with the Wifi and that was dead.
We tried to get a meal in the restaurant attached (Prestons), but no luck – so we ordered room service which was quite good. Our room had no view (except internally to the pool) so we cannot comment on the view, but as the hotel is positioned on a hill overlooking the town/city, the views should have been good.
Just average, and would investigate other hotels when next in Kamloops.
Had a nice stay here
This hotel was a fair price for the quality of room we received. Ours did not have a balcony, but did have a great view of the mountains and the city. Bed was comfortable, room was clean, and the décor was nice. Lots of parking. Will make this our hotel of choice for our trips into Kamloops, we were very satisfied.

Nice place to stay
Nice place to stay at the top of the hill in Kamloops. Rooms are quite spacious and my room had the two queens with a balcony overlooking the pool. Bed was comfortable and room was clean except for long hairs left on one towel and on bathroom floor. Not a big deal but housekeeping should take one last look. Pol and hot tub were clean and relaxing.
Room is a little noisy on the pool side when kids playing but not unbearable. I really enjoy the i_pod docks in the room so you can wake up to your own music or to listen to your own music during the evening. More hotels should have these.
I was here for a conference and food was provided by hotel and was very good. Conference rooms were spacious and clean. There is a bar right across the street with some good food as well and a McDonalds and Tims just a few blocks west for coffee in the morning.
I had a problem with my room key twice. It didn’t work and while staff re keyed it and it worked fine, was a bit annoying especially coming back from pool.
Overall for the price the company paid…I think it was $109 a night not a bad place to stay just off of main highway.
