We were back at the Holiday In Express Kelowna for another kids sports tournament. Very busy again but they were very good with the service and quality. Only advice I would suggest is having the water slide open longer hours. More than likely be back again next year.

We have always enjoyed good service and comfortable rooms at Holiday Inn Express Kelowna... Although we are seniors we enjoy the excellent pool and slides. Our most recent stay celebrating our granddaughter's birthday happened to be at the same time as a large tournament when the hotel was full. We were very impressed to find the breakfast nook ran as...

fairly standard holiday inn with good staff, nice pool for the kids, good location and a half decent free breakfast. Certainly nothing to write home about, but you know what you are getting and they appear responsive to problems when they occur.

I'm a busy parent, and every now and then, I check into the tower to refresh myself. The rooms are comfortable and I love the gourmet coffee and tea selection in the room. You can't beat the comfort of the beds, and the breakfasts are a real treat.

We chose this hotel for a few reasons: price, location, free breakfast, room having frig and microwave, and the pool/waterslide for the kids. The room was standard hotel size with standard amenities. Beds were comfortable. Wifi was a bit sluggish perhaps due to Olympic live streaming. Breakfast was quite good and the woman working there very nice. We found the...
