“Don't waste your money!”
1 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 4 August 2011

This hotel was a complete disappointment for Howard johnson brand standards. They are a mess, with rude staff, aside from the blonde woman. The hotel looks gross from the outside and isn't much better on the inside. The bedding in my room was also all creased like it hadn't been washed. It is way over priced and should be more of a 50$ per night hotel instead of the 100$ I paid. Would never stay here again, and definitely not recommend it!

Spent a night here and had breakfast - the place is being renovated a bit right now but it's not bad. Really clean washrooms and beds, nice HDTV in our room too. Paid 100-something per night and can't complain. The place looks shabby but it's not bad at all. The breakfast was solid - typical complimentary breakfast fare. I liked the waffle maker though! The staff was nice too and offered to make me waffles several times.

Once everyone discovers the value they receive with this gem, it'll be hard to get a room there! It's a family-owned and operated motel and they have been renovating with a sophistication you seldom find in a motel. They have used high-end materials and a great design plan that makes you feel like you're in the lap of luxury for a small price. We were on a road trip and had only planned to stay one, maybe two, nights in Kelowna and move on but we were so comfortable there that we made it our home base for four nights. We got a really good sleep on comfortable mattresses, it was quiet and we felt safe with Dave (the owner/mgr.) working the night shift. Dave, his daughter and staff were always pleasant and very attentive to our needs, and everything was SO clean. The included breakfast was exceptional for a motel this size, with fresh fruit every day and waffles! Excellent coffee too. One note: as I said---they are renovating---and, lucky for us travellers, they are doing the rooms first, then they will do the exterior (right now it doesn't look so good on the outside--- not bad--- just not gorgeous like the inside). We found the location perfect for our driving tours of the Okanagan and were also pleased to find that the motel is located close to the airport as next time we visit the area we will fly there and want to stay at this HOJO beauty again! Hopefully there will be a room available!! :)

the management informed us upon our arrival that someone had smoked heavily in our room and they would discount it by $10. This was unacceptable due to the stench. We were offered a much smaller room that would not fit our family and there were informed there were no cots available. They informed us they were not full, so we requested if they could give us 2 rooms for the original price of the very large room as it was later and we had an event to attend to. They would only offer a discount on the price of 2 rooms...thereby would be making money off of the fact someone had smoked in our previously booked room. When we said we could not stay there then, they informed us they would not charge us for the night as we booked it on-line and they had a right to charge us! Unbelievable that they would even consider that an issue. I was very disappointed in the customer service as that late at night I am sure their rooms were not booking up and we were left looking for a place to accomodate us in the same price range.

While the curb appeal of this hotel is at present somewhat lacking, the staff, rooms and continental breakfast are superb for the price charged. The owner/manager and his son treated me with respect in a very friendly manner. The room was very comfortable and super clean. I would highly recommend this facility and the hospitality to anyone looking for a clean, comfortable stay. Best bang for the buck in town!

Room Tip: Found this hotel through internet & Wyndham.
