        I was disappointed to find out once I arrived at the residence that the two rooms I booked were not beside each other, after booking days in advance to find out they were sold out and could not move anything to accommate this request and reason why I booked the rooms.

      • Family with children
        9.6

        Location was excellent, clean rooms, very quiet, and value

        Hard beds and a few utensils would be nice

        Helpful staff, newer facility, location.

        From its name I thought that this facility would be a hotel that also gets used by the tru students as a dorm. It was completely the other way around. This is really a classic dormitory that gets used as a motel and conference center. It was poorly signed (for finding the location) and the parking and even loading/unloading of luggage was a big hassle as there was really no good place to park the car up front to load and unload. Rooms were more like hospital rooms than a hotel.

        Easy to get to but confusing to gps as same # as gym. Fortunately someone there prompted us to the correct location. Breakfast was easy to get.

        The shower head fell off so wasn't able to use shower.

      • Family with children
        9.6

        room to accomodate 6 people

        washroom wasn't as clean as expected

      • Family with children
        6.6

        This facility is very convenient for sports groups. We were there for a swim meet. It is very practical and easy to accommodate everyone.

        The rooms lack a sitting area, which would be very helpful with a four bedroom. There was also a lack of detail regarding the kitchen/cooking facilities and what they included/excluded. Greater detail would be helpful when booking this type of room.

        Loved the view

        I had to get up at 1 am to see who was playing music loudly .... it was the room above me. I reported this to the desk and the music, for a while was turned down... by 2 am I had to phone the desk to once again ask that the room be made to turn the awful and wierd music down, or better yet off! It was finally done, but I lost most of my sleep time by then which was too bad as I had to drive tired next day...

        It was close to the Rocky Mountain 1200 wind-up party at the Activity Centre and the price was reasonable. Also, we arrived almost 2 hours before check-in time but it was not a problem.

        we did NOT like tru residence(kamloops) it was not at all what they showed. it was dissapointing in the style of room, NO comfort unless you want to sit at a dinningroom table. the bed was just a double. I would have a different picture when the say we have a reservation for a 2 bedroom suite?? the staff was very helpfull, after we 1st encountered a room that was not cleaned yet. we were to stay 2 nights, but went somewhere else for the 2nd. sorry this is the most negative we've ever been about a stay. :( :( in short it is just a student dorm

        its a student dorm NOT a motel/hotel.

        We Liked the price, how clean it is, as well as the location to where we needed to be. It is a comfortable place to stay.

        Location was great as I was attending TRU for a course.

        Internet didn't work. Noisy.

      • Older travelers
        8.2

        Very quiet and spacious accommodation with clean rooms.

        Despite being spacious it was quite basic without any amenities such as hair dryer or tea or coffee making facilities. There was a microwave but no cooking allowed and not even a mug to heat water for tea or coffee.

      • Older travelers
        9.2

        I like the comfort of the beds as well as the temperature in the room. I slept very well. It is also situated in a very picturesque setting and the large windows take full advantage of a spectacular view.

        I arrived at 3:15 and was not able to check in early. The check in time is 4:00. There was a very limited selection for breakfast.

      • Family with children
        6.6

        Staff was very friendly. The room was very clean. The large fridge came in very handy. The room rate was very reasonable.

        The beds were incredibly uncomfortable. It felt as though we were sleeping on a box spring. The breakfast in the morning offered another disappointment as there were pancakes available "only for the volleyball group visiting" yet was displayed for all the guests to see. The kids love pancakes so it was tough for them to see an entire tray go untouched while they were restricted to bagels, bread, fruit and cereal. If the beds were more comfortable, we would consider staying there every time we pass through.

        Location; windows that open! Weight room; good parking.

        Breakfast is your weakest element. But at that cost, it was acceptable.
