Where to stay in Kamloops

Offering views over the river and proximity to the train station, the city center serves as the most convenient place to stay in Kamloops. Running parallel to the river, Landsdowne Street offers the best range of options, with several mid-range hotels providing buffet breakfasts and amenities, such as swimming pools and air-conditioned rooms. If you're happy with a place to park your car and rest for the night, look to Columbia Street West to find a cluster of budget-friendly motels and motor inns. Farther southwest, near the neighborhood of Dufferin, you'll find a collection of chain hotels and conference centers.
