Affordability is definitely one of the lures of Kamloops, British Columbia, a mountain town nestled in a valley at the confluence of the North and South Thompson Rivers. A magnet for hikers and off-road bikers in the summer and skiers in the winter, Kamloops draws fresh air fiends with its Pineview Valley mountain biking trails, hikes among clay hoodoos above Kamloops Lake and cougar- and bear-spotting at the nearby British Columbia Wildlife Park. Swimming opportunities also abound at the rivers, McConnell Lake and the sandy beaches of Riverfront Park, to name a few. Enjoying all this natural bounty needn’t cost a fortune, especially when you stay at one of these cheap hotels in Kamloops, bookable with Culture Trip.

There’s a Scandinavian feel to the interior; meanwhile, the rooms feature a mix of gold and beige, faux-wood furniture and patterned wallpaper. Guests can bring up to two pets – meaning Fido needn’t stay home alone. The Hue is across the highway from the Aberdeen Mall, in case you want to catch a movie at the Cineplex.

The rooms at this well-situated hotel range from standard to queen (disability access) to super king (double room with sofa in separate seating area). The contemporary decor – with splashes of purple against beige walls and cream-colored linens – gives the rooms a light, airy feel. Bonus for workout enthusiasts looking for a cheap hotel in Kamloops: the fully equipped gym has a treadmill, stationary bicycle, dumbbells and an elliptical trainer. Dining-wise, if the several fast food joints near the hotel don’t ring your bell, local favorite Arigato Sushi (across the highway) just might.

You’ve got to love a hotel that provides proper blackout shades. Everyone deserves to sleep in at least one morning of their vacation, right? But with so many outdoorsy attractions close by (BC Wildlife Park, Sun Peaks Ski Resort and Stake Lake), you won’t be lounging in bed everyday. Spacious rooms and suites are livened up by touches of turquoise and aquamarine. There’s an indoor pool, jacuzzi and gym, in case hiking and mountain biking don’t provide enough of a workout. Get ready for an active day out with a waffle and pancake breakfast.

Quality Inn Kamloops, for shopping

If you’re looking for a cheap hotel in Kamloops – and one that enables you to cook your own meals – Quality Inn Kamloops fits the bill nicely. At least three of the rooms feature a kitchenette. Splurge on the suite with a fireplace for those long winter evenings when you can enjoy the shadows from the fire dancing on the wall. Quality Inn is part of a cluster of wallet-friendly hotels across from Aberdeen Mall, and while there are no on-site restaurants, dining options nearby range from handy fast food joints to Twisted Steak, a local favorite.

It’s a banner day when you go looking for a cheap hotel in Kamloops and find one with a saltwater pool.

The handy location, 1mi (1.6km) west of downtown, is ideal for a night on the town, but if you prefer to self-cater, opt for one of the homey suites with comfortable armchairs, knitted throws, antique-style furniture and full kitchenettes.
