My girlfriend and i were here on a working vacation. we stayed one night at this motel and were very impressed. The front end staff were very friendly and helpful (thank you Isaac). The room was clean and good. There are 3 bbqs free for guest use and a nice outdoor pool. i will definately stay here again.

I wanted to give an honest review since most of the reviews here seem a little generous. We stayed for 2 nights in a 1 bedroom suite. Reasonable price but you get what you pay for. The room was a typical older, dated motel room. Musty, stale smell, a bit dated and worn but spacious. The kitchen was seriously lacking... More

We were travelling on a road trip and needed somewhere cheap & cheerful to stay as we continued on our route. We were booked to stay at this place but when we pulled up outside we actually gasped at how terrifying the place looked! We sat in the car and pondered whether we should go in and after seeing some... More

This was a last minute booking and rates were very fair compared to other hotels available. Check-in was friendly, fast, and easy. The "suite" was basic, clean and slept 5 as promised. We stayed one night while travelling through and were happy with the pool, great staff, and the location close to the highway. Other guests seemed to be happy... More

I have never called a hotel and been treated so disrespected by a manager. This hotel is a scam! When we were leaving the hotel i asked the lady at the front desk if we needed to clean the dishes and tidy up the room in order to get the damage deposit back, or if we only get charged if... More

From the minute we booked this place until we left 2 weeks later it was a wonderful experience. Staff was amazing and couldn't do enough for us. Trish in reservations, Issac at the desk and the room staff were all beyond pleasant and helpful. The b.b.q. and picnic area was a real bonus for us because we were visiting with... More

I booked a one-night stay for my family in one of the "suites". We were travelling from Vancouver Island to Calgary and just needed a place to sleep that could comfortably accommodate all 5 of use. I booked the stay about 3 months in advance, based primarily on the "pretty good" reviews found here and elsewhere. Sadly, I should have... More

Hi Jerry, I am truly, truly sorry to hear that your stay was not as you had hoped. While I could give reasons as to why there were noisy guests or horrible 8:30am alarms, I like that would just be making excuses. We do try to accommodate all of our guests the best we can and I apologize if we... More

We wanted a space to share with two teenagers. Recreation Inn had the very thing we needed, two rooms three beds. It was one of the most reasonably priced places in Kelowna. It is clean and pleasant. The breakfast is fine, not elaborate, but plenty to eat. The bonus being--real cutlery and plates, cups and glasses. We've been to many... More

Thank you for your honest and wonderful response. We do try to be considerate down to the very last detail, as it's usually the small things that can make the stay exceptional. Our staff is very much aware of the highs and lows that come with teen-aged travelling companions, so we're pleased that your stay was a good one and... More

In an emergency situation, I had to come to Kelowna B.C from my parent's home the Arrow Lakes region due to a sudden illness of my Mother's. She was admitted to the local hospital and I was given a listing of a variety of properties who honored a "medical rate" for people in my situation. The first night I stayed... More

This is an older hotel but it's clean and the price is great. The rooms are an average size but comfortable. Walls are thin however so you can hear the neighbours. It's also in a very convenient location; close to Harvey Avenue, the mall and restaurants.

Thank you so much for this honest feedback in regards to your experiences with us. We will be the first to admit that we are an older property. We are not the fanciest or the most updated of hotels to choose from in Kelowna. But our top priorities are always our guests. From our friendly staff who always offer top... More
