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

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

The only problem is parking. Parking stalls aren't marked with room numbers so guests parking anywhere they find empty. Personnel is very friendly it is clean and rooms are kept in good condition, housekeeping is fair and honest.

Thank you for your very kind review of your experiences with us. We use these reviews to help us identify areas where we have room for improvement, and perhaps our parking lot is one of them. We have been doing a number of upgrades to the hotel recently. I do hope that you will return to stay with us again... More

Stayed here in June and was very satisfied, extremely helpful Reception clerk, comfortable, very clean well appointed room and...quiet even though it is so close to the Highway and thus easy to access. The garden area with BBQ's is a extra plus.

Booked a room with a double and a sofa bed. The sofa bed was the tiniest thing I've ever seen. Maybe 30" wide mattress? For 2+2 kids it wasn't enough. The room was old but clean enough. The pool was small. All in all the worst stay at a motel for our family in 10 yrs. At around $150 for... More

The Hotel was amazing for my family of 6 there was enough beds and the Internet was fantastic the service is great and the Free breakfast just makes it even better, only one problem is the parking could be a bit more organized. Other than that my expericene was cheap and worth every second!

Thank you for taking the time to write a review in regards to your stay. I am very sorry that you were dissatisfied with your time with us.
