If you are looking for room that offers great value with a friendly atmosphere then the Bowmont Motel is the place to stay when in Penticton! Great location with a beautiful family friendly court yard and just steps to the beach. What we really appreciated the most was when we needed something we just asked Dan or Christine (the owners)...

This is a great motel within mere steps from the lake and canal float. Yes, the decor is old but it provides it with some charm. The room itself is spacious and the staff are great and very helpful. The value is a little steep but it is worth it for its walking distance to nearby attractions.

Judging by the other reviews I read on here before booking at the Bowmont, I was definitely not expecting a modern room with new furniture and amenities. I expected it to be old-fashioned and maybe a bit shabby, but still charming and nice. I was bitterly disappointed when we opened the door of our room at the Bowmont and were... More

I love this place. I have stayed here 8 years in a row but unfortunately have to miss this year. Many of the rooms have kitchens and all have quite a bit of space for families. Not all rooms are updated yet, but they are working on it. The pool area is lovely with bbq pits to rent. No need... More

We were very pleasantly surprised at how clean and spacious our king room was and also how friendly staff and management are here! That on itself is a big score :-) With 30c+ temps every day we never needed the AC. Unfortunately the foam mattress on our king bed was very hard for us and management tried to help by... More

We stayed at the Bowmont Motel in Penticton BC for 4 nights. This hotel is clean, the staff is nice and helpful - they helped with my in-llaws with their luggage, the motel is safe and close to the beach. The motel even has kitchenettes which allowed us to make meals during our stay. The only negative thing about this... More

Best place ever!! Awesome owners and staff. This is the only place I will ever stay in Penticton. Perfect location near lake, channel and Loco Landing amusement park. Terrific pool. Everyone so friendly and welcoming. Best vacations staying here.

Have had a medical experience while on our holiday. My husband was hospitalized and then needed to be medevac'd. I can't explain how helpful they have been in this complicated time. The pool is the hot spot ;with many families coming year after year.

We held our family reunion at the Bowmont Motel , May 2014, and couldn't ask for a better venue. The owners made us all feel like we were part of their family and were so obliging ensuring that we were all comfortable and having a wonderful time. The rooms were clean and comfy and the kitchens were nice and big... More
