Cute, cozy, across the street from the lake, lovely pool and hot tub, family run, covered new BBQ area with tables and chairs and fire pits. Glamping at it's best! Older but well maintained! Friendly and accommodating owners. The units have kitchenettes and some have separate bedrooms.

I haven't even left yet but I just had to mention this motel. Yes it's an older motel and furniture etc.. is older and there are ceiling water stains, but the room was spotlessly clean. The pool and courtyard are great. Best of all are the people! Christine is above awesome. She is super friendly, helpful and more than accommodating.... More

We booked for one night based on tripadvisor recommendation. The motel is older we brought our dog so not sure if other rooms updated but ours was fine. Can't beat the value for 2 beds and kitchen. The best part was the super nice pool area with large pool that would give some resorts a run for their money. They... More

The Bowmont is the perfect family place to stay at! The owners are the most awesome friendliest people you'll ever meet! The location is great it's right close to the lake and across the street from Loco Landing a great place for the kids to play. We had the best time staying there!!

For 20 years I've come to Penticton to work for a 2-3 week stretch every summer and up until last year I've not found a motel that I wanted to come back to the following year. Last year I stayed at the Bowmont Motel and struck gold! It has the pool and BBQ area that most of the reviews speak... More

Stayed here many years ago and had a fantastic time.This visit was not the same as then.The room we were given was dark dingy and depressing.We found the hotel to be run down looking and not very inviting. The lady at the counter was very pleasant and friendly but that wasn't enough to keep me at the hotel..I asked to... More

We had a family gathering at the Bowmont. The outdoor BBQ area was perfect for cooking for our large group. There is plenty of seating and very comfortable. The newly renovated pool and hot tub were a great hit. Lots of lounge chairs for everyone.

Check in and check out were a breeze. Room was clean and organized. BBQ \ lounge \ pool \ hot tub areas have all been newly renovated (as of May 2015) and they did an amazing job. For the price it exceeded our expectations, however I have 3 recommendations to travelers to make your stay more enjoyable. 1. Bring a... More

We were recommended to stay here by some hockey friends of ours since our son was attending the Okanagan Hockey School for a week in Penticton last summer. We honestly had never stayed at a motel before since there are so many of us, 6 in all, however we had a very nice stay. We probably could have used a... More

We have stayed at the Bowmont several years in a row now and love it. The owners are so hospitable- they remember your names and things about you and this year they even called us to ask if we were planning on coming to stay during the usual weekend as rooms were booking up. We did a big race in... More
