We spent a few days here exploring the area. The kitchen was well stocked with everything we needed to prepare our own meals. The rooms were clean and well equipped. The hotel is located right across the street from a park with a great area for kids. We enjoyed a walk along the river each evening looking at the fish... More

The pool and patio furniture are beautiful, but the bottom of the pool is stucco, so it's easy to scratch your feet if you're not careful. The rooms are the complete opposite of the lovely pool area. We didn't care that they were old. The problem was that for the money we paid to stay, we only had our towels... More

I stayed at the Bowmont for one week in July 2015 with my wife and two kids. Some of my extended family rented other rooms in the motel. We've been to Penticton many times, but this is the first time I've stayed at the Bowmont since I was a kid. Our main motivation for choosing the Bowmont was for the... More

First time staying at the Bowmont from July 16th to 19th. Was recommended by a friend, who's been going every year for many years! Christine and Dan the owners are very personable and care about your stay. The pool and barbeque area are great! Room was very clean, nice comfy beds, full kitchen (ice in the freezer, when we arrived),... More

Amazing job on the court yard renovations!! The "Bistro" is a great addition to the Bowmont experience. Your new BBQ's and covered outside seating area is a plus. Home away from home. We are looking forward to our return trip in August 2015. The Ruckman Family

My husband and I decided to go to Penticton for five days of relax, climbing, and the lake. We chose the Bowmont because it had incredible reviews on Tripadvisor! For sure they are all true! This place is a travellers' dream: cheap, in a beautiful location and with amazing amenities! For an incredibly low price you can have a room... More

First visit to the Bowmont and I highly recommend it. The owners and staff are wonderful, they have done a great job with the pool and BBQ area. The place is spotless and the beds are very comfortable. Loved it and hope to return.

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
