This place serves as a great base. It is in the middle of penticton, and close to downtown. The rooms are a little outdated, but unless you are hanging out in their, who cares. They have a nice pool to take a dip in and outside patio area. The wifi is very spotty and drops randomly, just use the DQ... More

We looked around town before picking a place. This one was 1/3 the price of everywhere we went to. To our surprise our room had a queen and 2 singles, perfect for what we needed as well as a small fridge and microwave. Room was very clean. Not a 5 star but exactly what they claim " an inn "...

A big group of us stay here every year and we love it. Never once had a problem. House keeper is super sweet and nice, the family that run it are great, it's clean, very affordable and is near a lot of key places.

I've stayed here a few times over the years for conventions. In fact a good portion of the people involved have stayed here too. It's not a five star, but it is what it needs to be. The place is clean, there are fridges in most rooms, the beds are ok, and the staff/reception are always courteous. I see a... More

We had planned to camp in Penticton, but made the mistake of arriving on a Friday - without a reservation. Of course, many of the hotels & motels were full as well, but we finally phoned the Carmi and they were able to hold a room for us. This motel is located right in the middle of Skaha and Okanagan...

I have stayed at the Carmi for 3 years in a row. The motel is very unassuming located next to the Dairy Queen on Main Street. The rooms are a throwback to the late 60's/70's, and many of the rooms are strange sizes and on the dark side. The motel looks like an Alpen style with white outer walls accented... More

Our team stayed at the Carmi and it was a very good experience. The rooms were clean and comfortable. The staff was very accommodating and helpful. The team had a great time in the pool which was spotless and cleaned every day. It's not a 5-star hotel but if you're looking for a motel with a reasonable price, it's a... More

As the only other review of the inn mentioned: the receptionist was polite and accommodating. The room smells like it has been smoked in for he past 40 years. The pool was green with algea and motel in my opinion the inn should be condemned.

It is with a heavy heart that I write this review..... So I will start with the good. The lady/owners at the front desk were super nice. We rolled into Penticton on a weekend at 2pm with no reservations, so we were lucky to get anything I guess. They showed us a room, we were horrified, asked them to hold... More
