We come to Penticton for Peachfest, so it is a busy time in this city. We stayed here August 7 to 10th, 2014. The first year, my brother booked the room for us. We had a basic room with 2 beds, microwave, coffee maker and the best a/c ever! After a day on the canal, the ice cold room was... More

Rosemary J, Manager at Ogopogo Motel, responded to this review

As managers at the Ogopogo Motel, we quite often do not respond to negative reviews as it can seem as though we are just playing tit-for-tat, but we do at times feel the need to tell both sides of the story especially when a review is quite embellished! We also have the right to refuse service to any guests who... More

The physical facility is exactly what we expected for a vintage motel that's showing it's age. But . . . the beds were brand new and very comfortable and the sheets were clean. The a/c ran cold and the shower had lots of hot water with very good pressure. Also,the managers were extremely friendly and helpful. It will never compete... More

I always think people should book based on the reviews, so if you are paying half what other properties are charging, then you might be getting great value - for the price - but maybe not receive the amenities. Either way you know what you are in for. This motel is a prime example, I paid a lot less and... More

We have been traveling to Pentiction for over 5 years during the time of peachfest, we have stayed at the hotels on Lakeshore which were very costly during that time. The Ogopogo Motel is where you must be! It is right across the street is the channel and a short walk to the beach. It is also, near a grocery... More

As an experienced RV traveler, we were hesitant to stay at this RV park due to its "run down" look. We have always stayed at the Impeccable Park Royal RV beside the Ogopogo RV but it was full, and as we were taking our 4 young grandchildren, the lure of a pool made it happen. The "new managers "started Sept/12"... More

My girlfriends and I stayed at the Ogopogo Motel for 3 days. We chose it because it is so reasonably priced, and the location is perfect. We have stayed here before and I must say that the motel is looking better than ever. The room we stayed in had a brand new bed which was amazing, the motel was very... More

I had made a reservation, expecting to check in around 6:30 PM. My work ran a little late and I didn't check in until 8:30. Keep in mind no one said anything about a check in deadline. As soon asI rang the doorbell on the office the manager/owner, not sure which, started yelling and swearing at me about how I... More

The tubing canal is right across the street, and that's where the buses return you to at the end of your float. The motel was clean, hard beds however, and it has an outdoor pool (I didn't swim in it, but my friends all did). We got "told" for talking outside our rooms at night, so they asked us to... More

Thanks for your comments and just wanted to note that the shower heads have all been fixed (calcium buildup - sorry about your skin!) and the beds are in the process of being replaced. We look forward to seeing you again. More
