We stayed here for a few nights before going up to Apex Mountain for a few days. We chose the Empire because of the rating and the fact that they had two room suites. It was clean and very quiet this time of year.

This was our families first stay at the Empire Motel. It was great. Room was very clean, staff very friendly. Pool was great. The courtyard was a great place to hang in the evening and BBQ. Location was great so close to Skaha Beach. Motel provides a wagon to take your stuff to the beach. We loved it so much... More

We have been staying here for several years during the Penticton Dragonboat Festival and always have had exceptional service, very clean and comfortable rooms. The decor in each room is very attractive and not sterile like some hotels. The china coffee cups and wine glasses add that bit of extra.

Walking distance to Skaha Lake with the motel providing little wagons to help haul the beach toys. We have stayed here before and will again. Staff is friendly and quick to respond to any... More

We had a room that sleeps 6 with a kitchen. The staff were all very nice and helpful. We stayed three nights and used it as a base for Oliver to the south and Kelowna area to the north. I enjoyed reading at the nice BBQ area next to the pool in the morning before the kids woke up, with... More

We stayed here for 2 nights after camping around in Kootnay BC for days. As soon as we entered the room fresh air conditioned air welcomed us that we missed during the camping. The room was pretty clean, well-decorated with country style items, furnished TV, fridge, and hair dryer. Coffee maker and wine glasses were prepared. A bath tub is... More

Just a few minutes walk away from Skaha Beach. Nice pool and play area for the kids. BBQ available for use. Wagons and bikes available to rent. Enjoyed our stay at this motel. If you want to stay on Skaha side this is good value.
