Stayed here overnight then took a shuttle up to Myra Canyon to ride the Kettle Valley Rail-Trail. The gentleman at the front desk was very helpful. We biked down to Chute Lake to stay over the next night then back to Penticton on the second day. We were allowed to leave our car in the motel parking lot even though... More

Was really overcharged ( $160 for a night) and it was old and outdated. For that kind of money we could have stayed in a nicer , more updated place. Wifi was free but couldn't even log on , not once. Just a heads up I booked online and was charged an extra 10% RM tax ( I know they... More

We were here for Challenge Penticton triathlon. The Riverside motel was a great base for our family. Easy walk to the beach, opposite Loco Landing (which provided a full day of fun for the kids), nice outdoor pool and handy amenities (BBQ, kitchen area etc.). The rooms are a little tired, but comfy enough. The staff were really sweet and... More

this motel was so cute and clean and the man who was working there was so sweet. At check out how ever i had the horrible experience of dealing with his receptionist, and it was nasty. I didn't understand how charging for a hotel works so i was confused and asking her questions about billing, she was yelling at me... More

We just returned from out 6th annual family vacation in Penticton. We have always stayed at Riverside and wouldn't consider staying anywhere else, in fact last year some of us came up for a ball tournament in Kelowna and stayed in Penticton and drove up each day! We are a group of usually 17 people ranging in age from grandparents... More

We have been going to this motel since the 1970's. Yes I know you will think it is an old dump but they keep it up with something redone every year. It is a great family motel. Pool is in the center and all rooms surround it. Cars are on the other side, never seen. Manager patrols area and is... More

Our first impression of the motel was "it was a dump". There were webs/flies(?) all over the exterior of the motel and then I discovered more inside the room by the windows. The "suite" was crammed into the space of a regular sized motel room; There was a wall with a door, and just enough space to fit a bed... More

I have stayed at Riverside Motel over 12 summers; we have seen people that keep coming back to Riverside Motel after 20 years. We think Riverside is a perfect place for couples, singles or families, with or without children. The rooms are clean, the pool is well tended to; we love the convenience of having a kitchenette to cook; the... More

We stayed for three nights and only got to use the pool once because it always seemed to be filled with kids splashing around. Even at 10:30 in the evening kids were still in the pool shouting. Because the pool is so close to the rooms getting to sleep before 11 pm is impossible. The room itself was good, with... More
