5 of 5 stars Reviewed yesterday NEW

We have been staying here for 20+ years for our family reunions! Great updated rooms with all the conveniences of home, fabulous pool, wonderful lawn space with gazebos and BBQs. Just a couple of minutes from Skaha Beach. Restaurants just down the road. Valley Star is definitely the best spot in Penticton!

A great TA find. Small inexpensive motel with all the necessary amenities: near the beach, nice clean rooms with easy parking, clean pool, lots of bbqs on site, outdoor seating, nice grounds and across the road from a great pizza place, great bistro, pub, liquor store and convenience store. Also sells ice for coolers and has a laundry mat and... More

Another great year at this lovely motel. Located within walking distance to the clean Skaha Beach. The motel is family owned with hard working staff. The rooms and grounds are cleaned everyday, the grass is mowed and lush with beautiful flowers everywhere. The middle courtyard has a gazebo, several tables with chairs and BBQ's to use. The motel has a... More

We have been going to the Valley Star each summer for a number of years. When our children were little, it was the perfect destination. The rooms were comfortable and had everything that we needed. The courtyard, gazebo's and salt water pool offer everything that a family could want for their Okanagan vacation. Just a block from Skaha Beach, Gilligan's... More

Before our summer family vacation got started I had the brilliant idea of driving and finding hotels when we arrived at our destination. Well, two days before our vacation we got cold feet and started to call for places to stay. When we were ready to book in Penticton we could not find any place to stay, until we spoke... More

Fantastic location as it is close to the Penticton River Channel, Loco Landing Adventure Park, and the beach. It is also close to Walmart and Fast Food Chains. It's very convenient. The room is spacious and clean and comes equipped with free wi-fi, air conditioning, a refrigerator and stove. We used the barbecue everyday. There's a nice playground in the... More

This is our third summer staying at this property and we have tried a different room each time. With two growing teenagers we were in room 26 and it was great. Big enough for the four of us, quiet, comfortable and clean, it has everything we need. The BBQs and courtyard are great and of course the pool and the... More

My family gathered for a 3 generation reunion. Most of the younger ones camped. But several of us got to enjoy comfortable beds, no rain to run for cover from at night, and the warm welcome from Bimi and her husband. Spic and span grounds and accommodations . An abundance of flowers everywhere, two lovely gazebos and a sparkling pool.... More

They Valley Star exceeded our expectations. The owners are excellent and friendly hosts, and take care of every detail. Chilled wine glasses were waiting for us in the fridge. Pool is spotlessly clean with lots of comfortable seating on the pool deck. Kitchen is small but has everything you need. Room layout is excellent for families and quite spacious. There... More

Cozy affordable motel close to Skaha, restaurants, channel and shopping. Was quite hot during our stay so the pool was very refreshing and not too warm. Comfortable chaise lounges around pool, BBQS available and lots of outdoor seating. Would definitely stay here again.
