I don't know what else you could want from a motel, but that is my criteria. The Valley Star is an older motel, but the owners have made upgrades so that it looks like a newer property. The bed was comfortable, the room was clean, & even tho it's on a main st, it was quiet. There is a full... More

My wife and I stayed at Valley Star for 4 nights last week for a ski trip to Apex Mountain near Penticton. We lucked out with this motel! Our 2 queen-bed room was very clean and well equipped, great beds, very convenient kitchen with a full-size fridge. The staff (owners) are VERY hospitable and friendly. On a couple of occasions,...

This is an older motel in Penticton but it is very clean, in a good location and some updates have been made. Realistically, you get what you pay for and this motel is a cheap night's accomodation. The most important thing to my way of thinking is the bed was comfortable and everything was spotless.

I saw the last review about this Motel and I 110% disagree!!! I have been staying here for years and years all the rooms have been updated , added a brand new Gazibo, totally redone the pool, adding a brand new fence for added privacy. The owners first concern is their guests happiness! You want reasonable updated rooms please come... More

I don't get the other reviews because this place was awful! We were put into a tiny room, that had miss matched tile on the floor, and the appliances looked like they were from the 80's. We refused to take a shower as the bathroom was in serious need of repair. No idea how this is #1 in Penticton, the... More

The pictures do not show what the rooms actually room like. Rooms are very dated. Microwave and fridge looks like they are from the 80's yellow in color. Our room had two different colored tiles on the floor and the tub is old and dingy. We would not have stayed here if we would have know it would have been... More

The kind of surprise everyone loves. This is a first for us. A budget accommodation where the professionally staged photos actually look identical to what you're really getting! Like previous comments state, driving past the property does not reflect the comfort within...not at all. Very comfortable bed, lots of water (hot and cold), nice bath & shower, designated parking and... More

Wish we were staying more than one night. This place is awesome! Easy to find as it's on the main drag. Extremely affordable and such a large, nice room! The complex itself is really clean and really well maintained. The manager was very sweet and switched us to a larger room that had a little yard to accommodate our dog.... More

From the outside it looks like any motel. But once you enter the room, you are pleasantly surprised. The rooms are clean, well appointed and the kitchen is some units is very useful.

Location was great, on the Main Street. Easy access to the beach. Easy access to restaurants and local wineries. The staff was friendly and facility was extremely clean. Beds were comfortable. Would stay here again in future.
