This little motel is a well-tended gem near the beach parks on the Skaha Lake end of town. In our king-bad room we felt we got excellent value for our $89+tax: a lovely bed, stylish bathroom, sitting area with nice lounge chairs, a fridge, a big closet, and even a small fenced patio with lounge chairs. Everything about the place... More

The web site pictures give the correct depiction of what you will get. Our double queen kitchenette was clean, and the renos have perked up this older motel well. The rates were comparable with other motels, but their advantage is washroom renos and updated furniture. Friendly operator Bimla was not only accommodating, but also personalized her service inquiring about our... More

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
