WE stayed here Sept 6 & 7th...very memorable. Very clean room, well equipped. Spa-pool. Everything a person needs to enjoy a night or longer. We will definately stay at the Waterfront Inn whenever we are in Penticton. We could not find one thing wrong with this property and the management was most helpful on our needs and for conversation...do engage... More

We had a pleasant stay at the Waterfront Inn. The location was perfect for the dragon boat regatta...directly across the street from the park on Skaha Lake! The rooms are clean, plus there is a lovely spa-pool and a great deck with gas barbeques for guests. Plus, we especially liked Peter (the long time owner of the motel)...thank you, Peter,... More

Upon my arrival, the proprietor informed me that I owed him additional money. When I asked him about his claim, he informed me he had my credit card on file and that he would charge me without my signature. I tried to move on and enjoy my stay, but the proprietor came to my room. He continued to tell me... More

This guest had made a reservation through Expedia.com for “ 1 adult” . The daily rate was clearly stated on her confirmation from Expedia.com. When she checked in she had 3 additional children with her. She was informed that there was an extra charge for additional persons. As the quoted rate from Expedia.com was for 1 or 2 persons the...

My first visit to this beautiful Inn was for a family reunion in 2011 and since then I have returned several times over the last few years just to relax and enjoy this Inn and Peter's smiling face. The rooms are very clean and comfortable and the location is amazing. I also love the fact that this Inn has kitchenette... More

I have stayed at this hotel twice now and will never stay again or recommend it to anyone because of the rude and obnoxious behavior of the owner who confronted a family visitor on the last stay in August calling her cheap and telling her she was not welcome to visit because she was staying at the hotel next door....

We found this place online and were not sure what to expect, It is a small, older property that has been upgraded but does not have "high end" hotel amenities. We had a full kitchen/living room with futon and a small but comfortable bedroom. The unit was spotlessly clean. The staff were good humoured and helpful. The location, overlooking a... More

I have stayed at this hotel for 3 years straight. The rooms are exceptionally clean and include everything you would need from an amenity standpoint. Peter, the owner/manager, is very outgoing and accomodating. The location cannot be beat as you are literally a 60 second walk from the beach of Skaha lake. We plan to return in 2015 with friends....

If your goal, while visiting Penticton, is to find a spotless and reasonably priced room/kitchenette, then your search has ended. You cannot do better than this Inn. It's proprietor, Peter, is extremely fussy about upkeep and the place gleams. It is about 500 feet from Skaha Lake and every room looks out on it. It is so quiet , you... More

We recently had a short, yet exceptionally pleasant 2 night stay at the Waterfront Inn. As we pulled in to register, we were immediately impressed with the location...a park that edges an inviting beach on Skaha lake would be a mere minute's walk from the inn. Seeing how limited the general public parking will be during the chaotic summer season,... More
