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

We stayed at the Waterfront while attending a penticton convention - it was perfect - the room had everything we needed, it was spotless, the kitchenette was well equipped. The park directly across from the hotel was lovely - it fronts right onto Skaha lake, and is the perfect place for a walk or a run. The park also has... More

Clean, comfortable room, great BBQ space and everything we needed. Loved the box of sand toys and umbrellas to use near the front desk. Great running route right around the hotel also. We had a room on the second floor and had a nice view of the lake from up there. Really nice to walk right to the beach. Hosts... More

We just came home from spending 3 marvelous nights at the Waterfront Inn. It was peaceful and clean. The setting of this motel was perfect, with the best view of Skaha Lake and the beach was just steps away. Our host Peter was friendly and very accommodating. We can't wait to come back and stay again!

First time staying here and I have to say, this motel was one of the cleanest we have ever stayed in. Price per night a little on the high side, but it is the summer and Penticton very busy, not many motels to choose from when I went to book. We had a standard room, which although small was very...

We love Penticton for the small town feel, cute shops and great swimming lakes. This was our first stay at this motel and we stayed a full week. This is beachfront meaning right across the road are the sand volleyball courts, then the beach and Skaha lake. Across the road on the right are tennis courts. At the end of... More

Perfect stay again at the Waterfront inn with friends and family. The hotel is well looked after and always clean. The location is right across the park and beach so the kids kept us busy with loads of activities. The rooftop BBQ's are perfect for group meals. Thank you Peter, you take great care to ensure all your guests are... More

We stayed at The Waterfront Inn with 8 other families. We requested the lower level so we could have the shared patio out front. The units have air conditioning and were very clean. They cleaned our rooms and gave us new towels every day. The motel is walking distance to Skaha lake. The beach is full of families but we... More

We've stayed here for two years now and will definately come back next year. Peter is very friendly, happy to get you what you need - even the little extras like sand toys for the kids. Rooms are very clean and spacious. Quiet at night, no loud parties. Nice deck with BBQ's and tables for eating outside. From the booking... More
