This is a great place to stay, super walkable location. This hotel is old but is very well kept and extremely clean. The rooms are quiet, because it has cinder block walls. The hosts go out of their way to make your stay a wonderful experience.

I had the pleasure of staying at the El Rancho Motor Hotel for a prolonged stay. At the time I was in Penticton for work, so El Rancho became my temporary home which could have rolled over to a permanent home if I had chosen to stay. What keeps the place fond in my memories is the sincerity and friendliness... More

Stayed here for 2 weeks in July. The motel is super clean, bed was very comfortable and the rooms are quiet. Also have wifi service. The hosts will go out of their way to make your stay as comfortable as possible. Will definitely stay here again on my next visit to Penticton.

My partner and were looking for short term accomodation while initially planning to move from Penticton to Calgary. We stayed at the El Rancho for a period of 3 months. Managers Bill and Gail were so welcoming, friendly, warm and caring! Our room was very clean upon check-in! Trina the chambermaid was outstanding for the duration of our stay. They... More

Let's face it: the Ritz-Carlton this is not. But what the El Rancho might lack in elegance the owners make up easily with super-friendly service and dedication. We've stayed there twice between Jul and Aug '11 and both times our hosts were extremely accommodating. What you get: * a nice, clean place 2 blocks from the beach and close to... More

Needed a room for a few days as our son was attending the hockey school in Penticton. Found this gem through reviews on Tripadvisor and decided to give it a try. The friendly one on one service was a very pleasant surprise, and our room was very clean. It had everything we needed including a kitchenette at a rate that... More

Needed a hotel on a Friday during the summer high season. At $80 a night this was a bargain as most hotels were in the area of $100+ Easy to find, just a few blocks from the beach and found the owners/staff very friendly from the start. It's definitely an older motel but the room was maintained well with a... More

Due to delays, we arrived on a Saturday night late at night, long after other places had closed their doors. We called El-Rancho and they were nice enough to let us a room. Although the furniture was dated, the room itself was very clean and quiet. I didn't even know there was anyone in the next room. Lake Okanagan is... More

Booked this hotel on the May long weekend, when all the hotel chains / larger establishments were booked up. Took a chance based on the TripAdvisor recommendations. Unbelievably cheap! Better yet, super clean (something you wouldn't expect based on the low price point.) My cleanliness-obsessed partner couldn't stop commenting on how good the place felt. Couple of blocks to the...

Overall this motel was pretty decent. The furnishings are like hopping in a time maching to 1962, but it is clean, and most importantly the air conditioning works. The owners were very nice to deal with and full of good advice about the area. There really isn't much to complain about for the price.
