We thought we were reserving a room on the lakefront, but we got a run-down two bedroom with kitchen fronting on the parking lot. Although the owner was gracious and gave us a bag of ice when we asked the location of the ice machine, this is not a place we'd stay again. This property needs a thorough cleaning and... More

Casual and relaxing atmosphere right on the beach. Rooms are older but clean and housekeeping staff are friendly and happy to supply extra towels etc. We enjoyed using the BBQ's and eating at the picnic tables in the common green area, looking out on the lake. Family LOVES coming here. Always have a terrific time. Great family accommodation. Can't wait... More

Another great Canada Day stay. Best place to see the fireworks. Clean and friendly. Cyndi and Frank that run the place are VERY friendly and take care of any problems that come up right away. My wife and I try to get away to Osoyoos whenever we can and we always stay at the Poplars. Looking forward to our next... More

Hadn't really thought we might be coming back before our stay but now I know why so many of the other reviewers mentioned they've been here more than once. Friendly couple has been running the motel for something like 25 years. Good value for money. Right on the beach. Relaxed ambiance. Great communal space. Old but clean rooms.

We have been coming to the Poplars for 4 years. Very friendly staff, clean, family oriented and right on the beach !! Although an older establishment, our family has found it to be very clean and well maintained. We will be back again next year !!

Perfect Mom and Pop shop, Mom and Pop are fantastic, friendly very sweet and informative about the area. (I even saw them run to the store to get milk for an older couple that checked in later in the day) The hotel itself has been around for some time and it's age shows a bit in the decor but it's...

The best place to stay in Osoyoos! Friendly, clean, safe and family orientated. The housekeeping staff is the best, everyday came to clean our room and make sure we had everything! Outdoor barbeques are cleaned everyday, which is why we have been coming to this particular Motel on the beach for years. Would not go anywhere else. Well return again... More

We had an amazing time at the Poplars, as we always do. Our family and extended family have been visiting the Poplars for many years. We keep going back for the amazing waterfront location and private beach that can't be beat, in addition to the well kept and clean rooms. Love the kitchenette, access to BBQs, close proximity to attractions... More

This is a motel set in a gorgeous spot in Osoyoos. The housekeeping staff was awful. Our toilet, bathtub and sink were not cleaned for days, we ended up buying household cleanser and cleaned them ourselves. We needed to ask twice for toilet paper and clean towels. After washing our dishes, I was placing them back in the cupboard when... More
