If you are looking for a budget friendly hotel in Osoyoos, this is your spot! The location couldn't get better with a big stretch of beach, grassy area with picnic tables and a pub right next door! My family and I fill our days by soaking up the sun, swimming, BBQing & trips to the local wineries! Frank & Cindy... More

This is a very friendly place to stay. The managers Frank and Cathy were so helpful. When we arrived with screeching brakes they gave us the info we needed. The rooms are clean and the "price is right". All the guests on the beach know everyone so it is repeat clients. The beachfront is well kept.

We have stayed at almost all the hotels on the main street strip; and by far one of the best ones is definitely the poplars. I completely disagree with the people saying it is dirty-because on the contrary I find it one of the cleanest hotels up here. The cleaning staff is great, and unless noted they come in everyday...

The people of Osoyoos continue to amaze me with their kindness and good nature.....Osoyoos is a small town you won't soon forget. This friendly nature and exceptional service extends to Frank & Cindy who manage the Poplars Motel; they will make you feel right at home and do whatever is necessary to make your stay perfect. Another bonus....the Poplars Motel... More

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

Pros • Wonderful location – this hotel has a private beach just out your door • Nice grassy picnic area • It was great they provide BBQs – we enjoyed BBQing some salmon • I am happy to see they recycle – and they provided bins for food scraps and recyclables • They were thoughtful in providing dish soap and...

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 !!
