“I'll be back”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed June 29, 2014 via mobile

I have read the reviews here and do not know why people don't like this place. Is it dated? Yup. Is it old? Ya. Are the towels a bit worn. Uh huh. Is the wifi spotty? It was, but i am on vacation! I really do not NEED wifi. And when I asked about it they immediately put a call into their ISO to fix the issue. Immediately! Is the pool surrounded by asphalt? Yes. Are the TVs old? Yessir. But apparently they are updated now. I guess I will find out because I am going back..

The bottom line:

The price is good, the staff is friendly, it is close to everything you need so you can walk to the store, restaurant, etc. the pool is kid friendly and quite large, and there are kitchenettes. It isn't the Hilton or Fairmont, but it is a great little place to stay in a very expensive town in the summer. And who goes to a beautiful area to sit around a motel? So many things to do in Penticton, this is a great little base camp.


And no one asked me to wash the sheets... Don't know what that guy was talking about.

Don't see many mom and pop motels around anymore but wish there were more! We had and amazing stay here Jas & Jack were awesome, our rooms where always clean the beds super comfortable and the whole atmosphere was just excellent. I will definitely stay here again when visiting the Okanogan.

Old and badly in need of upgrading and repairs. The bathroom towels were literally threadbare (with threads hanging down at the edges). The bed was not comfortable. The wifi wasn't working and it was hard to get TV (without getting frustrated trying to figure out which channels were actually available. Most other motels have a listing of available TV channels). Live and learn. I wouldn't recommend and I wouldn't stay there again. There are better choices for the same price in Penticton.

We were coming into Penticton for the Gran Fondo and when we were trying to book a room everything seemed to be either over priced or sold out.

A friend told us about 5000 Motel and they were awesome in getting us 3 rooms at a very reasonable price. When we arrived Jas at the front desk was amazing and super accommodating.

Our room was 39 and it was quite large, had a kitchenette, and was very clean. You do have to realize that the rooms have not been updated in a very long time but are very clean and comfortable. The pool is great, there are a lot of restaurants and grocery stores close by and about half way between Okanagan and Skaha lakes.

Okay for a place to sleep. Clean but very dated. Requires serious updating on everything form units to furniture. Owners are very gracious. I would recommend looking at the rooms before making a commitment to renting one.

Room Tip: Only if you are looking for a place to sleep that is clean and inexpensive.

Loved the extra storage shelves in the bathroom. Futon was squeaky. AC worked. TV is a flatscreen. Fridge was a good size and fairly new. Kitchen was good...spatulas etc felt like they would be so easy to break...overall a good budget accommodation.
