“Great people, great spot!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed November 29, 2013

From the moment we arrived we were made to feel so welcome which was hugely important for me being new to Canada. They were more than accommodating with what kind of room we needed and they also had so many suggestions for where to go, what to do and also invited us for a rum by the BBQ, which in my books is 5 star!
We were working near by and did a monthly rental so The Bowmont was super affordable and great location.
I would recommend to anyone who asked.
Thanks again team!

Would have rated this motel much higher had our room not smelt like an ash tray. I had to purchase an air freshener and clip it to the AC unit Beside that, the room was clean and the hot tub.pool areas are nice. Might stay again, however would have to check out/smell the room first.

Room Tip: Smell it first.

Our family of three really enjoyed our three nights at the Bowmont. Loved the location, friendly service, spacious rooms, high-end BBQs, and of course the amazing pool. We loved it so much we're already booked for next summer. Good value- we paid about $125 including tax.

4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 5, 2013

Stayed here recently with a large mixed group. From the moment we checked in we felt had a smile on our faces. Amazing hosts put you immediately at ease. We had a room on the upper floor with two queen beds. It was equipped with a full kitchen, air conditioning and a small patio with a couple of chairs and table. This motel was located just a few blocks from the top of the canal and you can just see the lake in the distance. There is a strip of restaurants within easy walking distance. The motel was nothing fancy and unfortunately our room (though non smoking) smelled of smoke, however the location was great and the hosts so welcoming that we all discussed staying here again next year. We all found the beds very comfortable. Good value for your money here, but if you are looking for a fancy hotel, this is not the place. Great summer rental.

My husband and I have now had 2 stays at the Bowmont Motel. The hosts are super friendly and very helpful. The atmosphere is family friendly and the kind of place you can feel totally comfortable. We love the location and facilities too. Penticton and the Okanagan Valley is a lovely place to visit. We have found the Bowmont experience added so much extra value to our trips.

Had a nice family stay at the Bowmont and the motel is in a great location just off the beach. My extended family has been coming here for 30 odd years. Our room overlooking the courtyard and pool lovely, so nice to see the families and kids enjoying themselves, a good family atmosphere. And the air conditioning was excellent. Nice to have the kitchen, although it was understocked, only exactly 4 forks etc, no no pot big enough for pasta, no corkscrew, no bowl for salad.

Beds need to be replaced and some of the furniture was so shabby. Agree with a previous poster, may be a good market opportunity to update to a retro market niche? Excellent reservation process but then a little unfriendly during check and during our stay.
