“great saltwater pool”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 4, 2013

We have stayed at the Riverside a number of times the past few years and always have found it to be great, especially the pool area. The rooms are good, clean and well maintained for an older motel. The kitchens could use an upgrade and more pots and pans. If you want to do a lot of your own cooking, I would advise bringing some of your own items. Other than that, a great place to stay.

Room Tip: Pool side if you can get them.

I loved that this motel was close to the beach without being on the noisy waterfront. It's also just across the street from Adventure Land and Coyote Cruises (the start of the channel). The motel also has a fantastic courtyard pool and we were lucky enough to have a room just outside it. There are picnic tables and chairs in the courtyard overlooking the pool, so we could spend our evenings reading out there. I only have a few small quibbles with the room itself: it was pretty cramped with a king size bed, there needed to be more indirect lighting - not just the overhead fluorescents which were terribly bright, and the air conditioner needs to be quieter. Otherwise, we'd definitely stay there again and the staff and management were really nice.

Great location - close to Lakeshore Dr. Beach scene but around the corner in a quieter area. Most rooms overlook the saltwater pool and patio which is a great place to soak up the sun. Clean, family friendly, kitchenette units, balconies on the 2nd floor, 2 BBQ areas, picnic tables, laundromat and all very well maintained. Short walk to Coyote Cruises River Channel, Skateboard Park & other fun attractions, Okanagan Beach and many restaurants. Fresh coffee and the local paper are in the office every morning served by Nick the owner. The staff are very friendly and welcoming.

4 of 5 stars Reviewed June 6, 2013

Our family spent a couple of days at Riverside Motel during our visit to Penticton. We had a room with two queen beds with a kitchenette that had a door opening to the outside and also another door that opened to the pool area. When we went the pool was not yet open as we were early in the season but it looked like a nice place to spend the afternoon. I liked how each room had their own picnic table poolside to enjoy our meals if we wanted to. The kitchenette was equipped well and had everything that we needed (stove, oven, microwave, fridge, dishes, toaster, etc.). We asked if we could check-out a little later because we wanted to go down the channel one more time before heading home and the owners were very accomodating.

We choose this motel due to it's proximity to the lauching site for the channel. It took less than 5 minutes walk to the channel with two young kids. Very convenient! The motel is also very close to S. S. Sicamous and the beach. Restaurants are just a short drive away.

I would definitely stay here again and recommend this place to my family and friends. Good value for our stay.

Room Tip: Ask for a room on the ground floor that opens to the poolside.

The location couldn't better - not on the crowdy beach, but a bit away. Room was clean enough and quiet. we didn't use the sweeming pool because it was not a season, but it looked good. good place to stay.

The room was very clean and comfortable. I especially liked the location so close to the lake and we took lots of walks to enjoy the scenery. There was also a complimentary newspaper every morning. Great place to stay.

Room Tip: we were located in the 'inner court' and there was very little traffic noise.

Stayed here for a night to attend a concert. The inn was located only a few minutes drive to the venue (walking distance). It was very clean, comfortable, and quiet, and close to shopping and restaurants. We'll be back for our next trip to Penticton!
