The operators of this property must really love their hotel, beacause it's obvious they've worked very hard to keep this property in top condition. In fact, on my first day, I saw a worker carefully placing ornamental gravel around one of trees in the parking lot.
The rooms are large & clean, and all feature a flat screen TV and oh so important refrigerator. The big bonus is that all rooms facing the (beautiful) lush grassed courtyard all have huge PATIOS to enjoy the beautiful Okanagan weather. Beds were the old-style "bedspread" type but were comfortable and featured both thick and thin pillows. Rooms also have a sitting table, dresser, and extra large wardrobe.
The toilet and bathtub are located separately from the sink (which is actually near one of the beds). I found the air conditioning slightly inadequate. The room eventually got cool enough, but took about 1/2 hour to do so (instead of the usual 10 - 15 minutes).
One big advantage to this hotel are the two pools (one large outdoor and one smaller indoor) PLUS a small waterpark for the kids, tweens, and teens. The hotel has a very small fitness room with a treadmill, universal gym, and a recumbent bicycle. There are also two internet stations in the lobby.
Other than toasted items (breads, bagels, and English muffins), the complimentary breakfast did not feature any hot food. Cereals, fruit cocktail, hard-boiled eggs, mini muffins, small danishes, coffee, tea, juices, and 2% milk were available. The breakfast room was more than adequate, and also featured a TV tuned to a news channel. Hours of breakfast were 6:00 - 10:00 AM.
My group room rate (we had 10 rooms) was $89 per night, which I thought was good, especially since the hotel is a 5 - 7 walk from the beautiful Okanagan Lake beach.
Our group was a sports team, and many teams use this hotel. Kids being kids, they will "explore" the hotel and play games (sometimes loudly). To avoid most of the noise, pick a 2nd floor room (provided you don't have mobility issues, as there is no elevator) to avoid the sound of those little feet above you.
Bottom line, great family hotel providing good value.
