“Great stay right across from beach!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 19, 2013 via mobile

We stayed here aug 5-7 and had a pleasant experience. We had room 112 which has a kitchenette with a nice size fridge and apt size stove. Bathroom is a bit tiny but we weren't in the room much for it to be a concern! Bed was comfortable enough and had a great air conditioner in it. We liked the fact that all we had to do is cross the road and there was the beach! There are a few attractions to see as well as a few restaurants on the strip. Around the corner a ways there is a steakhouse which was delicious. A small downtown is withing walking distance with stores , coffee places and a couple more restaurants. Take the canal between the two lakes for a relaxing fund couple hours! The best part about this hotel is its location on Okanogan lake far superior I think as compared to lake Skaha at the other end of the canal. At the end of the day you can take a nice stroll along the walkway running along the beach and lakeshore dr. If you are expecting a hoytee toytee hotel this is not the place for you it is more a motel style! Perfect for the average family Just looking for a relaxing place with easy access to beach and no expectations! That being said my room was clean, comfy and very spacious at a comparable price given the season!

Stayed lately during September. Loved the location. The unit was recently remodeled and very comfortable, and clean. Right on the beach, lots all around nearby. Have stayed there many times, summer, fall, and winter, and have always been pleased. Pool was warm and clean.Terrific in the summer, close enough to commute to Apex in the winter. Most units have a pool view, the others are lake view.

Just got back from staying here for a week. Now it's not the most UP-TO DATE place to stay however the people here are wonderful. The veiw is spectaular, many nights we sat on our balcony and watched all the happenings from our room. The beach just steps away.

The pool was heated beautifully, it was well maintainred and clean.

This place is perfect so much so we have already booked again for next year.

We stayed here based on many positive comments....the location can't be beat but that's about all I can say....beds were like bricks. The room looked clean but our feet were black within a very short time. There were no towel bars near the sink so the towels had to lay on a dirty counter. Basically it was not clean, it was not comfortable, there was no storage, ancient fixtures . We will go back to penticton, but not here

The rooms are old and out dated but clean. To be able to stay right on the lake in prime season for so little, it was great. The people were super nice and very accommodating. If you just need a place to sleep and be in the center of all the action for a penny, this is the place. Wonderfully people.

Love this place for the service, cleanliness and location. Every year we add more people to our group and enjoy meeting the same visitors each summer. Heidi and all the staff go above and beyond to make our vacation wonderful. We are heading back again this week and we can't wait! Look forward to seeing you again Heidi.

I stayed here last summer with my family. It has a great location across from the beach with lots of restaurants within walking distance. The staff is nice and friendly and the rooms are nice and clean. Great place for a summer get away!
