We stayed in Lakeside Villa Motel for two night in July. This is probably the best motel (rooms actually do not have a motel feeling to it) we have stayed in British Columbia and we travel a good bit. We stayed in one bedroom suite and loved it. Rooms and bathroom are spotless, kitchen is very well stocked. The rooms are not very big, but absolutely sufficient size. As to hospitality and service, it is as good as it gets. Kim and Keith should teach other managers and owners; any request we had (and we travel with three kids, so we usually have a few) was fulfilled very quickly, efficiently and with a smile. They even gave us tubes and Keith dropped us to the tubing station which saved us a few bucks on the rent. Generally, accommodation in Penticton is not cheap including this motel, but they offer some of the best rates. Location is great, beach across the road and we prefer Skaha lake to Okanagan lake. Continental breakfast was what you expect from continental breakfast - coffee, muffins, toasts, fruits, coffee, etc. BBQ facilities in the backyard, we did not use those, but it is something nice to have. Water smells a bit because it comes from the well, at first children mentioned it, but got used to it very quickly. The window in the living room does not open and air conditioning can be a bit noisy, but it did not bother us and I am just being fussy. Generally, it is a great place with great people, we are going to Penticton again in August and did not have to think where to stay, it is an obvious choice. Everybody in the family loved it and thank you very much for our great stay.
