Ideal Motel & Location for Health Trip
I would strongly recommend this motel, particularly to anyone looking for a place to stay in the Okanagan for health reasons. As “Canada’s only desert”, it’s a dry environment that is ideal for anyone getting away from allergies or for other health-related reasons – it’s an excellent place for a “locations effect” experiment.
I stayed here for 2 weeks this fall after carefully doing my homework beforehand. This motel is exactly as advertised on their website – not one unpleasant surprise. The buildings and grounds are meticulously maintained. You can’t beat the location right on the beach with its view directly north onto the lake – a view that each unit has. The second floor units have balconies that provide your own outdoor space, a very nice plus. The units have a full-sized fridge, stove and well-equipped kitchen. Everything is absolutely clean, including the dishes, cutlery, pots & pans. After one week, housekeeping came in, which was just the right timing. It’s easy to sweep up after yourself given the ceramic floors and so you really don’t need daily housekeeping (although you can opt for it separately if you wish) and then you are not disturbed at all. I am sensitive to chemicals and so the unit was aired out for me before my arrival – no scented air fresheners required.
If you are female and staying on your own, you feel added security because the owners live on the property as well. Brent and Sherry are just fantastic, as is their staff. They are professional, friendly and infinitely helpful, incredibly hard-working. When they say you’re considered family, they mean it!
The other guests were respectful of one another and so the atmosphere was very comfortable and relaxed. I met guests who have returned annually for 8 years, and I heard of others who were also staying for health reasons. If I ever get the chance to return, I will.
