“Excellent outdoor pool!,”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed June 29, 2014

Very nice rooms, exceptional front desk staff, outstanding outdoor pool! My only negative is the overrated and overpriced food in the restaurant. Carrot ginger soup was like hot orange maple syrup, the rosemary ranch dressing was too strong-leaving a bitter taste, the steak was over cooked. I would recommend this hotel, and will return for another stay on my next trip, but I don't recommend the restaurant. Too bad, as everything else was wonderful.

Room Tip: Poolside rooms a must!!

I had the pleasure of staying overnight at the Podollan Inn on Jun 23, 2014. I wish I'd had more time to spend there. It is a lovely oasis! The room was comfortable and spacious and had all of the amenities I desired! The pool is amazing and there are walking trails a step out the front door. I also had dinner and brunch at the restaurant and all of the food was delicious. I'd recommend this to anyone spending time in the area!

On arrival we were met by a very helpful and courteous receptionist. Our English Bulldog fell in love with the expansive grounds, and I appreciated the Doggie Stations and supplies - very pet friendly facility. Restaurant had experienced computer problems but still found a way to provide us a great room service meal. Will stay here again in future!

Room Tip: As highway is nearby and not all truckers avoid use of their noisy braking system, south facing room...

Right on left side as you enter salmon arm heading west. Hidden Gem for sure. we were upgraded to a 'motel' room which worried us. but this is the place to be. main floor pool level. the most amazing warm pool. huge and every room opens on to a private landscaped patio with a gate to the pool and pool is outside each room and then opens to a large pool near the back.. warm even on a cold day. rooms clean and new. fair breakfast but stay for the Room not the food. cheap price as well.

Room Tip: pick a motel pool room on the ground floor if you want easy access. so relaxing and private.

The Podollan in Staff we very nice and accommodated my extra requests without hesitation. The rooms were very clean and the beds were extremely comfortable. We stayed in a room that had a little patio off the back that had direct pool access, what a treat. If you are looking for a place to stay in Salmon Arm I highly recommend this place. Clean, Friendly and comfortable. The perfect get-a-away.

We were there for the salty dog big race in may. The rooms were clean and comfortable. The pool area was fantastic, it felt like a Resort holiday. The rates seemed fairly reasonable and they provided a bike wash for the riders to use.

Room Tip: We stayed in the motel section, it was a little more dated, but close to the vehicle for convenience...

Thanks for a great weekend. Travelled with my mom and niece for a family gathering. Room was a good size and easily accomodated the cot for my niece. It was great to have the sitting area and the big chair as we were able to all be comfortable. The staff at the front desk were friendly and assisted us when needed. i would definitely stay again.

Room Tip: We had a room with 2 queens in the main building.
