Our family has been visiting this family orientated hotel for 13 years (and counting)! Every year we look forward to spending 2 weeks at this awesome motel. The owners and staff are incredibly welcoming and treat everyone like family. Great location, great amenities, great hospitality! The updated courtyard is awesome! Love the fire tables and BBQ sitting area! Thank you... More

This was the 3rd time we stayed at the Bowmont. We are a family of 5. Our kids are now 14, 12, and 10 and they won't let us leave without booking our time for next year. Dan, Christine, Sam, Mathew and the entire staff clearly have been told to make sure all the families have a great time at... More

Location was awesome!! The outdoor space was great, the pool and BBQ area were nice. The room was GROSS. For $205 per night I would expect a bit better. The pictures are of the furniture, I kept the chairs covered so we could sit on them. When I wiped the counter top around the edge, the cloth was black. The... More

Started planning this BC holiday as a follow up to our family reunion. The plan for the balance of the trip was to give my kids an Motel/Hotel version of the Okanagan holidays that I remember as a kid. Well Starting off in Epenticton did just that! The beach scene is still as I remember it and all the motels... More

I walked into room 106 and thought 'what is this?' Not pretty. But, after a walk through and an unload of all our stuff I realized it's clean, functional, and loads of storage! I was then greeted by at least 3 random staff members. We checked out the pool and court yard, which had lots of families hanging out. You... More

We recently stayed here for two nights and absolutely had a blast! We were on the bottom level facing the pool and spent most of our time poolside. Beds were comfortable and rooms were well-appointed. Retro kitchen table and wall hangings (retro in a good way). Super friendly and fun staff that really made you feel like you were home.... More

Dan and Christine, the owners, are so friendly and accommodating in every way. We love coming back every year and our children love the pool and hot tub. They loaned us beach towels as we had forgotten ours at home and went out of their way to ensure we were comfortable at every step of the way. We will be... More

Dirty sock at the foot of the bed, hair in our bed, strong smoke smell, urine smell in the carpet...... Service was friendly though! Free parking and close proximity to the canal were what lead us to book here. Too bad the "we're sorry about that" didn't make us feel much better about sleeping here. Definitely were not expecting 5... More
