Nice little place right near Skaha Lake & beach. Rooms are clean and good value. Bring extra pillows if you like 2. Pretty popular place for families, can be loud. Not for a quiet couples retreat, but if you are beach bound it is perfect!

Probably the cleanest property of this type we've been in for a long time! We biked 60 km from Kelowna to Penticton and were very happy with our choice of accomodation! We had not seen the Waterfront Inn before our trip. Peter and his wife are great hosts! I would highly recommend them!

We stayed here again for the 4th year this past summer (2015.) As always, the property is very clean and well kept. The location is unbeatable. The owners and staff are extremely friendly and outgoing. You will not regret staying at this hotel! The rooms are reasonably priced when considering what you get - great value.

Food is always great. Pool and beach front is awesome. Has movies for kids during the summer and the staff are great. Wish I chose this spot instead of walnut beach in Osoyoos. Lovely in the summer and a great place for the winer.

Spotless, quaint, comfy, well kind hearted front desk gentleman, love the location - cross the grassy park and right there on the lakefront. Nice picnic tables outside of every room on the bottom floor, $92 all in, can't beat the price. I'll stay there again.

We only stayed one night in the waterfront Inn, but we will surely come back! The suite was very clean and although we did not use the kitchenette, it was very well stocked. The bed was super comfortable. The location, right across from the park and the beach can't be beat! This was a lucky find!

It is such a nice and relaxing place to stay. Rooms are really clean and well kept. Peter is very friendly and always chats and jokes with his customers. This is the 3rd time we stayed here and will always come back.

Stayed for a mix of business and pleasure. The Peach Festival was on during my stay but the Skaha Lake area remains more family orientated and quiet. Location is steps from the beach and park across the street. The owner is very friendly and informative. Two level motel (have to haul luggage up narrow stairs). The room I stayed in... More

Our family have been staying here since my daughter was 3 years old and is now 17. We too strongly disagree with the comment posted Peter being an "Apathetic Owner". He has been a very sweet, kind, caring, accommodating and welcoming person towards my family. Every summer my husband, myself and our 4 children always look forward coming to Penticton... More

We have stayed here for eight days, three years in a row. We strongly disagree with the previous poster's “Apathetic Owner” remarks. She should have booked and found out first hand what a great stay she missed! It's an excellent location across from the best and warmest swimming lake in the Okanagan. And Penticton is a cute city with lots... More
