“Great Choice”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 30, 2014

We stayed at the Riverside Motel from July 12 - 19, 2014. Reservations were made online and was a very easy process. Our room had a kitchenette and seemed to be well stocked with the essentials. The room as always clean and the cleaning staff were flexible in accommodating our schedule. The air conditioning worked well too. The staff were very friendly and helpful. The motel's close vicinity to the beach, on Okanagan Lake, was only a five minute walk. I would definitely stay here again and recommend the Riverside Motel to family and friends.

The service was top notch. We arrived a week before there summer season opened, but they rushed to get the pool ready so we could enjoy it. The staff were very friendly and helpful. It is an older Motel, but is well cared for and clean.

I know I shouldn't be saying this as I want to kind of keep this place a secret and to myself for selfish reasons, however I must say that this is one of the best places I've ever stayed at.

Nick, and his family who run this place are such amazing people and I really feel will do anything to help you and your stay be better.

Riverside motel is situated only around 100 metres from the place where you launch your boat or iner tube for the float down the canal. The motel itself is cozy quaint and clean. Each room comes with a little kitchenette that comes fully stocked with everything you will need for cooking for yourself and or your family, including dishes and even a dish rack and dish soap for you to wash afterwards.

The motel includes amenities such as a pool ice maker and free wi-fi.

If you are going to stay in Penticton, there's no other place you should look.

We have stayed here a few times for vacations and have always had clean and spacious enough rooms. Nice to have the pool area, plenty of parking, kitchenette. Long time owner Nick keeps a quiet place so you can have a good rest without a lot of party people. This is not high end but if you are looking for a reasonably priced motel in a good location check them out. Book early for summer stays.

Nice Motel within walking distance to the lake. We spent the days mtn biking on kvr trail and the evenings relaxing in the pool. The pool is really nice and well maintained. The rooms are clean, not overly big but what you would expect in a motel. The kitchens were good and we picked up food from the local grocer and prepared them in the rooms. Overall we had a very good stay there , very good for the price.

We have stayed at the Riverside a number of times the past few years and always have found it to be great, especially the pool area. The rooms are good, clean and well maintained for an older motel. The kitchens could use an upgrade and more pots and pans. If you want to do a lot of your own cooking, I would advise bringing some of your own items. Other than that, a great place to stay.

Room Tip: Pool side if you can get them.

I loved that this motel was close to the beach without being on the noisy waterfront. It's also just across the street from Adventure Land and Coyote Cruises (the start of the channel). The motel also has a fantastic courtyard pool and we were lucky enough to have a room just outside it. There are picnic tables and chairs in the courtyard overlooking the pool, so we could spend our evenings reading out there. I only have a few small quibbles with the room itself: it was pretty cramped with a king size bed, there needed to be more indirect lighting - not just the overhead fluorescents which were terribly bright, and the air conditioner needs to be quieter. Otherwise, we'd definitely stay there again and the staff and management were really nice.
