“It was okay”
Reviewed August 3, 2013 via mobile

The exterior needs a lot of work; extremely dirty.
The interior needs freshening up. The bed wasn't overly comfortable, the furniture has most likely been there since it first opened but the room was clean and the location can't be beat.
Will I stay there again? Probably not, as there looked to be much cleaner / fresher properties down the street. We only stayed one night - so it was okay...I wouldn't have stayed two.

My 9 year old granddaughter and I stayed here for a few days in July. She loved it ;-) Super friendly staff, excellent location across the road from the beach and walking distance to downtown and fun attractions such as mini-golf and the between lakes canal (which is a lot of fun!). The rooms are basic but a decent size and with a full kitchen. Only negative would be that the hide-a-bed was rather uncomfortable. All in all, though, excellent value.

stayed here for three days in July. The rooms were spacious and clean and the staff were very friendly and helpful. It is right across from the beach and easy walking distance to restaurants etc.
The indoor pool was basic but served the purpose well.It was great value and will be our preferred choice when stopping in Penticton.

Felt like we had stepped back in time when we entered this hotel. This hotel has all the original furnishings and fixtures from the 70's. I quite liked the retro feel - it will probably become a living museum in a few years!!

Big rooms and close to beach. Clean and comfortable. Great base for holiday.

Stayed 2 nights en route to the Rockies. What a lovely town plenty to do & see. Handy for the wineries. Hotel was opposite the beach, staff were courteous and helpful. Room was clean & comfortable with all the facilities you need, cooker, fridge, utensils and crockery etc. Handy laundry so you can pack less.also has an indoor pool

We stayed at this motel for three nights in May. The reception staff were courteous, the room very clean and quiet. The kitchen area had been renovated fairly recently and the bathroom and flooring re-tiled. The furniture was adequate for our party of four - two adults, two children. The motel is located right across from the beach and there are restaurants really close by. The downtown area is about a five minute walk. We enjoyed the indoor heated pool - very warm - extra towels are provided for the pool. There were even beach toys for our children to enjoy! Older style but very charming. Excellent value.

My sisters, daughter, grandaughters and niece and I enjoyed a pleasant "girls weekend" right across the street from the beach. The room was not fancy, but comfortable and staff was very friendly and happy oblige our requests for more and more towells for so many girls! We had a cute little patio area to enjoy the lake view with our morning coffee

Room Tip: Choose the suite in the front of the hotel for the lake view
