“Best Value in Penticton”
Reviewed July 30, 2014

Found this little motel on Tripadvisor and was pleasantly surprised. Fair size room with fridge, coffee maker. Bathroom good size and very clean. Comfy bed, retro is the right way to describe the furnishing but it works.

Nice flower boxes all around and parking right in front of the room. Pool looked well kept and clean (although we didn't swim) and a BBQ area if you wanted to cook.

Right on a main road but you don't hear any traffic.
Great customer service upon check in/out. The only issue we had was the air conditioner didn't seem to work well, but when we told the front desk about it, he was unaware and said he'd look at it.
We would definately stay here again when we find ourselves back in Penticton.

Owners very welcoming.

Rooms are rather small, and relatively clean.

Strong '80s-'90s smell....could use a bit of "refresh"..

Bathtub drained slooooowly.

At 109$ for the night, for what you get, this is a poor quality-price value.

Ok, so its not the fanciest place I have ever stayed, but the owner is the most friendly and helpful motel owners I have met. I was attending a wedding in nearby Summerland and due to a last minute change of plans decided to stay in Penticton. We did not realize that there was a huge cycling event in town that was taking up most of the rooms at the local hotels. Fortunately I came across this little place and booked.

Because we were in a time crunch to get the room and get ready for the wedding I called ahead and asked if I could check in early. The owner was awesome and he let us check in at 1:00 pm which was very much appreciated.

Straight up honest, this is an older facility. That said, they take immaculate care of the outside. The parking lot leaves no questions and has designated parking stalls for the rooms. Beautiful flowers adorn the property and the swimming pool is well kept. Nearby there is a little area with patio tables and chairs and two BBQs for customers to use.

The room was definitely retro with the oldest fridge I think I have ever seen (picture wood panel mini-fridge) but it worked and was a nice surprise to have a fridge. The room was clean with the exception of one stain beside the bed. Overall not a deal breaker for me at all. My only complaints are that the lamps in the room did not work and the shower seemed to have a mind of its own and the water suddenly decreased to a trickle mid-shower.

I would not hesitate to stay here again. Customer service was top notch and the location was very good.

Room Tip: Second floor - be warned you have to take the stairs and they are a bit rickity.

Our first stay at the Swiss Sunset Inn was in 2003 and we have stayed here 7 times throughout the years. It is a quiet motel with a nice large pool, a sitting area where you can barbecue and best of all a relaxing atmosphere. When our summer vacations bring us to Penticton, we always stay here. We appreciate how Peter (the owner) keeps the grounds well kept and the rooms are clean and tidy. Any issues or problems we have had are fixed and dealt with immediately. We like that he has set quiet hours where the outside lights are dimmed and the No Vacancy sign is lit up so the current guests can sleep undisturbed.

I have stayed at the Swiss Sunset Inn many many times over the past 5 years. Peter and his staff go out of their way to make sure you are taken care of. I stay here not only for vacation but also during my regular business trips through out the year. The Pool is always perfect and the room are kept to a very high standard. Don't hesitate to spend time at the Swiss Sunset Inn!

Here for the annual bridge tournament. Things started out on a bad note when the manager wouldn't honor the rate he quoted last year. The place is barely adequate if you have low standards, but not anything I could recommend. The rooms are dirty and outdated, the "kitchen units" consist of a tiny stovetop with a mini fridge below, with a sink to the side. Pair this with bent or broken silverware, dirty dishes and glasses, no fry pan, and you get the picture.
