This is a cute little place, very clean, owners very friendly and helpful. It has a common area in the middle to sit and relax, socialize if you want, and bbq's for your use. Great location for the Skaha Park - 5 min walk. Not a lot of restaurants in the area. There is one close by, Anthony's, but the reviews weren't good, so we took a cab downtown and had a great meal at Salty's.

As a young child, we camped at Penticton every summer. First in a tent, then a trailer. There is not another place I would rather be during summer. Now we stay at the Valley Star Motel with my family. This is a wonderful place to bring yourselves or with a family. It is safe, beautiful, well set up. The rooms have been upgraded and the owners of this motel, well - you could not get any better people or more accommodating than these two. The cleaning staff and grounds people do such a great job. You wake, never hearing a thing, to everything looking like it was out of a story book. The pool is clean and well taken care of. There are bbq in the courtyard to cook with. A cute, little playground for the young ones to play in. The air conditioners were welcomed - it was over 35 everyday we were there. You are minutes away from Skaha beach and water park, an ice cream parlour and a park. Will I be back? Yes, we have booked again for another year.

Room Tip: All the rooms are great. #28 is right off the pool.

Everything that has been said so far is true.
The hosts are super friendly and love a chat. The location is fantastic.
The rooms are in great condition.
Thanks trip advisor, I probably wouldn't have even stopped in if I was driving past.
I'm glad I did. In fact we ended up extending 2 more nights!

We loved our stay at the Valley Star Motel! This motel is pretty typical for the time it was built but the big difference is the way it has been maintained. There may be a few scuffs and older aspects but it was very clean (way better than any hotel we have stayed at in the last year and that is saying alot!) and is well maintained inside and out. Clearly the owners and staff have a lot of pride in their business. We found the pool to be clean and refreshing, the rooms comfortable, felt like it was a big family hanging out in the courtyard. We were impressed with the quiet considering we were on the end unit beside the road; we didn't even notice it. It was close to everything we wanted (beach, park, stores, ice cream shop :) ) The owners and staff were friendly, welcoming, and accomodated us perfectly! Loved our stay!

This motel is well located and well maintained. Owners are very accommodating and the beds are very comfortable. The only downside was the noisy air condioner. The only surprise was the "resort tax" on the bill. I do not recall any other hotels in the area charging this fee. All in all a nice place.

Dear Ms. Louise,thankyou for staying at Valley Star Motel and also your coments.We regret the air conditioner was not quiet and we shall defininately try to improve on that.We note your concern about the "resort tax". There is no such tax. Listed below is various taxes as mandated by provincial (state) and federal governments:-
Municipal Tax--( applicable to some municipaltiesand Penticton is one of them)
GST --Federal Sales Tax
PST ---Provincial sales and Room Tax

Ms Louise P,should you have any follow up concern re taxes charged,we would be pleased to hear from you as we we want to ensure total satisfaction for all our guests be it local or foriegn.
