“lakeside review”
Reviewed February 25, 2013

Was there for a Pool Tournament mid February 2013. Room was large but slightly dated. Had to request additional towels and coffee as we had 4 in the room. Heater Unit noisy.Reservation was recorded incorrectly but corrected at no charge. Have to watch to make sure of the dates you require.If its a busy week-end you should reserve at on site restaurants as we had no where to eat on the night we arrived. Sufficed with room service. Feel the reservation staff should make clients aware of restaurant limitations.

Room Tip: Best view would be lakeside.

My fiance and I just spent the last three nights at Penticton Lakeside Resort and really enjoyed our stay. We flew in from Calgary and arrived at the hotel around 11am. The person at the front desk was able to find us a room so that we could check-in early and not have to wait until 3pm. I really appreciated that since we were on our way out to meet my relatives and just wanted to get checked in so we could enjoy the rest of the day without interruption. We ended up with a room with a view of the lake which was nothing short of spectacular. The room itself was large with a balcony (a little too cold to sit on in February!), a king-size bed, a loveseat, coffee table, chair, two night stands, a desk, a bar fridge and a dresser. The TV was flat screen and had a variety of channels. The bathroom was also large and the whole room was extremely clean. Robes were provided as well as a coffee pot and some coffee (not great). So room wise, we were very pleased. The only down-side, which could not be controlled by the hotel, is that the doors to the rooms automatically shut very quickly and loudly. So if a person is not careful to close it slowly, it slams shut with a loud bang. Unfortunately we had people on our floor who were not considerate enough to think about those around them and let doors slam well into the night. That was only one night and speaks to the people that were staying there, not the hotel.

The Casino is quite large, had lots of slot machines, a bar area with some to-go food and drinks and a couple of blackjack tables. I did pretty well there, but my fiancé did not. Just the luck of the draw! I had a great time.

As for restaurants, we dined at the Bufflehead and had the lobster fest which was on that weekend. Yum!! A lobster dinner and a beer for $25! It was great, but is not offered on the regular menu. However, my Mom had a meal from the senior’s menu which she really enjoyed. For $10 she could get a salad and pasta dish, which they had 8 or 10 to choose from. We went to the Hooded Merganser for drinks only so I cannot comment on the food, but wow, the view was fantastic. It is a separate building apart from the hotel on the edge of the water. It was lovely and relaxing.

Parking is $5 a day and they give you a pass and add it to your bill.

There is a pool but we did not go so I cannot comment.

Check-out was a breeze and the person at the front desk was friendly and helpful.

I would not hesitate to stay here again.

Room Tip: Try to get a room with a view of the lake. It is lovely.

My wife and I spent four days in this hotel. Our room's view of the lake was outstanding The room was very clean and very comfortable. The only suggestion I would have is that there should be a grab bar in the bath/shower to assist seniors or disable persons. The hotel has a green program which they provide a $10 credit to be used in the hotel for each day you do not use maid service.
We had an opportunity to eat in the hotel's three restaurants. We found the food and service outstanding in all three restaurants.
Our activities did not allow us to hit the Casino, so we will save that for our next visit.
We lucked out with the weather, it was very cold but sunny and made our trip that much more enjoyable. There is covered parking so snow in the winter is not a problem for your parked car.
I would suggest booking a lake view room as opposed to the city view rooms.
I certainly recommend a stay at this hotel.

I have spent a few visits in this hotel and have always enjoyed it. The kids have come with us as well and enjoyed it also. The pool is a little ways to travel and down a corridor which takes any type of ambiance out of the setting--but the kids don't care!
Rooms are nice, and on one special occasion had a corner room which was nice and big with a ton of room in it.. overlooking the lake!

Room Tip: Pool is a bit of a hike to get to.. having to go through the corridor where people come into the hot...

The resort is on a gorgeous location. Please request lake view rooms as opposed to city view.
Room is clean. Breakfast with roomservice is a must try. Staff is friendly.
I visited in the winter so not much to do on the lake (too cold), however it must be gorgeous in the summer. Another tip: please try Lachi indian restaurant down the road. Good Indian food if you are into Indian food.

I spent 6 nights at the Lakeside resort on a recent business trip and couldnt have enjoyed it more.
First its hard not to love Penticton..even in the snow and cold.
I can only imagine the summer and being on the water.
The city slogan is a place to stay forever..and you just may
The Lakeside offers it all.
Comfortable rooms..although a little hard to adjust the heat.
Also be sure to ask for a room near the elevator for best WiFi
However from restaurants..to pool..fitness room..you couldnt ask for more.
And if you like to gamble..there is a casino with a wide variety of slots.. and some
table games too
Right on the Okanagan Lakefront..and downtown is just a short walk away.
Drink some wine..enjoy one of the sunniest cities in Canada.. it couldnt be any better whatever time of year.

My wife and I stayed on the 6th floor facing the parking lot for 5 nights. The room was very clean and quiet. We were both very impressed with the fitness centre and the restaurants on site. The principal reason for me writing this review however, was the friendly helpfullness of the various staff there. In particular Denise Mason (Front Desk); and Steve & Lauren from the Hooded Merganser provided outstanding service. It was so good to see that people still went above and beyond to assist their customers. I really loved the location and the "one-stop shopping" venue for a geat night's sleep; great meals; entertainment (bar/club/casino) and downtown central location. Overall, we had an outstanding stay an look forward to our next visit.

Don M.

Room Tip: Go with the side facing the parking lot.
