Penticton Lakeside Resort & Conference Centre
Ranked #8 of 43 Hotels in Penticton
Reviewed December 7, 2013

This is a good hotel. The rooms are almost ready for another refreshment but they are still good and you cannot beat the location - right on the Lake. The rooms are clean; service is good; staff are very nice; the hotel restaurants are destinations themselves - from fine dining to pub food at its best. We have generally stayed here during Ironman races at the end of August and most recently, for Challenge Penticton. Management and staff are extremely tolerant of athletes bringing bicycles (generally rather expensive ones) into their rooms. Cookies and apples or peaches every night before bed and this trip, we received a lovely bottle of wine for return customers. It worked! We will keep coming back!

Room Tip: The lake views are nice so go for it!

I've stayed here multiple times, due to having medical appointments in Penticiton. They have a FANTASTIC medical rate.

I love that they have three different places to eat, with fantastic food in each :-) Casino right on sight, as well as a pool and a spa... Everything you need!

Rooms are clean, and spacious, but I wouldn't spend extra to see the view.

We were here for 3 nights, and found it clean, quiet, and in good shape. Sure someone cut a one foot hole in the wallpaper in the hall, but otherwise well kept up. I thought the bed was great! The convention food was excellent. I have a gluten allergy and was very impressed. Everything except for two desserts were gluten free, and their substitutes were wonderful. We stay here every 3 or 4 years, and I look forward to our next trip here. I enjoyed the Halloween decorations...Dated? I guess I'm getting old. I thought it was a pretty classy place, just not quite five stars.

The Lakeside is centrally located and, as the name implies, right on Okanagan Lake. The staff was friendly, the room was small but clean and the fitness facility was good. With the Hooded Merganser restaurant on site it is a convenient stay. The hotel is showing its age but is well maintained.

Stayed here two nights for a conference being held at the hotel; received a very good corporate rate and am so very happy about that, because there were definitely some issues. Nothing serious, but not what one would expect for $250 or so a night.

First off, the beds are horrid. Hard and uncomfortable. Lots of pillows were supplied, possibly to make up for the awful mattresses?

Cleanliness was fair to middling; the place looked a bit tired, and the sheets on one bed were paper thin, with little rips from over-wear. Had a bath but had to clean the tub first - there was what looked like soap scum floating in the water when I first started to fill it, so had to try again. Yuck.

Internet was slow & sporadic, kept having to reconnect.

VERY noisy. We were on the parking lot side, on the 5th floor, and slamming car doors & conversations were extremely loud until the wee hours. And terrible to complain about such a thing, but even the fountain noise was intrusive when our patio door was open, which it was until we went to bed, because the room was very stuffy. Could hear noises from the floor above (including bathroom activity) plus anything going on in the hallway was very loud in the room.

On the plus side, the staff was very pleasant and friendly through out our stay. Used room service twice; the second time our order was not as requested, but we decided to just go with is versus the hassle of correcting. The food from room service (Barking Parrot restaurant, if I remember correctly) was all right but very average - definitely not gourmet. A bit overpriced for what we received, but not outrageously so.

The place in general is a bit of a mix. Public areas - lobby, conference room, restaurant - are nicely decorated and attractive. Rooms are a decade or two out of date, and the mattresses need a serious updating.

Didn't set foot in the Casino, so no opinion there!

My recommendation would be to go somewhere else if you are looking for peace and quiet and comfort. A very average facility, not in line with the promotion on the website and the room rates.

My wife and I stayed one night this October as Penticton was a central location for our wine tour. The hotel, being right on the beach, is well located and has excellent views if you pay their small upcharge for a lakeside room. However we found the hotel very dated and in need of significant upgrading to make one's stay enjoyable.
Specifically, the carpets in our room were so old and soiled that we only felt comfortable walking around with our socks on, the air conditioner/heater was extremely noisy and cycled constantly, the TV had very few channels, some of which didn't even work, and the room door cards continually had to be re-programed to open the door.
We ate at the Bufflehead Tapas room and were very disappointed in our meal. We both had veal which was accompanied by so much pasta that it was hard to find the plate and even though there was only a half dozen tables occupied had obviously sat for quite a while before being served. We both requested that the meal be re-heated and even then it came back cold.

Saying all this I don't know how many better choices there are to stay in Penticton, as most of the accommodation seems to be older type motels fronting on one of the two lakes.
On our next trip we will be taking the time to search out a bed and breakfast on the Naramata Bench, or stay in Kelowna at the Grand Okanagan, Vernon at Preditor Ridge, or Osyoos at the Watermark..

Stayed overnight on Thanksgiving week-end. Didn't want to pay extra for a lakefront view; had a room on the 4th floor but still heard noise from the parking lot. Like other reviewers, I agree the mattresses need replacing and it's very difficult to adjust the room temperature if not impossible.
In our room, the carpets were stained badly and should be replaced.
It was pretty much a plain jane room with a high price tag.
Would not consider staying there again.
The only convenience was it is attached to the casino.
