The service was lacking and rude right from the office. Person checking us in needs a course in politeness and tact. It is over priced for what you get. Rooms are ok but that`s it. Nothing special at all. Won`t stay there again. No views, just off a busy road.

We arrived in summerland bc after being very disappointed at the busyness in kelowna. This motel had no staff but and extremely efficient registration system using a wall computer for check in. Our room was in the new part towards the back, away from the noise of the road. The room was almost new, well equipped and had a balcony. There was also a green area with chairs and table for sitting outside. Easy parking and very quiet. Slept well!

It was a little eerie to see no staff at all during our stay. But everything was there that we needed.

Room Tip: Choose a room towards the back of the hotel away from the road.

Clean, quiet, friendly service. Just what I expected. Lovely patio looking onto a grassy courtyard to have morning coffee. Easy to access from the highway. Nice sized room with ample sitting area and the mini-fridge made life easy.

Room Tip: Rooms at the back are quieter

I stayed for two nights on a work assignment in February and was pleasantly surprised about the quality, quiet, comfort and reasonable price of this motel. Check in (in February) was remotely through a machine, which was painless as instructions were taped to the glass window of the entrance door and phone calls to the motel number were answered in person by the manager. The motel is about 1km south of Summerland (in Trout Creek), a few minutes drive south from the Tim Hortons. I stayed in the new complex, which has large, well appointed rooms with balcony out the back to a small garden in between buildings. Although the motel is directly adjacent to Highway 97, the rooms in the new complex must have been built with soundproofing in mind - I didn't hear the traffic in my room and enjoyed quiet nights. I can highly recommend this motel to anyone needing a place to stay near Summerland.

Room Tip: I very much liked the new complex (south end) and would request this again next time.

It was such a pleasure to walk into the nicely furnished one bedroom suite - especially after a horrible experience at the Pleasantview Motel. The room was well-stocked for my five-week stay there: kitchen was spotless and had everything needed for making home-made meals and the bedroom had a comfortable king-size bed with five soft pillows and luxurious comforter. Sliding glass doors led from the bedroom to a little patio overlooking a cedar-hedge lined well maintained backyard where you could hardly hear the cars on the highway. My only regret was that I wasn't there earlier in the year and so could have taken advantage of the swimming pool.

The owners and staff were friendly and helpful, especially the very charming young man behind the reception desk who didn't hesitate to offer his help with anything I needed.

I was surprised a nice place like that would be so affordable. Would recommend it to anyone.

Been going to summerland for 3 years in a row. We've stayed at the expensive resort and prefer summerland motel over it.
The Staff are great and the accommodations are terrific. We brought friends from out of province to share our favourite vacation area and they were very impressed. We'll all be back. Nothing but good things to say about this place.

As others have stated, Hwy 97 roars past your door. We stayed in the newer part of the hotel and found it to be reasonably quiet...The room was nice, updated with a cheap chinese flatscreen. Had a small fridge with a small microwave and a desk/chair, sitting chair and loveseat. The air conditioner worked well and was not noisy - but we are seasoned travellers and always use earplugs. There is a nest of BBQs outside, but no real nice place nearby to buy a steak or whatever. You have to travel up or down 97 to find any shopping whatsoever.
The pool was so-so, located on a back alley. Had to fight off the ants. Really unimpressed.
Our "patio" had no access to the courtyard and gave us the impression of a small jail cell.

We rented this as a "manager's special" - it was hardly that for the buck sixty nine it cost us. $89 would have been more than fair.

So take from this what you will, but next time we will plan to give the town of Summerland a big pass. "Not much to see here folks, move along".

Room Tip: Rooms anywhere else were cheaper on our whole circle trip from Vancouver Island to Grand Forks, Wint...
