The BBQ/sitting area was beautiful. Right next to the pool so you can watch your little ones play while you relax under a canopy.
Prós: The staff was amazing. Very friendly right from the beginning to me and my daughter. The common area is fantastic way to bring fellow vacationers together and have a good time, when usually people tend to stick to their own thing.
Prós: Close to park and lake. Full kitchen. Quiet location. I was there on business but I'd take my family there on holiday next summer, especially with new pool and courtyard complete.
Contras: Pool under construction off season, but only during day while away.
Great motel for families, close to beach and other amenities at a reasonable price. Older, but clean and well-cared for rooms.
Prós: Great location, quiet, friendly
Contras: Could hear people walking around in room above.
Prós: Fantastic visit! Great location and the kitchenette has the array of kitchen tools one actually uses! Walking distance to the Channel, for a float, and close to Okanagan Lake beach. A 10 min drive to Skaha Lake beach and close to a great running path
Overall a good trip!! The common areas and owners are really nice! Very handy to have a full kitchen, rooms are almost set up like little apartments. They were very clean! Location was great! We were up there to do some beer and wine tastings and didn't have to drive anywhere, we were able to walk the whole time. There is quite a few places to eat in walking distance as well as some pubs/clubs. The lake is stunning and at your doorstep. The channel as well as adventure park are across the street and beside the SS Sicimus marine museum. Lots to do nearby or if u want to do nothing grab a chair at the pool. Awesome either way!
Prós: Pool and BBQ area was great! Location was perfect, close to everything and just off both the lake and channel. Owners were very friendly and accomadating.
Contras: The beds could have been a little softer with a few more pillows (they were available if requested though)
Prós: Served our needs well. Front desk lent us a toaster, which helped us for breakfast! The pool was a godsend, since it was in the high 30s the whole time.
Contras: We had to keep the bikes in the room for safety, so it was quite cramped. Staff did not always replace items when they cleaned, so we had to ask for tea and sugar.
Contras: price a bit high considering better hotels' prices not much more
It was as advertised,close to skaha lake,pool and bbq,rooms were clean and air conditioned. Could use some updating, but all in all a positive experience. Priceline should note that there is no opportunity to input 'special needs' on your web page.(ie: problem with stairs etc.)
Contras: Our room was in the corner on the backside with a view of the parking lot and the side of an apartment building.
Prós: I like the place, the breakfast and everything.
Prós: The rooms were very comfortable and clean. The Beds were extremely comfortable and the area was very quiet at the time we were there. The staff were very friendly and helpful with information for what ever you wanted.
Contras: The water took a long time to warm up when you turned the tap on to have a shower or wash.
Prós: Nice room, clean, big TV, good breakfast included, 2 swimming pools, friendly staff
Contras: Was like an oven when we walked in. No choice of thin or thick pillow. Parking was exteemly tight
Prós: Ground level court yard access. Nice to get fresh air into the room, and be able to wander around outdoors, even in the winter!
Contras: Was sorry that the central station pub was closed for renovations
Prós: We had 2 patios off of our room which was nice to have our meals at.
Contras: The room did not have a microwave which I was surprised, we used the fridge and made food which worked well with a fridge.
Prós: Pool & Hot tub were nice. Patio & Courtyard were good too. Beds were comfortable.
Contras: Cleanliness/housekeeping could be improved. Microwave has to be rented.
Meets a three star rating.
Prós: Excellent location to convention centre and arena. Restaurant at location.
Contras: The main door to the room needs adjustment.
Prós: We were satisfied with the room and amenities in it.
Contras: The restaurant is not good and the coffee we had for breakfast was really awful. One would think that the Ramada could provide coffee of excellent quality in this day and age. Free doesn't cut it - we'd gladly pay for a great cup of coffee!
Prós: The location was near the beach.Staff were friendly and efficient.The room was nice and clean.
Contras: The general finish in the room (tile, paint, wallpaper) was lower than the price suggested.
Prós: the location to areas we where interested in, the grounds where well kept
Contras: the table lamp was out and I noticed the cord was unplugged so I moved the bed to plug it back in it was very dirty under the bed
Prós: I liked the location of the hotel and the staff were friendly.
Contras: I did not realize that I would be charged in American dollars until after I booked the hotel. I am going through treatment for Breast Cancer and really needed to get away for a small holiday. I was happy to be able to have a week end away.
Prós: Kettle Valley Station Pub has excellent food. The property is kept up nicely. Beautiful property.
Contras: Too many screaming kids in the pool unsupervised and we waited for over 2 hours to get into the hot tub due to the 14 kids who wouldn't make room for new guests and no parents in sight. We left without taking a dip.
Prós: Awesome room, view, balcony, clean
Prós: The staff were nice and the room comfortable. I felt safe and I'd stay there again.
Prós: The suite had two separate bedrooms, meaning one guest did not have to pass thtough the other sleeping area to reach the bathroom. There is a guest laundry, which we used.
Prós: Nothing, room was dirty, bedding not changed. When I turned back the sheets you could see they had not been changed. There was hair on the sheets. Bathroom had used soap and shampoo in it. There was no new soap bar. There was a used juice container in thse sink. I was not able to speak to the front desk as they had closed for the eveing. Very disappointed. The web site pictures show a resort style hotel, however, this is not factual. The web site is very misleading.
Prós: The location was great and the noise from the street was not noticeable When you could find staff some were helpfull
Contras: The staff were poorly trained on the knowledge of there city and could not fill requests for basic needs
Prós: Close to the beach and very reasonable. My first trip to Penticton and if I return I would definitely book with Tiki shores.
Prós: Location! Beautiful beach across the street. Outdoor pool/barbeque. Walking distance to good restaraunts/casino. Bicycle and boat rentals nearby.
Contras: Short-staffed on cleaning - so dirty floor when we checked-in.
Prós: The location was highly convenient to everything; across the street from the great beach on Lake Okanagan as well as near shops, restaurants and great kids' activities. Also, relative to Penticton beachfront summer prices our one bedroom suite with full kitchen facilities was a good value for the money. Moreover, Paul, a staff member, was extremely friendly, responsive and helpful as he seemingly ran all over the property in an effort to do everything for everyone and oversee staff.
Contras: Having worked extensively in the hospitality industry myself when younger, I tend to be empathetic but - unfortunately - the woman who checked us in was the polar opposite of Paul in terms of being rude, acerbic and condescending. It started when I was confused about the credit card intake machine as I am American and not used to the chip system now apparently standard with Canadian credit cards. Accordingly, I was reprimanded for withdrawing my card too soon. I think she had had a rough day, but that is not an excuse. Paul stepped forward and seemingly tried to offset the unpleasantness.
Also, the bed was a roller bed and not very comfortable and, while the suite did have AC, it was inadequate relative to the space of the unit as the cool air did not reach the bedroom. The first two days were much warmer than average but still. Overall, I will rate this a 3 star due to the relatively solid value that $80 U.S. a night represents for the time of year and location - otherwise it would be a 2.
Great staff, very friendly and helpful. We appreciated the staff having three rooms together so my extended family could be very close by. Thank you so much for the great hospitality and friendliness, we very much appreciated the kindness and service of this property. Nat & Lisa Pasqua - Vancouver, BC Canada.
Prós: A great place to stay, excellent and friendly staff. Great rate on short notice and really made for a pleasant trip.
Prós: Location was great.
Contras: Pool and hot tub not working. It was the May long weekend! No chance at checking out at noon, even though it was on a Monday morning of a long weekend.
Prós: It's location to the channel and beaches as well as its delicious breakfast
Contras: Ice machine didn't always work
Prós: Location and room amenities
Prós: Everything was great. Staff were courteous
Prós: Excellent location, right at the start of the strip. Staff was great, everyone is constantly working and cleaning. Continental breakfast was awesome for the kids.
Contras: The gym
Prós: location amenities, environment,
Prós: nice size room
Contras: the bed was a wee bit too hard
Prós: everything was great.
Prós: Rooms were clean
Contras: As a hockey team travelling, we used the breakfast room to serve pizza for team and gather as adults - continually harassed to leave the room even tho it was early inn evening - 730pm - same behaviour nite before. No reason given.
Prós: Very good helpful staff.
Contras: Breakfast was a bit sparse.
Prós: The room had a great patio that looked into an inner courtyard with trees, grass, splash park and pool. Really nice.
Contras: The shower faucet is way too low.
Prós: Good location. Nice facilities.
Contras: The rooms were a little dark. More light would help.
Prós: Loved the size of the room; and having a back door to the pool.
Contras: We had people with children above us so a lot of banging, crying. Also, pool area needs more chairs and the water was ice cold.
Contras: Disappointing experience. The room was disturbingly unclean (with urine on the bathroom floor and unwashed towels), the lights didn't work, and I could hear all of my neighbors' moves through the thin walls. I would not recommend this dumpster even to a homeless person.
Prós: It's in a good spot if you are looking for a water front place, the price is reasonable,I stayed only over night but could see staying three or four to enjoy what the area as to offer.
Prós: They have BBQ's you can use for free! I wish it was on their website or under "amenities" as it would have been great to know in advance!
Right across from the beach and some firepits that are communal use. It's also right near the downtown street (about 10 minutes walk) and go eat breakfast at The Bench! (15 min walk). Delicious food and well worth the trek!
The last staff member we talked to on check-out was great!
Contras: Can only get the front desk between 8-10. Being early risers about 7am we were looking for the wifi password. Apparently there is a router in every room which no one told us on check in.
I went and asked one of the staff about a good place to eat dinner and was recommended "Denny's". Even when I said we weren't a fan didn't offer any alternatives. I'm not a fan of visiting a new place and hitting up chain restaurants. Have some local cuisine suggestions! Support your community!
Salty's is a PHENOMENAL beach-front seafood (primarily) restaurant just a few properties down. We were later told by a local some other good restaurants: Saigon's is good Chinese, La Casa Ouzeria is great Greek and the Pasta Factory.
Prós: Great location, excellent staff, clean facilities, very pleased with my stay, worth my money, planning another stay soon.
