  1. Great Location, Very Tired Motel

     (3 / 5)

    This was our first time staying at the Beachside Motel but we were familiar with the property before booking it. I knew going in that the property was pretty tired, but was genuinely surprised by the poor state of the room. The Good Stuffn- The location is amazing, especially if you’re wanting to spend most of your time at Skaha Lake. n- The rooms are a really good size (we were in a one bedroom suite). n- There’s a nice, shady patch of grass with tables and BBQs for guests’ use. n- The air conditioning worked really well. n- There are movies held outside for the little kids. n- Really good wifi (I was pleasantly surprised).n- The owner’s were really friendly. The Not Good Stuff:n- Our room was really dirty and unkept. When we arrived the cleaners had missed taking left over bathing suit from the bathroom that was hanging up. There were big stains on the carpet and couch (I refused to let my daughter play on the floor and couch without covering it). There were smudge marks and drips on cabinet and table sides, and obvious dust and dirt. n- The door was really hard to close and when I tried to put the chain lock on the door it fell off in our hands. We took it down to the front desk and they said someone would come up to fix it, but in the 3 nights we were there it was not fixed. n- The kitchen table was super wobbly and had already been fixed, but really needed to be replaced. n- TVs are very old and not great clarity. All in all it was a comfortable stay and, while the rooms were very tired, we would maybe stay there again. The owner mentioned that they’ve sold the business and will be switching hands at the end of the summer, so that will be part of our decision for future vacations.

  2. Nice location

     (3 / 5)

    Rooms are basic and a little dated but very clean. Take your own shampoo. We really liked the green area with picnic tables, barbeques and lawn chairs. Very nice to sit outside at night. Very close to Skaha Lake. Great place for families.

  3. Great family friendly motel

     (4 / 5)

    Although other family members have stayed at the Beachside Motel, this past August was my first visit. I loved it, just a very short walk to the beautiful beach at Skaha Lake and the motel definitely caters to children. Every night the owners set up a mini outdoor movie theatre complete with free popcorn and sometimes even ice cream. There are several BBQ’s on the grassy boulevard for the guests use and parents can feel safe allowing their children to bike and scoot around the property because everyone slows down knowing children are in the area. The units are basic but comfortable and clean and the owners are friendly and accommodating. I would recommend this motel to anyone looking for a family friendly place.

  4. home away from home

    i…we have been here a number of times and love it. ok, its a typical motel (3 minute walk to the beach, 20 second walk to a park), but the green space between the 2 motel rooms is fantastic with its ponderosa pines, tiny lights between and the comfy patio chairs (you could actually sleep in) makes this place a perfect place to stay for a night or week. we got a 1 bedroom with kitchenette and was great to make an easy din and keep drinks cool. the people here are also great and very personable with them tending to the front desk to the garden and love to chat. they are pet friendly, just can’t be left alone in the room, but dogs will love the cool grass anyways. for the kids they had movie night serving pop corn watching a disney movie outside…love it! will be back as usual every time we visit penticton

  5. Great Place For Families!

     (4 / 5)

    We have stayed here twice with our two boys and were very happy with it overall. Price is comparable to similar motels is Penticton. Big difference for us is that it is so well maintained! Owned and operated by a couple who care about their guests and it shows. When we first checked it, I noticed a big sticky spot on the floor in front of the fridge, as if a drink had been spilled. No big deal, sometimes things get missed. I mentioned it to the front desk and it was promptly cleaned up with big apologies! Cleaning staff did a great job:) The owner sets up a movie night for the kids every night complete with popcorn and slushies. Such a great break for exhausted parents! Gorgeous, well lit yard. Every morning we walked across the beautiful park to set up our beach spot. Easy, 5 minute walk to park, beach and awesome playgrounds. If you’re looking for luxurious accommodations, this probably isn’t the place for you. Furnishings are a bit outdated (but look new because they’ve been so well taken care of!) that kind of thing doesn’t concern us. If you are looking for a family friendly place to stay, this is it!

  6. Comfortable!

     (4 / 5)

    My significant other and I came to visit during the weekend and found it extremely close to the beach! We had everything we needed in the kitchenette suite. The only thing we were surprised about was that they don’t provide shampoo or conditioner although they provide plenty of soap. I would still choose this motel for convenience if I decide to visit Penticton again!

  7. My favourite place in the world

     (5 / 5)

    I have gone to the Beachside Motel for going on 37 years in a row. It is a place I look so forward to going to, and a place I hate to leave every year. John and Trudy, the owners , have always been so welcoming and kind. The rooms are clean, thank you to wonderful Amanda! There is a beautiful green space in the middle of the motel where everyone can gather doing the day and the evening, and barbeques to use. John and Trudy are always working so hard to keep this place look amazing. My highest recommendations go to this wonderful ‘home’ in the middle of the most beautiful part of Canada.
