Accommodation needed in Kelowna


We are planning on staying at Kelowna for one night in September en-route to Vancouver, I was going to book the Lake Okanagan but I saw it had a few dodgy reviews on here. I hoping someone could recommend somewhere that is pleasant, it does not need to 4/5* and not too expensive, looking to spend no more then $200/night.

Dear Katiemary, I have been hoping that someone with local knowledge would answer this one ... just wanted to say that we will be in Kelowna for 3 nights in August and have booked in at the Siesta Motor Inn - I choose this place because of its reviews in TA, the type of accommodation offered and it's location. It may be of interest to you

My parents live in Kelowna and whenever we visit, we always stay at the Holiday Inn Express. It's well located on Hwy. 97(the main hwy. through town), very pleasant staff, very clean, nice rooms, pool area and fabulous free breakfast every morning. It's about a 10-15 minute drive from the lakefront and downtown area depending on traffic. September should be a little less crazy on Hwy. 97 because Canadian kids are back to school then and "holiday" time is over.

Would you consider a bed and breakfast? Two years ago we stayed in the Barrel and Tank suite at Accounting for Taste B & B - http://www.accountingfortaste.ca/ The views from the hot tub were amazing and the huge breakfast was absolutely delicious...all for about $100 per night.

We stayed at the Travelodge on Abbott (1 block off Hwy 97 just over the bridge) last year and are headed there again next week. It's right across the street from City Park and if you have kids, the park has a playground, water park and access to beach and swimming. The hotel has free parking, a continental breakfast and a pool and small hot tub. Rates for a 1 Queen, 1 Double room in the summer run us $136/night.

Good middle-of-the-road properties would be places like the Holiday Inn Express, the Best Western and the Ramada. All of them are nice and well under $200 per night excluding taxes.

If you wanted some place more up-scale but also pricier, look into Manteo Resort. It is right on the lake and probably the nicest of the hotels on the lake.

Hi Katiemary,

The Lake Okanagan Resort (aka L.O.R.) is a very decent property. It is a bit older, however the property is right above the lake and offers the best view around.

However, with that said, the resort is located approx 25 minutes outside of town. Additionally, you will have to travel a very windy road to get to the resort. So if you had planned to take in any local activites, I wouldnt think this would be the place for you to stay.

Where will you be driving or flying in from? If you let me know, I would be happy to provide you with a listing of hotels/resorts...there are plenty to chose from.

If you don't mind driving in to town, then we just had a great stay at Altovista B&B. It is really quite luxurious, a beautiful property set near the vineyards, and breakfast was out of this world. All for about $150 per night. Balconies in the rooms had great views too.

I'm always very comfortable recommending the Siesta. It is motel level accomodation but the best of the motels along the Lakeshore Road. You can get a fairly cheap (I think about $15/person) shuttle to and from the airport.

Good luck.

I would suggest the Travel lodge right downtown Kelowna by the lake. Its reasonalble and part of a chain of hotels that are fairly priced and clean.
