First time visitor looking for central hotel recommendation

Hello all,

I will be a first time visitor to your city coming un at the end of june and i was hoping to find a decent hotel close to where all the action is and within walking distance of many restaurants for ~$250/nt or under.. can anyone make some recommendations? also, where can we go for a decent bite to eat?? not looking for fine dining, we are more into steaks, burgers, pastas, bar food type of variety. thanks in advance.

In the downtown core you may want to check out the Travelodge on Abbott St. Close to many restaurants, casino, pubs and City park. Click on Kelowna Hotels and check reviews, price and location. Have fun.

I have stayed at the Abbott Street Travelodge several times - can't beat the location! The rooms are your standard motel room - nothing fancy, but clean, and breakfast is included.

The Delta Okanagan Grand may be a consideration too. There are a few restaurants closeby and you can easily walk along the waterfront to Bernard Avenue where you'll find more shops and restaurants.

If you want to go top of the line it would be the Delta. You might also consider the Prestige Inn. Dining? Certainly up top at Earl's gives you a great view along with good food and service. The Industry Room in the Prestige Inn, if you stay there, has a lot to recommend it. There's also a Keg downtown. If you do want to do fine dining one night try the Yellow House.

Have a great time.

If you are willing to spend up to $250 a night, I would suspect the travelodge might be below your standards. I would stick with the suggestion of the Delta Okanagan Grand hotel which appears to be around $240 a night and maybe less with a AAA or CAA card. This is right on the water and also right in the downtown area.

Beyond that you may want to consider the Eldorado, not sure of the price point, but it is a cool hotel a bit farther from downtown but also right on the water.

The Grand hotel is beautiful and you will be able to walk to all the downtown attractions. It has a really nice outdoor pool to hang out at, as well.

You really should eat at Earls, or at least go there for a drink. It is a beautiful spot, renovated last year. I ate at an Earl's in Calgary last year and there was no comparison. Earls in Kelowna has top notch food, fantastic service and great drinks. The view is gorgeous. You can check their menu online to see if it would suit you.

If you also like Asian food, the Red Lotus is just a block away on Bernard and I really recommend it.
