“Look, Ma! No dogs!”
Reviewed 16 September 2013

On our previous visits to the Recreation Inn we have had our dogs with us (great hotel for dogs!), but this time I traveled solo, so got to experience the non-pet room...it was beautiful, clean, spacious, with a full galley kitchen and modern exquisitely clean bathroom...missed my dog (and my husband a bit!) but great hotel again!

Room Tip: I'm thinking all the rooms are great...

I highly recommend the Recreation Inn.The Recreation Inn was a very nice place to stay at reasonable rates. The unit had a kitchenette and was clean. The pool was nice as well as the court yard for bar b queing.

We found staying at this location to be very convenient for our needs - both shopping and restaurants. We had a pet friendly room which was great for main floor access for our dogs as well as easy access to the grassy sites for their walks and business needs. Our room had a kitchenette which provided additional convenience since we require refrigeration for our pet food. This also allowed us the opportunity to prepare our own meals on site which worked very well for us. The only concern we had was the state of the carpet - very stained and dirty. I recognize that a pet friendly room is likely going to experience 'accidents' but my own home still has clean carpets, so improving on this would greatly enhance the experience. Otherwise, we were very comfortable with this 'find' and will stay again.

Great spot for dogs, on a dead end street so not much traffic. There is a nice grassy area sheltered from the road by the building, where we let our pups off leash to do their business and play, and where they found some peaches growing that they desperately wanted to pack back to our room!
Our room was in need of upgrades, such as the bathroom but was all very clean except for the carpet, which smelled quite bad. Staff was great, got us some air freshener for it. Front desk extremely friendly, helpful and happy to cater to our dogs! Supplied dog dishes, poop bags and some treats!

Room Tip: rooms in the building closes to the front desk appear to have new upgrades but the farther building...

I would like to thank the staff and wonderful manager for the friendly service that we received . We were doing a wine tour through the Valley (my husband and I) and we seen this hotel from the main road in Kelowna . Awesome price and we decided to stay. Outside isn't great but the room was so so clean and we spoke to the lady manager in the lobby and she showed us the wine routes all the way down to Osoyoos. Personal thanks to her for making our journey easy and fun! I work at Harrison Resort and want say that customer service is their strength.

Kelowna is an expensive place to stay almost anytime of the year. We were looking for inexpensive basic accommodation. This is not an "Inn" but a motel and OK as basic. The rooms were 75% clean (we can live with old carpeting and old decor). Staff were helpful, we did not use the tiny pool/spa area but instead drove for 10 min to the wonderful lake. Homeless people outside trolling through the dumpsters made my kids sad.

I am sorry,but we are unaware of any money being taken from any guests room as we would have followed up with management involvement and a police investigation. If you would like to contact the property I would be most happy to speak to you about this. No one is your party made any attempt to let any of the staff or management aware of any situation of this nature. We are extremely proud of our friendly staff at our property and feel that this is an unfair review.
Thank you and I look forward in hearing back from you!
