“Best place to hang with family and friends”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 24 July 2014

We've stayed at this property since before our kid was born 7 years ago. We use to go with friends and use it as our home base for biking around the area. It's fantastic and continues to get better every year.

The location is great as it's close to the beach and playgrounds, I like the Skaha beach better than the Okanogan Lake beach. You really feel like you're on holidays. What makes this property better than most others is that it has made the parking area in the centre of the property into a great social area with grass, trees, bbq's, tables (both picnic and loungy) and the vibe is fantastic. Every night the owners (who are a beautiful family) put out a big screen TV with little chairs and free popcorn for all the kids that are staying there. It's great for parents because your kids are captivated and having a wonderful holiday experience while the parents can socialize with each other without having to supervise their little ones. Once the movies are over, inevitably it's like a bed time bell and all the kids on property go to their respective rooms. It's an awesome set up and I'm surprised that other hotels/motels aren't employing that strategy.

There is a 60 flavour ice cream shop on property (owned by the same folks) and a little playground at the back of the property. It's a haven for kids, and a godsend for parents.

The owners are true workaholics and every year we go, there has been new work done to the rooms bringing them up in quality by leaps and bounds.

I would (and have) recommended this hotel to all my friends heading to Penticton. I just hope that by doing this, it doesn't eliminate our space for upcoming years.

Last note: The hotel has a herd of Jack Russels on living there. Buddy has been there since we started going at least 9 years ago. The little dogs add so much to the experience and although they're getting up in age, they're still frisky and fun.

Room Tip: I think all the rooms here are good rooms. Just tell them what you're looking for and they'l...

Wonderful place to stay , The owners are meticulous with the motel, The rooms were very clean. We were there twice in June. . It was a wonderful place, They do so much to make your stay comfortable like picnic tables outside in the courtyard and bar- b - cues for your use. movies under the trees for the kids in the evening, the beach is very close, Will be back again for sure.!!

P.S. hope your moonflower is giving you lots of flowers. :-)

This truly is one of those great unknowns.
Large extra clean rooms with kitchenettes are great with the family !
With full use of barbeques , picnic tables and a green space, this is a home away from home!
Just a 2 minute walk to the beach and park!
Everything is so close by!
Trudy , John and staff always welcome you with open arms!
Have stayed at least 5 times over the years , never having been disappointed.
Will definitely stay again and again.
Thanks

Nightly movies for the kids (complete with popcorn and slushies), an indoor, heated pool, and a cool, pine-shaded grassy boulevard complete with barbeques, chairs and tables makes for great comfort and informality.
The updated units are mostly one-bedroom kitchenettes with a second double plus hide-a-bed in the living room. They're clean, the service is friendly, and it's a two minute walk to Skaha Lake, so it's no surprise that many of the guests have returned numerous summers. 
It's not fancy, it's just very comfortable.
This July will be our 6th summer at the Beachside.

Between Osoyoos and Kelowna, in the Okanagan Valley, a comfortable home-away-from-home is tucked away near the Skaha Lake shore. The Beachside Motel has grown to its present size under due to the hard work of its long-time owners. John and Trudy welcome families and singles equally to their well-run establishment. The kitchenettes are fairly priced and kept immaculate daily and the visitor is worry-free under the watchful and ever-present little dogs running around the property. The huge Ponderosa pines loom over the adjacent park, with its tennis courts and beach volleyball sections. On weekends, and some evenings, there are usually some groups who light up bonfires in the allocated fire-pits and everyone enjoys playing and swimming to their heart's content. Make reservations well ahead of time because this little hideaway isn't so well hidden anymore due to its popularity and friendly atmosphere.

Room Tip: The second floor rooms don't have as much noise when people walk by on the veranda.
