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.
