We stayed at the Riverside Motel for 2 days during the summer and found it to be a really nice place. Highlight has to be the pool area and the motel's close proximity to the beach.
Rooms : We had 2 rooms during our stay the first looked out onto the pool area and was really impressive, with separate bedroom, kitchen and living area. The door enabling us to easily gain access to the pool was a real plus point but I'd recommend booking a pool facing room in advance as this was only available to us on one night.
Our second room was much less impressive with a combined kitchen/living/bedroom with very little natural light coming through the tiny window. The difference in quality of room was certainly reflected in the cheaper price so can't really complain (also we didn't pre book our stay here).
Location : The hotel is a short walk from the beach and also a couple of restaurants. The walk along the main street takes you to an area with bars/restaurants and shops and takes approximately 30 mins. For those with a car the Walmart is a 10 minute drive away.
We really didn't know what to expect from Penticton and were happily surprised by the seaside style town. The beach is obviously the focal point and as such I'd recommend the Riverside Motel for it's quality, value and ideal location.
