Reviewed 22 December 2011

The motel is a basic low budget place with a small kitchen, clean and well maintained. But I found the first room they put me in was at the front, facing a busy, noisy road. I had to request a change to a quieter room at the rear side of the motel. It was smaller, but OK for my short stay. The motel is well located close to OK Lake, beach and children's playground park. The staff were helpful for my requested change of room.

Room Tip: stay at the rear for a quieter room.

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.

Had four rooms reserved Saturday night. One of the rooms had no heat. My room had no hot water for my shower in the morning. Contacted the front desk. They said sorry. No discount for the rooms. If you mess up make things right for the customer. I wont go back. Lots of motels in the area to look at.

We were very impressed with the size & the quality of our room. We stayed in a large room with 2 queen beds & a nice kitchenette for $59 + tax per night in the off season. The pool was closed for the winter. The room was spotless. The bathroom was modern & sparkling. We were also very pleased with the man on the front desk. I spoke to him several times during our 2 day stay & he was always very polite & more than willing to help. We used one of the BBQs one night, which was a nice feature. Also the free WIFI at this place was the best we had during our whole vacation.

Can't beat the location, round the corner from the beach on Okanagon lake and over the road to the entrance to the river (float trips)
Rooms better than expected, I don't think we had an updated room but they were very clean and well equipped. Pool was a massive plus point for the price we paid.
In summary, great location, lovely atmosphere, good amenities, room a bit tired, excellent value for money!!
