This is a great spot, located a very short walk from Skaha beach, was an amazon value. We had a nice room with a king size bed equipped with part kitchen (enough to cook breakfast on) small bathroom. But for the price we will be back for sure, two nights here for the price of one night across the street... No brainer. The grounds are impeccably kept and there are several sitting areas and bbqs for guest use.

We stayed here for the weekend of Oct 19-21 and had a great stay. It was very economical…but clean and cozy. The king bed was super comfortable and it was nice to have the kitchenette to make breakfast. Every night we took a short 5 min walk to Skaha beach for a walk along the water. We will bring our kids with us to this motel in the summer for a family get-away…they would love how close it is to the beach as well as having a pool.

Our family and friends have been enjoying the valley star motel for the past 20 years. It was recommended to us by a friend who had been there. We had small kids at the time and we loved that the pool was fenced and the playground was fenced in a corner so the kids were safe and couldn't dash off to the road. Every year when we arrive we are greeted with hugs and we catch up with what has been happening in Ravin and Bimla's lives. The rooms are very clean and suit our needs for the week that we stay. The BBQ's on the lawn area are well used by our group as well as all the lawn chairs and gazebo. Now our kids are getting married and they come with the grandkids who enjoy the playground and pool and the safety. The flowers in the summer are amazing and the grounds are very well kept. Every year we arrive to see the updates that Bimla and Ravin have done over the year and they are very good. Bimla and Ravin have become our Penticton family. I would highly recommend this motel.

You can't beat this place for the price and the people. The owner, Ravin, keeps the place in good shape and his pride shows through in the way he treats his guests and the way the rooms and grounds are kept. The rooms are older but clean with many upgrades.Our king bed was new. We slept well. Ravin gave lent us a hairdryer that we forgot. We sat outside on the lawn one afternoon for a visit with family- clean, quiet, nice. The staff are professional and good. I'll be back.

The Valley Star Motel has good, clean & affordable rooms. Though it is an older Motel, there have been upgrades made and it is very clean. We booked because of the great reviews on Trip Advisor & couldn't agree more. It's location was only 2 blocks from Skaha Lake but quite far away from the Okanagan Lake. We found there was more site seeing to do closer to the Okanagan Lake & downtown. However, we had a rental car and Penticton is very easy to get around in. The room was equipped with a small kitchenette & BBQ's outside which was perfect for us. The Owner was very friendly and generously upgraded without asking to a king size room. We would definately recommend this Motel.

We were two couples traveling together to enjoy wine tasting in the Okananagan. We tried the Valley Star Motel because of the great ratings on Trip Advisor. It can be difficult to find a great value, that is also clean, convenient and offers a King size bed! The room we rented had a kitchenette, assigned parking right outside the door, a small covered patio adjacent to our friends room, and was close to the lake. They even offer several nice bar-b-que areas if you wish to eat in. There was A/C in the room, and the bed and pillows were quite comfortable. The only thing missing for us was a hairdryer, but was probably available to borrow at the front desk.

Room Tip: Calling the motel to speak with the owner is advised. She can assist you in the right choice of room...
