Lakeview Motel & Suites
Ranked #8 of 26 Hotels in Osoyoos
Reviewed 5 August 2014

First off the owners are some of the nicest people we've met. They pay close attention to your needs and are willing to help with anything. We had a suite with a separate bedroom and a two queen room. The rooms were clean and fresh, a little outdated but it's expected in Osoyoos. There aren't too many "fancy" motels there. The motel didn't have as many parking spaces that you would expect, but this didn't affect us because we arrived early. The pool was clean and warm. When we decided to have a few beverages beside the pool, the owners looked the other way and when we stayed in the pool after the 9 o'clock shut down time, they didn't even bat an eyelash. They waited until everyone was out and then came and closed it down for the night. In the morning we wanted to go down to the lake with our tubes, but didn't have the energy to blow them up. The owner stepped up and let us use his compressor. The public beach is about 50 meters away from the entrance to the motel, which is not that bad of a walk. The area that the hotel is in is the "quieter" part of Osoyoos and therefore more family orientated. This is an excellent place to stay and will go back in a heartbeat!!!

Room Tip: We had an upper floor room. The only bad thing is the stairs. If you have bad knees like me then try...

Our Motel is family owned and family run.The fact that we own it makes all the difference.We want guests to feel at home while they are here.Our pool is well liked and is a family favourite.We do allow guests to drink(no food)on the pool deck.The drink must be in a PLASTIC CONTAINER-NO GLASS).As along as our guests are quiet we leave the pool open until we go to bed.There are some "fancy hotels"in Osoyoos,but they come with a fancy price also.We do try and keep our prices reasonable and our property fully maintained.Thank you again for your kind words and look forward to your return to our oasis in Osoyoos

This is an older property that has had quite a bit of updating. The owner is a very friendly and welcoming chap.
The rooms are clean and well appointed. There was a full size fridge, micro wave and coffee maker. There are also BBQ's available out front. The parking lot is a bit small but secure. This motel is a very shirt walk, about 10 mins to the main st in Osoyoos where there are a few good restaurants.
Defiantly a nice place to stay.

As owners of the Motel my wife, family and I try to be as welcoming as possible,we do value our guests.Coming from the " old country"we used to live in a 400 year old house so relatively speaking we dont see Lakeview as old,but for a young country like Canada I suppose it is!!
We do believe in keeping our properties in good condition with everything working.As you say we are also well located to the town and lake.Thank you for your kind remarks and for staying with us.

Osoyoos is not the cheapest place in Canada to visit in mid-Summer but the Lakeview provides good value and is kept very clean. The new owners clearly inherited a run down property but have been putting a lot of effort into bringing it up to scratch. There are still a few minor maintenance issues left (e.g. loose tap in the kitchen sink) but I have no doubt that these will get resolved, and did not affect our stay.

We were especially glad of the air conditioning as local temperatures hit over 40 degrees C while we were there. The room air conditioner didn't bring the temperature down to icy extremes, but did make it far more comfortable.

We were also glad of the advice given on both local restaurants (see separate review of Lotus Restaurant) and local attractions - both helpful and accurate.

We will definitely use this Motel if we are in the area again.

Thank you for your remarks.As you left you informed us of the tap issues,this was resolved that day.The AC unit in your room was purchased new last year (8,000 BTUs).As you say when you were here it was exceptionally hot,even for Osoyoos but we are pleased that it cooled the two bedroomed unit enough.We do try and give advice on local eateries and attractions and we are pleased that you found a restraurant to your liking.
Thank you for staying with us and hope to see you again.

Good value for your money. Cheaper than all the other places we looked into when we were searching for a last minute place to stay as we are riding our motorcycle into town. Family run and very friendly, spotless room, great pool, quiet and easy going. The kitchenette was a nice surprise and the and air conditioning cooled the room quickly. We will definitely stay here the next time we are passing through!

I always look for good value for my vacation dollar and don't like to spend too much on hotels as most of the time we're not even in it. I also look for kitchen facilities to help manage meals so that we're not eating out 3 times a day.

Lakeview is an older motel style with limited parking and a dated feel. Nevertheless, it was very comfortable, well-equipped and quiet. The proprietors are very accommodating. We needed a pizza pan and oven mitts and they gave it to us out of their kitchen.

The salt-water pool was a good size and the hot sun and weather was perfect for using it. The beds were comfortable, the pull-out couch was a futon so much better than a typical folded bed in a sofa.

The motel is on a quiet street off Main Street. Signs are good to for directions. It is close enough to grocery stores, fast food, etc., but too far to walk to. A local beach is close...just across the street.

My only complaint is that the parking spaces are very small and by the time the hotel is full, cars are parked all over.

Overall, a recommended stay for a budget traveler. We had a 1 bedroom suite with a full kitchen.

Room Tip: 2nd floor has lots of stairs; if you have lots of luggage or can't carry it up stairs, get a roo...

My wife and I are pleased that you found our rooms well equipend,quiet and comfortable.We offer the travellers clean,well equipped rooms with cooking facilities.Our guests tell us they prefer to cook a harty breakfast in their units before starting their journey instead of inadequate chain hotel breakfasts,plus you can cook an evening meal as well.Our motel have modern kitchens,flat screen TVs etc.As for parking(which is FREE) we are finding guests are bringing more than one car which adds to our problems with a limited space.We have two floors to the property,I am only to pleased to carry up guests cases,coolers and cases of wine if I am asked or indeed if I see the guest strugling with the cases etc.We are here to help and look after our guests.One thing I will say is that having a big modern building does not bode with the fact you do not like to spend to much on accommodation while you are travelling.All these big fancy buildings have got to be paid for by the staying guests.
We find we are catering for the people who want clean,modern rooms with good facilities and a friendly atmosphere.

We have been touring the Okaganan Valley in BC and one of our most memorable stays was at this spotlessly clean motel. The room was comfortable with two excellent Queen size beds, microwave, fridge and coffee machine. The motel is older, but the rooms and facilities are being continually updated.
It is centrally located and it was easy to walk to the excellent restaurants close by along the lake.
Siam, who welcomed us as we checked in was a delight and gave us great service, as did his mother who we met later.

It is nice that they feel appreciated by the guests(and us) and that they do an excellent job when we are away.
