Osoyoos is a very small town but around it is a wonderful rural community with fresh fruit and vineyards and a pleasant feel. After reading reviews of several of the hotels/motels & resorts in the area I reluctantly choose the Avalon Inn, despite some bad reviews (other venues also had a wide range of reviews).
It appears that the Inn has recently expanded -- one side seems sort of decrepit -- but most of the units seem relatively new. The guy in the office seemed really bored with his job, but ultimately did give us some good advise on where to eat (a "grill" right within walking distance with good wine, food and a delightful woman who runs the place).
We stayed in the new part and as one reviewer here said, the rooms are large, the wash basin is in the room not the bathroom, a small fridge was good to have, the bed was very good and all was quite pleasant -- at a very reasonable rate.
We got what we wanted here, a good night's sleep w/o any negatives.Try it, you'll (probably) like it.
- Official Description (provided by the hotel):
- Welcome to the Avalon Inn, located in the heart of downtown Osoyoos, British Columbia. Just across the street from Tim Horton's, and a five minute walk away from the shores of Osoyoos Lake, this family owned motel can assure you a good night's rest. Although we are located just off Main Street / Highway 3, we offer one of the quietest accommodations in the community as each classically furnished room is soundproofed for your privacy and peace of mind.Here you have access to free Wi-Fi internet, cable TV with free movie channels, and a refrigerator and coffee maker in each room. We are within just two minutes of walking distance from a number of restaurants in the area - everything from casual to fine dining - though if you plan on creating your own home-cooked meals, we have fully equipped kitchen suites just for you. There are also barbecue facilities located in our lush courtyard, where you can lay back in the sun or relax under the shade of the maple trees while listening to birds chirping away cheerfully. Most of our rooms are pet-friendly, as long as you have non-shedding/non-allergenic pets! Rattlesnake Canyon Amusement Park is less than 3 km away, and the Osoyoos Golf & Country Club is a 5 minute drive from the motel. We don't have much of a lake-view of Osoyoos Lake from our balcony suites, although we do have good views of Peanut Lake which is quite close to the motel. ... more less
