“Somewhat surprised and relieved.”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 17 October 2010

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.

I booked a room for my husband and his friend well in advance of their trip because they required a wheelchair accessible room. I was assured over the phone that the room was accessible, with a wheel-in shower and two beds. When they arrived today, after a two-day road trip, their room had been given away to someone else. Even when my husband showed the staff the confirmation which indicated that they had booked first, they were given a non-accessible room. The bathroom door had to be removed so that they could use the bathroom. Real nice. What good is advance booking and confirmations? We won't trust them again.

Recently updated very nice big room bed EXTRA COMFY... I have stayed at many hotels in Osoyoos over the last 15 years, for the money the I will choose the Avalon over any or the others if we return to visit. very clean comfy rooms. small tv but we did not go there to watch tv. found the owners to be very welcoming and helpful.

Good place to stop over en-route. Close to golf and lake.

We booked the 1 bedroom Suite for Saturday night, and we were pleasantly surprised! I read 1 review that said this place was "in the middle of nowhere" which couldn't be further from the truth, it's within 5 minutes of anywhere in Osoyoos...

The room was REALLY clean, the bedroom had 2 double beds plus there was a a sofa bed...

Tasteful decor, real tiling in the fully equipped kitchen, quiet heat-pump that kept us cool...

Our only minor complaint was that there was no clock radio... So as we drank a bottle of wine we ha much music on, but would have preferred a radio of some sorts...

Overall, the location and room were great, and the price was very reasonable!

We booked this hotel online, so had no idea what is would be like.For starters it is located in the boonies right beside a busy busy highway.When we finally found this motel I went to the front desk to check in. Check in time is 2:00 p.m. it was around 2:30 and we were informed our room was not ready and to come back in half an hour. No problem so off we went for a coffee and drove around Osoyoos we noticed there were a lot of hotels close to the beach instead of across town miles from the lake.We came back close to an hour later and were informed our room was not ready yet. At his point my husband suggested cancelling our room. Talk about attitude from the guy at the desk no I'm sorry it is taken so long or offering us a coffee while we wait, instead he told us do what you want but I will still charge you for a night.Finally we were told our room was ready. We opened the door to a very plain run of the mill room with a old tiny t.v. The bathroom sink was outside the bathroom slash kitchen bathroom sink.The bathroom was so small you could hardly turn around in it. I would never never stay here again. If you are going to Osoyoos look for a motel close to the beach instead of a highway view.

My friend & I stay at the Avalon every July for a week for the past three years. We just love it.
The rooms are very clean, & the beds are very comfortable.
The staff are very friendly, if you need something they are right there to assist you.
The motel is in a great location, there is a Tim Hortons right across the street & Smittys is right next door & it is within walking distance from downtown for shopping & the beach is only a couple blocks away , what more could you ask for?
If you just feel like relaxing one day there is a real nice area in the motels yard to do that .
Like I said we love it there & we hope to stay there next July if we can get away.
For anyone who wants to go on a relaxing, but fun trip I would highly suggest The Avalon Inn in Osoyoos B.C.

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
