We were here for Challenge Penticton triathlon. The Riverside motel was a great base for our family. Easy walk to the beach, opposite Loco Landing (which provided a full day of fun for the kids), nice outdoor pool and handy amenities (BBQ, kitchen area etc.). The rooms are a little tired, but comfy enough. The staff were really sweet and... More

We have been going to this motel since the 1970's. Yes I know you will think it is an old dump but they keep it up with something redone every year. It is a great family motel. Pool is in the center and all rooms surround it. Cars are on the other side, never seen. Manager patrols area and is... More

Our first impression of the motel was "it was a dump". There were webs/flies(?) all over the exterior of the motel and then I discovered more inside the room by the windows. The "suite" was crammed into the space of a regular sized motel room; There was a wall with a door, and just enough space to fit a bed... More

We stayed for three nights and only got to use the pool once because it always seemed to be filled with kids splashing around. Even at 10:30 in the evening kids were still in the pool shouting. Because the pool is so close to the rooms getting to sleep before 11 pm is impossible. The room itself was good, with... More
