This was my second visit & this room had a cleaner carpet than the one I had the time before. It's pretty basic but is a good value for the $$ they charge. I can't drive after my eye exams, so this place is a short walk across the park from my doctor's office. I can make it across the...

Very dated Inn, furniture is old and rug is filthy! Hubby and I didn't want to walk around the room with bare feet. The bed was comfortable and the washroom was clean. There was an awful smell in the room that gave me a headache and I couldn't wait to leave.

Three adults and one teen in a double queen suite. The room was clean, beds were comfortable, kitchen had everything we needed and bathroom worked. The pool is smallish but still enough to do some laps in or just chill. The room came with continental breakfast which was ok. One morning it was closed for most of the breakfast period...

The room was very clean and the bed was very comfortable. The included breakfast was decent; toast, waffles, cereals, fruit, coffee, tea and juices. We stayed for 4 nights and were very happy with the room, didn't hear other rooms around us. We were on the main floor and the wifi was great.

Extremely filthy and rundown. Filthy carpets and upholstery. We wouldnt sit on the loveseat. We had nowhere else to go in busy Kelowna, or we would have left. The outside stairs were poorly maintained with a loose railing to our 2 nd floor suite. Windows, sills and balcony were dirty. Not a chair on the balcony. Very loud air conditioner...

Rent og trivelig. Vi ble godt mottatt. Det utendørs svømmebassenget kunne vært bedre ettersett. God kontinental frokost. Clean and pleasant. We were well received. The outdoor pool could have been better looked after.
