We were coming from a week long climbing trip in the alpine and were looking for a cheap, clean room with a shower after so many days in a tent. Unfortunately, this motel was a miss on all three. For $140 for a single night, we got a shower that fluctuated between ice cold, to scalding hot every 30 seconds...

We rolled into Penticton late and were grateful to find an affordable place to stay. The lady at the front counter was lovely and the place seemed well kept. However - our room was not very clean! There were bugs & bits of previous peoples garbage in most corners of the room. The shower leaked when it was running and...

I stayed here on very short notice on a very busy weekend for the city. There were three families that booked. The price was at least double what it should have been and the room was lets just say old. I know the sheets were clean but I can't say the same for the tub or mirror. I realize it...

This place serves as a great base. It is in the middle of penticton, and close to downtown. The rooms are a little outdated, but unless you are hanging out in their, who cares. They have a nice pool to take a dip in and outside patio area. The wifi is very spotty and drops randomly, just use the DQ...

We looked around town before picking a place. This one was 1/3 the price of everywhere we went to. To our surprise our room had a queen and 2 singles, perfect for what we needed as well as a small fridge and microwave. Room was very clean. Not a 5 star but exactly what they claim " an inn "...

I've stayed here a few times over the years for conventions. In fact a good portion of the people involved have stayed here too. It's not a five star, but it is what it needs to be. The place is clean, there are fridges in most rooms, the beds are ok, and the staff/reception are always courteous. I see a...

We had planned to camp in Penticton, but made the mistake of arriving on a Friday - without a reservation. Of course, many of the hotels & motels were full as well, but we finally phoned the Carmi and they were able to hold a room for us. This motel is located right in the middle of Skaha and Okanagan...

I have stayed at the Carmi for 3 years in a row. The motel is very unassuming located next to the Dairy Queen on Main Street. The rooms are a throwback to the late 60's/70's, and many of the rooms are strange sizes and on the dark side. The motel looks like an Alpen style with white outer walls accented...

“AS noted in other reviews, there is a Dairy Queen adjacent to the North side of the motel, so ask for a room on the south side, or on the section of the motel that is fruther from the office, the motel is in kind of a U shape.”
