We were greeted with a warm, friendly welcome at check in. We received a renovated room and the room itself was well appointed with thoughtful details (fridge, delicious coffee, microwave and lots of hooks and storage to place things), the beds were comfortable and everything was clean. The villas are located a short walk to the beach. It was a wonderful stay!

Pride of ownership visible. Well maintained, friendly staff and manager. Got exactly what they promised. Would stay here again. Air conditioning worked well and full size appliances were all relatively new. Good parking and kids loved private beach.

Owners go out of their way to make you feel welcome. Have access to private beach and are a short walk to a coffee shop and pub. They have a locked shed to keep your bike and are 400 meters away from the KVR bike trail. Good value for the price which includes a full kitchen and reliable internet.

Our first impression on arrival was how retro the place is. Reminded me of the places where my family used to stay in the 50's. Baby blue painted stucco and pink doors! Our hosts and owners, Jules and Brent, were so friendly and welcoming and it is obvious how much love and care they have put into this motel! Our 1 bedroom suite had everything we needed. Full sized appliances, dishes, cutlery, pots and pans and GREAT coffee available both in our room and at the office. The bed was so comfortable with top notch bedding and plush towels (and lots of them) in the bathroom. Air conditioning and a ceiling fan in the bedroom were well used during our stay. Outside, the gardens were welcoming and well-maintained with fresh herbs we could pick for our meals. There are several seating areas in both the sun and shade, a gazebo, 2 barbeques, an outdoor gas fireplace and it is a great place to chat with new friends over a glass of wine in the evening. It is well situated to access the plentiful wineries, cideries and breweries in the area. The private beach was an added bonus. I would highly recommend this little gem in Penticton. Our 5 night stay was wonderful!

We booked this place based on the great reviews we had read, but were a little uncertain when we arrived. It is located off of a fairly busy road leaving Penticton, and the family suite we booked was definitely smaller than we expected. However our impressions of Lakeside improved quickly once we started our stay. Although the unit was on the small side it was extremely clean, and fairly well equipped with the kitchenette. The beach access was great. There is an underpass pedestrian walkway 30 seconds from the motel, with access to a private beach on the north side of Skaha Lake. Good sand, not crowded. The motel is also right next door to a cool little restaurant called The Wienery, which serves delicious gourmet hot dogs and nice drinks on a patio looking out at the lake, and is run by two of the nicest people you will ever meet. And a few steps further down the lane is Second Scoop, the top rated ice cream joint in Penticton. Really good! And the motel is pretty conveniently located overall...just a few minutes to get to downtown Penticton, the main beach on south Okanagan Lake, etc. The motel also has a nice little shared green space at the back of the property with bbqs, picnic benches, a swing, etc. Nice little spot for outdoor meals. But perhaps one of the best parts about Lakeside is the great customer service of the manager, Brandon. He noticed we arrived with bikes and offered to lock them up in the shed without us even asking, which was really convenient. And whenever we needed anything, from bbq tools to supplies etc, he was quick to respond and super helpful. Overall, a nice little place where we would definitely stay again.

My wife didn't think much of the motel as we pulled into it on our arrival, based on its blue-green paint job—but I assured her that guest reviews of the place were mostly very complimentary. Once we entered our room, we understood why: the room was in fact a small suite, with a living room, full kitchen (with full-sized stainless steel fridge, and an electric ring stove-oven in immaculate condition, sink, cupboards, and the usual complement of dishes and cutlery. We may have been particularly lucky, because our unit was ground floor, with its own little grassed yard and bench... The air-conditioning (essential in this part of the world, in summer) is effective and not overly noisy. The shower works well; the bath and bath sink are easily plugged (it's amazing how many places don't get that little detail right), and hot water is hot, and quickly (ditto). Wi-Fi is a little on the slow side, but reliable. The bed was comfortable, and the demountable clothes hanging and storage unit perfectly adequate. The easy access to the private Skaka Lake beach across the road (though the pedestrian underpass) is a big bonus. Last but not least, Brandon, the manager, was on hand and reachable at all times, and very quick in attending to any problem or question we had. All in all, Lakeside Villas and Suites shows how a motel can and should be run, and it's our new go-to place to stay whenever we visit the area in future.

We stayed at Lakeside Villas for 4 nights/5 days in Aug 2021. My boyfriend and our kids 13 & 15 and 6 all loved our stay! We booked the deluxe family suite (unit #13) and had two queen beds (one in a private bedroom) and a sofa and a full kitchen with full size appliances and it suited us perfectly! The beds were insanely comfortable, I never wanted to go home. The shower pressure and temperatures were great for my long thick hair as well. We couldn't ask for more. The location is across from the Skaha Lake with access thru a tunnel and the beach is not over populated and very relaxed. We prefer the Skaha over the OK Lake for the laid back vibes. The water is warm and there is ice cream shops and picnic tables for everyone to use. The owners are very friendly and offer everything you need for a wonderful stay. My boyfriend dropped me and the kids and our floaties at the top of the canal and Brandon drove him back up so we could float down without leaving our truck. Once we floated to the bottom, we ended in the lake and walked the beach shore back to the hotel. It was absolutely perfect. Our only complaint is we didn't book a longer stay. We will be booking again year after year as this is our new fave vacation spot in the interior! Thanks Lakeside Villas and keep up the wonderful hospitality! See you next summer!

We loved our stay here. The lake access with private beach across the road (access via an underpass) was perfect and the yard with bbq's was a beautiful spot for morning coffee, to make dinner in at night and the kids to play in. The rooms were nice, very clean and the kitchen was well appointed with everything we needed. The owners were very friendly and accommodating, even providing a shuttle for us to get to the top of the river channel (it's a 5 min walk back to the hotel via the beach - accessed though another underpass at the bottom of the channel). Would definitely stay here again.
