“Smelly, dank, grotty”
Reviewed 15 September 2010

We stayed for two nights in July 2010 and we're sorry we chose this place! We requested a non-smoking room, but the place STANK of cigarette smoke - it was really strong and quite disgusting. We mentioned this to the reception staff and pretty much received a shrug. Because the room was so smelly we had to leave the door open whilst we were in there (which was as little as possible) and as it was 30 odd degrees outside the room became boiling hot. Plus the room is about 2 feet from the car park.

Our bedroom looked directly onto a 24hour drive through fast food place, so we had to leave the curtains closed at all times which only served to enhance the grubby and grotty feeling of the place.

The bathroom had one tiny light above the mirror (no window) so in order to see we had to switch on a timed heat lamp. Not only did this heat the bathroom to seriously uncomfortable levels, but if it went out whilst you wre in the shower you were plunged into darkness. The shower was a bit of health hazard in that it switched between freezing (and I mean FREEZING) cold water and then immediately back to scalding hot. We tried letting it run for a while or turning it hotter and colder but nothing worked. Again we complained to reception and the guy said 'Yeah that does tend to happen'. Shame that they know about it but obviously don't care enough to do anything about it.

The location wasn;t great for us - it's about 5km out of town (and it's a lovely town) and on a busy dual carriage way. But to get to Kelowna you'll probably have a car anyway so it isn't too big a deal.

This place is essentially a motel with poor service and paper thin walls and ceilings, and it kind of spoilt our trip to Kelowna. Definitely WOULD NOT stay here again.

We picked the Siesta Inn for its location and price. We found it very reasonable for its location and amenities. Its not a new building, but appears very well maintained, in and out. The out door pool was great. We didn't get to try the indoor pool, the weather was too good. Housekeeping staff were great.

We stayed at the Siesta Motor Inn for 5 nights. The property is very well taken care of. 1 indoor pool and 1 outdoor pool (great). The rooms are very very clean (excellent housekeeping), kitchen well equipped. BBQs on site for guest use. Also guest laundry facilities. Location great , across the street from grocery store, liq store, fastfood outlets. Agree with other reviews, front desk staff could definitly be more welcoming, it would have pushed my rating to 5.
To get to Gyro beach it's a 10 min. walk along a very busy road, a little stressful with kids. Beach is idea for the little ones, water depth is only adult chest high.

This is a great place, very clean, well looked after. Pools (x2) always clean and maintained. Kitchen units well supplied, cleaning staff very accommodating. Walking distance to groceries, coffee, liquor store and Gyro beach. Only downfalls - parking during peak times is difficult. Stalls are very close together, but if you plan to park and return early in the afternoon, or park and stay - you are fine. If you retire before 10pm then this may not be the location for you... but hey - it is a vacation!

Our reservation was handled well - no issues there, but the front office staff leaves a little to be desired. A bit more personality would benefit this location tremendously. Other than having to only deal with them at check in and check out - this is a perfect family motel. Would stay there again definitely.

I stayed with two other families for 1 week and we loved it! Great, friendly staff from front desk to housekeeping. This hotel has lots of repeat customers who book every year and our neighbours were so friendly ( maybe because they are on vacation?). If you get a room on the second floor, there are tables and chairs for you to hang out and eat your meals. I even saw a family who brought their own placemats! The rooms are clean, with the exception of the carpets which could use ALOT of cleaning! The air con is AWESOME! There is free high-speed internet but it is quite slow. A great location, close to Gyro beach, shops, Save On foods, Starbucks and Tim Hortons. A definite stay for families and groups of families!!!

My husband was in the Kelowna Hospital for 10 days, and I stayed at the Siesta Inn. I was really pleased with the clean rooms and the friendly staff. The motel was well maintained, and I like that at night the parking lot was lit. We would stay there again!
