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.
