I stayed at the Ogopogo Motel from August 6 - 14, 2015. The beds are new and super-comfortable. Also, Ron and Rose, the managers of the motel were just amazing. They are very friendly and went out of their way to help us out with any needs. There is a BBQ area and a pool area that's great for suntanning.... More

Great room. Great people. Took good care of us. I would recommend this Motel. Helped us out without without reservations. Gave us tips where to enjoy a good meal. Comfortable beds. Ron and Rose couldn't have been more helpful and good to us. It is close to Okanagan Lake.

After reading the latest review, i really have to write this. I found the management the best that i have come across in many, many years of traveling. They were always around, helped out, asked if we needed anything, friendly and did everything possible to make our stay wonderful.

We come to Penticton for Peachfest, so it is a busy time in this city. We stayed here August 7 to 10th, 2014. The first year, my brother booked the room for us. We had a basic room with 2 beds, microwave, coffee maker and the best a/c ever! After a day on the canal, the ice cold room was... More

Rosemary J, Manager at Ogopogo Motel, responded to this review

As managers at the Ogopogo Motel, we quite often do not respond to negative reviews as it can seem as though we are just playing tit-for-tat, but we do at times feel the need to tell both sides of the story especially when a review is quite embellished! We also have the right to refuse service to any guests who... More

The physical facility is exactly what we expected for a vintage motel that's showing it's age. But . . . the beds were brand new and very comfortable and the sheets were clean. The a/c ran cold and the shower had lots of hot water with very good pressure. Also,the managers were extremely friendly and helpful. It will never compete... More

I always think people should book based on the reviews, so if you are paying half what other properties are charging, then you might be getting great value - for the price - but maybe not receive the amenities. Either way you know what you are in for. This motel is a prime example, I paid a lot less and... More

As an experienced RV traveler, we were hesitant to stay at this RV park due to its "run down" look. We have always stayed at the Impeccable Park Royal RV beside the Ogopogo RV but it was full, and as we were taking our 4 young grandchildren, the lure of a pool made it happen. The "new managers "started Sept/12"... More
