The Accent Inn is my pick for good value in Kelowna. It's a popular motel-style property and it seems to have all the things that travellers desire these days, namely comfort without cost. Guests like the friendly staff, clean rooms and comfy beds at this motel. All rooms feature a mini-fridge for that extra convenience of chilling beverages or snacks and meals. This is also a bicycle friendly place where you can store your treasured possession in your room and the hotel provides a bike washing station and tools for tuning or repairing your bike.

The hotel has a seasonal outdoor pool to make the most out of those wonderful summer days, and an elevator which is handy for guests who don't like to climb flights of stairs with their luggage! ABC Restaurant is on site and Starbucks is next door. The central location of this motel is also an added plus with the Capri Centre mall only a 4-minute walk away and De Dutch Pannekoek House a 2-minute walk from the motel. Downtown Kelowna and the parks at the lakeshore are a pleasant half an hour walk from the hotel. Wi-Fi, parking and local calls are all included, for added value.

Tips For Staying In Kelowna

Choosing A Hotel in Kelowna

Quick Summary of Most Popular Areas
Downtown Kelowna: dining, shopping and superb accommodations, everything you'd expect from a world-class city
Kelowna Airport (YLW): conveniently located just north of the downtown core, only about a 20 minute drive

What's the deal with Kelowna?

Staying in Kelowna is a treat for those who enjoy drinking wine and playing golf (there are 17 courses to test your every nerve). For those that do not enjoy wine and golf, you need to get your priorities straight because you are missing out! Kelowna is a true Canadian gem with its hot summers and relatively mild winters. Downtown Kelowna is located in the Okanagan Valley, a name truly synonymous with fine Canadian wine. Local vineyards are literally a 10 minute drive from the downtown core.

If you are flying in and out of the city, the airport is located just over 10km north of the city's core. The closest Kelowna Airport hotels are actually more or less the same hotels found in the downtown core, so you'll find yourself right in the middle of all the action.

Surrounding Area
If you are looking to check out some other areas along the Okanagan Valley you'll find the city of Penticton about 70km to the south and Vernon 50km to the north.
