The Good
The majority of the reviews sourced for this analysis were positive, with praise going to the hotel's location, staff and rooms.

The hotel's location was praised by numerous reviewers. They described it as safe and close to Skaha Lake Park, the beach, shopping, a grocery store, the marina, LoloLanding Adventure Park, tennis courts, the canal and a liquor store.

The hotel's staff were the source of many compliments by lodgers, who characterized them as friendly, helpful and accommodating. One patron noted, "Staff were knowledgeable and watchful - they seemed aware of all comings/goings, which helped ease concerns about our kids playing by themselves. Also a special mention should be made about one of the room maids, who took time to help us find activities to fill our day. She came up with ideas/locations that we would not have found on our own".

Several lodgers were pleased with the hotel's accommodations. They described their rooms as clean, well equipped, quiet, well maintained and spacious, with good Wi-Fi. A few travellers had complaints about their lodgings, however (see below).
