Coast Osoyoos Beach Hotel
Make sure you check some of the previous reviews for the real story. I stayed here in september 2013 and checked in to a room that had not been made up or cleaned since the last guest. Not a big deal – mistakes happen. They made up the room for us but quite clearly did not clean it. Curly black hairs all over inside the sheets. Ok – kinda a bigger deal. Slept on top of the bed cover because it was already midnight at this point. Check out the next morning without complaining and am told there is a problem and the manager needs to speak to me. She comes out and explains that i was trying to trick them in to getting a discount by saying the room was dirty. Somehow in her mind i was able to enter the room before checking in and littered it with pubic hairs and pizza boxes to try to save a few dollars. It would be insulting if it was not so absurd. Lady – i never once asked for a discount. We just wanted to get out and forget about your gross hotel. There seems to be a duo of a husband and wife running the show. This woman seems to be the larger problem, though the other half cowered in the shadows i saw, so seems to be just a general failure in management altogether. Shoddy furnishing, dirty rooms, no spots to park in parking lot, standing water on the lower deck, upper deck ceiling covered in spider eggs (should be a great stay after those hatch!), etc, etc. Oh – and a quick look on the health boards website shows they have had received 2 VERY disgusting warnings about their pool in the past. Skip this one, folks… The Best Western is right next door, has professional management and staff and is much cleaner, for only $10/night more.

Perfect Family Vacation Spot
We have visited the Coast Osoyoos for the last 5 years in a row. The weather is always amazing, Sandy who runs the hotel is there all the time ensuring you are enjoying your stay. Rooms are right on the beach. The beach is clean, water beautiful, and the water slide is such a bonus! Having BBQs right on the beach is fantastic and all rooms have full sized fridges. Continental breakfast is basic, cereal, oatmeal, toast, coffee and juice, but who needs more than that. The workout room is adequate, a couple of machines and universal system, perfect for a quick holiday workout. Must sees are Silver Sage Winery; Hillside Orchards U-Pick Farm for fruit, veggies, ice cream, pies, and a visit with their goats; and Osoyoos Gelato. Also the Firehall restaurant and Brewery in Oliver is a great spot for a yummy meal. We spend super hot afternoons touring wineries. Most have snacks and sparkling beverages for the kiddos. Lots of fantastic golfing around too. The pool and hot tub are very chlorinated (better than under chlorinated) so don’t get colour treated hair wet.
Beautiful view from our room. Was on the third floor and the lake is right outside your patio. Out the front of the building right across the street is also a lake. The best views you could ask for. Breakfast was included but very appealing. Not much of a selection. One day no fruit, one day no yogurt, other then toast and cereal that was the choice.
Listen to the Cornish
One of the more expensive motels on our trip through BC, however it is in a prime location and we had a room with stunning views across the lake. Rooms large and very comfortable, staff friendly and helpful. Breakfast was only just passable.

pretty good place
I chose this hotel partly for the price and partly for the reputation of Coast Hotels. I expected a reasonably priced room, that was clean and had a comfortable bed. We got those exactly. Room is quiet even with a full house. Nice location on the beach. I would come again.
