Quick winter get away
My Wife and I booked this hotel for a quick winter get away. One of the main reasons we chose the Coast was for the indoor pool and hot tub and we were not disappointed. Both were very clean and the pool was the perfect temperature. The continental breakfast was fairly basic, but plenty adequate for our needs and much appreciated. Beds were reasonably comfortable and the room was nice and clean. We would definitely stay again and recommend it to our friends.

Great hotel for family vacation
We have now stayed at this resort 3 times for our annual family trip to the Okanagan. We love being able to reserve a suite that can accommodate the 4 of us comfortably with a kitchen so we can provide healthy meals for our group.
The beach here is narrow, but the entrance to the water is so shallow which again is lovely for a family as you don;t have to worry about a drop off in the roped off swimming area.
Some Good, Some Not So Good
My husband, dog and I were in town house hunting. So as you can imagine we were looking for a comfy hotel room to relax in after some very busy days. There was some good and some bad about this hotel:
Pet friendly-we have a large dog and he can be quite the handful so finding care for him when we go away can be challenging, we had to bring him with us this trip but the hotel was extremely accommodating!
People-The people at the front desk were always awesome. Very friendly and very helpful.
Free Breakfast-If you were hoping for a custom omlette station and fresh waffles you will be disappointed. They do however have what I like the call a 3D Pancake Printer! It made 2 fresh pancakes at the push of a button. They were pretty good! Everything else was just your typical continental breakfast, pastry’s (that were a little dry mind you), fruit, yogurt, toast and cereal. They had coffee, tea and juice but no hot chocolate sadly.
Dishes-The plates in the room were not totally clean, they had some food residue stuck to them, its an easy enough fix, just a small lack of attention to detail in my mind, not a deal breaker.
Furnace/AC-Each room seems to have a air pump unit in it for hot/cold, they were super loud. We turned ours off at night but still could hear the units in other rooms working on and off through the night. I don’t sleep well with white noise, especially fans, for some reason and I have acute hearing so it made some nights a little more challenging to get a decent sleep.
The Bed-We have stayed in hotels from Vancouver to Italy and down to Mexico, never have I “slept” on a mattress so hard in my life. At one point in the night I had to move to the couch because my back was so sore. The staff did try to give us another room that may be more comfy but we couldn’t find anything, again kudos to the staff for being so great! If you are a fan of a firm mattress you will be fine, personally I prefer a soft mattress.
All in all like most hotels there is good and bad and so much of it is personal preference, if the mattress’ were changed 100% I would stay here again, but if I can’t get a good night’s sleep then that is a deal breaker for me.

Just stayed at this hotel on the long weekend. Not really impressed. I’ve stayed at better coast hotels. My biggest complaint is the bed. We stayed in the pet friendly area as we had our large dog with us. I like a firm mattress, but this was way too hard. The mattress was so hard that even my dog (who usually sleeps on the bed with us) refused to sleep on it and took the couch. We did speak with the hotel staff and they did try to resolve the issue. Taane (working the front desk. great guy. very friendly) offered other available rooms, however the beds were just as hard. We ended up taking the mattress from the fold out bed and placing it on top of the bed. This resolved out issue. Not ideal but it worked. The hotel did give us back some of the money for our room as well.
In addition, on the first night we ordered pizza (Mami’s pizza) we went to use the plates that were in the rooms kitchen and found them to be dirty.
The continental breakfast was limited. Not bad but not ideal either. Found the pastries to be very dry. They do have a machine that makes pancakes though which my wife found amusing. Not bad she said. There is a pool and a hot tub. I didn’t get a chance to check it out though.
Would I stay here again? No.
Reason? strictly the bed. If I can’t good night sleep I won’t stay. Simple.
I can handle dirty dishes, loud heaters (forgot to mention that), and lack luster continental breakfasts, but I need a good bed.
This was strictly a business trip so I did not get much time to really look around Osoyoos and comment on other surrounding areas.

Business Road Trip Stop
I travel for a living and stay in hotels over 180 times per year and I have also stayed in many Coast Hotels across British Columbia in the past 20 or so years. This hotel is a clean comfortable location but, the newer pricing structure will make me re-think my time so I can avoid Osoyoos on future business trips. There are multiple other options available and with a little online research you may wish to look around first.
