Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 Timothy Get away
This was a nice place to get away for the thanksgiving weekend. Within 5 hrs of Vancouver and without the rain. Osoyoos is the only desert in Canada and the weather was beautiful. Spectacular view from our room and comfortable room. This was our second time at this place and glad we choose a room facing the lake.

We experienced nice and clear autumn weather, and, as the HI is situated on the dam of Osoyoos, the location is perfect. Very friendly people at the reception and in the restaurant, which has also a good chef.

The location of the hotel, especially rooms an the lake side are good. I would be leery of the highway side, due to noise. However, the lack of maintenance at this hotel is apparent. We had a lakeshore walkout, however, upon entering the room we noticed stains on the ceiling and peeling wallpaper, so nowhere near the standards that I have come to expect from a Holiday Inn over the past few years. After we were unpacked we noticed that the heater in our room did not work. The front desk was helpful and provided us with an oil heater. However, with no working circulating fan, it was difficult to move the heat around causing discomfort for us and our young baby. We then noticed a slow draining tub, that was remediated when asked, but this kind of thing is a pet peeve as housecleaning staff should notice this issue every time the room is cleaned, and should be repaired long before guests arrive. In short some value for the money here, but don't expect regular Holiday Inn standards. We planned to stay several days but checked out on day two and found a better lakeshore room in another hotel. This place could be great with some updating and basic maintenance.
