We stayed here for 3 nights in a 1 bedroom suite. The suite was clean and the kitchen reasonably equipped (although salt and pepper would be much appreciated). The bed was comfortable, the sofa appeared to be new and the table and chairs relatively new. The WiFi was excellent.

Clean, comfortable, spacious room, and quiet too. I think the manager is new, and they are doing a great job. They were very helpful and accommodating for my husband, who recently stayed here for the annual Jazz Festival.

This is our second stay at the Rochester and we are booked for next year!

Stayed here last year after trying to find something last minute and this hotel was one we could find with availability and very reasonable rates. Always a bit suspect due to the proximity to the beach -

Thank you for your kind review we loved having your group here this year and are looking forward to your return next year, hopefully with less smoke. I have said from the time I started with this property it is a little hidden gem in Penticton. Yes I do believe our rates are very reasonable for the Lakeshore Beach area. Who needs a pool when were steps away from the Hotel is one of the largest natural pools (Lake) with a gorgeous beach. Our rooms mainly the One Bedrooms are spacious and include A Queen size bed in the Bedroom, a pullout sofa in the living, an apartment size kitchen with a sit down dining area. We will and are upgrading the rooms consistently, when you return I am positive you will see some more changes and upgrades. Also yes I have to agree the Housekeeping staff have done an amazing job keeping the rooms clean and up to standards as well as the property. Keep an eye out. Again Thank you for your review.

Thank you for your kind review. Yes I do believe we have an excellent location mere steps away from the beach, walking distance to downtown and different events being hosted down on the waterfront during the summer season as well close to some excellent restaurants. We will and are upgrading the rooms consistently, when you return I am positive you will see some more changes and more upgrades. Again Thank you for your review and we look forward to your return.

I have to be honest, originally when I booked the Rochester it was only because it was the only place available. I was pretty hesitant after reading so many bad reviews, but I have to say we were pleasantly surprised! The beds were really comfortable and the room was clean. It

Thank your review and feedback. We are in an excellent location across from the breach & close to downtown & all the festivals and events being held as well as great activities & restaurants. The Rochester is under New Management and changes are being made like the beds, sofa beds & bedding are all being upgraded.
