Hitting the links as part of a Kelowna hotel deal is a great way to get out and enjoy all that the Okanagan has to offer this summer.

Summertime in the Okanagan is peak travel season, which means finding the best Kelowna hotel deals can be a tricky affair. Following the age-old rules of supply-and-demand, prices are at high-season rates this time of year. That doesn’t mean deals can’t be had, but it does mean you’ll have to be a little more creative to find them.

Rather than focus on scoring a hotel deal, your time might be best spent investigating other cost-cutting measures that’ll keep you within your allotted travel budget.


Package Deals

People flock to the Okanagan from all over the world for many reasons. Two of the big ones include golf and wine, and many visitors are realizing they can combine their preferred activity (sipping chardonnay or swinging the clubs) with accommodation to earn Kelowna hotel deals.

For example, BEST WESTERN PLUS Kelowna Hotel & Suites offers access to some of the finest courses in the Okanagan, including:

  • Harvest Golf Club
  • Gallagher’s Canyon
  • Predator Ridge
  • Okanagan Golf Club
  • Tower Ranch Golf & Country Club
  • Black Mountain
  • Sunset Ranch
  • Shadow Ridge

For wine lovers, BEST WESTERN Kelowna partners with Okanagan Wine Country Tours to offer both full and half day excursions.


Free is Awesome

Anytime you can find something for free, it’s like money you don’t have to spend. While some Kelowna hotels charge additional fees for certain amenities, BEST WESTERN PLUS Kelowna Hotel & Suites offers free:

  • Hot breakfast buffet
  • High-speed Wireless and hardwire Internet
  • Free parking
  • Unlimited access to pool, hot tubs and fitness room

Plus, children 15 and under stay free, which makes family travel a whole lot cheaper.

Following the free theme, there’s plenty to do in the Okanagan that doesn’t require you to pull out your wallet. Venturing around Kelowna’s downtown core or spending a leisurely afternoon in City Park is a great way to soak in the summer lifestyle.

For more adventurous travellers, there are numerous walking and hiking trails within the city limits.


A Suite Deal

The cost of food and eating out while travelling can really put a dent in your travel budget if you’re not careful. With so many quality restaurants in Kelowna, it’s difficult not to be tempted to dine out.

However, if you’re serious about cutting costs, then booking a room with a self-catered suite will allow you to prepare your own meals (plus, you still get the hot breakfast).

Membership Has Its Privileges

If you’re a frequent traveller, there are a variety of membership cards you can use to earn hotel discounts and other rewards. Members of Best Western Rewards receive points that can be used for free nights, gift cards and more.

Other useful club cards include the BC Automobile Association (BCAA) and CAA.
