Important Travel Tips *Read & Share!*

Earlier this summer we shared several #travel tips on our facebook page https://www.facebook.com/CGI.Penticton

I thought I would share my favourite 14 tips with you! Great food for thought when travelling!

Travel Tip #1: Choosing whether to stay in a bed and breakfast or hotel. Those who desire a “home away from home” experience may seek out a bed and breakfast. A B&B is usually family owned and operated & are often private homes. One guest compared staying at Casa Grande Inn, B&B on the Beach to staying at their favorite Aunt’s house!

Travel Tip # 2: It is always advisable to get travel insurance, or cancellation insurance. Look in to it the next time you book any getaway, whether it be for 2 days or 2 weeks!

Travel Tip # 3: Before you book on line, try calling the hotel directly. Chances are they have a special discount rate available when booking by phone. So the next time you travel to Penticton give us a call 250-276-3030

Travel Tip #4: Remember to respect other guests when travelling. We know you’re on vacation, and out to have a good time. But when you return to your hotel or B&B, remember, other guests might be trying to sleep. Some are here on business, others for medical reasons, not everyone is out to party. A simple respect for others will go a long way to make everyone’s stay more enjoyable.

Travel Tip # 5: Are you planning a special occasion alongside your visit to Casa Grande Inn! We can help you make your visit extra special! ask about custom gift baskets! — at Casa Grande Inn, B&B on the Beach.

Travel Tip # 6: Plan Ahead. Booking a weekend getaway whether it be with friends, family, or loved ones may sound like a good idea at the time, but what if you get there and the town it not what you expected or The cool attractions are closed, or worse, booked up. Plan ahead. Make reservations! It will save you loads of time, money and aggravation.

Travel Tip #7: If you are booking on line, always make sure you specify the correct # of people you expect to put in a room when booking. Many places have very specific occupancy restrictions, and if you show up with extra people, you could be turned away, without a refund. It’s a legal liability issue. Remember, Kids are people too! Unfortunately, Casa Grande Inn does not take kids under 10 years of age, and all of our rooms are double occupancy only. Happy Holidays!

Travel Tip # 8: Many Hotels, motels and B&B’s are pet friendly, and many also have pets living on premises. If you have allergies, you should take an extra minute to review the info supplied by the hotel to ensure you are not surprised by a 4 legged friend running around. Yes, Casa has a couple of pet friendly rooms, and non pet friendly and yes, we have Happy, a Yorkie living on site. We also post pics of her on all of our booking sites to make our future guests aware. Take a minute, check the pics, before you book. Or better yet call and chat with the front desk 250-276-3030

Travel Tip # 9 – Pack light! It doesn’t matter if you are travelling by car or by plane, packing light has its advantages. Also check with the hotel. It may provide in room soaps and shampoos. (we do) One less thing to pack.

Travel Tip # 10 Call your credit card company before you leave to put a travel alert on your card. Also make note of their international customer service number, just in case you lose your card.

Travel Tip # 11: At this time, Visa Debit Cards do not work when booking over the phone or over the internet at some Canadian locations. (us included) They only work in person. So make sure when booking on line you use an actual visa or mastercard or amex to guarantee your reservation and avoid frustration.

Travel Tip #12 – There are many advantages to travelling mid week, as opposed to weekends. Sometimes hotel rates can be cheaper. Some offer midweek specials. Attractions and restaurants are less busy. If you don’t have to travel on a weekend, consider a Sunday through Thursday getaway

Travel Tip # 13 – Don’t lie to your accommodation. If you are travelling with kids or pets, always let the hotel, motel, B&B know. Some places have age restrictions or occupancy maximums associated with their rooms. If you lied when booking, and say, you show up with 2 kids when you only put down 2 adults, you could be denied your room and lose your deposit and maybe even the cost of your whole reservation. Honesty is the best policy.

Travel Tip # 14…If you book on line with a credit card, you may be required to present that SAME credit card upon check in. Remember to bring it with you! :)

Vote for Happy!!

Happy in a Basket
If you have stayed at Casa Grande Inn within the last year, then you have met Happy. She is our resident greeter at the B&B.
She is now 5 years old, and she spent her first 4 years breeding like mad in a puppy mill. Thankfully a year ago, the BC SPCA seized the dogs at this puppy mill and they were put up for adoption. That’s when we met Happy!
She is the most amazing dog. Sweet, lovable, and not a barker, which is rare in small dogs.
Fido is hosting a casting call to find the next dog to star in their next commercial, and I am hoping it gets to be Happy. But she needs your help…VOTES! People must vote for the dogs to win. Most votes wins. Please follow this link and vote for Happy! You can vote every day from now until Sept 10, 2012.
Vote for Happy!!! Thanks!

June fun in the Okanagan Sun!

Special Occasion
June has arrived, and with it comes so many exciting events likes weddings, reunions, anniversaries, concerts, festivals and much much more. At Casa Grande Inn, we love weddings! The rose garden across the street hosts many weddings over the summer, and of course it’s a spectacular place to have your wedding photos taken. We often sit on our patio and admire all the beautiful brides and the wedding parties as they carry on with their special day. Our location makes Casa Grande Inn the perfect place to stay for weddings. We have a very private room called the Siesta Room that is perfect for the bride and groom as it is outside of the main Bed and Breakfast. Then we have 5 other rooms available for members of the wedding party, family and friends. We have a few very large patios where all the guests can sit and enjoy a glass of wine and mingle. If the weather isn’t nice our common living room is another great place to visit. Plus the Historic SS Sicamous is also right across the street, and it also hosts many events, fundraisers and weddings.

classic
June is also the month when we start to see more and more classics on the road. Penticton is full of classic cars, trucks and motorcycles. They are so gorgeous! We love to sit on the front lakeview patio and watch all the vehicles cruise by. Especially when the classics are out, which is almost every day! Besides the weather, another reason classics are so popular in Penticton is because of a fantastic classic car festival called the Peach City Beach Cruise. It’s June 22 – 24 this year, and falls on the same weekend as the Penticton Elvis Festival! This weekend will be rocking with live music, Elvis tribute artists, and cool classics. This year’s headliner at the Penticton Elvis Fest is Gino Monopoli. He is an amazing Elvis Tribute Artist, make sure you get tickets to see his Saturday night show at the PTCC (Penticton Trade & Convention Centre) He has stayed at Casa Grande Inn many times, and we have unofficially renamed the Hideaway after him! (at his request)

wine tours
June is also the perfect month to go on a wine tour. The botteling is done and the new releases are out. Many wines are limited production, and sell out early summer. So by wine touring now, you have an opportunity to sample and purchase many of these sell outs, before they sell out.

bike

Like to bike ride? Bring your bike on vacation to Casa Grande Inn. We offer bike lock up on the garage, so you don’t have to keep it on your vehicle! You can even go on bike ride wine tours! We are located so close to so many fantastic trails, and some of these trails are located along side a few wineries.

If you like live music the Dream Cafe and Voodoos Lounge often have live entertainment in the evenings. And for a complete list of events happening in this area this month, visit www.pentictontourism.com/events
