The Golden Sands is in a great location right across from Lake Okanagan. It's reasonable and has a nice pool.

What a great family resort. Heidi is such a great resort manager. She is warm and helpful! She makes sure all is looked after for your stay. Room service is excellent. Rooms are bit older but very clean and staff are helpful. Great pool! Our children and grandchildren loved it. We've been coming her for 25 years and we'll continue!

Location of this motel is the big attraction to me, right across the street from the beach, the rooms are very spacious, clean with a heated outdoor pool, BBQ included. The beds are quite comfortable and it is very peaceful and we had a very restful night

We booked this motel sight unseen for a six day stay at the end of May 2014 to attend a wedding in Penticton. The majority of guests were staying here so we were given a group rate. We booked a three bedroom suite for our stay. No complaints whatsoever. Clean, spacious and great staff! The grounds of the motel were... More

The rooms are clean and spacious with cleaning services once a week. If there was a problem with the room? it was fixed ASAP. Wi-fi is top notch and the laundry facilities are reasonably priced.

We stayed here aug 5-7 and had a pleasant experience. We had room 112 which has a kitchenette with a nice size fridge and apt size stove. Bathroom is a bit tiny but we weren't in the room much for it to be a concern! Bed was comfortable enough and had a great air conditioner in it. We liked the... More
