After searching throughout Penticton to find a big room motel we found this Gem. We rented the three bedroom for a few months and it was so perfect and big enough we wanted to keep it.lol It had everything we needed, was sunny and bright with an amazing view of the mountain. The staff are wonderful and the motel is... More

2014 October 26. We stayed there at the end of September for 4 days and our stay at the Golden Sands was excellent. We went as the whole family taking two suites and one standard room, so nine of us. All the staff were wonderful, and very helpful. We were in the two bedroom suite which faced the beach, and... More

We enjoyed our stay here. Clean and modern living, kitchen and bedrooms with comfortable beds. The bathroom could use some updating, but the pricing was reasonable and the location couldn't be beat. Have recommended it to friends and will be back.

You can't beat the location-right across the street from Okanagan Lake and really close to the entry point for the canal ride. You can walk anywhere from The Golden Sands-the market, downtown, the casino etc. Nice swimming pool-all the kids totally enjoyed themselves! A suggestion -our room needed curtains-there was too much outdoor light coming through the blinds.

The Golden Sands is in a great location right across from Lake Okanagan. It's reasonable and has a nice pool. My suggestions to the Golden Sands would be to 1) add a soap dispenser in the shower and 2) more importantly please put drapes over top of the blinds so that people cannot see into the room through the gaps...

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!

Our stay was from July 18th to the 26th 2014. My first impression to my last impression only got better. Our room was clean, bright and comfy.

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
