I was borderline horrified at the treatment my friends and I received at this hotel. We booked this hotel weeks in advance for a room to sleep 6 people. Upon arrival, we were met with an incredibly unfriendly and rude young woman at the front desk who confirmed this booking and gave us our keys. At around 11pm that night... More

it has a good location right across the beach and next to a water-sports rental store; the beach is really nice; a convenient store is downstairs; our studio had a kitchen with 2 fridges, so we were able to save some money and cook; the room was clean and comfortable, no issues; the manager and the housekeeper were polite and...

Our unit's bathroom flooded during the evening. I called down to the office around 7 pm and told the girl in charge what do i do? The water is coming up from the toilet. She said just leave it. The water ran through the bathroom at which point i was throwing towels down. I called her again and said this... More

Well run, super friendly, clean and inviting...we would definitely stay here again. Fresh vegetables and herbs from the multitude of gardens..delicious dinner and breakfast. Close to town but just far enough away to enjoy the quiet and peace of the area.

It's an older place, but seems well maintained. The rooms were clean, the staff I interacted with were pretty good. But the suits themselves were simply average, and the building has very few amenities. Pro: Great location right across the street from the beach. Prices are reasonable. Con: Air conditioner units in 2 of the three rooms didn't work properly... More

Just got back from a wonderful weekend in Penticton for a car show. Booked a 3 bedroom and stayed with 3 couples. Lots of space in this suite and never felt crowded. It had a full stocked kitchen, lovely living area and brand new sofa beds. 2 rooms had a queen bed and the 3rd room had a double. This... More

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.
