For the last five years, I've stayed at the Golden Sands at least a dozen times. I've never hesitated booking my friends here either. They're always happy I did. The lake is right across the street. The pool is crystal clean and refreshing. The bbq's are always a bonus as it just adds to the enjoyment. It's minutes to the... More

Stayed here again for three nights in September, and once again we were very impressed by both the motel and the friendly and efficient service provided by Heidi at the front desk. We always stay in the studio suite facing the street -perhaps a little noisier but with great views of the lake. The unit is well equipped with everything... More

Pool. Beach. Pub. All within a rocks throw. This motel is showing its age. The place where my parents might have taken the family back in the day. They never figured out the room numbering system so that was a challenge we quickly overcame. Great little pool. Lots of towels. Nice place to relax. The bed was a rack. Best... 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

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
