One of the best location we've stayed at. Beautiful view. We stayed at this property for 2 night and just fell in love with this place. Great food menu! Well managed property! We are coming back in October!

Recently had dinner here with one of my friends and we struggled finding something we really wanted to eat. We settled due to the lack of menu options. The bruschetta was a big let down and surprisingly small for the price. The server I must say was very friendly. The other let down was that we couldnt even enjoy the... More

Thank you for your review. Please allow me to explain our menu offerings. First, and the most important, is only fresh and seasonal products are offered at the Sands. We feel that a large menu requires us to freeze a lot of our inventory and that is simply not acceptable. With 15 entrée selections, 5 appetizers, 4 entrée salads, 6... More

The room was a good size and the view was gorgeous--every room looks out onto the lake and the sunsets are beautiful. Rooms were extremely clean. The restaurant attached had great food, excellent service, beautiful views and was very reasonably priced. We would and will go back to Sands on Golden Lake again.

I could not believe how absolutely lovely and clean the rooms are. And the beds ... fabulous! The best bed I've slept in, in a motel for ages and we do a lot of traveling. The rooms are large and roomy with a fantastic view and deck along the back. We had 2 dbl beds, a sofa, fridge, coffee maker... More

We had very nice stay in this hotel. The room was very clean with a balcony overlooking the beach and golden lake. It was a very peaceful setting. Staff were very nice and friendly. The restaurant was also nice, reasonably priced and convenient. The hotel is about a 1 hr drive to Algonquin park.

We stayed in room 12 which is accessible and we thoroughly enjoyed the spacious room which had a refrigerator, a table for 2, a wonderful TV, AC, superb beds and a balcony overlooking the lake. The staff were all very friendly and very helpful. My sister has mobility problems so we took advantage of room service twice which was great.... More

We stayed there Sunday night, and found the rooms to be a good size. The staff were great, and it is right on Golden Lake. The room was on ground level to walk into, and the front was on the second floor with a balcony overlooking the lake. The lake is pretty and the motel has a great beach. The... More

We were in the area and needed a room last minute so I looked on the map and saw Sands on Golden Lake, for a reasonable price and booked it. Our room was lovely and light and spacious. No air conditioning but there was a nice breeze in through the sliding glass doors and a fan once the door was... More

We live in the area and going to the Sands is a weekly event. We are known. They always find us a table and we always tip well. Last we took our visiting niece and her new husband there for a celebratory meal. We arrived by boat. Docked and enjoyed a lovely meal as the sun set. Our favourite waitress,... More
