“Can't wait to return!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 10, 2013

My husband & I visit Osoyoos every May & September & always return to Sandy Beach Motel. We
feel like it is our second home. The beach & grounds are beautifully maintained, the rooms are spotless & kitchens well equipped to allow you to cook your meals & enjoy the outdoor BBQs. The view of the lake & beach is wonderful from every unit. Hosts, Sherry & Brent are very professional as well as accommodating & friendly. Can't wait to return in September!

Staff is most friendly and helpful. We stayed only one night, but upon checkout, they offered us to go canoeing if we felt like it. Very helpful to suggest places to visit, and suggestions were great. The rooms are fully furnished, including fridge, stove, microwave, some ustensiles, etc. The room was very clean. Flatscreen TV included. Right in front of the lake, with a beach. Extremely good value for the price!!
Bathroom is large, but shower is small (it's a corner shower; no bath).

Thank you for the compliments! We try to keep ourselves current on everything from restaurants to wineries to other activities and attractions. Glad you enjoyed the canoe and saw Osoyoos from a different perspective. Next time maybe you will be able to stay longer!
The shower is in our handicapped suite, of which we have two.
All of our other suites though do have tub/shower combinations.
Thanks again for choosing Sandy Beach!

We booked at Sandy Beach for sentimental reasons having first stayed there 34 years ago. The physical buildings have changed but the warm, welcoming atmosphere remains the same as it was on our first visit. The rooms are well equipped and absolutely immaculate. The grounds are beautiful. The location is second to none--right on the beach and within an easy walk of excellent restaurants. We will not be waiting another 34 years to return. In fact, we have decided to make the Osoyoos trip an annual event and are already looking forward to next year.

Very clean, friendly and beautiful place to stay! The owners are very nice, professional and can give you a lot of information on the town and sites to see. We are so glad we picked this one off the website. Close to all amenities . All rooms have a view of the water and clean, clean did I mention it is clean? Provided is wagons to help with your luggage, kitchen and courtyard for the kids, separate from the other adults, great value for the money.

Thanks a lot for the review!! Our luggage wagons are great, because the cars are in the parking lot and not in front of your room so you can enjoy nothing but lakeviews. No rooms over the parking lot here. Glad you enjoyed your stay! See you soon!

Our family has been visting this motel for many years.This year we stayed in the newly built 3 bedroom suite .Fantastic view of beach with 2 balconys,1 facing north towards water,and the other facing west to enjoy the afternoon sunshine.The suite is very spacious with 2 full bathrooms, 1 being ensuite to master bedroom. Since we were with a large group, one thing we really enjoyed was having a dishwasher, which the standard rooms don't have. Brent and Sherri are always very kind and accomodating. We have already booked for next year

Room Tip: All rooms face water except garden suites

What a shame this place is tucked out of sight from the highway, but what a bonus if you are lucky enough to find it. Right on the beach this place is a real gem. Spotlessly clean, I mean spotless and so well equipped. The owners are as helpful as you could wish and obviously take a real pride in their property, both inside and out. Excellent value for money, in fact for the first time in as long as I can remember I didn't even ask for a discount!

Ideally situated for walks along the lake and with its beach right out front there are great views from most rooms, if you are heading to Osoyoos then you won't find better value or quality.

Thank you for the compliments on the cleanliness as we will pass that on to our housekeeping staff. It is nice to be tucked away sometimes as we don't hear the traffic noise from the highway. We really believe it is a gem, but we just love sharing it with all who will come.
Hope to see you soon!

For years my family has headed up to osoyoos, and the only place we will ever stay at is Sandy Beach Motel.
We usually go in late august though it sometimes may change depending on our schedule; honestly if you have a family this is the perfect place for you, that being said single's and couples would also love the studio suites available.
The large grass courtyard is a great area for kids to run around on while parents can keep an eye onto them at the same time, there are picnic tables located on the outside of every ground level suite and the upper suites have little tables as well for dinning. The beach is amazing. Unlike certain hotels that you may stay at while in Osoyoos the sand is so soft and barely has any rocks on it.
As for house keeping; well, thats all up to you, meaning you do all the cleaning yourself. Another positive is that there is a large tennis court out front, so tennis fans take this hotel into serious consideration.
The only thing that I don't really enjoy is when your staying there for a week or longer you need to wash your clothes, the laundary cost is quiite expensive.

Overall this is really a hotel you want to stay at as it has a friendly, at home kind of vibe that is good for everyone.

We thank you for your family friendly review. We truly feel that family time is important and what better place than at Sandy Beach, where there is something for every age.
Laundry is not a favorite on anybodies list. We have tried to be affordable for most and our prices for coin-op laundry is comparable to most laundry-mats. Our cycles are also longer than most coin-operated machines.
Thanks again!
