I stayed at the motel from October through to the end of January. I had a Great Lake front room. The room was nicely laid out with 2 bedrooms living space , kitchen and dining area. The only issue is the noise from the upper tenants can get annoying as the floors are wood laminate and a bit loud. The...

For an inexpensive stay directly accross from the beach of Okanagan Lake this is it. The room was clean, the staff was friendly, and the bed was comfortable. For an older motel I was pleasantly surprised.

We spent 2 nights in a one bedroom kitchenette that had a nice living room. Clean and comfortable, everything that we need for a reasonable price in the should season. Across from the beach and a few blocks from the casino. Walking distance to pubs and restaurants - Friendly staff. I would definitely come back!

We stayed in a 3 bedroom suite. Was great, nice and clean. We also had our dogs with us. Swimming pool is good and close to the beach and lots of restaurants to choose from. Think it will be a great place to stay for a longer time. People were very friendly and I forgot my prescribed medicine in the...

You cannot find a better location. This hotel is located close to all amenities, beach, restaurants, playground etc. We stayed in a 2 bedroom facing the courtyard. Room was clean and stocked with everything we needed. Staff was very friendly and attentive.

Dont waste your time on this hotel. Their service is awful and the staff show no compassion towards their tennants. Their website is not resourceful as it is poorly constructed and will lead to contradiction. Website says they are pet friendly, yet dont allow cats. Are cats not pets afterall? The staff is uptight and if they feel like they...

Hello, we stayed 6 nights at the Golden Sands in Penticton. It was the dirtiest motel we have ever stayed in, the carpet was filthy and when we complained they dry shampooed it which helped a little but we still wore our sandals full time in the room. The floor was never wet mopped and seldom even swept. The sink...

Great location near the end of the beach strip across from the SS Sicamous. I was visiting with family in March so it was quiet on the stripe at this time of year, can not say if that is the same for the summer months. Enough space with two bedrooms, kitchen and eating area. Great for a get away in...

“Book the 3 bedroom suite in advance if you need a bigger place as it is popular because it is so wonderful for a motel room! The 2 bedrooms are great too just a bit smaller. You just can`t lose at this place!”
