Reviewed 7 May 2014 via mobile

Family with 2 kids (teenager and 2 y.o). Just perfect little vacation, great location, you have everything you need for kids to play and spend their time. Rooms are great, we had I believe a room with renovated kitchen, all looked like brand new, very clean. Owners are always on site willing to help. Will come back.

We just love to hear about the family experiences at Sandy Beach Motel. Sounds like everyone a great time. We have a little fun for all, from playground to tennis to just good beach fun and lots of sand toys. Thanks for the wonderful review! See you again soon.

Very nice grounds. Very friendly caring talkative hosts. We would've liked a lounge chair to lay on the beach on and asked for some and where told they didn't have any but we were given beach towels. Later on we saw many lounge chairs under storage area. Although we were not offended we just appreciated the towels we were offered. That's the only con we have which really wasn't a big deal. We'd recommend this motel to anyone visiting osoyoos. :-)

Thank you very much for your review! Glad you enjoyed your stay with us. We apologize for the mere oversight, as we do have beach loungers but they were in the very back of our storage
space and weren't able to access them immediately. Thank you for being understanding.
We welcome you back anytime. Thanks again!

Our hosts, owner Sherry and Brett, not only made our stay warm and wonderful, but also went above and beyond with their advice and assistance which made our stay that much richer.

The facility, grounds, and room were immaculate. This property is situated right on the beach on Osoyoos Lake, and even the sand was groomed.

Our unit was a 2 bedroom suite, with well-stocked kitchen, reclining sofa, table and chairs and even a broom so we could take care of any errant sand we tracked in off the beach. Outside each ground floor unit is a picnic table and 2 Adirondack chairs.

I would highly recommend the Sandy Beach Motel to anyone thinking of vacationing in the Osoyoos/South Okanagan area!

My husband and I stayed here for two nights while in town for our Grandson's hockey tournament. Sherry greeted us and gave us the tour and made us feel completely at home. We booked a studio and it was newly re-done and simply lovely. We were on the second floor with a lovely balcony with table and chairs to sit and have our morning coffee. The room was very clean, well layed out and very quiet (this is early spring, so not sure what it might be like in summer for sound). The kitchen is very well equiped with anything you might need, and the barbicues and outdoor eating area is really nice. It is in a good location for activities and long walks on the two beaches. There was a great playground area for the grandkids to play when they came over and a fabulous front lawn and beach. My daughter said "this is so like Mexico, only colder". Not in summer I bet. They stayed at the Walnut Grove Resort and their room was also a studio, but not nearly as nice as ours. And ours was considerably less costly. Will definately be coming back.

Room Tip: My tip is always the same...stay on the upper floor if possible. No foot noise from above.

Thanks for choosing sandy Beach Motel and the great review as well! We have been compared to Mexico or the Mediterranean, especially when the heat is cranked up in the summer. We are very family friendly, so there are lots of kids plus activities in the summer.
( canoe, kayak, tennis. volleyball). Hope that hockey might bring you back, but you're welcome anytime. Thanks again!

This is a great location, right on the beach. I have stayed here several times, in rooms such as the 2 bedroom (nice, clean, simple rooms) to the 1 bedroom suite (the kitchen is like you'd find in a home, nice furnishings), and have always enjoyed our stay. There are BBQs available and a large outdoor eating area, kids playground, and outdoor seating. This is a very quiet complex, and the owners are super helpful and accommodating. We use this location for cycling adventures and the owners are cyclist friendly (store your clean bike in your room - no grease monkies). Highly recommend.

Room Tip: let the owners know how many people will be in your party so they can make sure everyone has a good...

We stayed in October 2013 for a couple of nights during our wine tour. I am really bad with directions and map reading so got a bit lost getting to the motel, I phoned and was provided with instructions to get there. We had a basic suite, it was wonderful, lots of dishes, utensils and it was very clean. The owners referred us to a number of great local restaurants, the best was withing walking distance. The restaurant is so appreciative of their guests and treated us with wonderful service. The only thing was I did not read the notice that the housekeeping is not done daily, the owners kindly replaced the towels I had left in the bathbub. Thank you for making our visit so smooth.

Thank you for your review! We appreciate all feedback from our guests, so we can make your stay more enjoyable next time. You weren't the only one who got lost coming here in October as we had major construction on our main access road into the motel. I apologize for the inconvenience. Glad you enjoyed your stay. Hopefully your next visit will be even smoother!
Thanks again.

We stayed in Late July in a 1 bedroom suite on the water. Nothing but good things to say. Clean quiet. Hosts which were the owners were very friendly and helpful. Everything we needed was in the room and more. Liked the deck. We were on the second floor so we overlooked the beach. Great for sipping a drink and looking at the scenery. Just across the street is the Sage Pub which we thought was great for food and drinks and it also have a beer and wine store attached. Was nice to have a few drinks with dinner or mabe a few more because we knew we didn't have to drive. Nice public water front beach area nearby which made for a nice walk. Don't know how anyone could have a bad thing to say about this place or the people. This place is more than a motel so don't let the name stop you from checking it out. I have been to Osoyoos 15 consecutive years, had seen the motel before and never thought much of it. Glad we finally checked it out a little closer. Will be my new first choice while visiting Osoyoos.
