Sandy Beach Motel

Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed 29 June 2014

The town of Osoyoos has many places to stay but I think we picked the gem! We stayed in a two bedroom cottage which was very clean, well appointed and centrally located. The staff/management was extremely pleasant and helpful. Hope that I get a chance to visit this spot again and will definitely be staying at the Sandy Beach Motel.

We were passing through for the night on a road trip and had a reservation at the Sandy Beach Motel. The pictures on the website don't do this place justice. The owners, Sherry and Brent, seem to be really hands on and made us feel very welcome. The grounds are beautiful, as is the beach front. The rooms are well equipped and comfortable. The only negative was the air conditioning unit in our suite didn't work very well and it was quite warm to sleep. Other than that we had a great stay.

If ever you plan on spending some time in Osoyoos, this is the place to choose. Their 1st place rating is well deserved. The moment we drove into the parking lot, we knew we had arrived at a very special place. The hosts, Sherry and Brent, were very welcoming and knowledgeable about the various activities in the area. The studio we rented satisfied all our needs. We had a beautiful view of the lake from our balcony. Tons of rose bushes on the property.....beautiful!! To top it off, Sherry and Brent gave us a very special treat for our wedding anniversary (a secret between us!!). We will always have very fond memories of our 3-night stay at the Sandy Beach Motel.

We found the sandy beach motel with an internet search. The pictures looked good and the price was great. What we didn't realize was how clean, friendly and welcoming this motel would be. The beach is great and right at your door with plenty of beach chairs and loungers. Kids are more than welcome and the rooms were roomy and well equipped with everything. For a motel right on the beach it was unreal how clean it was. The owners were there to greet us and welcomed us in like family. I'm very happy to have found this gem and will be returning in the near future.

We have stayed at this excellent motel on the lake for a week on two occasions. The grounds are beautifully manicured and there is a great play area at the back for families with children as well as a clean, sandy beach in the front. There are six large barbecues located throughout the site with lots of seating provided. The rooms are very clean; the beds are comfortable; and the kitchens have recently been renovated. The owners, Brent and Sherry, live onsite; are very friendly and professional, and offer tips every day on things to see and do in the area. Their cleaning staff are friendly as well. We would highly recommend a stay at Sandy Beach and have already booked a week for May 2015. We are sure you will enjoy the experience as much as we do.

We went on a road trip just for the fun of it and stayed at the Sandy Beach Motel. It's absolutely beautiful, a diamond in the rough amongst some older Hotel/Motel establishments. Sherry and Brent were very courteous and hospitable. We had a 2 bedroom lake view suite, which was very comfortable for the short stay.

A couple of things to improve on are fans or air conditioners in the bedrooms and bigger bathrooms or two bathrooms in suites. If you're traveling with a family you need two bathrooms, especially if you have teenagers.

Besides that we would highly recommend the Motel to anyone traveling to Osoyoos. It's probably one of the best family places to go.

We are looking forward to going back soon

Room Tip: The cabins are attached, yet separated with court yards, The one 3 bedroom has a waiting list. Depen...

After finding this motel on the internet we phoned and immediately were impressed by the friendly welcome and helpful assistance. The internet presented a nice motel, clean and nicely appointed, however the reality was so much better. From the clean sandy beach to the beautiful rose plants and landscaping and the clean and nicely decorated room, we were really pleased and wished we had more than one nights stay booked. The owners checked that we had everything we needed and provided information about restaurants and food options nearby. We really enjoyed our stay and will be recommending this motel to friends and family (and already have). We will be back, and for longer next time.

Room Tip: All rooms have water views.
