My wife and I stayed here for 3 nights in July, 2014. It was very cool for July. This hotel is right in the middle of everything. It's within walking distance of the lake, the watercraft rentals, the Jeep and ATV rentals, the restaurants, the general store, the arcade and go carts, and the ice cream places. The staff were...

The owners were very pleasant during the check in process. Location was perfect because it was within walking distance to all the attractions and restaurants. The pool was clean and nicely kept up. If people wanted to BBQ there were around 4 grills lined up next to the pool area. The price was decent, however my main complaint is that... More

This was our first time staying at this location. The location is very convenient, within walking distance of just about everything. However, if you are looking for a "quiet" stay this is not for you. The go cart track across the street and the traffic leaving the dunes in the evening is noisy. The pool was clean but a little...

Doors do have security chains vs. deadbolts as secondary lock Pool is maintained between 75-80 deg. per health department recomendations Our location "is" great, but yes, being in the center of Silver Lake where all of the action is can be a little busy. Our large courtyard area is sheltered from the activity around and is relativly quite, and the... More

My teenage daughter and I spent a night here and really enjoyed it! We had a room in the beach house that faced the Dunes, it was small but newly remodeled and clean. The other guests in our building were really nice and we all watched a storm come through on the balcony. The pool was nice as itbwas really... More

This was our second time staying at the Sands. The first time was in one of the small rooms on he parking lot side. I didn't love it. This year we rented one of the two bedroom condos. Our family had two additional rooms. We loved the condo, the location, the amenities. We were a little worried about the noise... More

Much better prices than the place we checked out down the road. This place is clean and well kept. The restaurant is the best. We had the home made fish and chips...EXCELLENT! There's lots to see and do here, a wonderful place for a family vacation. We'll be back!

My first stay at this property - it is very clean, older western Michigan property, family run, and I would recommend it for a couple of nights. The price was typical for peak-season Lake Michigan vacation rooms. Again, I was impressed it was well maintained and very CLEAN - a must for my wife and I. The front desk people... More

Stayed there more than once, there are nearby activities for kids. Location is good, sort of a throwback hotel-showing some age. Expecting a heated pool for what you pay- so hope for warm weather. It does get a little noisy with the go carts next door. If not in a suite, the rooms are very, very small.

Recently stayed with our 2 children, ages 4 and 6, for our 10th anniversary. We all had a wonderful time! Plenty of choices for food and activities. Enjoyed our balcony room because you can see all the different vehicles going to and from the dunes; some very interesting. Would definitely recommend, especially with any age of kids.

Silver Sands Resort is a cute, well-kept resort. We recently stayed 3 nights in room 36, which faces the dunes. Though we endured a couple days of rain, it was a nice stay. Rooms are clean, pool is really nice. Dave, the owner, even took the time to open the pool late for my son after the rain stopped. For... More
