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

We recently held our family reunion at the Sands. The location and all the amenities were just what we needed. The kids loved swimming in the pool and the lake. The picnic tables and grills worked out well for our large group cook-out. We would definitely recommend this place to others.

After reading the recent reviews, most of them are right on the money! We recently spent a 4-day weekend at Silver Sands and had a great time. The motel rooms are small and nothing more than a standard 2-queen room w/ a fridge. The room was very clean and fit our needs. You definitely pay for the location, especially on... More

The people that worked here were nice but the rooms were very small and Very expensive for a motel room. It is right in the heart of the town and in walking distance to most things. The shower head was really low, at about my shoulder and they have well water so it was pretty hard to get used to... More

As soon as I pulled up it was not what I expected it to be. The place calls themselves a "resort" or a hotel, but once you get to your room the truth comes out. The room looked like a cheap motel you see in cities where people rent by the week or live there. All the papers said it... More

This person came in with an old brochure and was very angry about paying more than the starting out price in the old brochure. Management tried to tell her it was an old brochure and show her the new one but she still argued. The staff person asked her if she paid the price she was quoted when she made... More

The resort is right next to 3 rather loud go kart tracks although they quit running at 11;00 or so. Just a heads up to be ready for a bit of noise. The room itself was fine. They have a $50 cancellation fee so beware.

This is a "resort" in the same way a lot of trailer parks are called "estates". While the property also has "cottages" (very small houses), we stayed in the "motel" part. It was not what I expected! Yet, it fit with the rest of the town. The areas are small and cramped, even though the pictures on their website make... More
