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

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
