Thanks again to the staff at The Sierra Sands! Our mini family suite had enough room we felt we could really stretch out and relax after being on the dunes all day. Exceptionally clean, quiet and comfortable. The facilities are so nice with the fire pits and hot tub! We had peace of mind about our equipment with the security... More

Everything from booking to check out and departure was absolutely amazing! The staff were all incredibly helpful, friendly and thoughtful, right down the housekeeper who folded our daughters blanket into a heart on the bed. This place is a must stay, can't wait for a return visit ☺ Kudos Sierra Sands, you nailed excellent facilities and phenomenal customer service!

This hotel is one of our favorite places to stay! It's exceptionally clean (inside and out), conveniently located, with a nice pool and fire pits for campfires in the evening! There is room for trailer parking and a bike path that goes into town. The best thing about Sierra Sands is the staff. The owners and staff are helpful, friendly... More

At the last minute, I decided to getaway for a fall weekend. Although I've been coming to the area for years, it was my first time at Sierra Sands and it was a perfect place to stay. Clean rooms, comfortable beds, well kept, and very helpful/friendly staff. It's a great family owned alternative to the chains. Close to lots of... More

We stay at this hotel every Father's Day Weekend for our annual trip to the dunes. Very clean inside and outside, family owned and operated - super pleasant people! Staff has always been very accommodating in regards to our request for the same room year after year.

Check in and out was extremely easy and Sean at the front desk was very friendly with suggestions on what to do in and around Mears. The beds were comfortable, room and carpet clean and bathroom clean. This is a two-story hotel with an outside walkway. There is an outdoor pool, large play area in the back with fire pit... More
