This place was one of the nicest hotels! No, it wasn't the Ritz, no glam. But it was beautifully kept. Stayed there 3 nights, never saw as much as a bug in the hallways. The pool and hottub were sparkling. The staff was friendly and helpful. It was my son's 17th birthday and the owner Shaun even took the time... More

I had some misgivings prior to my arrival before I got there as it is a "family" lodge. I don't care for kids. Well, the place turned out to be amazing. There was plenty for kids to do on the grounds and nearby, so my room was always quiet. The people that own it, are on site. Everything was clean,... More

This was an unbelievable place to stay! A family run hotel that takes pride in their business! The rooms were clean, the staff was friendly and bent over backwards to make our stay enjoyable! The location was in the heart of it all, and the staff was very knowledgeable about where to go and what to do! We had a... More

Very friendly and helpful staff. Clean comfortable rooms. Shopping, dining and entertainment all within walking distance. Pool was nice too. Great value on packages offered for dunes and room. We were completely satisfied and would stay again.

We stayed here while visiting the dunes. It was very nice, clean, very friendly staff, and affordable. Both frond desk staff I spoke to were very friendly and genuinely seemed to want to make sure we had a great visit to the area.

I think my title probably says it all, but I can go on and on about our stay. I have never been to a hotel where the entire staff was all so helpful, nice and pleasant, even the cleaning ladies. The pool was crystal clear. I didn't get it but it sure was inviting. Our room was exactly as shown... More

We stayed in family suite, which had bunk beds and queen bed. Room was very clean! Staff was very nice and helpful. This hotel makes sure that you are happy and will make any effort to do so. If my family was coming back to this area I would stay here for sure.

It has been 8 years since last time I was at Silver Lake and I stayed at the Sierra Sands then, so I went with what I know. I brought my boys for their first time to the dunes and got a deluxe room. WOW, the resort is better than I remember! The rooms are like brand new, the pool... More

My family stayed here just this past weekend and loved it. Very clean, practical and very close to all the attractions but quiet. The playground was great for the kids and they have 2 fire pits in the back. Get there early enough to reserve it. Only complaint is that they don't supply the wood, you have to buy it... More

Decided to stay here based on other Trip Advisor ratings and we are glad we did. The staff was friendly and attentive, rooms were clean and the hotel is located very close to the dunes, restaurants, etc. Since this was our first time to the area, we relied on the staff to guide us to restaurants, rentals and activities for...
