We are from Pennsylvania and we love to come to Michigan to 4-wheel on the sand dunes! Sierra Sands is a clean quaint quiet place to stay. They have a wonderful pool and hot tub. More than anything else the owners treat you like family!

Nice Lodge ! Room was neat and clean. The front desk was very helpful. They gave us information on things to do around. Best place to stay if you are visiting the sand dunes. We will stay here again for certain, and we highly recommend.

We really enjoyed our stay. It was a busy weekend but relatively quite considering the hotel was full. Nice hotel grounds with fire pits, playground, bbq grills and picnic tables. Would highly recommend!

Two of us came to ride the sand dunes right after Labor Day. I have stayed at many hotels across the United States and in 14 different countries, and never have I experienced better guest services than at Sierra Sands Family Lodge. This is a family owned hotel, and the owner, Sean Henry, takes personal care of the guests. Sean's... More

Very clean, perfect size pool for kids, close to everything, welcoming staff, great little breakfast, etc. nice extra touches like free wifi, water outside by pool area and plenty of hooks in the bathroom for towels and wet suits.

Very nice staff and clean facility. The parking lot needs to be a little bigger to accommodate the big trucks with trailers that are coming there for the dunes. We had to park in the grassy area away from the hotel. Would recommend.

I enjoyed this hotel with my family. Everyone was very nice & accomodating when we stayed at this hotel. The kids enjoyed the playground & swimming pool. It would of been nice to have cell service but I guess vacations are made for being unconnected. We were looking forward to the bon fires but found out we had to go... More

Thank you for your review! Just as a follow up there is discussion of a new cell tower going up in the area this off season so hopefully next time you stay you won't have to disconnect if you don't want to. Thanks again More

Sierra Sands exceeded our expectations! Only hotel we could find with a breakfast option and the staff was very nice and accommodating. Neat and clean rooms and the location is perfect if you want to enjoy local activities. We will only stay here when visiting the area in the future.

Our family of four just spent four days at the Sierra Sands Family Lodge at Silver Lake. I asked my wife what was the first thing that popped in her head about the lodge and she said "Friendly Service" and I would have to agree. Now on to the review about the accommodations and grounds. We had a deluxe room... More
