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 were pleasantly surprised with this hotel. Very clean, spacious room with microwave and mini fridge. Best of all, the staff were friendly and welcoming. Very glad we chose this hotel and will be sure to book here next time we come out to the dunes!

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.

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

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

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.
