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

Our family of 5 just spent a 3 day stay at the Sierra Sands. We have college age children and wanted to find a location with options for all of them. We loved the pool and fire pits. We stayed in 115 and had room for 5 by using an air mattress. The man at the front desk was super... More

Like the other reviews stated, the SSFL property was very clean and the room was comfortable. The three of us stayed in unit 206. It was a double room with two queen beds. The room was spacious and exceptionally clean. There was a refrigerator, microwave and dvd player. All of the appliances and AC unit were well maintained and in... More

Very clean, very courteous, very convenient and a great value! These guys know what they're doing! We were a little skeptical with it being a motel-type setting but it was awesome! We'll be staying here again next time we visit. Loved it!

Great family owned facility. Friendly and informative staff. The rooms weren't fancy, but very clean. Nice grounds and pool. Well maintained. Close to town and easily accessible. Additional parking for vehicles with trailers. Small playground for kids to play and fire-pits available.

This lodge was a great location to the sands and the lake. It was a clean family owned business. Very friendly and very accomodating. Rooms were clean and came with a fridge. It also offered a continental breakfast with coffee. The lodge had a pool and hot tub.

We stay for one night in August with 2 adults and 2 kids. Nice hotel, clean and comfortable room, fast check in, playground for kid, pool, ice cream place right next door, tables outside and fire pits, next to the silver lake dunes. I recommend it for a stay.

My husband and I and 3 grandsons (all age 8) stayed for 3 nights in July in a kids suite. It was very clean in the room, the grounds and the pool area. The owners were very accommodating to whatever we needed and we felt very welcome, even with 3 very active boys!! They also had coffee and ice water... More

Hotel was phenomenal! Extremely clean and quaint. Very close to downtown Silver Lake and sand dunes. Front desk was helpful and accommodating. Sean helped with directions on several occasions and helped with the dryer when it wasn't working. They also brought my aunt a coffee pot for the room in case she got up before the continental breakfast was served... More

My son and I had no idea where to stay on our trip to the dunes. I can't even begin to tell everyone how wonderful the Sierra Sands Family Lodge made our trip. It is a perfect location to get away from al the craziness but close enough to walk to it. Everything was immaculate and we felt so comfortable.... More
