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...

Sierra Sands is an excellent place to stay! I can't say enough about the owners and their staff. They are super friendly and extremely attentive to the needs of their guests. Clean, comfortable rooms and amenities make it a great place to stay, whether overnight or a long holiday weekend like we did. Thank you so much for an excellent... More

When we decided, pretty much last minute, to book a family trip to Silver Lake area, this Lodge was the only location that had availability for the dates of our trip. Much to our surprise, I did not feel like we were 'settling'. From the moment we checked in, everything was top notch. Check in process was quick and staff... More

Our family stayed with some friends in the 2 bedroom suite and we were extremely pleased with our room and the lodge in general. Upon arrival and throughout our stay, the staff were friendly and courteous. The pool area was always clean, as was our room and the surrounding areas. Looking at the pictures of the room online, we thought... More

The only comment I made to my family upon arriving is not to complain and keep an open mind. I’m a hotel chain person and not someone that usually travels off the beaten path. With that said, the Sierra Sands definitely went beyond my family expectations. Since we are a clan that spends limited time in our room, our expectations... More

This was a nice location if you are going to the sand dunes or lake. The kids enjoyed the pool and hot tub. The room was very clean. A continental breakfast would have been a nice touch, since it is only served on weekends.

A very pleasant staff, clean rooms, great housekeeping staff, and a nice pool. You can't ask for anything more, the owners go out of their way to welcome you, hosting a very fun SOS (Start of Summer) run, dinner, and entertainment each June. They work wonders to accommodate our family reunion there, we keep coming back.
