It was refreshing to find such a pleasant, clean and truly cared for motel. These owners where the best ! Kuddo's. Their efficiency and attention to detail was very much appreciated and it showed in how beautiful the motel and grounds where kept. Everything we asked about was addressed in the most friendly manner from the main desk to the... More

I highly recommend Sierra Sands if traveling with children/ family. This place had a play yard, bonfires,bbq, pool, hot tub and Immaculate comfortable rooms. Sean and Bob were so friendly and accommodating. The continental breakfast could have been a little bit better in regards to feeding children. But overall it was PERFECT! Great location to the dunes, lake and state... More

Best family-owned hotel we have ever stayed in! Perfect combination of modern amenities (wifi, continental breakfast, laundry, pool) and old-fashioned charm (wooded area in back of hotel with beautiful fire pits, swings and play set for kids). We brought our bikes with us to ride around the dunes and had some technical trouble (flat tire, loose seat). Sean from staff... More

I can't say enough about how great Sean was. Even before I made our reservation he was giving me tips on the rental places and things to do in the area. Based on the advice he gave my wife our second day in the area was just everything he had suggested. We all had a great time and I'd definitely... More

This place was awesome for our Family Reunion! The customer service was outstanding! They are friendly, helpful and fun. Our 9 y/o daughter really made a connection with Ms. Pam, one of the employees, and wanted to visit the front desk to see her often! Our room was spacious and clean! The pool and hot tub were perfect for our... More

This is the second time we have stayed at this location. The first time, four years ago, we had a fantastic experience so when we decided to visit the sand dunes again, we looked to this place. Not much has changed in four years, still excellent service. Everyone that works here are so nice. The pool and hot tub are... More
