Once the kids go back to school and the season is winding down, the Dunes Waterfront Resort is a great place to get away and relax. They were offering a special I couldn't pass up... buy one night get the second night for half price. What a deal! I recommend getting a room that faces the lake... such a beautiful... More

This is a great family place to stay. Clean, friendly and right on Silver Lake with restaurants, gift shops and other conveniences within walking distance. Our two bedroom suite was accommodating and had a great layout with the master suite in the back with it's own big closet. The entrance to the suite lead to a hallway, not a bedroom,... More

I went on a couple's outing for about 4 days up to Mears, Michigan for their Sand Dunes. We went back and forth comparing the Comfort Inn, the American Host Inn (both in Hart, Michigan) and the Dunes Waterfront Resort. We ultimately choose the Resort and it was so worth it to be that close to the lake and the... More

We stayed at the Dunes Waterfront Resort overnight. We enjoyed our stay. The room was clean and comfortable, and everyone we encountered was friendly. My son (age 10) especially loved the pool. It's located on the 4th floor, and it is perfect for kids. The deepest part of the pool is 3'10", and the shallow end was about 1'. My... More

Our family comes to Silver Lake, MI annually to take our Jeep out on the dunes. For the past three summers we have stayed at the Dunes waterfront resort and have always been very pleased. The hotel is clean and everyone is very friendly. They have plentiful parking reserved for trailers which is no additional cost. Two thumbs up.

Dunes is a super clean resort. I travel for a living and stay in Marriott and Hilton Hotels and This little hotel was cleaner than many of them. Carpet, walls, linens, windows---all clean and in great repair. From the inside our room looked like new construction. The owners were on site and very helpful and kind. We really wanted a... More

This is such a great place to stay. Clearly everyone else knows that too as we were not able to book more nights. This is the cleanest place I have ever stayed. It is beautiful and friendly and quiet. Only downsides, no beach volleyball, restaurant with cocktails and carryout is only open until 10pm. Will definitely go back though. Loved... More

Well, the website and photos look nice, so keep those happy thoughts with you when you get to the "resort". The parking lot was packed, and we didn't want to pay extra for the lake view, so we had a bottom room floor, the window being about a few steps away from the parking lot. So we get to the... More
