Beautiful hotel, great location, but too much money for a room facing the parking lot. Otherwise noted, they would not give a discount to a disabled veteran and on 4th of July weekend no less! The wi-fi was very week, making internet access unstable. Disappointed that the pool area was locked at night. There is a beautiful view from there... More

We stayed 2 nights at the Dunes Waterfront Resort. It was clean and the staff was very friendly and helpful. My only warning is do not get a whirlpool room unless you stay up late. We did not use our tub but the people next door did and it sounds like a jet engine in the room and at midnight... More

We have stayed here on previous visits but it has been about 10 years since we were here so we didn't know what we would find. Happy to say that this property is still as beautiful as it was 10 years ago. The staff at the Dunes keeps it very very clean & they should be proud of their staff.... More

This was our first visit to the area and we chose to stay here because of the reviews on Trip Advisor. A warning to those who haven't been to this area before - there are no bars here. None. Bring your own. Being from Milwaukee, this was a complete shock to the system, but we figured it out...now back to... More

It's our first time here and this place is very nice. The room is very clean and the view is beautiful. Staff is friendly as well. The only complaint I have with this town is that there isn't any place to have a cocktail within walking distance lol, Otherwise a great place.

Very impressed with how clean it was. Rooms, stairwells, grounds all immaculate. Great view from our balcony. Very pleasant stay! Silver Lake is very quiet but you are in the heart of it all at The Dunes Resort. Only hotel right on the lake. Chairs, swings and barbecue are located lakeside.

We stay at the Dunes Waterfront Resort every time we come to the National Asparagus Festival. Beautiful hotel. We love the lake side rooms. Amazing view. Always clean. Staff extremely helpful. We wouldn't stay anywhere else. The festival was wonderful. Thank you all, and hope to see you next year.

We stayed at the Dunes Waterfront Resort for 3 nights. We loved the location, walking distance to shops, go-karts, restaurants, etc. The hotel was clean and met our expectations! We stayed on the lake side and the view was very nice. We will definitely be back!

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

My husband and I took our son for a 4 day weekend to Mears Michigan, we stayed at the Dunes Waterfront Resort right on the beach. This was such a clean and updated hotel and the staff was so friendly. I would defitnetly recommend this to everyone, while you are there, you have to go ride a dune buggy on... More
