My boyfriend surprised me with a Valentine's weekend get-a-way to the Silver Sands Motel. This retro motel is very close to the heart of Greenport and nestled right on the water. IT takes you back in time to when things were simple and easy. It was so relaxing to look out at Pipes Cove and watch the snow fall. The... More

Always a warm welcome, always very attentive service. The waterfront retro-style motel offers a quiet getaway in beautiful surroundings. The beds are really cozy and hot water supply in the showers plentiful - features I really came to appreciate as my visit happened during the cold days of February. If the weather keeps you from going outdoors, the free wifi... More

I liked how the woman who took my reservation asked when I'd be arriving in the area and offered to let me check in early. I liked the gracious man who greeted us with chocolate chip cookies. I liked that he handed me a bottle of wine and gave us menus for area restaurants. I liked that I didn't have... More

Imagine a quiet, family and couples-friendly retreat on the North Fork of Long Island. Imagine the most beautiful waterfront setting you will ever find in the Eastern United States. Imagine feeling at home with the nicest hosts you will ever meet. Then stop imagining and book a stay at the Silver Sands in Greenport! My wife and I have been... More

Hubby decided to take me away for a surprise getaway. He actually knows he needs to check reviews first. Oh well, that didn't work in this case. Is it dirty? no Retro? yes Would I recommend it? No Would I go again? No The long wooded road down to the Motel was fitting since it was Halloween. We made the... More

We recently spent a weekend there. The other reviewers are right. The place resembles Santorini Guest House in Cutchogue, which I once reviewed and where we used to stay, but which is now out of business. Physically, it's not fancy -- just a simple, old-fashioned single-storey motel where you park out in front and walk to your door on an... More

Whenever I'm in these parts of the world, I always stay at the Silver Sands. Great location right on the beach and a mile from Greenport. Staff are friendly and most helpful. The retro feel ads to the charm of the place. Comfortable and clean.

I have some exams coming up and there was no way to focus during the last weeks of crunch-time, so I figured I'd return to Silver Sands, since I remember it being quiet and pleasant. It really is the ideal place for some solitude, I wish I'd been coming here every one of the past month's weekends; this is exactly... More

We stayed here for 2 nights, would have loved to have stayed longer. Retro and a little shabby, it is very clean, very comfortable, laid back, quiet and relaxing. Staff was very helpful and accommodating. We stayed in cottage 23 with a nice view of the water. If lux and polish is your thing, look for somewhere else to stay,... More
