There's shabby chic, and then there's rundown. I stayed in unit 2 and there was rust on some of the metal surfaces and lots of scrapes and unattractive wear and tear on the wooden doors and walls. It's a great location with a pretty nice beach, but just not kept up.

My husband and I have been to Silver Sands three times now and will continue to stay there when we go to explore the LI wineries. The proximity to Greenport Village is great and the waterfront location of the motel is beautiful. The owners are very nice and they now remember us when we come to stay. It is just... More

The owners were welcoming and informative. In spite of a light snow, the location was beautiful. The beach is lovely in the summer, looking across at Shelter Island.It is close to Greenport and excellent restaurants. It is 10 miles from the Orient Point ferry to New London, Connecticut. It is also close to many wineries on the North Fork The... More

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

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

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.
