I stayed for 3 nights at Silver Sands to celebrate my engagement to my fiancee. I could not have asked for a more serene, low-key and wonderful experience. Rooms are clean and spacious, you get extra space to hang out, separate from the sleeping area. Slept through the night, which I rarely do in the city, soft bed and warm... More

Terry and Family have been friendly, accommodating and wonderful these 9 years we've visited. From a two week stay to one year just a weekend, it's been a delight for us. My now 12 and 10 year olds have grown up on the beach and in the pool. It's a real traditional holiday for us. Beach, pool and BBQing every... More

I have been staying at Silver Sands for over 10 years now. I usually stay with family for a week in the summer, but also have stayed with friends, both on and off season. I make sure to book my summer trip and and trips around holiday weekends very early (months in advance) so I don't lose out - I... More

I booked my summer trip on very short notice so I did not have many lodging options available. I expected the hotel to be retro and a little shabby chic. It was a little more shabby. The rooms were clean and beds were comfortable. The beach location is great as is proximity to downtown Greenport, but this hotel really needs... More

Location, location, location. This place is right on the beach. The owner, Terrie, couldn't be more accommodating. The place is run down but it is also dirt cheap!! It was quiet. The room smelled moldy but we left the windows open and went out to dinner and it was fine by the time we got back. Its a great place... More

A couple friends and I stayed here for the midweek special in June and The Silver Sands retro motel feel completely charmed us. I loved the neon sign out front! The rooms look like they were transported from the 50's (in a good way). The pink tiles in the bathroom needed repair, but otherwise everything was clean and comfortable. And... More

My partner and I and her family have been holidaying here for the last couple of years, we love the design and family friendly atmosphere.

Proclaiming the Silver Sands Motel & Beach Cottages as my preferred lodging in Greenport might be a lofty statement after only one visit. However, that’s all it took for me to fall in love with this rustic gem located in the North Fork of Long Island. Situated less than five minutes outside Greenport, the Motel offers a swimming pool and... More

Stayed there one night during our trip over Long Island. The main building is built in a U shape with the opening to the private beach. We could unfortunately not go there as the weather did not permit it. The rooms are spacious and have a retro charm, dating back to the 50s. It is nice to have a sleeping... More

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
"DIRTY DANCING meets THE FLAMINGO KID" - NEW YORK MAGAZINE, April 2007The Silver Sands Motel and Beach Cottages was established in 1961 on 40 unspoiled acres on Peconic Bay in Greenport, facing Shelter Island. We are a quiet getaway for beach and nature lovers, and their families, and have been for generations. Our rooms and cottages all have microwaves, mini-fridges, television, AC, and some have efficiency units as well as full kitchens. We are set off the beaten-path in Greenport, down a wooded road on the beach and are adjacent to 18 acres of pristine wetlands. Over the last half-century, we have been host to families, couples, studio film shoots, major fashion shoots, and have been featured in the NEW YORK TIMES, NEW YORK MAGAZINE, THE NEW YORKER, TIME-OUT, TRAVEL & LEISURE, and NATIONAL GEOGRAPHIC TRAVEL MAGAZINE. ... more   less
