This, I think, is our fourth visit to Silver Sands & it does not disappoint- peaceful, quaint, and right on the water! This is exactly the place I need to relax and enjoy the summertime; be aware, however , that if you prefer "shiny, fancier" (& much more expensive) surroundings that populate the Hamptons and the North Fork these days,...

My family just returned from our week vacation at silver sands and my kids are already asking to go back. We have been going to Silver Sands for 5 years. There is not one bad thing to say about the Silver Sands. It is a perfect family vacation and the perfect way to spend quality time with the ones you... More

Yes back for our 10th year with the children and my Dad from England. You don't come here for 5star accommodation, it's adequate enough, but the beautiful Peconic Bay, swimming pool, space, beach, nature and tranquility. Two weeks is not enough.

I am a photographer from NYC that does a lot of shooting on eastern Long Island and I have stayed at the Silver Sands in Greenport many times. The location is great and provides access to a wide variety of locations including the area vineyards, beaches, parks and the town of Greenport. This is a family run motel and the... More

I have to agree with the reviewer from May 2015, who stated that the motel was simply too run down to be acceptable. The owners are very sweet and helpful and , make no mistake, the setting is lovely, but the overall condition of the rooms with rust stains, clogged drains, sofas with stuffing escaping, was just not acceptable to...

Great location--quiet and peaceful on the bay, across from Shelter Island. Gave us a bottle of complimentary North Fork wine on check in! Rooms are a bit dated, but not there to hang out inside. The deck/beach was quite restorative. Easy walk to center of Greenport town.

i have been enjoying the wonderful hospitality at the family owned and run Silver Sands several times a year for over 12 years. Although, I live 10 minutes from the ocean, nothing beats waking up and drinking my coffee on the serene beach at Silver Sands. The accommodations are rustic yet spotless. I am always greeted with a warm welcome... More

Silver Sands Motel is a one of a kind and something everyone should experience. Its an idyllic location with simple amenities and that give you the freedom to just be who you are. Its like taking a trip back to Long Island in its glory days of the 1950s. The shaggy rugs and turquoise floor tiles are amazing, not to... More

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
