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

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
