This is our second stay at Silver Sands. The service is great. They owners are friendly, accommodating and pleasant. They provide breakfast each day (muffins, cereal, milk, coffee and tea), which is a great plus. The location is convenient to most activities out there and the view is outstanding. But, do not book here if you are expecting top rate... More

It was 18 months since our first, by chance, visit to Silver Sands; turning left off the main road, through the woods and over the railtracks simply hightens the anticipation. Just crossing two parallel lines and you're in a totally different zone, an another State of Mind. The welcome is quietly and artlessly sincere. Jean remembered us from our first... More

Old style motel that will remind you of all the places you stayed at as a child with your parents. Reasonable. I can't stand that families can't afford vacations anymore because the motel rates have gotten to be so high. The pleasure of this place is how removed it is from the main road. The sense of peace garnered from... More

I don't think there is much middle ground here. You're either going to accept the way it looks or not. It is not something you will get used to. Aesthetically, it is the same as the day it was built, albeit older and in a more worn condition. We stayed in the motel and found it to be o.k. The... More

We just returned from Greenport this weekend. We stayed at the Silver Sands Motel. Upon arrival we were given a cottage for the first time, we usually stay in the motel. The cottage was great. The beach is on the Peconic Bay and the view on the beach is tremendous. You can see Shelter Island, Greenport and Southold. It is... More

The private beach is amazing, which I had a view of from my room . The motel is very retro and I loved it. It is not the average prepackaged room but offers a slice back in time when the world was more genuine and less decided by large corporations. The Silver Sands is family owned. My only regret is...

Easy, friendly & comfortable. Our 3rd year. .Basic family friendly & happy people. We aren't high maintenance & don't need much. Our 3rd year. Fun times & easy living. The cottages are the best for space. The convenience of the weber grills everywhere & the calm beach area with plenty of lounge chairs for all was great. Nice. Simple. Friendly.

My wife and I just got back from another amazing weekend getaway at The Silver Sands. We have been coming here for years now and every time is better than the last. Even though we only live about 45 minutes away, staying here is truly a unique experience. It's unlike staying anywhere else on Long Island. I will say upfront... More

We've been coming to this spot for many years and have stayed in everything from their motel rooms to the cottages to their largest house. Rustic and far from fancy, every place is comfortable and relaxed for young families, couples, seniors and everything in between. A huge waterfront location that looks more like a mountain lake than a salt water... More

We only had three nights to get away and there was never a thought to go elsewhere than Silver Sands . We absolutely love it . The Staff could not be more friendly or accomodating. We had a motel room, very close to the private beach. The rooms are clean and the beds are comfortable. Continental breakfasts are also included.... More
