We just returned from a 5 night stay at the Silver Lake Inn and Motel. Our room was a delightful surprise. We booked a suite and had a full kitchen; large living room area, bedroom and wonderful deck with one of the best harbor views available. We could monitor the incoming Ferries on a daily basis! Our room had recently... More

Stayed here for wife's 50th Birthday. Stayed in SL11 which is the old bar before it was converted into a suite. This room has the best view on the island! Spacious, still has bar top in it, nice King bed and two levels of deck over looking the harbor and the Jolly Roger. The desk staff was friendly and helpful.... More

We stayed in suite 208 for 4 nights 8/31 to 9/4. The rooms were clean and spacious. AC was nice and cold but turned it off at times and opened both sliding doors to enjoy the breeze and the temp. Both the king and queen beds were firm and comfortable. The kitchen was fine for our needs, a little sparse... More

Thank you for your review here, we appreciate it. You are right, this is not a Hilton, and we do have our quirks and our charms...just like the island itself. And yes, our sunsets are truly amazing. I hope you will be able to come back soon. Thanks again. More

We visited for a week beginning August 10th. We were pleased that The Silver Lake (TSL) was able to accommodate our request for a Sunday to Sunday stay. We stayed in suite 101 because we were looking for room for four that was also pet friendly. While the room did appear a bit dated, we were very pleased with the... More

We were disappointed with this hotel. After booking two rooms one was very moldy smelling and our second room had mold in the bathroom. This caused my son to have trouble breathing and we had to move hotels. We don't recommend this hotel and not stay there again.

We stayed at the Silver Lake July 19-22 in one of the newly renovated condo rooms. The room was beautiful, the view amazing, and the location of the Sliver Lake in my opinion is the best on the Island. You are within walking distance to everything, however we rented a golf cart and had a blast exploring the back roads... More
