“Our Home Away From Home”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed June 2, 2008

We have stayed at the Silver Lake Resort Annually for as long as I can remember. The resort had just undergone a management change and they have done an incredible job with the remodeling.

For the past 3 years we'd been snubbed by the fish, but this year proved to be quite plentiful, and have heard it's getting better. If you head out to the middle of the lake on a clear day, you can see Mt. St. Helens and Mt. Rainier off in the distance, an amazing view.

Hidden from the road by the rv park and campground at Silver Lake Resort and Motel, about mile 6 on the Spirit Lake Memorial Hwy, there is a fun motel that juts out over the water. Anyone looking for accomodations for a visit to Mount Saint Helens would be wise to check it out. In Aug. of this year (07) we stayed there in a one bedroom suite. Now if you're looking for "fancy" this will not be your place. The rooms are clean and basic. The kitchen area is small. The beds in our unit came in only one size - double - but there is one in the small bedroom and one in the living room. Each unit has a large balcony, however, that extends over the water. Ducks swam around and under our balcony. Swallows dove about over the water. Fishermen tried their luck and bragged about the one that got away on the dock in front of the motel. From the side, Mount Saint Helens looms on the horizon.There is a small grocery in with the office.There are also cabins, but these are rentable only by the week in the summer. Our party was made up of 3 adults and we had a most enjoyable stay in the motel. It was reminiscent of the fishing camps that my father dragged me to in my youth. It's a nice change from the standard motels that dot the area - and the price was right. I can happily recommend Silver Lake. I do not recommend Rostig's (or some similar name) Steak House (The name Silver Shores was on the menus) about 2 miles further down the hwy. I suspect this might be a lively place to drink, but definitely not to eat. The food, when it came after 2 hours, was cold and there was something that was not vegetable in my salad. We drove back into Castle Rock to a fast food place for sustenance.

So, have a fun stay at the Silver Lake Motel, and either cook your own food or drive into Castle Rock to eat.
