“Wonderful Family Owned Property”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 22, 2012 via mobile

Love , love , love this place. A great family owned and operated motel. This was our third visit and we are never disappointed.
First off it is run by a great family and you can tell they care and aren't just "owners". They all are hard at work everyday and it shows. The place is immaculate. From the grounds to the pool and the rooms.
Just can't say enough!!
The pool is always crystal clean. The rooms are nicely appointed and always clean. They have a great continental breakfast which includes awesome cinnamon rolls, great breads and fresh coffee is available day and night
There is a nice sandy play area for the kids with playground equipment, a bonfire pit, picnic tables and grilles.
If you are planning a vacation at Silver Lake look no further. This is a great place to stay. You will not be disappointed!!

We stayed at the Sierra Sands and were very impressed. The resort was very clean, the staff was extremely friendly and accomodating. We will definitely stay again when we come to play on the dunes!

We stayed for two nights as part of a family reunion. Very clean, basic accommodations. Friendly and helpful staff. Good location, walking distance to nighttime arcade. Quick drive to state parks.

We had a fabulous time during our stay at the Sierra Sands Lodge! The grounds are very pretty - loved the little patio and the pool. Our room was very clean and up to date. Although the lodge was full, you would never know because it was so peaceful and quiet! The continental breakfast was a nice way to start the day! Sean is a great host and very helpful as well as all of the staff! We asked for suggestions for dinner and they suggested a couple of restaurants in nearby Pentwater, which we found was another hidden gem! We went on the one hour jeep tour at Parrots Landing next door to the lodge, which was a blast, and also rented a jet ski down by the lake. Also went to the State Park on Lake Michigan which was beautiful. We would definitely go back again to Sierra Sands and the Mears/Pentwater area!

We made some last minute reservations to stay just one night and was pleasantly surprised how nice of facility they have. Mears and the area is a little behind in the growth and expansion of massive retail and loding, making it an ideal get-a-way. The hosts were freindly and make us feel welcome and made sure we were aware of the faclities available. I was not expecting the detail in the rooms and was expecting a more "Motel 6" look. Our room was fresh and modern looking with amenites (refrigerator, LCD 37" TV, modern decor). It was lacking a coffee maker, however there is a nice "light contential" breakfast including rolls, doughnuts, toast, coffee. The pool, hot tub, laundry, and lobby were all neat and in great condition. I was happy to see that there is some "family pride" left in the lodging industry. I will stay again on our next trip to Silver Lake.

Room Tip: Second floor is a bit of a hike with only one stairwell that I could find. If you have a lot of gea...

There are not enough kinds words to explain how nice this place was. The staff was great. The rooms were super clean. Great location. Great parking. Nice pool and hot tub. Great coffee in the lobby and a really nice breakfast bar. Large DVD selection if you're there long enough. Super strong WiFi signal. Really nice Samsung TV in the room. Great playground for the kids. Nice fire pit for evening get togethers.

Room Tip: Take the second floor, first floor rooms a bit noisy at night if the people above you get home late.

I really can't say enough about Sierra Sands. My family stayed in one of their suites - 2 separate bedrooms, a living room, kitchen and dining area. We had a wonderful time. The room was very clean and tastefully decorated when we arrived. We had great access to the pool and all the fun of Silver Lake. The staff (especially Pam) was very helpful and friendly. As far as sleep quality, I can't tell you the last time I've slept so well away from home. Our trip was wonderful and our stay at Sierra Sands was too.
