When we decided, pretty much last minute, to book a family trip to Silver Lake area, this Lodge was the only location that had availability for the dates of our trip. Much to our surprise, I did not feel like we were 'settling'. From the moment we checked in, everything was top notch. Check in process was quick and staff was friendly. Owner very friendly and helpful. Pool was very clean. Grounds are very well kept up. We made it out to the fire pit one of the nights and it was very relaxing. Rooms were very clean upon arrival and kept that way by efficient housekeeping . The continental breakfast was sufficient, though I personally would have loved some fresh fruit available. One last comment...we were up in Silver Lake area over July 4th, busiest time for the area no doubt. We were expecting the motel area to be noisy/crazy, especially at night, but that honestly wasn't the case at all! I would recommend this to others and would plan to return in the future.

Our family stayed with some friends in the 2 bedroom suite and we were extremely pleased with our room and the lodge in general. Upon arrival and throughout our stay, the staff were friendly and courteous. The pool area was always clean, as was our room and the surrounding areas. Looking at the pictures of the room online, we thought maybe it would be a little outdated, but it definitely was not! The lodge is within walking distance or within a 5 minute drive of most activities, and there was plenty to do during our 2 night stay. (A trip to Michigan's Adventure is less than a 1/2 hour drive). You never know what to expect from a "family owned" business, but rest assured, this is a great place to stay! Housekeeping also did an excellent job, and folded one of our blankets in the shape of a heart, which was a nice little touch! We would definitely recommend the Sierra Sands Family Lodge to our friends and family, and will definitely stay there again in the future!

Room Tip: 2 bedroom suite was next to and above the pool, but was not loud at all. Also, having use of a grill was a definite bonus.

The only comment I made to my family upon arriving is not to complain and keep an open mind. I’m a hotel chain person and not someone that usually travels off the beaten path. With that said, the Sierra Sands definitely went beyond my family expectations. Since we are a clan that spends limited time in our room, our expectations are simple: clean, close, and quiet. The Sierra Sands easily met all three. We’ve never tipped the folks cleaning our room, but my wife felt obligated since the room was immaculate given all of the sand we left between visits. The hotel was close enough to walk throughout the Silver Lake region. Even if a drive was needed, we are talking 5 minutes to get to everything (not that everything meant much, but still…). And finally the quiet part, you would expect a location labeled the red neck haven of Michigan to be loud, but this hotel did not suffer that dilemma. The patrons were well behaved and well kept making our visit enjoyable and definitely repeatable.

This was a nice location if you are going to the sand dunes or lake. The kids enjoyed the pool and hot tub. The room was very clean. A continental breakfast would have been a nice touch, since it is only served on weekends.

A very pleasant staff, clean rooms, great housekeeping staff, and a nice pool. You can't ask for anything more, the owners go out of their way to welcome you, hosting a very fun SOS (Start of Summer) run, dinner, and entertainment each June. They work wonders to accommodate our family reunion there, we keep coming back.
