“Quiet yet close to the action....”
Reviewed July 22, 2010

Very nice, basic hotel, nestled in quiet area literally minutes from the Silver Lake busy downtown area. We loved the fact that we could hop in the car and be at the Dunes in 5 minutes! You could even walk to town if you'd like. Very clean facilities, staff very friendly.
If you like to get away from the touristy section of town, we'd highly recommend Sierra Sands.

This was a great place to stay. We had the kid suite which was great for us. That meant our 2 young children could go to bed at a decent hour and we could still be up watching t.v. without disturbing them. Rooms were clean, pool and hot tub were great, warm and very clean. (My only concern was that there was no shower curtain liner so the floor in the bathroom always seemed wet, or maybe it was the sweating toilet...it was very high humidity during our stay) People working there were all very helpful and provided great tip of things to do and best place to hit the beach. Everyone actually seemed to enjoy their job. That sure is rare these days so the employees must be being treated right. Keep up the good work! We will definately reccomend this to friends and family

My wife and I stayed at the hotel for the 4th and were extremely impressed. I felt like we were staying in someone's home rather than at a hotel. The owners Bob & Marilyn were gracious and the hotel and grounds were spotless! My wife is extremely afraid of hotels, but this hotel made her feel at ease and she loved it.

Great, friendly staff. Clean room. We got a great deal for arriving on a weekday. Close to all activities. Good coffee - which is very important to me once I get up. We'll definitely be back.

We found this place online and it met all our expectations plus some! All of the staff are so nice and willing to help. The price is reasonable and the beds were a lot more comfortable than at some chain hotels I've stayed at. The pool and hot tub were always kept very clean and the kids loved it! It's VERY close to the Sand Dunes and Lake Michigan, only a couple miles away. You've GOT to ask for Dune Ride tickets if you stay here, it was AWESOME. We will be going back next year for sure!

I didn't stay here, but stopped in to ask for a local coffee shop. The gentleman in the lobby was very friendly and offered coffee and wifi right there, free of charge. He thanked me for stopping in and asking. I took him up on it. If this is the way I'm greeted, I would most certainly choose this place to stay.
