Very nice hotel, fabulous customer service and very clean. Highly recommend this hotel to anyone visiting the Silver Lake area. Delicious coffee was always available in the lobby. The staff was very knowledgeable of the area and events within the area. Thank you so much Sierra Sands for your great hospitality!

We stayed at the Sierra Sands for the weekend of the festival. The hotel rooms are very clean and well maintained. The outdoor pool and hot tub were great. The hotel staff are very helpful and friendly. The continental breakfast provided had a nice assortment of breads and cheese. The homemade cinnamon rolls are a very nice touch. The location...

Booked last minute on their site as recommended by friends (TA and other sites showed no availability). Check in was a breeze. Staff was friendly, helpful and always smiling. Room was as clean as they come. We loved the close proximity to the restaurants/activities (10-15 min walk or rent a bike from the hotel). Lovely little backyard area with games...

If you are planning to visit the dunes, this is an awesome location. You can quickly walk right to the jeep and dune buggy rental places. Just a little further down the street you will be at the shops, go-cart track, and restaurants. Standard 2 queen size bed rooms and a simple continental breakfast. No in-room coffee, but the coffee...

We booked the family suite as it seemed it would best suit our family of 6 with 2 bedrooms, full kitchen and living room. The suit is exactly as in the pictures and all would be great if it wasn't attached to the lobby (which nobody ever mentioned) they literally close a sliding door they are on one side of...
