Wonderful place for a family vacation. This family owned business takes pride in their facility and takes the time to know their guests and provide an excellent experience for the whole family. I only wish the breakfast spread would have been a little better and more filling. We would stay here again in a heartbeat.

The entire hotel is well kept, neat and clean. The housekeeping staff did an excellent job cleaning every day, and making sure we had clean towels and fresh bed linens. You are in the dunes - there is a lot of sand and it gets everywhere, and they did a great job to get it cleaned up every day. The...

Stayed for 5 nights, only had one of the standard double rooms but it was spacious and very clean. It had a refrigerator, microwave, and flat screen TV. Nicely decorated and continental breakfast was great! Cinnamon rolls, homemade coffee cake, breads, donuts, cheese, toast and coffee. Staff is very friendly and has great suggestions for things to do and places...

I would stay here again. My wife who is very leary of hotel rooms was impressed at how clean and neat the rooms were. Each room has a hand painted light house mural on the wall. The owners bent over backwards to answer questions and help plan our stay. Great location,great rooms, great people.

I read about sierra sands on trip advisor and it sounded like a great place to stay. It really was! The rooms were very clean, beds were comfortable, pool was fabulous. The only complaint I can think of was the toilet paper could be of better quality. We will definitely be back.

My nine year old son and I stayed in a kids' suite at the Sierra Sands Family Lodge, and it was wonderful. Our check in was quick, and the clerk who was working the front desk was friendly and informative. She took the time to pull out a map of the area and show us how to get to areas...
