We took our 2 grandsons for a 4 night vacation in the Silver Lake area. They loved the hotel pool and hot tub! The kid's room was perfect as the boys had their own TV and bunk beds. The staff was so friendly and made several suggestions of things to do. They steered us right every time and made our...

This had to be the cleanest and friendliest motel we have stayed in. This hotel was not originally the one that I was looking at for our trip. Infact, since on the map it looked the furthest from the lake and other recreation areas I was worried it would not be convienant. Boy was I wrong this was the best...

Myself, my husband, and our 4 year old triplets stayed at the Sierra Sands Family Lodge for 2 nights. The resort is CLEAN CLEAN CLEAN. Not a thing is out of place. The hotel staff is friendly and accomodating. We will return if we are looking for accomodations in the Silver Lake Sand Dunes area again.

Our family stayed at this hotel 2 years ago, so when we stopped in Silver Lake this last week we didn't shop around, we went straight to the Sierra Sands. The rooms are nice, clean, and big. The kids love the pool, and the wife and I like the hot-tub. The only downer was that they don't have the free...

We have stayed here twice and have our third trip booked in July. The staff is great and friendly; when we made our second reservation were were treated as regulars and all of our information was on file. We typically arrive late and the room is open, key on the table, and ready to go. The rooms are very clean....

Sierra Sands is a great place to stay if you are visiting Silver Lake. The accommodations were clean and comfortable. They located very close to the lake and vendors. The lodge's staff was very helpful and friendly. The offered suggestions for restaurants and activities. We would recommend this lodge and would stay there again.
