Our family has been staying here for three years now. Usually in June and in September for the Apple BBQ festival. It's a great location walking distance to attractions and shopping. Sometimes it's a bit noisy from the traffic to the dunes but it quiets down after sunset. Also the best views of the lake and sunsets can be seen...

Need to take the word resort out of the name. Way overpriced for very small rooms. Poor water pressure and resembles a motel more than anything. Staff was rude, especially to any of your friends or relatives that may visit you. Pool was not opened on time.

We have stayed at this hotel 4 or 5 times over the last 10 years or so. Our room is always clean and spacious. Our most recent visit was another great stay. We really appreciated the new flooring. The carpet has been removed and replaced with a hard floor.

The people who run this place are awesome. After my girlfriend and I drove for 6 hours we hit a bad storm and we knew we were going to end up arriving after the office closed. So we called them to let them know and they were happy to wait for us. We stayed in the couples building, and didn't...

We stayed August 5 & 6th 2016. Last year we stayed at the hotel across the street, but Silver Sands offers a lot more for your money. The room was super clean and had everything you needed. The pool was great - very well maintained and clean. The owners of this Resort went above and beyond in helping out their...

Growing up, my family used to stay here when we visited on our summer vacations and we have continued to do so as my siblings and I have raised our own families. It is conveniently in the middle of everything that the town has to offer and a very short walk to the lake. We prefer to get rooms on...

Older resort and small rooms. Nice and clean and the sulfur smell people talk about is common in lower Michigan area. Good water pressure in shower, For once did not have to ask for more towels. Has no closet. We stayed in the 40 section of the resort. Seem to be all adults in that bldg. Location is good. We...

Nasty, Nasty, Nasty!!! The rooms in reality were not as pictured on their website! Very outdated and smelly. Mattresses and bedspreads were gross. Would not allow myself to sleep in this room. Not my idea of a "Resort"! Owner should really think about updating all of the rooms with new/clean furniture and linens. Really disappointed that we had to leave...

We stayed here after a night of staying at the Dunes Waterfront nearby and wanted something a bit less expensive. We asked for the cheapest room. It faced the LOUD go carts, but it didn't bother us. We were either gone or in the room so we didn't hear them unless we were outside sitting on the chairs. The water...
