The people that worked here were nice but the rooms were very small and Very expensive for a motel room. It is right in the heart of the town and in walking distance to most things. The shower head was really low, at about my shoulder and they have well water so it was pretty hard to get used to...

We have ice in the main office because guest fill their coolers and then we got complaints the ice maker was empty. Can't win. We also have blow dryers in the...

As soon as I pulled up it was not what I expected it to be. The place calls themselves a "resort" or a hotel, but once you get to your room the truth comes out. The room looked like a cheap motel you see in cities where people rent by the week or live there. All the papers said it...

This person came in with an old brochure and was very angry about paying more than the starting out price in the old brochure. Management tried to tell her it was an old brochure and show her the new one but she still argued. The staff person asked her if she paid the price she was quoted when she made...

The resort is right next to 3 rather loud go kart tracks although they quit running at 11;00 or so. Just a heads up to be ready for a bit of noise. The room itself was fine. They have a $50 cancellation fee so beware.

This is a "resort" in the same way a lot of trailer parks are called "estates". While the property also has "cottages" (very small houses), we stayed in the "motel" part. It was not what I expected! Yet, it fit with the rest of the town. The areas are small and cramped, even though the pictures on their website make...

I love this place! I have been there three times and going again this summer (July). I have stayed in the beach house (lakeside) (my favorite) and once in the hotel part. This is NOT a place to go if you are looking for quiet! There are kids, lots of kids, there is a pool, tons of people walking around...

I was not impressed. My husband and I stayed in a motel room for a family wedding. The room layout was unique. Here are my complaints: The toilet trickled all night; The trucks were extremely loud in the morning; People were up partying loud all night; The tv remote and phone did not function; The mattress was firm and the...

It was Memorial weekend at Silver Lake. The trucks and sand vehicles are here for the dunes. Did you go to management at all with your complaints? We have staff on hand to stop the toilet from trickeling, replace the remote and fix the phone,but you need to tell us when you are here, not on social media. Not everyone...

The balcony suite was beautiful, we had a view of downtown town, the lights in the evening were beautiful, and when we did go inside our room we closed the door and could not hear the traffic. We ask for extra coffee and recieved it right to our room, we...

My family of 4 just got back today from the Silver Sands Resort. Our boys, 16 and 10, LOVED it. I had previously stayed at the resort (in a cabin) for several of my summer vacations with my sisters over 17 years ago. It was such a great time then, that I wanted my husband and boys to have the...

My "family" and I stay here at least once a year. We have always found Dave, Val and staff to be nothing but helpful. We always stay in room 6 and we enjoy quite a few of the anemities at the motel. Whenever we have a need or an issue it is immediately remedied. Even our special requests have been...

My family of 5 had a really good time here. I was a little worried at first when I looked at the pictures on line but I was pleasantly suprised. Our children (2-13 yrs of age) had a blast and said they would rather be there instead of Niagara Falls. Granted, this is not a luxury "resort" but it is...
