We are pool hoppers & Love our hot tub time. Sierra Sands pool was warm enough to hop in without the chill, & the Hot tub was large & family friendly. Loved that it was protected by the hotel from the west winds too. Friendly staff that even had pool noodles & balls for the kids to play with. Rooms...

The check-in process was quick and the staff was very friendly. We had a kid suite and our 7 year old loved the bunk beds and the PlayStaion that was in his room. The room was very clean and up to date. They have a large swimming pool that was at the perfect temperature. The location is about 1/2 mile...

We enjoyed staying at Sierra Sands for many reasons. The management and staff are wonderful and very accommodating. The rooms are modern and very clean. The housekeeping staff knows their stuff and they are friendly and cooperative. The pool is nice and big...you have plenty of people in it and don't feel like it's over-crowded. The hot tub is HOT!!!...

We had a ground floor room near the front of the building. It was very clean and remarkably quiet. As we didn't have any children on this trip, we were concerned that the noise while staying at a family resort might be a bit much, but that was not the case at all. This hotel is very well run and...

I am critical on where I chose to stay, certain things need to be there for the money I am spending. The accommodations were fine as well as a pool area that was kept clean and functioning. The only complaint there was that the pool towels were very small. The place is close the the main road so noisy traffic...

My family stayed at the Sierra Sands Lodge in June during out vacation to the Silver Lake Sand Dunes. This is a beautiful location, just minutes from the Silver Lake Dunes and Lake Michigan. We stayed in the "Family Suite" that had bunk beds for the kids. The room was clean and the pool was awesome. The owners of Sierra...

Visited the Sierra Sands to hit the silver lake dunes with the family. Great location, nearby the "downtown" activities. Room was nice and the staff was very helpful. Plenty of parking for those bringing their own dunes equipment. Playground and pool to occupy the kids. I would definitely stay here again and would recommend it.
