This is a vintage hotel that's like taking a step back in time (and in a good way)! The rooms are comfortable and clean. The service by the staff is great! The owner is just a really nice person! Have stayed there 3 times and can't wait to go back! The beach is just an added pleasure! It's always been...

We stayed here for a birthday getaway. Super cute, comfortable, and very clean. It was like stepping back in time. While too cold for swimming, the beach was relaxing. The office staff was very helpful and friendly. I would definitely recommend staying here. We hope to be back soon!

My husband and I (and my father-in-law and his girlfriend) just spent the night at this great motel. It was a true blast from the past! You can see why it has been the set for many fashion shoots. They have managed to preserve the original charm of the motel, while ensuring an updated experience. The check in process was...

The motel looks like it was 1950 again and that is a good thing. It is a little worn but charming. Great location and a very nice beach. Rooms are arranged around a court yard open to the bay so most rooms have a view of the water. Staff is very friendly and helpful

This place is a step back in time! It is in need of renovation, but it is very clean and the staff it very friendly. The best selling point is the private deck and beach on the bay! What a wonderful sight! Even when it's chilly, it's lovely to sit there and relax. We are going back in November!

Yes the bathrooms are run down, and the rooms are a flashback to the 60's but there is something about it that makes me smile. It's on the water with a small beach that is just perfect! It's very close to town and wineries and farm stands! Loved, loved, loved the location. Every morning they left breakfast in the room:...

The owners have not put any money in renovating the place in years. Motel rooms completely run down, bathroom are gross. On the positive, right on the bay and about a mile into town. Been going there for about 5 years now and don't know what it is but I keep going back :)

Thanks for joining us for so long! Our long-time guests are very important to us and the basis of the business. We're going to try to do the post cards again soon. Postage rates have gone through the roof, so it's a little tough. Thanks again.

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
"DIRTY DANCING meets THE FLAMINGO KID" - NEW YORK MAGAZINE, April 2007The Silver Sands Motel and Beach Cottages was established in 1961 on 40 unspoiled acres on Peconic Bay in Greenport, facing Shelter Island. We are a quiet getaway for beach and nature lovers, and their families, and have been for generations. Our rooms and cottages all have microwaves, mini-fridges, television, AC, and some have efficiency units as well as full kitchens. We are set off the beaten-path in Greenport, down a wooded road on the beach and are adjacent to 18 acres of pristine wetlands. Over the last half-century, we have been host to families, couples, studio film shoots, major fashion shoots, and have been featured in the NEW YORK TIMES, NEW YORK MAGAZINE, THE NEW YORKER, TIME-OUT, TRAVEL & LEISURE, and NATIONAL GEOGRAPHIC TRAVEL MAGAZINE. ... more   less
