The Sierra Sands is very convenient if you are in town to drive or hike the sand dunes or use Silver Lake. But I was most impressed with the owner/manager. He was very responsive and went out of his way to help us out of a jam. Rooms are clean and nice. We were there in the off season, but the pool looks nice. It looks like it would be fun to hang out by the fire pit near the kids' play-sets out back when there are more people around. I'll be returning in warmer weather.

My family including two little kids had to stay there for two nights because of a disabled vehicle. I didn't expect much, because we didn't plan to stay there. But I was so surprised to know it was a extremely nice place. The owners was super nice to us and they provided lots of extra help. The hotel is very clean and kids can play at the playground. The location is close to lots of important places to visit. Because we didn't have a car to drive, we walked to the general store they recommended to buy food. The cheese bread and pizza are so yummy. Thank you for making our frustrated trip so satisfying.

First time to Mears and sand dunes. Was very impressed with the Sierra Sands was convenient to the dunes and all that Mears has to offer. We were able to check in early and the gentleman checking us in was very nice and helpful. The grounds of the motel were very well kept and parking was not a problem. Our room met all our expectations was very well cleaned which was a concern to us during COVID. The only thing we wish the refrigerator in our room was a little bigger. Overall great place to stay.

My family stayed here for 2 nights and it was very pleasant. This location is close to dining and the the town entertainment area. Water front is within walking distance. Boat rentals and dunes motor rental equipment is nearby as well. Very small town so our 2 nights was perfect. Staff was very friendly and grounds were neat. We would stay again.

Our room was clean and everything worked. My only issue is that if you want coffee, you have to go into the front office area to get it. That is an inconvenience and prefer in room coffee. Otherwise, I would recommend this place. It is very close to many local attractions.
