We really liked the Silver Sands Motel. The location was absolutely perfect. It was close enough to everything (weirs beach, restaurants, Meadowbrook, shopping, etc), but at the same time feels secluded and private. The beach is fantastic. Its big enough, clean, nice sand, has plenty of beach chairs and tables, and the view is amazing. We spent all day at...

I don't quite know what I was expecting. This particular marina had been suggested to me by a family friend who stays during the motor cycle stuff in Laconia in June... So I decided to give it a shot. First off, the room looked as if it hadn't been updated in at least 40 years. I was clean but don't...

Love this little place! Great atmosphere, quiet, family friendly. The view is amazing, and the beach is real nice and clean. The staff was very accommodating and pleasant. Will definitely be going back summer 2016!

Friendly Staff, outstanding facility. Cabins are large and family friendly. Accommodations made if you have a boat and desire to keep it on the trailer. Slips available on request with power and water. Recommend you make reservations early in your planning process as rooms fill up fast.

Stayed at the Silver Sands motel for a night with the family. Many things to love about this place! Very retro, like stepping back into the 1950's! Room was spotless - I think it's retro because they've taken very good care of the property and haven't had to remodel! Loved that even the cheapest rooms had kitchenettes - what a...

The Silver Sands Motel and Marina is an excellent place to enjoy Lake Winnepesaukee. The pool, beach and Marina are excellent. Meadowbrook is an entertainment facility across the street with top rate talent like Willy Nelson and others coming to play. I keep two boats there.

Quaint, retro 50's styles. Love the 50's style umbrellas on the beach and at the pool. We stayed in a motel room for 4 nights. Everything is very clean and very peaceful (except for concerts at Meadowbrook). Our room had a refrigerator and a 2 burner stove, just right for making little breakfasts and lunches, then we ate out at...

I've been coming here for one week each summer for for close to 20 years, my wife since childhood. It's a great spot with the lake right in the backyard and a pool in the front yard. Very relaxing and low stress. Not too many frills. Nothing fancy. Just comfortable enough, really for a casual vacation. Free wifi, that works....

We stayed here because our friend keeps his boat at the adjacent marina. Not too much good to say about this place. It's very busy and sold out in the summer because of it's great location on the lake. Don't bother asking anyone for anything or complaining about anything they could care less. The cottages and rooms are old with...
