Reminds me of the Bates Motel in the Hitchcock thriller Psycho. Run down and smells moldy. We were supposed to stay here 5 nights and decided not to even stay 1. We left and drove 5 miles over the bridge to Miami and for the same money stayed at the Intercontinental Hotel where the rooms were modern, clean and beautiful... More

Yes, it's like motor courts used to be on the beach. Yes, it's in a great location, safe, and quiet. But frankly it's just about worn out. We stayed in one of the three beachside rooms. Linens old, shower small, beds substandard, toilet ran most of the time, sliding door wouldn't lock easily. For $375 per night, just not a... More

Can't beat the location! Key Biscayne on the beach! Omar, front desk person was super friendly when we called from the road looking for a room. We got in late and Omar still welcomed us. He offered us some tips. The place is on the "vintage" side, but comfortable and clean. The property is super pretty-kinda feel like still in... More

I rated this property "very good" as it was clean, quiet and exactly what I expected from the reviews. There aren't many hotel options on Key Biscayne, most people probably rent via VRBO or through a realtor and stay in one of the many condos on the island. This property was built in the 60's I would guess but it... More

This quaint, retro motel stands in its own little tropical haven surrounded by the overpowering condos on the beach. Walking distance to restaurants and other conveniences, this lovely and well-maintained property is right on the beach in Key Biscayne. Your choice on Key Biscayne is either the Ritz-Carlton for $700 plus per night or the Silver Sands for under $200... More

We were staying at a luxury hotel a few blocks down the waterfront but wanted something a bit lower key where we could prepare some meals and escape to a quieter place. That's how we found the Silver Sands Beach resort. It is a one-story complex with several standalone cottages nestled on the ocean front in between high-rise and high-priced... More

The tub leaks from the handles when you turn on the water not to mention the water fills up to your ankles because it doesn't drain. The beds were quite small and the sheets were very uncomfortable. Looked more like a cheap motel for $40/night then $200/night. There are no food services on ground, only vending machines. They have a... More

If you come to Key Biscayne you only have a couple of lodging options. The Ritz Carlton is just down the beach from here and 4x the price. I was there during the day for business and it is everything you'd expect: overpriced, stuffy, dull and full of the worst kind of people. It was so refreshing to return to... More

The room was very dated and I had many "sugar" ants in my kitchen area. Floor was very sandy. No breakfast. Pool attendant was gone for over an hour at noon and then rude upon return when I inquired about a pool towel and why there were so many wild iguana. If you want an outdated motel with very average... More

Have stayed in the rooms and the on property cabins. Yes, it's dated but super clean and efficient. Being able to walk a mere 10 steps to the sand and ocean is a miracle. The pool is small but again, so well kept. The courtyard landscaping is a joy when viewing for the cabin's deck. So private. However....there is now... More
