The Silver Sands is not the Ritz (that is down the street), but it is a great, basic hotel right on the Atlantic Beach in Key Biscayne. It is not fancy at all, but is worth a try. The beds could be a little better, but other than that, it is just fine. It is within walking distance of many... More

My husband and I stayed at Silver Sands Beach Resort the weekend after Labor Day. Thankfully, we missed the crowds! We arrived on Thursday afternoon and just about had the place to ourselves. Check in was easy and the parking was fine.The motel sits right on the beach and is centrally located on Key Biscayne. The motel was probably built... More

Our South Fl rental was cancelled and Interrestingly resold to others for a longer stay and 100$ a night more. Sat night,high season,Mass visitors no place to stay for three nights. Oh dear. Through a series of events we ended up at Silver Sands and It was the best thing to happen the whole trip. The price negotiated with AAA... More

This modest resort is perfectly located for attendance at the SONY Open tennis tournament. It would also be ideal for a family vacation. Nice pool, lovely beach, helpful staff and easy parking. I just hope the owner does not sell out to a high rise developer as the neighbors seem to have done.

Silver Sands is a great location in order to walk to the Sony Open tennis tournament. Clean rooms, heated pool, nothing fancy but meets our needs! The rooms are a little dated but I had a roll away bed and it was very comfortable

another hidden gem...while this "motel" could use upgrades and rennovations...the stay here is about location...location...location...3 of the rooms sit right on the sand 50 ft from ocean...there are approx 6 cottage style rooms and the singles...its by no means the "ritz" however, a must for "hiding out" island style...staff is very sweet...locals all been there for years...low season great rates...high...

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
