We stayed at this hotel over Christmas break and it was a great 'base' for everything to do in Miami and the Keys. The staff was helpful, it was quiet, the rooms -- though dated -- were clean and comfortable. It really helped having a microwave and refrigertor in the room along with dishes and cups. We would definitely stay... More

My husband and I recently stayed at this quaint hotel/motel on Key Biscayne. It would not be the right fit for all, however, for those that want a down home, adventure traveler experience it is great for the money. The close proximity to the beach is nice, the pool is fantastic. The immediate yard is beautiful and quaint. It was... More

Throw back to the 60's no frills hotel, but great location & comfort. Nice heated pool & beach front location. Easy access to restaurants, CVS & super market. Accommodations dated but my room was spacious & had kitchen.

This hotel is the way to go in Miami if you are looking for a private, Keys-like atmosphere. It is on Key Biscayne which is an extremely tranquil island off the busy Miami scene. We lived in Miami for 12 years and were returning with our 3 young children for a few days. This hotel has a kitchenette and beach... More

My husband and I were driving to key Biscayne without a hotel, and by searching online we found this hotel and the Ritz-Carlton. The rate for this hotel was $129 and the Ritz at $259. We were sure that the Ritz would be a better hotel but it is insane the $130 difference could be so little compared with the... More

First of all, Key Biscayne is the best location so far we have stayed in Miami. A small island, just South of Miami Beach and very close to Downtown, Bayside, South Beach and Coral Gables. On the north and the south of the island are beautiful parks right on the beach. For only 8 dollars per car you can go... More

I've been going to SS since the 1980s. It is a no frills place, but the staff is completely helpful and pleasant. It isn't the Ritz--the only other hotel on Key Biscayne--but you don't pay a resort fee, you don't pay $30 @ day to park, plus tips every time you get your car. You can park outside your door...

My family and I have visited the Silver Sands resort several times over the years. We always enjoy our time there, my sons love following around all the iguanas that live on the grounds, and swimming in their big, clean pool, and playing on the beach and in the clear ocean waters. The units are built in an old fashioned... More

The motel (it is not a resort) certainly is a bit run down. However still very good priced for its location on Key Biscayne. The pool area and the proximity to the beach are very nice. Our room was clean and there was nothing to complain about, considering the price of $ 130. I can recommend this motel.

We stayed at the Silver Sands 3/28-29. Me, wife and boys 15 and 12. We had a garden room with a small patio table and umbrella outside.. We came for the Sony Ericsson Open and the town of Key Biscayne has a free shuttle to the Open. The grounds are very nice and the pool is very large and warm.... More
