This is my favorite Fla hotel; a 1960's vintage single story right on the beach in Key Biscayne. It is surrounded by luxury high rise hotels and condos but is quiet and almost private. The pool is perfect and the rooms are clean and comfortable. The Sonesta next door has some very good restauarnts (especially the Two Dragons oriental) and... More

Tried to book a room but hotel operator was very rude and kept disconnecting me en route to front desk. I asked to speak to manager but she said only one person worked in hotel! Forget them!

I have been staying at Silver Sands for the past 30 years on the majority of the summer holiday weekends. I went there as a child and continue to go now with my four boys. Its a family oriented one story motel with no elevators to take. You just open your door and you are steps from the pool or... More

This seems to be the last of the old-fashioned one-story motels on Key Biscayne beach... everything else is expensive condos and fancy resorts. It's built in a U-shape around a pleasant pool and garden -- be sure to ask for a room facing the courtyard; otherwise your view will be the parking lot. Rooms are nice size but furnishings are...

Stayed in one of the oceanfront suites...the ocean was steps away from my patio! I had people from the other "luxury hotels" asking me the name of mine as they walked by my patio on the beach! I was leary as I drove to check in to the hotel, it looks like a run down motel, but the 3 suites... More

This is the best value on the island! The rooms are not lush -- only basic rooms with nice kitchenette area, bathroom, and clean tile floors. Good free parking and directly on the beach. It is very convenient to eat next door at the Sonesta, where I could not afford to stay.

Just got back from the Silver Sands. Stayed 4 nites/5 days at $109/day. Best value on Key Biscayne. Beautiful pool, large, clean, adaquate rooms complete with small cable TV, microwave, frig, etc. Excellent water pressure in the shower. Palm trees, lizards galore, and two peacocks! Peaceful location that doesn't have an army of "Cabana Boys" looking to reach in to... More
