Don't know why these types of motels can't be honest. Needed a room, all others sold out or too high a price. Inquired here said they had 2 rooms left. After checking in, went out for a late dinner, at the pizza place across the street. Saw at least 12 cars pull in and check in. Called from restaurant to... More

No window screens. No glasses. No stopper in bathroom sink. Towels paper thin. Smoking permitted outside of Non Smoking Rooms. Has a manager who can only say, "I am sorry." So was I. The manager should take measures to insure that the room is ready for the occupant. The manager should advise any prospective tenet about no window screens.

I have stayed at this hotel just because everywhere else was full. Even though it's advertised at free wifi. It doesn't work in the back rooms (farthest from the office) . The people here are very sketchy and when I asked them the price the lady there said 70 and when I went to pay the next day she said... More

Rooms were clean and spacious. Staff friendly and accommodating. My family of four (including two teenagers) was comfortable there for two nights visiting the coast. Beds were not super comfortable to me, but we all slept good. It was quiet there too. No breakfast, but McDonalds is very close. We would stay again.

I used to live in Florence, so am familiar with motels & summer rates in this area. Silver Sands has been in business for many years, so it is anything but new. It is, however, very reasonable for a budget motel in Florence. They also take dogs in select rooms. Penny is the new resident manager, and she is doing... More

We stopped at the Silver Sands because of it being pet friendly. Pros: - low cost - clean linens, no bugs, microwave, fridge - fairly close to local attractions - front desk personnel friendly/helpful Cons: - old (and musty); musty is a common problem with beach properties - hole in carpet but we were advised of this upon registering -...

I traveled the coast with my family and it doesn't get any cheaper for 2 queen beds on the 101. The management is friendly, the room is a decent size and clean. If your budget is tight, the price is definitely right. Don't expect 5 star quality, but it's worth $55 bucks ;)

How does one describe the most horrible motel experience of your life? I've stayed in many, many motels all across the country and last Saturday night was the worse motel stay I've ever endured. To start with, the bed had no bottom sheet - you slept on the mattress pad (which popped off as soon as we laid down because... More
