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

We showed up and had to go in to ask if they had rooms because their neon sign for no/vacancy wasn't on. When we asked what their rates are they told us for all rooms it's $50/night no matter how many people or beds plus $5 in tax. Friendly service. Room seemed clean but that's about all that was nice.... More

We stayed there on our anniversary in September 2012. The manager and her partner went above and beyond our wildest dreams to make the stay and our time memorable. The kindness poured in greater than any I have received in 4 star hotels. The rooms are not luxury but the people who managed the place treated us like royalty! I... More

I needed a cheap hotel that wasn't too run down. Staff was very friendly and helpful. Room was as expected. Old, out of date but VERY clean. The walls are paper thin! I would stay here again. Great location right off Hwy 101. I felt very safe here.

I only stayed at the Silver Sands because it was the only room in town. My room was on the second floor and it was pretty poor. Each step while in the room resulted in creaking floor boards. Okay, I could deal with that. Trouble was, each step by the folks in both adjoining rooms resulted in the same (loud)... More

Growing up an hour from Florence, I've stayed in nearly every hotel along the coast. This is by far THE WORST!! We checked in, dropped off our stuff, then spent the day at the beach. It was night when we got back, so we just wanted sleep. Pulled back the covers and holy crap! The entire box spring was rotted... More

My wife and I decided to stay on the coast for the weekend. We stayed in Newport one night and then the next night we drove down the coast. I was looking for something decently priced and this was not it! We went out to a nice dinner and then headed back to the motel. We got inside and the... More
