We have stayed at Silver Sands twice, once off-season, once in August. Both experiences were great. We were able to get set up with a room last minute. I love how they have a sauna in addition to the hot tub and pool. The ocean view was great. It was within walking distance of everything in Rockaway. I was particularly... More

There really needs to be a standard for reviewing rooms! I cannot see this place getting anything higher than 3 stars (and 3 stars is just becasue it has an ocean view). This is a very basic, no frills, motel. The beds were comfortable enough, it had an ocean view, and it was within walking distance of shops/food. The room... More

We have stayed at the Silver sands now for 3 years. Our dog is welcomed each time. No the rooms are not fancy, it has not got the latest technology but the rooms are clean, staff is friendly and our little family of 3 people and 1 doggie are happy here. We always book the ground floor with a kitchenette... More

We needed a place to stay and quickly as i was coming down with a migrane. Pulled in booked a room quickly. Ocean front cannot be beat. Rooms are VERY basic and need some updating....but I will say it was very CLEAN. Staff friendly. Price right.

Great location....steps from the Beach. Older motel...kinda tired looking but clean and adequate. We took a room with only one bed and no kitchen facilities...had a nice mini patio. Watching the sun set thru the clouds and listening to the crashing waves. Good value. Internet has poor coverage.

A peaceful and restful location beside the Ocean, the Silver Sands Oceanfront Motel is perfectly situated for those who treasure a beachfront adventure. The Silver Sands is found in the heart of Rockaway Beach, Oregon, and only a few steps from a Pacific Ocean beach that seems to stretch on forever and back again! The motel is within an easy... More

This was a complete disappointment. The rooms are aging badly, with saggy and uncomfortable old mattresses. The tub didn't have a plug so we couldn't bathe our kids. At least the bathtub/toilet/sink area and frig in the kitchenette were clean, although the kitchenette was not well stocked. They only provided three towels when they knew there were four guests. It... More

The views are great, right on the ocean. Rooms are quiet considering how close it is to the ocean. Outdated facility with old bathrooms. I didn't find the morning game of 'how not to get burnt in the shower' very appealing.

We came upon this hotel on a dark and rainy night in the dark. Lights were on, so we stopped. What a welcoming owner. He had availability and offered us to see the room before we committed. It was tastefully decorated and very clean and an updated bathroom. Nice! Because we were late getting in, we didn't really look around... More

Nice to wake up in the morning with the Pacific Ocean right outside your window and door. The beach is 50 ft. away. Awesome view! In a nice little beach community that is mighty sleepy this time of the year. Very little tourist traffic at the end of October. Nice room with refrigerator/freezer and microwave oven. Even has Real Cups... More
