“Economic Bliss”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 7, 2013

For the price of $85/night my girlfriend and I stayed two nights for the 4th of July and was very pleased with this little jewel. Very clean and the management was very friendly. We stayed in room 3 in the hallway corner and it was quiet and peaceful. It is dated but thats what gives it such charm so dont try to compare this to Hilton or Marriot. If you want that kind of updated stuff and have the money to spend on it then look for that. This was my choice mainly because of price and some great reviews and we couldn`t have been happier. STAY AWAY FROM GULF BEACH INN This was a horrible experience and I will be leaving a review of that place too but there is a chance it will be censored because im very unhappy with it and will be leaving a negative review. It cost $15 more per night and was not an efficiency it was just a motel room with tiny bathroom and we didnt get the room we reserved. JUST STAY AWAY TRUST ME

Room Tip: Room 3 in the back corner hallway is very quiet and private

5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 22, 2013

We stayed at Silver Sands for 4 nights in June 2013. Its a very traditional american motel, not ultra modern and trendy. The location is great, only a couple of minutes to the best beach and plenty restaurants. Its in a quiet area just off the main road so you are not bothered with any noise or disturbance. Rooms include a small kitchen with full size fridge/freezer, two ring hob and microwave. The pool is small but the sunbathing and seating area around the pool is lovely. Jack and Anna were very helpful loaning us hair dryers and luggage scales. They work hard to keep this place clean and keep the guests happy. New towels were provided every day and free wifi available.

My girlfriend and I stayed here for 2 nights!

It was just perfect!

Spotless clean!

We had room #4 (large efficency room), which offers a lot of space and a fully equiped kitchen (even salt n pepper can be found).

3 min walk to one of the greatest beaches I ve ever seen!
(don t miss the sunset)

Very friendly owners! The owner told us, they avoid springbreakers and families. So it is really quiet! There is also a really friendly atmosphere between the other guests. They have a lot of regulars and long time guests.

The pool is great for the relaxing after an exhausting beach day!

And the best: they have very reasonable rates. We could not find anything for that price, which is at least rated 3 at tripadvisor.

I would highly recommend this accomodation. Make sure to book it in advance! We got lucky and they had a room for two days but there was no chance to extend our stay!

We stayed here for a week in January. Compared to many of the other motels we looked at it was reasonably priced. It's in a quieter part of Clearwater which suited us fine. It's just a couple of minutes walk to the beach and a 5/10 minute walk to the bars and restaurants. There's a trolley which runs close by taking you up and down the coast and to the supermarket about a 5 minute drive away.

The apartment itself was great. Clean and well equipped with comfy beds. Towels were replaced daily and we were very well looked after.

There's a nice pool with recliners also and a BBQ I believe is available for use.

The rooms are spacious and the kitchenettes are well equipped. Best of all, access to the beach is easiest anywhere -- just walk straight out the back. The pool, hot tub and sauna are clean. You can easily walk to surprisingly good restaurants (oops, the secret is out) and a well-stocked market. Rates are very reasonable for what you get.

Room Tip: All rooms have a good view, but upstairs rooms are even better.

This is amazing , quiet, very friendly and nice place, definitely we come back this summer and highly recommend to other people. Before I used to pay more money for the hotels, and I must admit , that this is a motel but in many cases it was much better than hotels))) and againe, what was really important to me- CLEAN, close to the octane)) we had small kitchen in our room, it was great opportunity to cook
