Nestled in the heart of key biscayne, Silver Sands was like stepping into the past of those classic Florida motels. Pool, beach, lovely gardens and friendly staff. It was affordable and clean. We were there for my niece's wedding. When it looked like it might be rained out at the state park, these wonderful folks offered to help supply a... More

Well we were going to stay up in Miami beach but decided to look out a bit. This place has only one things going for it, location. And then its only if you have a room close to the beach side, if not you still have a hump to get to beach. The place is dated, to put it kindly,... More

I'll preface by stating I am an historic/classic lodging fan. This early 50's built single level motel is nestled between 2 high rises and is a voice from the past. It is value priced and little changed from the post Hurricane Andrew renovation in '92. This property has a nice pool and courtyard with good landscaping and abundant flora. The... More

Unlike some other reviewers, we actually had great interaction with the people at the front desk... and that's our only highlight of the entire thing. As soon as we got the keys and started walking to our room, my gut started telling me we had made a mistake. The other guests we ran into looked like old zombies... they had... More

We booked the place as last minute on hotels.com. When I walked in, the front desk person didn't even bother to say hello. She proceeded to tell us that she is not sure if the pool is usable. Someone supposedly complained about it being unclean. No attempt to say whether someone will clean it or if she was planning to... More

I stay here at least once a month or once every two months. It is a hidden gem. It is not luxurious but you do have direct beach access and a clean pool. If you want to enjoy a beautiful beach and clean pool it is the place to be. Being that it is a small motel style the pool... More

I've stayed here once before. I'm less impressed w/ the motel on my second visit for a few reasons: 1) Rate: they changed the rate on us at arrival. I had booked about 6 months in advance and was quoted one rate. I confirmed that 3 wks before arrival (with the same person I booked the room). At arrival the... More

This motel is beachfront and very convenient to everything in Key Biscayne. The grounds ajre beautiful. The rooms are old fashioned and dated, but clean and relatively well maintained for its age. The price is reasonable given the lack of alternatives on the Key

I am from Miami and used to go to the Sand Bar lounge (which is no longer there) when a lot younger. This accommodation is what you would expect from a motel of the 50's. Clean enough, terrazzo floors, and furnishings were just barley suitable. Over all (considering rate) we enjoyed. Beach front and nice pool.

If you compare this motel to the other super hotels nearby, you share the same beach and the same sun for a fraction of the money. Yes, the rooms are simple but clean, so is the swimming pool. We are happy that we have discovered this secret - and hope the owner will not sell it to one of the... More
