Silver Sands Motel
Ranked #49 of 98 Hotels in Clearwater
Reviewed March 20, 2010

The location of the hotel is ideal, far enough from the beach strip to be quiet but within close walking distance. The hotel is run by a husband and wife who are very friendly and helpful. Parking is free and close to the rooms. The room was spacious for a couple such as us, and although the bed was average, we slept well every night. The A/C and TV were adequate. The room has a quaint kitchen area with an oven, stove, sink, microwave, refrigerator, and dining table. Also, there is a small swimming pool and free wireless internet. Highly recommended!

We stayed for 3 nights and were very happy with our room. It was clean and the owners were very friendly and helpful. The location couldn't be better, nice and close to walk to the the Beach, Pier, and all the resaurants and shops. Not a five star but a great rate for staying that close to the beach.

We stayed at this small (maybe eight rooms), family-run motel while visiting relatives in Clearwater. It's a clean, comfortable, 1950s-era place, with a tiny "spa" pool added right outside the doors to the rooms. The bath in our room still had its 50s pink tile, and the cabinets in the efficiency kitchen are original. But why replace them if they are well-maintained? That's the attitude here, and it worked for us. The decor is heavy on artificial flowers and a mixture of prints, a styleless style that at first put off our adult daughter, but after a day or two she came to like it as much as I did. All of us loved the location. We walked to the beach, strolled the neighborhood, and took a dip in the pool. Price was a bargain, especially considering we usually stay in a chain hotel on ugly old US 19 for slightly more money. We'll definitely come back!

For friendly affordable Florida hospitality from superb hosts (and owners) the search should stop here! With a continual remodelling program, every visit reveals different changes to decor and facilities. Beach, restaurants and shopping is all a short walk away.
Quiet evenings can be spent on the patio, passing the time away the Florida evenings chatting with the other guests and enjoying a beer or two. With easy access to fishing, theme parks, the airports and city shopping just a nominal car ride away, clean and tidy rooms and facilities, reasonable rates and sunsets at the famous Pier 60, this must be the preferred choice of Clearwater Beach hospitality and accommodation, again and again.

We had such a nice, quiet, pleasant stay in mid-March. Hosts are super friendly as were the other guests; we walked to restaurants and the beach, the "Sunset on the Pier" in the evening, and many entertainments are walking distance, as well. Lovely quiet walks in the neighborhood, too; we felt perfectly safe there. The room was quaint, old but updated, completely clean and cheerful; kitchenette made it possible for us to eat breakfast there and lunch, if we preferred. Lovely patio space with shady and sunny spots, for reading, sipping wine, or making conversation with other friendly guests. We'd go back in a minute, if we could.

All you could ask for in a Motel at Clearwater Beach. Room very clean and good size, with everthing that you would need, also comfy bed. Excllent hosts, nothing to much trouble. Good location close to beach and restaurants. Even the gardens were very well maintained. Really enjoyed our stay.

We love staying at Silver Sands, it is small with a family atmosphere, We get together with our friends and have cookouts, or go out together to eat. The location is great for the beach walk, pier, marina or resturants. We have stayed there five years with Anna, Jackson and Elizabeth, we wouldn`t want anywhere else!! The rooms are nice and clean as we stay two months.
