Silver Beach Hotel

Reviewed October 28, 2012

We stayed here because it was close to downtown, and it had an indoor pool. The pool was over chlorinated so bad it burned my eyes and i had to get out. I told a maint. person who tested the water. The management staff seemed mildly apologetic, offered no discount. The room was filthy, fingernail clippings on floor, hair in tub. Breakfast was not too good. cushions stained, tables dirty. They need to upgrade cleaning procedures

Yes, the hotel is aged, but the staff is awsome! Yes, it's a little spendy, but you are close to the beach, and everywhere I've stayed coast to coast, I've had to pay to be close to the water or have a view. We had an older room, but we only slept in it........being that close to the beach, shopping, wine tasting, and good food, who spends that much time in a room? It was realatively quiet, and I for one, had not problems at all. I would stay there again!

Room Tip: Higher floors are better

This hotel's best selling point is the wonderful black out shades in the rooms. It is close to the beach but beware it is loud. Lots of families with young children. The rooms are adequate but not worth the money.

We usually stay at another hotel right on the bluff but they were booked. We had walked through here before and decided to give it a try. I agree that the price is a little high for a Saturday, but we wanted to be close to everything. We thought the bar was neat, the hot tub/pool area was great. The bed was comfortable and the room seemed clean to us. Does the place need some updating.....sure. Wasn't a concern to us. Yes the shower head was low. Big deal. My wife and I were there to enjoy ourselves! We liked the hotel and will definitely be back again. And the staff was extremely friendly! Plus breakfast! This place had eggs, sausage, bagels waffles, cereal, coffee, 4 juices, milk and fruit. The other place we have stayed at on the bluff (for more money) has no where near that kind of breakfast......we will see you again silver beach hotel!

Room Tip: I would recommend asking a "lake view".

I highly recommend not staying at this hotel. First, the rooms do not look like the rooms on their website. Our room was old and run down. Second it was directly above the bar that's Open til 2 am playing loud music. Third, parking was very limited. We went out for a very nice dinner at Tabor Hill. Upon our return to the hotel, there was no available parking on the property. I had to park down the street, on the street. The manager was apologetic but not really concerned with my issues. For a $150.00 a night I expect a lot more.

We stayed Mo,Tu; Sept 10,11. We must have hit the jackpot compared to the other recent reviews during the same time frame. Entire property is dated from days gone by but very well kept. The only reason not rating excellent is that the lounge does not serve meals other than pizza, fast-food, etc...but many local restaurants and cafes within walking distance. Room was on 6th floor facing the beach; had a very small but adequate balcony. Elevators were very unique in decor - would not exchange them for "speedier" models ever!!! Pool area was in need of detailed cleaning but pool itself was very clean (but could have been a little bit warmer) We have stayed at several hotels in St Joe area over the past few years including Holiday Inn, Hampton, various suites: Silver Beach Hotel surpasses them all! We will return again and again for sure.

Room Tip: We didn't witness any of the negativity listed in other reviews about this hotel. Upper floor r...

My fiancee left her ID and Debit card on the night stand next to the bed. Went back about an hour later and the ID was stuffed into one of the magazines on the night stand and the debit card was missing. Don't leave anything of value in your rooms it might just end up missing.

Also lobby has a foul smell and it is only masked by air freshener for most of the day.

No water pressure in the showers and the height of the shower head was designed for a 5' tall person.

Also "Balcony" was actually the roof of the lobby/bar on second floor.
