Love this place and plan to stay again for a week.

Key Biscayne is a beautiful and safe place. The hotel needs to be remodeled.

I loved that it was right on the beach. It was also clean. I didn’t like that it’s was very old and a few fruit flies hanging around. I could also hear my neighbors talking.

Alternative throwback lodging in Key Biscayne. Quality for the price

Good experience for a 2 star hotel. Rooms are clean and location excellent, right on beach. Even received complimentary late checkout.

This motel is on the coast in one of the most exclusive areas in the country. It sits next to a 5-Star Ritz Carlton costing at least 4 times the price per night. This was a business trip as our band was playing an event at the Ritz and we needed reasonable overnight lodging. Silver Sands was just fine for this. They did not have my Orbitz confirmation when I called to verify, however the staff was helpful in getting us our room and honored the Orbitz price with no issue. This is an older motel and I would not recommend it for a week-long family vacation, but for an overnight in a fancy neighborhood, it's quite acceptable. it appears that the motel is undergoing upgrades so it's likely to get better over time. I would stay there again under similar circumstances.

The resort was no hustle or bustle. It was a good place to stay. It could use some updates to the rooms, but other than that it was a nice place to stay

Great beachfront hotel. Go with the gardenview or cottages for a more resort-like experience. Plenty of great and affordable food options within a short drive, 10 minute walk, or delivery. Take advantage of the kitchenette with your own drinks (no glass by the pool).

The room was OK but there was no breakfast offered. Even much less expensive motels provide something for guests in the morning.

Great location & grounds. Wifi was spotty and slower than it should be

This place was awesome. Short walk to Crandon Park and restaurants. It was clean and had everything you needed. The grounds were kept really nice. It was like stepping back in time to a simple, friendly beach hotel. We couldn't have been happier with our stay. As for the negative reviews- if you are looking for something fancy and plan to sit in your room the whole time pay for the Ritz. If you want the same awesome beach and old time charm stay here! Loved it. We will be back.

The pool and grounds were nice . It’s an old hotel so it looked worn in the rooms . Not a bargain at 190.00 . The whole area is expensive ! We actually were told we could not get a meal in the town for less than100.00 -200.00 ! We got food from the supermarket and cooked it in the microwave . The kitchenette in our room was very useful .

Right on the beach, woke up and walk to the beach was 1 minute such a great feeling.

we asked for King Size bed and u gave us double beds Next time please read the info when we check in

Older motel but clean with a fantastic location at a lower price than anything else around there.

Fabulous beach location. Hotel need some attention. The grounds are really nice. Love the original retro character, however the rooms desperately need updating.

Funky throwback! Not for those looking for modern. Very polite and helpful front desk staff. Smile at housekeeping staff, they may smile back*. Great pool. A couple friendly iguanas. Wonderful part of the beach. We love the low profile against all the tall buildings around it. Ubers never took more than 3 minutes to get there. Not particularly walkable though it is somewhat close to the main drag. *Do check for the odd fish hook, frayed electrical wiring on lamps, and ask when the smoke alarm batteries were last checked. Overall lots of character - we would come back for sure for the old florida flavor.
