Stayed here two nights and loved it. It's small and homely feeling. Walking distance to beach. Walked back and forth several times. Will most definitely stay here again if we are ever lucky enough to visit Clearwater.

My friends and I shared a room here in May of 2015 and were very satisfied overall with this motel. The room and amenities were simple but had everything we needed. It was a bonus having a kitchenette (fridge, stove, microwave, dishes) to do some of our meals in house to save some money. Also, they had two propane barbecues... More

We googled Cute nice hotels in Clearwater Beach, and Amber Tides hit the nail on the head. The owner was very pleasant and the room was clean and comfy. The location was the best walking distance to any and everything. I will be back and will recommend them to anyone.

On our way to clearwater beach with a party of 12 we were called to be told our other hotel reservation was cancelled... Desperate after arriving in Clearwater we stumbled upon this place. The owner was gracious to accomodate our large party in 3 separate units and saved the day! The units were clean, showers had hot water, the motel... More

This is a real gem of a hotel / motel. Built in the 50's it is now owned by Ulli from Germany, who has been here 14 years. Situated 150 metres from the Clearwater Beach on South Hamden Drive. All the rooms are on the ground floor, so access is excellent & free car parking is right next to the... More

This place has a real family feel. I stayed for a week in April 2015 and it was my third trip here. I love the place. It's small, but a very brief walk from the gulf beach and so friendly. It's older, but charming... gives you as much privacy or companionship as you'd like. This trip we met a couple... More

We had stayed at Amber Tides Motel in Clearwater FL. The motel is older, the outside of the motel could use a fresh look, plant life could use trimmed. The rooms are clean, at an ideal location, within walking distance of Pier 60, off the main street. What this motel lacks in appearance, is made up by the charm, laid... More

Ulli and Michelle could not have made our trip better. Motels can sometimes be impersonal, not so at Amber Tides. Many visitors were repeat customers and we see why. These other guests welcomed us too. If you are looking for cookie cutter, hotel coldness, look elsewhere. The value and being a very short walk to the beach, a huge benefit.... More

Had a wonderful stay here, my family and I stayed here a week with two rooms and the owners were there nonstop (from at least 8am-9-10pm) to assist with anything we needed. The rooms are clean, you get the key west island feel from staying here, pools are nice, and you are only a 5 min walk to the beach... More
