The rooms are small, but clean. The staff is great! Amanda/Mandy was excellent! Game room up a block, heated outdoor pool and close to everything in walking distance. For a traveler on a budget you can't go wrong here!

We stayed here for one night in October. If you arrive during the week you need to check in at the sister hotel down the road (it's not far). Check in staff were fab - very friendly and pleasant. Amber Tides is very tired and needs quite a bit of TLC. We had two rooms. In one, the bathroom had... More

Thought the price was a bit high but it was par for a busy time of year. Canadian guests reckon very good rates for longer stays . Perhaps a bit basic. The rooms are wooden cabins.The pool is small.Next to a road that very occasionally gets noisey. It's clean , near the beach and a couple of bar/restaurants and very... More

We stayed here for 2 nights and found it to be quite comfortable. While its not on the beach, its close enough, just a short walk away. The room was spacious. Parking out the front. It's a little rundown but for the price we were happy. My biggest complaint was that the blinds didn't block out enough light in the... More

By far the most disgusting hotel I've ever stayed in. The office isn't even open, you have to go to a nice one down the road to check in and get your key. Plants are dead or overgrown, carpet is old, ripped or with holes. tile is ancient, broken, dirty as are the floors. Air conditioning is sub par. Patio... More

This place looked nothing like the online photos.. I was sent to the bigger motel for check in at the stay an play. Not having a voice cause of two tournaments in town, we had no where else to go. You could see the lacking maintenance without entering the room.

Our stay at Amber Tides over Memorial Day weekend was a good news/bad news situation. We (My husband, our one year old, and myself) stayed in Room 10, which is just a room--no kitchenette. The good news: The manager was very friendly and accommodating to all of our requests, eg. extra towels, fork and knife, beach towels. The pool area... More
