What a wonderful place to stay! so full of character and quaint! such a lovely change from all the uniform exactly the same hotels! Very clean and the owners were very helpful and welcoming. My husband found this place when we were actually on the road for a few days in Clearwater beach, travelling with our two daughters over from... More

I would stay here again. Older style motel property, but relatively well kept up - not a lot of peeling paint or old carpet. Clean & quiet with great hosts / property managers. Didn't have any issues. Room was spacious (got the room with full kitchen). Didn't swim, but pool looked nice. Walking distance to several restaurant with high ratings... More

Apparently my reservation was double booked. Said they called 4 times to tell me. never got a call. lady at desk took no responsibility and did nothing to help us find another place to stay. Thankfully there was also a gentleman there who called another place for us and got us a room. Guess it all worked out for the... More

If you are looking for a commercialized high rise this is not the place for you. If you want to feel what Clearwater Beach was in the 50s and enjoy the history then there is no where else to stay on the beach. This motel has stayed true to island life and is a throwback to what I remember as... More

My wife and I stayed here from June 30th to July 4th of 2015. We made reservations back in March ,so we planned ahead. This is one of only handful of small older "mom and pop" hotels left in Clearwater Beach. A lot of construction on hi rise hotels in area. After my wife called around for prices, we found... More

Stayed here for 5 days and enjoyed everyday. Rooms were clean and kitchen was very handy. More like staying at a family members home then a motel. Short walk to the beach and the Pier. Would definitely stay again.

This really was a great stay, very quaint little hotel with AMAZING owners. They were so kind and accommodating. The rooms were clean and comfortable, out of style but no big deal! We stayed in the apartment efficiency type room and it had a kitchen with a seating area, a living room, bathroom and a bedroom with a closet and... More

This motel is adorable! The grounds are lovely, there are plenty of table & chairs in the shade, two pools, and parking right outside the motel. The owners are the nicest people who were very accommodating. When my parents and I arrived late @ night, they were waiting for us and thankfully so because we needed to change rooms for... More

My family and I had 4 rooms at Amber Tides this weekend and had a great stay! Our room was clean and had a full kitchen. We had a late arrival (after midnight) and the proprietors were able to leave a key for us and make sure our room was ready. We loved eating our breakfast outside next to the... More
