$375.00 for 2 nights. If the cost of this accommodation had been 1/3 of the price paid, I could say we got what we paid for. Toilet stopped up. Filthy floor. No clean towels unless you hunt them down. "No maid service" here means "not ever"! Air Conditioning barely works. You have been warned. On the upside, the manager is... More

We were really taken back when we checked in. We were told no maid service right after we paid our bill. We didn't like that but we were happy to be in Florida. We entered our room and now understood the reviews stating the furniture was old......old it was, a little dusty and not well maintained.....moving on into the bathroom,... More

A few minutes walk to the beach, restos and bars this place has it all. Don't expect silver service, modern amenities or daily 'maid' service or you'll be disappointed because it's not The Four Seasons. The linen and towels you start with are the same linen and towels you end up with regardless of long your stay. However if you... More

I would like to say that Joe Cipolla was great help to us. He gave us info on what places to go and enjoy. He also helped us decide on what we could do at night and what places where best to eat. Joe was very nice, enthusiastic, and concerning. Joe was always willing give us ideas and anything we... More

Affordable and clean with great access to the beach. Staff is superb. As mentioned, those with a keen sense of self-entitlement will be disappointed but those who understand value will be satisfied. Highly recommended.

Small motel in a great area close to the beach. Pool and outdoor area are beautiful. Rooms are clean and spacious but could use some updates. This motel is close to restaurants and other attractions. The manager is a gem, very helpful in getting you around the area.

The grounds are beautiful, you will be hard pressed to find anything nicer! Well kept, clean, 2 pools- both are maintained perfectly and are immaculate. Nice and private for spending time outside, area's are separated into small romantic settings. Lots of Palm trees, reminds me of Elvis' beach movies from the 60's. This also brings me to the drawback, even... More

We've visited Amber Tides three times in the last 4 years. We really enjoyed our stay here...but for those of you who are looking for 5 stars and an impeccable stay don't bother. We really like this place, but we are "fend for ourselves" types and don't feel like we have to spend the extra to be right on the... More
