A gem of a place. We loved it. Its not the Hilton and that's the point. We will be back next time we are in Clearwater. Our room was small but all the basics are covered. The 2 pools are nice and the place just feels chill.

nice motel, all the basics were well covered, very clean, nice pool, good location with car, friendly owners, and it seems to attract friendly guests. Met some retired couples who told us they've been coming for years. I recommend it.

I've travelled a lot round the US and this is the best bed I've slept on ever. Finally, a bed that isn't like a marshmallow that wants to eat you.You can fall asleep and stay asleep all night til morning as you won't feel the other person in the bed moving. The location is great, only two streets between the... More

Clean, comfortable, nicely decorated rooms. A heated pool if preferred, with lot of plants around. One block from the beach. Close to everything attractive. Friendly staff. German speaking, that could be an advantage for some travelers. Perfect service. We extended our stay there, it was simply a must :)

We just stayed three nights at the Amber Tides Motel. The rooms are quite clean and nice and some have balconies overlooking the water (ours did). We stayed there for the closeness to the hospital, but would stay again whenever we are in the area. Lots to do in the area.

My sister and I stayed over night at the Amber Tides and we really enjoyed ourselves. The room was renovated with tile floors a nice bed and bathroom along with a small kitchen. I will definitely stay here again. The staff, Joe and Amanda were really helpful and nice. We used the Free Rides to go to Rockaways for dinner.

My family and I stayed here for three nights. The place is great for the value and the rooms were clean. The motel is one block from the beach and everything is within walking distance. If you are not looking for the Ritz Carlton you will not be disappointed.

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!
