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!

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
