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

We stayed for 2 nights here, whilst meeting family. When we checked in, the manager was helpful and friendly. He showed us to our VERY basic room. No toiletries at all, not even a small bar of complimentary soap. The bed linen was clean, but the floors were dirty, as was proved when we pulled our red suitcase along the... More

My husband and I stayed here for a quick trip this past weekend. Joe was great and very helpful and generous. The Hotel is definitely reminiscent of the 50's/60's in building style which I found to be really cute. The grounds were very tropical, the heated pool was awesome and since it is a small hotel, the pool was never... More

$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
