“Affordable and nice!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed May 1, 2013

Stayed in April 2013 when my daughter had a volleyball tournament at Chula Vista. We stayed two nights for less than one night at Chula Vista and our stay included four Chula Vista waterpark bracelets. Close to downtown so we had lots of great food and entertainment nearby, but at the end of the strip so it was quiet. Rooms were large, clean and comfy and the staff was great. We will definitely be back!

Stayed here this past weekend and loved it. Had to switch rooms due to our last minute reservations. They made it easy to do and we switched right away in the morning before we went to Chula Vista with our FREE water park passes.
Never slept in a bed as comfortable as these. I believe they are memory foam.
Great value and i highly recommend staying here with kids or as an adult getaway.

We stayed for only one night and when we left we were kicking ourselves for not making this weekend a 2 night stay. Check in was great, the woman who checked us in was cheerful, bright, helpful, and was fun to joke around with. The place was packed this weekend with what looked like families having fun and that was great to see. Quite time was honored and we didn't hear any disturbances whatsoever. Very pleasantly surprised when we got to our room. We had a king bed/Jacuzzi room and the room was huge. A family of 4 could easily use this one room and bring in a roll away bed or so as it truly was comfortably sized. Addition of a couch would be the only amenity I would add. The bed was pretty comfy, much better than so many of those hard as a rock beds you find in most motel rooms. We'll definitely be coming back again.

We stayed hear June 2012. It was cheap and a nice motel. Rooms very spacious. Nice pool! Nice hot tub! Front desk staff courteous and helpful! The only 2 complaints that I had is that my feet turned black when walking on the carpet inside the room and also there wasn't any milk or juice offered for breakfast.

Hi karen! Thank you so much for your review! We are so happy to hear you enjoyed your stay with us last year and enjoyed the pool and hot tub! I am so sorry to hear your feet turned black from the carpeting! We are very fortunate in the summertime to be completely full almost 100% of the time, and I'm sure most people don't take their shoes off when walking on the carpeting. As I'm sure you are aware, it doesn't take long to track dirt in:( We do keep a very strict schedule as to when we shampoo our carpeting, as we have very high standards when it comes to the cleanliness of our rooms. We do offer juice including Sunny D for our guests available while the office is open each day and also available in one of the soda machines on property. We do not offer milk products because it is simply too hard to keep up with, due to the short expiration dates. To help offset any inconvenience, we provide mini fridges in each room so guests can purchase any milk, etc to bring along with them. Since you stayed with us last year; we have replaced the flooring in all of our bathrooms and made a few other improvements throughout the property as well. We hope you come visit us again this summer if the weather ever starts to cooperate:) Take care, Karen!
Sincerely,
Heather

Our family of five stayed at Amber's Hideaway during spring break this year. If was fun staying in the "original" side of town. Great location to access everything. The staff was very courteous. The rooms were VERY clean and they do a great job of making you feel welcome. I would definately stay there again.

I usually steer clear from "mom and pop" type hotels, but after reading the great reviews I decided to give it a try. We purchased our room and waterpark tickets in a package. We were able to visit 3 different water parks for a fraction of the price by taking advantage of Amber's Hideaway package. The room was very clean, parking was right by our room which was also nice. After spending the day at the water parks, our kids still enjoyed swimming in the pool and sitting in the beautiful hot tub. It was nice to get the kiddos in bed and then we were able to sit in the provided chairs directly outside our room and enjoy the rest of the evening.....yet we were right outside the door if they needed us. Our only regret is that we didn't bring along some food to cook on their charcoal grills. The lawn is perfect for relaxing after a busy day! Everyone's food smelled soooo good! The people at the front desk were great to recommend some great dining/pizza options that we took advantage of. A great hotel away from the hustle and bustle of the water parks.....yet conveniently located!

Thank you Amy you taking the time to leave us a review. I am glad to hear that you don't posterior type us as the usual "mom & Pop" type places. We are a family run business and we want our guest to get that personal attention unlike the larger places. I would say we are not the typical older motel because as of Jan 2011 all our rooms have been remodeled to be more a unisex/natural decors with comforts of home. We are continually doing updates even since we remodeled. Since you were last here we put all new tile in the bathroom floors and added a condo suite with a full kitchen and whirlpool tub. Bring on the food next time you come to either use the condo or the grills provided for you. We look forward to seeing you in the near future. Sincerely, Tanya

This was my family's first stay @ Amber's. We were very pleased. The rooms are very well kept, and plenty of room for the kids to spread out! The beds were surprisingly comfortable (for the price we expected hard/rough beds). Instantly made friends with the staff members there. No problem getting fresh towels/rags/trash bags, etc...Very easy check-in and check-out. Free wristbands to Chula Vista were a plus. We have 3 boys (19, 13 & 6) so that helped to keep them occupied while we were in town! Another plus was the location. Well within walking distance to just about anything you need/want. Again, boys were occupied for hours just walking the "strip" and going to the park just down the street. Like I said before...we will definitely be coming back very soon. Planning a lot of traveling this summer, so that will be our destination of choice! Keep up the great work Amber's!

To the Krutke family of Port I want to personally thank you for leaving us a review. I always enjoy visiting with my guest and getting to know you better. I/we work hard at making everybody feel welcome and like part of the family. We want our place to be part of your family tradition and we look so forward to your return visit. I am happy that our housekeepers kept you up on any supplies needed. The boys will love it in summer we have volley ball, ping pong, bad mitten, bean bag toss game and basket ball. That will keep them busy while you rest in our large heated pool or gazebo. Until we see you again. Sincerely, Tanya
