We stayed in Clearwater due to missing our cruise departure. Amber tides was a perfect spot! The owner was very nice and gave us a gift bag, and bottle of champagne for the New Year! The rooms were very clean and no stale cigarette smoke! Beds were comfortable and location excellent! The landscaping was beautiful and you were able to... More

I reserved a motel room through Hotels.com months prior to my date of arrival. When we arrived at 3:30 pm to check in, the clerk told us that they tried to call because there was an issue with my credit card, but they never called my cell phone (only house phone which was 1290 miles away) That being said, my...

I can't wait to stay again! Across the street from beaches. Walking distance to all of Clearwater Beach strip! This was a perfect place to relax. Great on the pocket. Picture tell 1000 words. See you soon and I highly recommend booking a few nights soon!

This is a very nice place in Clearwater, it's tucked away sort of but still close to the action in Clearwater. The layout is very nice and almost looks like a sort of mountain village. We arrived very late, around 11pm, the office shuts at 5pm so you should keep that in mind when you book. In our case the... More

Excellent place to stay... I usually never stay at small mom & pop places, but the reviews on this one were so good I gave it a try. Nothing to complain about here! NO mildewy smell even though the beach is 2 blocks away. Well kept up & clean. 2 small pools, bbq grills, comfy beds, good wifi, quirky and... More

Older mom & pop motel. Great location, 2 blocks to everything. The rooms were spacious and clean. Arrived Thanksgiving Day, 2015. We were treated to a Thanksgiving dinner by the owners, Uli and Michelle. Pool areas were nice and tropical. Room rates were reasonable. Lots of parking. Would definitely stay here again.

Wonderful stay at Amber Tides! Rooms are very clean with frig, microwave, flat screen, WiFi. The bed linens are dazzling white and so soft. The grounds have a topical feel, very relaxing and comfortable. The location is an easy and short walk to the wide, white sand beach. Best of all are Uli and Michelle, the welcoming owners. Their motto... More

This is not a chain motel, reminds me of the motels from when I was a kid. Each room has slightly different decorations. Very much a mom and pop establishment. We found the room a bit dated but clean and had necessities. We were at this location for the beach so spent little time in room itself. 2 pools on... More

We really liked the relaxed and tropical vibe. The beds are REALLY comfy and the rooms are clean. I like to frequent local places but this was above my expectations. p.s. I am very picky about cleanliness : )

Amber Tides reminded me of happy times I spent on Clearwater Beach 30 years ago before all the high-rise, expensive hotels were built. An easy 1 1/2 block walk to the beach; basic, affordable but very clean rooms, two spotless pools, quiet patios under the palms, and the owner/managers were helpful on site almost 24/7 if we needed anything. I... More
