“Great place to stay”
Reviewed January 4, 2014

We stayed here for 4 nights and could not have been more comfy, when we arrived joe up graded are room which was a nice surprise and the room was great very clean and had all we needed ie: cooker full size fridge and cups plates and so forth . Joe was very helpful and a really nice guy. If we come back to this area we would stay here again with out a doubt.

Never stayed in a motel before and found this place satisfactory.It had all the facilities we needed for a one week stay. The room was a good size, clean and beds were comfortable, just could do with a freshen up.

Joe the manager was very helpful

Joe, the Property Manager, was very friendly and helpful to answer all of our questions. We had never been to this area before so we had lots of questions. We stayed in a king room with a kitchen. The room was very clean and the kitchen stocked with the dishes and pots, etc that we needed. Having a full size frig and microwave was very nice. The heated pool was wonderful. It is next to a street, but there was not much traffic. The dining tables by the pool had grills and this was a very nice feature. We also enjoyed relaxing by the pool in the rocking chairs. This place was a great value and turned out to be wonderful gem where we would absolutely stay again.

First time at the Amber Tides Motel. Pleasant spacious accommodations close to beach and most of Clearwater attractions. A good value . We stayed in the newer remodeled section. Clean and comfortable. Beds were firm with softer tops (very nice). Single level no elevators or long walks to your rooms here. Outside areas groomed and nicely planted. Staff of 1 (Joe) very accommodating - Thank You -

I had never been to this part of Florida before and had no idea of where to stay I was so lucky to find this place for such a affordable price. Joe was really nice and our room was very neat and clean. It isn't fancy but you have everything you need and the beach is a 5 minute walk down the road... fare warning though the walls are very thin you can hear everything that is going on outside.

My son and I stayed here with my brother, just for the one night unfortunately. It was such a cute looking place. We felt at home as soon as we arrived. The pool was cold but we managed to enjoy a short swim before we had to go out. The room we stayed in was clean and cool. We hope to return next year - for a longer stay!)

We recently stayed at this lovely motel. Joe was a wonderful host. The room was very clean & comfortable. The atmosphere was super for us nature lovers with lots of plants. Although the location is in the midst of many other buildings, we felt like we were in a tropical paradise. We shared with family & friends, if you looking for a place to stay in this area, we highly recommend Amber Tides Motel. Thank You! Your new fans - Michele & Fabian
