a small, privately-owned hotel which, especially for the price, offers a great location and much more than a hotel room. the little suites are delightful, with a lot of care going into a small, cute space. i've been going there for several years and it's always lovely. mara

Had an amazing time at the Amber Tides. It was just what we needed after a very long trip. Very accommodating and friendly. The owners were extremely helpful and kind. We were there July 4th, and definitely plan on going again. Laid back,casual. very clean, and very inviting. Georgie and Jenn

I booked a one bedroom apartment for my mom and I and we were quite pleasantly surprised! The room was quite spacious and the 2 double beds were very comfortable! Slept like babies! The location is fantastic. Only a 5 minute walk to the beach with on-site parking. Just grab your stuff and head to the beach! The only downside,... More

This was our 2nd visit to Amber Tides. A great place. Short walk to beach for sunset and restaurants. We stayed here in early July '16 from Monday to Saturday. Owners are very friendly and helpful. Palm trees and other plants around pool area make it beautiful. Older buildings ,but kept up nice.

My family spent an overnight at Amber Tides. We rented 2 adjacent non-smoking rooms. Both rooms were very clean and spacious and included a full kitchen/dining area equipped with cooking and dishware. We spent the day in Clearwater Beach following our 4-day Disney trip. Our kids commented that the rooms were actually bigger and more comfortable than the Disney All-Star... More

We found this little motel through trip advisor and had a lovely 3 days there. It has less than 20 rooms. The 2 that we used were large, clean and well appointed. The owner and his partner were very helpful and friendly. Location is excellent, being only 2 minutes walk from the beach, shops and eateries with free allocated parking... More

This motel was very clean and comfortable. It was relaxing and private due to the beautiful landscaping. The manager was extremely helpful and always there. The decor was 60s style, but that was fine with me. Felt like home!!!!!

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
Back under German Management, Ulli & Michelle. Our Motel is located two blocks from Clearwater South Beach, less then 5 minutes walk to the Beach, Restaurants, Bars and Shopping. If you like the Key West feel you will love staying at our quaintly accomodated property with the tropically landscaped pool area. We have grills and sitting areas nestled in the palms for that island feel. All our rooms are non-smoking. We do allow smoking outside of the rooms and around the courtyard. ... more   less
