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...

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!!!!!

My partner and I stayed here last week. Whilst the room rate was ok the buildings in need of repair. It's very tired looking and you can see lots of bodge job repairs all over the place. Rooms were dingy and dark and not particularly clean. Bathroom had numerous cracked tiles and was grubby. One thing that was lovely was...

My family and I were here July 4. There is a boat dock literally 50 feet from the door with a perfect view of fireworks from the causeway. There are two pools, one is perfect for young kids because it is a little smaller. Both warm!!!! There are unlimited covered tables in the courtyard each with grill and utensils for...

We stayed for the Fourth of July. Michelle was nice enough to let us book one night since we were passing through to Crystal River. We enjoyed the pool again and went to watch the fireworks. I love that this place is a close walk to the beach and close to the pier. I do wish the mattresses would be...

Back again a year later and it's all good at Amber Tides. Same 50's/60's style. This time we had a suite apartment with 2 queen beds in 1 bedroom, a large kitchen & living area + bathroom with shower & toilet. The only things missing now are new mattresses, the current ones are a bit tired, but I'm sure Ulli...

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
