“Booked on a suggestion, staying because we love the place :)”
Reviewed 16 July 2012

My husband & I have been vacationing in Clearwater Beach since 2000, and used to stay on the S. side of the island.
We always chose establishments on Brightwater Dr. as we liked the view, and it was quieter and much less expensive than staying right on the beach.
When we learned that many of the motels/resorts would be closing due to builders purchasing the sites and building condos, we decided to act on the suggestion of another couple with whom we'd recently chatted. The property had already caught our eye as it has many of the amenities we look for, including price, cleanliness, on site laundry, even more spacious rooms, and an outstanding pool for the type & size property that it is.
Then there is that view. Even better than our last resort, with plenty of great fishing, and frequent dolphin & manatee sightings. Just remember that in order to see them you must adjust your schedule to theirs.
What we did not expect was how much more we were going to enjoy The Ebb Tide.
We did recognize a few faces from our past holidays, and quickly came to know them better, plus many more!
We were soon chatting with other folks that had been staying here for years, and became part of "the group" .
Many people check in and prefer to keep to themselves, and that is quite all right, and respected. It is your holiday.
Neither my husband nor I have ever been short time to ourselves, but should you be looking for some good, enthusiastic conversation we've never run short. Should I mention that we probably laugh the most....and hardest.....during our vacations here?
We believe it is because many of the folks that stay here do so because they are content in their surroundings, resulting in a great, relaxing fun filled vacation that so many return to year after year.
We are very content here at The Ebb Tide and it stems from the amount of effort and consideration put forth from the family that owns & runs their establishment, and is omnipresent in ensure that it stays that way.
Thank you Graham, Marisia, Marek & Becki for being the folks that you are.
You are wonderful hosts.
See you soon,
Cheers!

Room Tip: We find that we prefer the N. side of the island as it is quieter and less congested.

We have just returned from yet another visit to Ebb Tide. 4 weeks was just not long enough!!
What is special about Ebb Tide? It is clean,comfortable and in a wonderful location right on the bay.Nothing is too much trouble for the owners,(The Coates Family) in fact their key phrase is ' if we can help in any way,just ask' and they mean it! Okay they did not arrange tropical storm Debby,a new experience for us,but one we would not have missed and one day in a four week holiday is nothing.Apart from that Florida and Ebb Tide lived up to our expectations and we have already booked for next year.That speaks for itself!!!

My daughter and me stayed here for 7 days and had a wonderful stay. Right on the bay, nice and quiet but not far from the beach. Amazing place to stay and will stay again. My daughter is 15 years old and enjoyed the pool and how quiete it was. Great place to stay while on vacation. Loved it!!!!

We absolutely love this place!! The location, the friendly atmosphere, the amenities was exactly what we wanted. We will return and are telling everyone we know to pay them a visit! We wouldn't stay anywhere else in Clearwater.

Just back from our 63rd stay at the Ebb tide and I will say this one was different. Tropical storm Debby came in but we still had great weather for 90% of our stay. Other guests seemed to not mind one day of foul weather either! Met some more new people as we usually do and we hope to see them again, that is what makes staying at the ET great, always meeting new people!!! Was nice to see all of the Coates family again and we're counting on seeing them again real soon!

in slight need of update?.great place to stay but regular holidaymakers seem to take over the place.but if you like that sort of thats up to you.only regulars think its the best but a lot better hotels and motels in clearwater.a lot of non fishermen on dock somone will get hooked one day?

Room Tip: dont look at the pictures of rooms and think great?you may be upset when you get to your room.

EbbTideMotel, Owner at Ebb Tide Waterfront Resort, responded to this review, 19 June 2012
I'm very sorry that you didn't have the best expereience staying at our property. I'm also rather surprised by these comments, especially as with either myself or one of my family members interacting with either you or your wife on practically a daily basis, there was never any mention of a complaint with either - unit, property, or fishing pier. Frequent guests are always friendly and informative to new guests. Our fishing pier is not only for fisherman but is used by anyone who wishes to read a book or have peice of mind on the water. All of the photographs on the internet and website are non professional, taken by an ordinary camera, and unedited. We are an SSL property and proud acheivers of the White Glove award. Normally, if there is excess cleaning to be done we usually do charge a house fee.
