We have just returned from our sixth visit to the Ebb Tide and it was brilliant!! Once again Graham, Maria, Marek and Becky were the perfect hosts!! The accommodation was lovely, clean and modern with all the comforts of home! We had a fantastic time and are looking forward to returning next year!! I would recommend the Ebb Tide to anyone looking for a great place to stay in Clearwater.
Thank you Graham and Maria for making us feel so welcome yet again.

Room Tip: The rooms closer to the bay have great views!

We booked a room (efficiency apartment, actually) at the Ebb Tide entirely due to the reviews I read on TripAdvisor. There are one & two bedroom units, all with full kitchens. While a bit dated, our room was well-maintained and homey. The bed was a bit hard, but overall, we were very pleased with the accommodations. The Ebb Tide is classic, comfortable, clean, peaceful and in an ideal location, right on Clearwater Bay, and is designed to maximize views. Clearwater Beach is a short walk; maybe 3 blocks away.

The owners are friendly and helpful, and Maria shared some great tips with me about good places to eat. This is not a full-service hotel; rather a home away from home. There were no rowdy kids or loud parties - the Ebb Tide is more of a retreat for adults desiring rest and relaxation. My husband & I loved staying there and learned first hand why so many travelers stay here regularly. We originally booked two nights, but added a third because we were so enjoying our stay.

My husband and I stayed at The Ebb Tide on Aug. 3 2012. We usually stay in a condo or a home at Clearwater Beach. My daughter has stayed at Ebb Tide and told us to please stay there and we would not be disappointed. She was so right! It was so clean, quiet and everyone was so friendly. It was perfect. Yes we have stayed in more expensive places, but we wont anymore. This has everything you need. We slept so well there. The rooms were spotless. The view is great. It is so family oriented, we loved it. It is so convient to walk to the beach, shops and restaurants. We just kept telling each other how happy we were to have stayed there. Thank you for having such a great place. If you are into a loud crowded rowdy place, this isn't for you. If you are into quiet, relaxing, and clean, then you need to come here. Thank you Maria for such a great place for our 15th anniversary getaway.

We have been staying at The Ebb Tide since 1978, and have never been dissapointed with it !!
This year was no exception ! Had 8 units booked and had a great time. We have come to think of The Coates' as part of our family and we can not wait to get to see them. The Ebb Tide is very clean, comfortable and convient to all attractions. This year they had painted dolphins at the pier. Even though we have beeen going here for so olng we still have not seen all there is to see.Every year we discover something new !! Can't wait till the next visit .

This place is small, about 20 rooms but it is clean, the staff is friendly and the rooms were very comfortable. Has a nice swimming pool and great view of the intercoastal and you are about two blocks from the beach.

Room Tip: All rooms face the pool and they have only two floors but only stairs. So keep this in mind if you...

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!!!
