“Best location on the Beach & great service”
Reviewed 4 March 2013

We spent 19 nights in one of the newly remodeled one bedroom suites ( wonderful bed)and it was great!! Susan, Karen (the owner) and the rest of the staff took care of all the details and made our stay very enjoyable. So nice to sit out on the our patio and enjoy the ocean while having our own bbq dinners. We had our little puppy with us so we really appreciated the fact that this is a pet friendly property. The property is older but it is well kept and the beach front location cannot be beat. I highly recommend!

Hate to be the one to break up the Hallelujah Chorus but prospective visitors should be aware of a few things. First, there is no ice or vending on the property. At $150 per night (with taxes), our room was the "economy" room and at that price or higher you're told that you can walk to Walgreens two blocks away for conveniences you'd normally find at most lodging destinations. Unlike even the lowest-price chains, in-room coffee service was missing in action as well.

As to the room itself, "dingy" is the only word that applies. What some find charming and quaint about the furnishings we found dingy, worn and beat-up. The bathroom sink drain didn't work and had to be wedged open with a spoon. When we reported that it was met with a shrug. The towels were the consistency of 100-grit sandpaper (would not want to use them with even a slight sunburn). The refrigerator compressor kicked-in with a loud clank about every half hour, not real conducive to sound sleep. Front desk service was just OK, indifferent, certainly not warm or welcoming.

We only stayed at the Ebb Tide one night as a jump off point the next morning for a flight out of Miami. We were attracted by the web site and reviews. No reason to ever come back, which is good because we certainly won't.

kkaram, Owner at Ebb Tide Oceanfront Resort in Pompano Beach, Florida, responded to this review, 1 March 2013
I just heard from one of the Ebb Tide’s repeat hotel guests about a recent trip she made to Naples, Florida. The beaches there are lined with high-end condominiums and homes. She told me there are no motels/hotels on the beach except the Waldorf Astoria. Because she could not afford to stay there she checked into an inland hotel.
.
I see the large hotels and expensive condominiums and homes occupying so much of our beaches and ocean front areas throughout the world. This effectively precludes people of modest means from having access to these prized areas. As long as I continue to have the ability to provide people who are not wealthy with access to the ocean and beach here in Pompano, Florida I will do so.

I cannot provide the same amenities as higher-priced hotels can, however, given the modest price that we charge. The location is exquisite; just look at the photos on Trip Advisor. We occupy a beautiful area of the beach and proudly work to maintain and improve it. We attend to the hatching of the sea turtles and we re-vegetate the dunes; we have assumed responsibility to work to protect this beautiful area. Even on the grounds of the Ebb Tide, we work to enhance the natural environment. The Ebb Tide has a koi pond and we have planted many flowers and bushes and vegetation which attract and maintain butterflies, for example. We have tiki huts and beautiful brick barbecues and shuffle board and a well-maintained pool and unique, lovely art in each room. There are so many other things too numerous to mention that everyone will just have to come and see!

We pride ourselves on our extremely attentive, personalized service. Each guest is important. We know we can never make 100% of the people happy 100% of the time, but we try our hardest to do so. Superior Small Lodging has given us their certification because of our aggressive efforts to provide a very clean motel. While we may not provide coffee service in the rooms, a guest can stop by the office for a $1 latte, espresso or cappuccino…freshly made!

Our beach towels are meant to be durable and shouldn’t be considered bath towels but we are constantly listening and working to get better. As the owner, I live on-site to ensure that we provide the best experience for all of our guests. Please be assured that we never “shrug” if a concern is voiced. Employees are chosen because they echo my approach to managing a small, affordable, mom-and-pop, boutique hotel.

Kindly,
Karen Karam

Just finishing a stay at the Ebb Tide and will certainly return. The bathroom and furniture are old school, but it is spotlessly clean and very comfortable. The staff is very friendly and accommodating. The beach is gorgeous and there are great restaurants in walking distance. I highly recommend.

I have coming to the Ebb Tide for 40 years. I won't stay any where else. You can't get any closer to the ocean. Rooms are immaculate, grounds are very well kept. The owners go out of their way and can't do enough to make your vacation great. I love this place been coming since i was 16 and now bring my sons. We can't get enough! Its close to every where and out of the way. Can't wait for another visit!

A blast from the past. The two story old-fashioned motel, surrounding a lovely pool and right on the beach is a true find. Rooms are equipped with kitchens, and comfy beds, the management is friendly and accommodating, and it's location is perfect.
Yes, the bathrooms could use a little update, but it's all part of the charm. i cannot wait to go back to this retro resort.

I used to travel to Florida every winter during the late 50"s and early 60"s with my Grandparents. While we stayed at another property in Hollywood, the Ebb Tide evoked memories of those days. A similar style of low rise stucco buiding, this place has weathered well into 2013.

Our originally booked room was not available, so we were pleasantly surprised with an upgrade to a beautiful, very spacious, one bedroom apartment. It consisted of a large living room with flat screen tv (good for Superbowl), a large well equiped and modern kitchen, a dining area, a walk-in closet and separate bedroom and nicely appointed bathroom.

The Resort does show its age, but our room was very clean, and the other guests I spoke to had no complaints. There is an excellent heated pool, and lots of chairs and loungers available. Additionally there are several restaurants, a great pub, and a Walgreens all within easy walking distance.

The best feature, by far, is the location.....on a quiet street, directly on the beach. Literally, you can step out of your room and onto a wide, gorgeous beach. It doesn"t get any better.

This is not a fancy, luxurious place by any means......no room service, no bar, no restaurant, but for price and location it cannot be beat.

The staff and owners were very courteous, helpful, and genuinely concerned about their guests. I would not hesitate to return here again. Indeed, what first attracted me, was their willingness to accept reservations of less than one week. Many similar places require a one week minimum.

Top marks to the Ebb Tide.

The Ebb Tide Resort is a classic hotel from the days before the fancy, high rise beach front properties. This older, fairly well kept hotel was very clean, the beds were comfortable, the heated outdoor pool and patio were great, and one step through their back gate was wonderful, wide beach. If a person is expecting to stay in an updated, totally modern hotel with fancy rooms, this is not the place. However, it is a great place to relax and enjoy the pool and beach and get a very friendly, helpful welcome from the owners.
