“Worst hotel ever, rude rude rude.”
Reviewed 12 September 2011

Owner was very very cheap and rude. He acted like we wanted his bank account number when we asked for another towel after 3 days of staying there. He also yelled at my wife because she used a washcloth to clean up when there were no other options. No soap. Kitchens aren't even half kitchens, even though he describes them as full kitchens. I realized he overcharged us after looking at the website and he acted like he was helping me out. It's no wonder his parking lot is empty everytime I drive by. Biggest waste of a week off. Owne is a rude and treats his wife like an endentured servant. horrible owner

We stayed in April-may. The motel is small but has everything you would like to relax our room (4) was away from the road. and we made lots of friends, Free laundry and gas barbercue, Just needs a bit of TLC. We had a nice time it was like two holidays in one, staying with the people we met, some English, Croatia(Canadians) Ziggy&Bosha plus all his friends, who had driven from Canada very nice to meet. German (Canadians) as well..
Would stay again, very laid back motel. Stan & Sue Manchester UK

This has been our favorite place growing up as kids dating back to 1972 when our parents took our family to visit my grandfather. Recently being back there after many years the place is just NOT the same place we remembered as kids, the rooms where woren from wear, roaches, the electrical is terrible, which my husband being an electrican, tried to help the man out since they were very nice, but the motel is in need of much repair. The only thing it looks like they keep up with is the pool. the beds were comfortable, the the sofa bed in the living room smelled moldy. One night my brother and father actually saw a rat running across the roof. I was constantly finding roaches in the toaster, behind the stove and even in the refrig. My dream vacation was a night mare we were actually there when Bonnie and Charlie (hurricanes) and had to move to another motel, which in the evacutions someone stole my pocketbook out the motel. The people who now run the motel are very nice but nothing compared to when Gus had the motel. My family want to come to Treasure Island again but it won't be at the EBB TIDE. When our family came we bacially had every room for the exception of maybe 3 -4 room, Shame that it's not up to par. It was the best vacations we took as kids and wanted to share the same experience with our children.

The room was very small. Our room had one full size bed and one twin size bed, 3 bath towels, 3 hand towels and 3 wash cloths to use. Sheets and towels worn thin. But the worst part was unsafe electrical problem. Our curling iron blew out all the electricity in the room twice. The second time it blew the cord off the end of the curling iron , burning a hole in my friend's shirt and burning her stomach where it hit her.. No extra towels/washcloths were offered so we bought washcloths to use during our stay. Flooring in this room is not clean. There are much better motels on Treasure Island for the same price.

Middle east ownership has changed this tiny dive motel from a quaint place to stay to a run down, seedy crack hotel. The hospitality was horrible, and the manager seemed more suited to a pay-by-the-hour setting. Exposed wiring above the shuffleboard court posed a serious risk to children playing, and dead bugs outside the doors hadn't been cleaned up. I wouldn't recommend spending one dollar to stay here when the Oasis Palms is right down the street and looks better.

This was the worst hotel I'v ever stayed in. It smells and the air conditioner doesn't get the room to a comfortable temp. I felt dirty just being in the room.

We have been staying at the Ebb Tide for more than 15 years and would not think of going anywhere else. The owners are like family and motel is kid friendly. Ample parking and beach access, barbecue grill and awesome pool. Counting the days till the summer where we will spend an entire month in comfort! everyone who stays there is sure to return and near everything. Good Job owners Munir and Val!
