O.K. all you viewers out there. Let me start by saying, anywhere you go, only because I saw negative comments by others, look, if you are looking to find something wrong about a place, even at top star rated hotels you are going to find something wrong. Tides Inn is not a top star rated hotel, and I am all... More

The friendly staff picked us up at the airport and gave us a small tour of the beautiful town. When we arrived at the hotel they helped carry our bags to our room. We had a room over looking the water and it was wonderful to wake up and go to bed to a breath taking view of the water... More

I stayed in Petersburg for 3 nights and the staff was wonderful. I have read reviews warning get the outer waterfront view rooms since will be looking at a wall. Yes I was looking at a wall but for me a room is to sleep and bath and especially a gem of a village like Petersburg. The furniture was dated,... More

This place is a dive. The décor is from the 70s and still has bedspreads. The carpet is worn out. The hallways can be very noisy from fishermen partying. The view rooms do have a mini fridg and microwave. Would not recommend.

I had read some other reviews and was not looking forward to our stay but I found the hotel to be ok. The people who worked there provided excellent service and the rooms were ok considering the location. People who come to Alaska and expect the Ritz should stay home and go to the mall.

Stayed the last two days of a four day stay in Petersburg. Management was very helpful and even got us a free taxi in the wee-hours to catch our ferry. Room was a great deal for the money. It was also nice to be a block up the hill and more in the neighborhood.

Knowledgeable, friendly, clean and welcoming, the Tides inn was a joy to spend time in while not working on the fishing boats. Too many days and rooms to count, each one a great night sleep with a friendly staff to greet you for a delightful breakfast. Cant wait to go back!

I just spent the month of March in Petersburg doing Construction work. Along with my crew, four others, we stayed at the Tides Inn. Everything about the stay was a good experience. The rooms were clean and quiet, the breakfast was standard cerial and breads + waffles. All of the staff were great, they even cooked us dinner a few... More

We have stayed at the Tides Inn many times while our children played sports (from 9-year old Little League tournament through high school). The staff is very friendly and helpful and the location is great (close to town, the baseball fields and the gym). The rooms, however, need some tlc! After walking on the carpet for a couple of hours,... More
