Just north of main beach and across PCH this small hotel is very clean and very reasonably priced. The proprietors were very friendly and welcoming. Location is convenient to all of what LB has to offer and we will be back. They have a nice saltwater pool and outdoor fireplace.

Pet friendly but lock in rate before going as it varies. You can stay here for the year of your birth as the rate on actual birthday but must stay at least 2 nights. I was born in 1944 so $44 and one night regular rate plus pet fee. It's darling with a bit of street noise which wasn't enough... More

We enjoyed our stay at the Tides. The rooms are nice and the staff is friendly. We were able to walk to the beach and to downtown Laguna Beach. There is street noise from the passing highway which I'm sure is true with other hotels in Laguna Beach.

One of my dearest friends and I decided on a road trip. The Tides Inn provided VERY clean and comfortable accommodations. The office staff were very friendly and helpful. It's close (walking distance) to EVERYTHING Laguna Beach. We loved the Inn, the beach, the shopping, the art, and the area. Would definitely stay here again and recommend to others.

The Tides Inn was a lovely place for my husband and I to stay our one night in Laguna Beach. We stayed in Room #208 which seemed more like a couple of little rooms in a vintage house than a standard motel room - we liked it! Everything was cute and clean. There are no elevators so be prepared for... More

After reading the amazing reviews, my daughter and I decided to stay at this vintage hotel that is in a great location. It turned out to be a nightmare where we got no sleep and had to change our own sheets. Here are a few reasons that I gave this a terrible review. - The pillows are completely flat and... More

As every business owner is well aware, every so often an "impossible to please" guest comes along. It was clear from the beginning that you were unhappy with our hotel. Sadly for all of us, no matter what we did to try to make your stay enjoyable, you continued to be unhappy here. In the end, we can see that... More

With parking at a premium in Laguna Beach it's great to have a hotel so well located - you can walk to just about everything. Parking is included in the room rate and they have a spot for each room so you can still find parking if you return late at night. Thanks to input from previous reviewers we requested... More

The Tides was directly across PCH from the beach and Heisler Park, which was great! Our room (#201), though small, was cute and cozy. However, it was noisy since it faces PCH (as do rooms 101 and 102). It's in a perfect location to walk to shops and restaurants. If you take a right out of the hotel, it's a... More

My fiancé grew up in Laguna Niguel and I wanted to go back and have her show me where she grew up. We booked a room at The Tides based on the reviews here and we couldn't of been happier. Our room was clean, had a small kitchen with microwave, dishes and utensils, min fridge, and a coffee maker. The... More
