I did a lot of research to find the best place for the best off-season price in Laguna Beach for a 2 night stay. And for me it has proved to be The Tides Inn, an older smaller Hotel (definitely part of it's charm) located on Pacific Coast Highway. We enjoyed a lovely fireside chat (at the pool area) with...

We had a very comfortable stay at the Tides Inn. The nicely furnished and clean room with king size bed was spacious & comfortable, and we really liked the kitchenette. Flatscreen tv, free wifi and beach chairs/towels (free of charge) made it even more comfortable. The front desk staff member went out of his way to help us with all... More

I stayed at The Tides in April for one Saturday night. Very professional, hospitable staff. The Inn is an older motel-like building, but it's very tastefully decorated, clean, and cozy. Gorgeous saltwater pool with BBQ, chaise lounges, etc. The room was comfortable, with a large fireplace. The location is ideal, in walking distance to the center of town and shops,... More

We have stayed at The Tides twice now and have recommended it to our family and friends. It is very cozy and friendly. The rooms we had were large and nicely furnished with "at home" items like books, games, and interesting pictures. The parking is a little cramped so don't bring a big van or truck. It's within walking distance... More

Myself, my husband and 2 friends stayed here for 1 night whilst we travelled California. The rooms are beautifully spacious (we had 2 huge beds in one room, with a seperate kitchen and large bathroom)clean, and so well presented with a beachy theme throughout. The swimming pool is lovely and heated! There is also a table, sofas and a real... More

I have stayed at The Tides a few times over the years. I think it is the one of the best things about Laguna Beach! For me, it is just perfect. The price is right (very important), even though it is a little more expensive than it once was; the new staff are competent and helpful and the place is... More

This small and quaint appearing hotel is on PCH and just a short walk to the main beach and even closer to the tide pools of Laguna Beach. I had the occasion to stay one night for a wedding nearby. I was traveling with family and had 3 rooms reserved. This hotel is very reasonable and has great amenities like... More

We enjoyed our stay at the Tides Inn. Highly recommended. PROS: Very clean and well maintained older inn. Lots of character (which we loved). Very helpful and friendly owners/managers ... we needed a corkscrew for wine, and they had one to us in 2 minutes. The pool area is refreshing and very cute. The location was great ... though not...

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

TidesLagunaBeach, Owner at The Tides Inn, responded to this review

Our rates are locked in when you book. We do have a small pet fee of $25 per day and a large pet fee of $40 per day--only changes with the size of the dog. So sorry if there was a misunderstanding. The birthday special is hard to beat although you do have to stay exactly on your birthday and... More
