What a gorgeous little hotel in the heart of Laguna Beach. It was our first visit to Laguna Beach and we didn't really know what to expect and where to go, and didn't we pick the most perfect hotel! The manager and manageress were so kind and gave us as much information as we needed and even helped us with... More

We stayed at the Inn for a few days surrounding our oceanside wedding. It sits just a two minute walk from astounding views/beautiful beach. The rooms are quaint, bright, but with a touch of modernity. The staff was extremely informative, hospitable, and laid back. Hang out by the well kept pool area with fire place or venture out to the... More

I just returned home from a three night stay at the Tides. My husband and I got married at the gazebo in Heisler Park on 9/29/14 and were looking for a place for ourselves and our immediate family members to stay (We booked a total of 5 rooms). The Tides offered comfortable rooms with kitchenettes - each with a lovely... More

We stayed here at the beginning of September and really enjoyed our stay. Our room had a kitchenette (with a good sized fridge, microwave plates etc), more than adequate sized bathroom & bedroom. The ground floor room was clean & fresh & right across from the pool. We did manage to find a space for our Yukon XL rental car... More

We stayed for one night at the Tides Inn. The clerk at check-in was very nice and helpful. The motel is located on the n coast highway and just some steps away from the beach and some very nice lagoons at the park. we got a complimentary pair of ear plugs for a noisy night. But it wasn't as loud... More

The Tides Inn is great value in quite an expensive area. The rooms are a really good size (although the bathroom is very small) and very clean. The bed was really comfortable. We had a great nights sleep and didn't find it noisy despite being near the front of the hotel. Wi-fi was available in the rooms, but i found... More

Motels in Laguna Beach tend to be pretty expensive, but the Tides is less expensive than the other places we checked. We were referred to the Tides by the lady at the Visitor Center in town. We wanted a place that was walking distance to the town, and the Tides is only about 1/2 mile from town--but be aware that... More

You called it exactly right. We are affordable and clean--those were our goals! Your review (and thank you so much for writing it) is a stand-out and gets an A+ from all of us for that amazing tip about how to close the blinds. Wow. Linda More

The rooms are nice, the location is great (a block's walk to Heisler Park). However, we had a surprise on the credit card will when we received it. A $200 penalty for smoking in the room (which we did not). I called and asked for help. The desk clerk couldn't do anything and said he'd give a message to the... More

We charged a smoking fee because the room stunk of cigarette smoke and in the bathroom trash can we found many cigarette butts. We are a smoke-free environment and our policy is stated in the room and in the office and on your signed receipt. Linda More

This hotel is clean and pleasant and is on Pacific Coast Highway, up the hill from Laguna Village (across from Las Brisas). My girlfriend and I visited Laguna to attend the pageant of the masters. This location was excellent because after the show the trolley dropped us off right in front of the inn. Our room was decorated in a... More

After seeing all of the positive reviews for The Tides Inn, I was very excited for our stay. That excitement was VERY short-lived. This was my husband and I first overnight stay away from our two small children and the one thing we wanted was a good nights sleep. It seemed like The Tides Inn was dead-set on making that... More
