The Tides is a lovely, small property that is clean, very comfortable, and in a great location. We had two rooms and each had a small kitchenette, which is a great touch in pricey Laguna Beach. We would absolutely stay here again.

My wife and I stayed one night mid-week in conjunction with attendance at this year’s “Pageant of the Masters”. Our stay was pleasant. This is a quaint older property, but it is conveniently located, well maintained and has sufficient amenities to attract anyone that wants to stay in central Laguna Beach. Our room did have a few minor issues; peeling... More

Amazingly easy to make a reservation, although they do book up well in advance. There are plenty of rooms, some with kitchens, most with refrigerators. The staff is amazingly friendly, helpful and willing to go above and beyond. There is a heated, salt-water pool with a great log-burning fireplace to sit and enjoy a beverage until 10:00 pm. The rooms... More

Clean cozy room at a great rate. Staff was very pleasant and helpful in regards to dining nearby. Unfortunately our daughter fell ill and we did not get to spend the night. It might get noisy due to close proximity to the street but they did provide complimentary ear plugs. We really enjoyed our time by the pool during the... More

My boyfriend and I stayed at The Tides Inn for one night in Laguna Beach and it was absolutely adorable! The owners definitely pay attention to detail in their property as visualized in the decor of the rooms. The place is in a PERFECT LOCATION; an easy five to ten minute walk to nearby shops, restaurants and even the beach!!... More

I love this little hotel, this is the second time I stayed here for my birthday. I never really hear any noise from PCH, I always request room 208 on the 3 rd floor you can even see the ocean from that room. I love that the owner's have the birthday special it makes it affordable during The Pageant of... More

Be prepared if staying with your pet. There is absolutely no where for them to go to the bathroom. I was advised to cross the busy highway and use Heisler Park. They also charge you by the weight of the dog which did not make sense. Upon check out I made a suggestion that they make a small area on... More

Nice little hotel and nice staff. Convenient to everything. Only downside is that you need earplugs between the traffic on PCH and the loud a/c is loud. Other than that its nice. Don't stay in room 201, way too loud. They ought to price the rooms based on noise level.

The hotel is close to Main Beach and downtown is within walking distance. It's a great location. Everything is superclean and we loved the kitchenette amenities which we weren't expecting. The staff is almost always available with great recommendations. There are two things you need to know 1) it's right on N. Coast Highway which is very very noisy. It's... More
