Dale who runs the property was extremely accommodating and gave us an upgrade upon our arrival. The room was beachy and artsy and the bed was extremely comfortable. Coffee/Tea machine in the room was a nice touch. 1 minute from Laguna Beach galleries, 5-10 minutes to the heart of town, across the street from the ocean.

My husband and I celebrated our birthday weekend in Laguna and the Tides Inn was highly recommended to us. Our room was absolutely lovely. The bed was so comfortable (and the pillows!), impeccably clean and had everything we needed and more. We could not have been more pleased with every aspect of our stay. We have made our reservation for... More

I stayed two nights at The Tides in Laguna Beach, and it was such a wonderful quaint place to stay. The view was so beautiful especially at sundown. The location was perfect and the attendant at the front desk was so caring wanting to serve my every need. The pool was warm and it had its own sprays across the... More

I have been staying at the Tides Inn for a week now and am very impressed with this lovely, small hotel inn. The staff is extremely welcoming and attentive to both me and my dog. The rooms are a nice size, very clean, they have AC (if you want it), kitchenettes with microwave, coffeemaker and a small refrigerator. Each room... More

My fiance and I just got back from a trip to California and we decided to stay at The Tides in Laguna Beach. We weren't entirely sure what to expect as we hadn't stayed in many motel-style places. We were so pleased when we arrived at The Tides! Dale, the owner, checked us in and was absolutely amazing. He made... More

I stay in Laguna a few times a year. I had been past The Tides many times in the past but had never stayed here. There are several serviceable options in Laguna at reasonable prices and I'll now add The Tides to that list. I got a room with a partial ocean view overlooking the pool with a kitchenette. The...

Stopped here on our first night of a Cali road trip on our way out of the hole that is LA. Perfect location with good access to local shops, bars, restaurant and beach. Aircon was a little noisy, but apart from that, it was a great place to get over the jet lag on our first stop over to San... More

Perfect location - right in the center of town, walking distance to restaurants, beach, etc. The staff was really friendly and helpful. Room was bright and spacious. A bit of traffic noise from the PCH, but manageable. And the price was right.

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

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
