We booked 2 rooms as an overnight stopover whilst driving down the coast. At $200+ per room per night I could be forgiven for thinking it might rise above a basic motel, but it doesn't. The pictures all show the motel's proximity to the beach, of course - what they don't show you is the proximity to the 101, which... More

while the hotel looked quaint and low-key, we had no idea that we would pay $200+ for a room with: 1. no a/c 2. could not close / secure windows 3. the smallest shower ever 4. only 1 functional light 5. right next to the 101 so very noisy 6. paper thin walls and ceiling so no privacy or quiet...

We rented a cottage with two bedrooms. The cottage was very clean and recently compleet refurbished. We were missing some things in our kitchen equipment and we got great service from Justine from the reception who helped us with paper plates and plastic glasses and the next morning we received all the equipment we needed. Great service. When we left,... More

We arrived earlier than normal check in but checked with the desk anyway. They were very helpful! The view was fabulous and the room was very nice and secluded. We had a wonderful time and enjoyed the magnificent view from our porch. The young girl at the front desk suggested a pizza place that delivered and so we didn't even... More

Very nice clean rooms, immediate access to the beach, we loved staying there and will do it again. The prices for their location are unbelievable. We found the service to be above average and the people very friendly and welcoming.

Excellent large room that was extremely clean and had partial sea-views. Coffee machine was great and the bed was very comfy with fresh clean linen. The lady on the front desk was helpful and polite when we checked in, we asked if there was a steakhouse nearby, she recommended Mclintocks, I would highly recommend it the food and atmosphere was...

Review of Tides Oceanview Inn We booked two rooms at this renovated motel during a July 2015 weekend. There is a great deal of variation amongst the rooms so I’d suggest you first look at the room to which you are assigned. We initially were in Room 111 which has an ocean view; however, the king-size bed just barely fits... More

The location is wonderful. Short walk for beach access. Our family of four stayed in an oceanview cottage probably built in the 40's or 50's. It had two bedrooms, kitchen, living room and one small bathroom. Very clean. I thought it was charming. The beds were comfortable and the view was outstanding. We saw both whales and dolphins during our... More

Overall the room was ok. They had just shampooed the carpets and they were not completely dry when we checked in at 4:00.We tried to check in earlier but couldn't because of wet carpets. No air conditioning so it was a lil humid in the room. Only one nightstand had a lamp. No towel racks...No beach access. For what we... More
