We booked room 15 above the office (a suite in South Building and features a kitchenette separate sitting area with huge TV, and king sized bed with a nice tv as well. The location and price are great, our room overlooked the tiki lounge and the beach. The live music is a bit loud, and runs until about 9:30 each... More

We stayed at the riptide two nights pre-cruise. Very convenient location with great views. The place could use some serious updating but none of that matters to me. It was clean but bathroom, shower, kitchenette and living space all show signs of age. If you're used to a chain hotel this is not for you but it was perfect for... More

Stayed at this place for one night prior to a cruise. We wouldn't usually stay somewhere like this but with a family of 5 the other options were $1,000+ per night. My expectations were pretty low even for $500 per night and it delivered on my expectation. Where do I start.... No electricity in the room at all for 6+... More

Like many of the beachfront resorts motels the riptide has been there for quite awhile. It is certainly not a 5 star motel but it is very clean, comfortable beds and a great staff. We just loved sitting on the chairs outside our room and watching the ocean and the people walking along the broadwalk. They also have live music... More

What a great place. My only regret was I was there for business and didn't have my family! I will be back with the whole gang when possible. Super friendly staff. Samantha and Sam (also a Samantha I believe) were excellent. I arrived late due to travel and they called me to let me know I was set and my... More

The room was dirty and there were roaches. According to the staff nothing needs to be done about the roaches as it's normal. Air conditioning was really noisy as well as the tikibar. The only good thing was the location.

The #1 reason we stayed at the Riptide was location location location and it did not disappoint. The rooms, even though they have been updated, they were not done very well but very comfortable and clean. The tiki bar was fun but if you want a quiet place to stay this is not the place. Would I return again? Yes... More
