we found Tides Inn on tripadvisor in June and loved it so much we went back again in August. Lilianna is a gem! The place is spotless, rooms are comfortable and open to a pool and the beach. Just a perfect place!

Lilliana and the rest of the Tides Inn staff are top notch! Walk straight from the room to the beach. They were kind enough to loan us kayaks and bicycles as well! Great Place, Great Town, Great People.

The Tides inn is a very special place to be. The atmosphere is wonderful and very calming. The Tides is kept immaculately clean and constant attention is given to maintaining the gardens and the pool! Really stunning and kind people take the best care. I miss it.

Lilliana and staff were very friendly and accommodating. Perfect location. Loved how the rooms were decorated and how clean it was, even with kids dragging up sand from the beach all day. We'll definitly stay there again.

Upon arrival we were greeted by the manager Liliana. She escorted us to our room and checked over everything to be sure we were satisfied with its preparation. Liliana informed us on the use of the appliances such as the microwave, espresso maker, etc. She also took the time to explain the numerous amenities offered by The Tides Inn. We... More

We really liked the location and the staff of the Tides Inn, but one needs to be aware that this is a motel not a hotel -- yet charges around the same price as a downtown South Beach Hotel. So the reasons I would not rate this higher are value-for-money and the quality of breakfast. Some guests have raved about... More

We are very sorry you didn't enjoy your stay with us as much as we enjoy your visit, this is a Boutique Hotel, not a regular hotel and we have top quality breakfast and service that probably will not be easy to found at any regular hotel... I understand for our conversations that you were looking for a different type... More

My husband and I stayed at this sleek, boutique hotel that is located right on the beach. We were close to everything but more importantly away from the hustle and buslte. It was easy to pick room #7 because its wall of windows that gave us an AMAZING view of the ocean. We could literally walk out of our room... More

Stayed earlier in the year and have just round to doing my review. A good position away from the hurly burly of the fishing pier area. Liliana the Manager was just lovely and very accommodating. Nice pool overlooking the beach. -A few minutes walk to Publix. Although the bed is probably very expensive I found it far too soft and... More

Ileana and her staff go above and beyond and we will highly recommend to our other friends and family while visiting south Florida! Also looking to rent the entire boutique hotel as you are working to make that possible
