I'm still in shock as to what happened at the "Tides Motel" no wonder it's been for sale for 5 years. We had stayed for 5 nights when on the 6th day had a friend home from the Navy stop by for about and hour. I went for a walk to the bridge while my Fiance went to the store... More

I thank Kelly and Angie for doing as much as they did in order for our stay to be acceptable. The car traffic on Stickney Point road was very loud, maybe because of the asphalt, so please ask for the rooms further back from the street. We were asked to check the room out prior to our check in which... More

I stayed in the Tides Inn Motel for a whole week and absolutely loved it. The rooms were clean when we arrived and management would clean it everyday we were there. I would really love to come here again.

My friends and I stayed at the Tides Inn in the middle of April. After looking at the previous reviews of the motel, just a few days before we were about to stay at the Tides, we were apprehensive. However, upon arriving at the Tides we found it be absolutely fine. It's your typical motel, somewhat outdated though. NO BUGS.... More

Yes the motel is old! although our room was not that bad we had room 12, considering the price also it was close to the pool where we swam. Exactly 1 week after we got home my daughter broke out in a... More

I would avoid this motel at all cost! My girlfriend her family and myself stayed here. It was a big mistake. The rooms are hit or miss for appliances, floors were filthy, bathrooms had leaking noisy facets, and the worst part about it we were attacked by bed bugs!!! I woke up one morning there and saw spots on the... More

This is a old 50's style ranch motel. Privately owned by a family who works there (they are really nice). It is a cheap place to lay your head 1/3 the cost of any other lodging near the beach. We had room 2. I checked the mattress for bedbugs with no blood spots found on the ticking. No bugs were... More

We stayed in room #9. It had a musty odor, but tolerable for the price. Went home the next day and discovered clustered, itchy bumps on our face, neck, arms, back, and legs. We realized we had bed bugs. It's been a week and a half and we are still extremely uncomfortable. AVOID THIS MOTEL.

Decent cost, close to the beach, and that is about the nicest thing you can say here until management cleans up their act. I spoke to the owner before coming and she assured me that the place was clean: "My mother and I clean the rooms ourselves". So I didn't think twice. The rooms were dirty with bugs all around....
