Nothing too special, but it works for the price. Housekeeping keeps the rooms clean. AC, stovetop, sink, full size fridge, cabinets, etc. Good value overall. I visited during Senior Week, which for us was June 7-14th. We were late finding a place, so I booked us here at the Tides because I've stayed here before. Same as I remember. If... More

This is the only place to stay at on the weekend towards the end of August. It is a gem of a place. It is one very fantastic deal. As long as the price is right towards the end of August, we will keep returning on the weekend at the end of August. The place thing about BEST Motels is... More

This was my first visit at the Tides. Booked this in order to take advantage of OC Hotel week prices, I was happily surprised by this efficiency. The beds, bathroom, and kitchen area were nice and clean upon arrival. We had a week long reservation and the only complaint I could honestly make was the difficulty to open the drawers... More

We love staying at the tides and have came here for atleast the last 5 years. Always clean and staff has always been nice. Close enough to the beach and far away enough from all the noise. Great place to stay with great rates. Near many good restaurants and shops.

Hotel is close to the beach. Under one minute walk. Close to so many stores. Quite a walk from boardwalk. I thought room service was great. No issues. Air conditioner was cold and so was my beer :) Would recommend to everyone.

I stumbled upon the Tides Motel after a harrowing experience in Virginia Beach left us scrambling for a place to stay. The manager, Devon, was friendly, incredibly helpful, and he definitely saved the day and our vacation! We arrived before check-in and Devon greeted us with a welcoming smile. He gave us a parking pass to use until our room... More

Tides is a family oriented motel for the people that want to enjoy their vacations without all of the noise or breaking the bank!! My family and I have been staying at the... More

I booked this Motel at the last minute. I was concerned because I have NEVER stayed in a non-luxury hotel before let alone a MOTEL! I was very surprised at the Tides Motel! The front desk staff was very nice and friendly. We stayed on the 3rd floor July 4th week, which is very busy. We could not get a... More
