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

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

Tides Motel is by far our family's new favorite Ocean City, MD destination having replaced the Executive Motel. Tides Motel has very large rooms. They are very spacious and gorgeous. There are 3 rooms that have their own private balcony too. Always try to book room 111, 211, or 311. We really enjoyed our stay here. Plus, out of the... More

We stayed a week at The Tides in September 2013 for OC/Delmarva Bike Week, We'd read all the posts, and some were really negative, mainly about the staff. Those posts were not true! Devon, the manager, was wonderful, and I mean that. He takes a lot of pride in his motel and he was just friendly, professional, helpful and very... More

We have stayed at the Tides off and on for many years now. Everytime we stay elsewhere in Ocean City, we always wind up saying that we should have just stayed at the Tides. It is not luxurious; if that is what you are looking for this may not be for you. It is, however, clean, a large room with... More

If you want to use the room for just eating and sleeping, while not breaking the bank, this is the place for you. The room was clean and the kitchen had a complete set of dishes and flatware, full size fridge, microwave, 2 burner stove, and coffee pot. No DVD player with the TV, and they charge you a quarter...
