At $142.00 a night, on a beach block, it's a great deal. The room was clean, bed was average. The furnishings were a bit dated, the locks were old fashion keys, and staff was friendly, always a smile and a hello as they passed you. Upon check in, the manager pointed out the parking lots, check in was easy and... More

Our family was headed to the beach for 1 night only and didn't want to spend a ton of money. The motel was exactly as described. We were on the ground level near the pool. The pool is small just like most of the other beach hotels. The room was a nice size and had a kitchen. The room was... More

We stayed at the Tides Saturday and Sunday Nights of Memorial Day weekend 2015. This is one of OC's biggest weekends all year and it can be a struggle to find a decent hotel on a budget. The Tides was less than half the cost of some other properties and offered the most bang for our buck. The motel itself... More

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
