This is our second year. We booked 4 rooms together when we checked in one room was apart from the rest. They apologized with sorry and that's it. Our room smelled like cigarets (we signed paper no smoking in rooms). We complained again sorry no other rooms. But kicker on last day hallway smelled horrible. They said someone left garbage...

We booked a room for four days! We were so excited about our stay until we got there. I paid too much for what we went through. No hot water and apparently this was known prior to our booking. The maintenance men advised that they needed to replace the water heater. Why were we not informed when we checked in?... More

The Tidelands Caribbean was the result of a last minute change in plans and we needed a hotel on the beach within a day, and it was in the middle of the summer! As one might guess, there weren't too many choices. This turned out not to be a bad choice. We had a suite with two king size beds,... More

Our family booked 2 rooms from Fri. 8/15 - Sun. 8/17. The only good thing about this hotel is the size and location. Other than that, everything else sucks! The floor is super dirty, the bathroom is outdated, and the most important thing is there was no water the 2nd & 3rd day in both rooms! I think they purposely... More

If you're looking for the Ritz on the beach, this place isn't it. We found sand on our tile floor but this place is on the beach! But we also found a great view of the ocean with flying kites from our second floor balcony, a bustling boardwalk down below and the ocean on our doorstep. The Tidelands is ground... More

Stayed in this hotel for 4 nights, 2 adults and 2 almost adults. Had plenty of space. Did not spend much time in the room though. In a good spot for the boardwalk parked the car on arrival and never needed it. Next to Hooters, could be a bad or good thing, and the Kite Loft. Hotel staff was friendly... More

Nice location and parking provided. Concerns were about the room upkeep and priority on cleaning. Examples are beer cans left on balcony, floors dirty in corners, and stains in cabinets where dishes and pots are kept. Wife expressed room smell overall was unpleasant.

I have read those other reviews and wondered where they stayed!?!? We only had 2 complaints. The first was the exhaust fan in our bathroom stopped working and there was only 1 elevator. The staff was very friendly! I am certainly staying there next year!!

I stayed here on business to try and get out of staying at the Grand Plaza. I thought it was nice and the customer service was excellent. My room was a little dated but clean, most hotels in the area I've noticed are dated and not so clean. For the cost I would stay here again.

When we checked in, no one was at the desk. Finally after waiting forever, someone came over but she was not helpful at all. After taking one shower, we ran out of hot water. The next day, my husband ran out of water completely in the shower. Both sinks had water tho (they never got warm). It took them 15... More
