4 of 5 stars Reviewed yesterday NEW

Room was big enough for our family of 5. Good kitchenette area. Liked the ocean view balcony. Lacked a decent lobby area and atmosphere. Staff was friendly. Close to the boardwalk. A lot of sand on the tile floor, which was a little off putting.

Used to stay here in the 80s before upgrades. So we booked and this is what we got...reservation was wrong was supposed to have Ocean front, complained and they fixed it without extra charge. Crappy slow elevator, loud hall ways. We were there for senior week, tons of highschool kids we didnt know that at time of booking..ugh..friendly staff, cleaned... More

We have been staying at tidelands for the past 8 years, without any problems. This year we stayed in an upper level suite, we had no hot water (absolutely none) to take a shower, the air conditioner was very noisy and the vents had mold. Finally we were issued a new room on the second floor, after the third night.... More

Great location. Right next to Hooters. Not many workers speak good english so it was hard to communicate with our cleaning lady. Floors are tile so they accumulate a lot of sand which gets all over your feet. Could be more kid friendly, for example, a kiddie pool

I have no clue where the last few reviewers stayed, but it was definitely not the same place as we did: I feel this review needs a disclaimer. I'm a trauma nurse from NYC. I've seen extremely nasty/gross things in my life. I'm super low maintenance and have stayed in some pretty cheap hotels, but this one takes the cake.... More

A great location on the boardwalk! This hotel is an awesome pick if you get a room with a balcony facing the boardwalk and ocean! Otherwise, I wouldn't recommend it due to the obvious age and lax upkeep of the property. The pools are okay. They aren't anything special or very large. Still, I would recommend this hotel to a...

The size of the suite was great. The location is perfect, even with city views. The staff was nothing short of helpful and polite. The rooms could use extra elbow grease and care. Clearly recently painted, the walls were still visibly dirty which skeeved me out a little (hand prints, scuffs, dirt, and the such). The bathroom wall was deteriorating.... More

Just returned from a 4 night stay at the Tidelands with our family of 2 adults and 2 teenagers. Awesome location on the beach and historic boardwalk. Small hotel room with tiny "kitchen" area that includes sink, small fridge, microwave, cook top, coffee pot & toaster. We love eating on the boardwalk so the kitchen served us well for breakfast...
