It is right on the boardwalk which makes this hotel tolerable. The staff is very friendly and helpful. There is parking but the lot is kind of tight and small. Won't have to use your car at all because the hotel is close to everything. Furniture is dated but tolerable.

This hotel needs general repairs. The decor isn't horrible but things such as missing towel racks and peeling drywall could be easily remedied. However, our stay was on the heels of Labor Day (guessing repairs and maintenance are done after the high season?) and not an Oceanfront room. The weather happened to be summer-like and the hotel booked up. The... More

We stayed from August 23-26. Let me first start out by saying this. I booked our stay through Priceline.com. Priceline advertised a "direct oceanfront room with 2 king beds." I decided to call the hotel to confirm the room and also to request smoke-free. I was told that they don't have any "direct oceanfront rooms" with 2 king beds, and... More

We checked out, left a bag of dirty clothes in our room. We called as soon as we got home, it took them a day to find them, which was puzzling, but OK. I drove back picked up the cloths. When we emptied the bag at home to do the laundry, someone had gone through our bag and have taken... More

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 The floor is super dirty, the bathroom is outdated, and the most important thing is there was no water the 2nd & 3rd day in both rooms!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
