We stayed here for only 1 night, but it was wonderful. Go in the front door and straight ahead was the ocean. A little patio and the ocean was right there! Listening to the waves was so soothing. It was an old fashioned motel with immaculate, clean rooms. No phone, which is no problem! Only 2 little complaints, the T.V.... More

We are locals stayed her for a quick get-away. Older rooms but tasteful decorated kitchenette we used to save money and enjoyed the peace and rhe smell and sound of the ocean. Short walk to catch the Island Queen for a trip to Martha's Vineyard!

Spent a wonderful long weekend at the Tides. Although it appears vintage from the outside, the room was immaculate and very comfortable. Coffee maker, toaster and microwave allowed us to enjoy breakfast on the balcony overlooking Nantucket Sound. Restaurants, shops and ferry were within walking distance. My wife and I will certainly return to the Tides and would recommend it... More

I booked the tides based on research on the internet, beach location and close to Martha's Vineyard ferries. It really is a no frills motel with no phone, shampoo, AC and the decorating was right out of a 1970's Sears catalogue. Including two matching paintings in the same room. The thing is with the Tides that's part of the charm.... More

My wife and I stayed at the Tides Hotel from 9/2 until 9/8. Overall we had a great time and would recommend the Tides. But there are a couple things to be aware of before you choose to stay here. The Tides is an older motel but is very well maintained. We stayed on the second floor in unit #22.... More

Being from the mid-west where July can be unbearable - we so love spending a week with our friends at The Tides of Falmouth. Mild weather and ocean breezes - doesn't get any better. This year we added two other couples to our group - I think they are hooked!

Every year my husband and I spend a weekend at one of our favorite places - The Tides Motel. The location is just perfect- you are literally on the beach. The rooms are spotless, the view is breathtaking and the staff makes you feel like you are family. I can't wait to go back again next year.

Just back from a stay here. I was lucky enough to run this past Falmouth Road race and decided to make a weekend getaway out of it. The location of this hotel is amazing (right near the finish for runners) it is right between the harbour and the beach so no matter what side of the Motel your room is... More

Just came back from a wonderful stay. The reviews tell it all. We were on the second floor and the view is just as nice. The first floor gives a person the privilege to step right out on the beach. There is no air-conditioning nor telephones in the rooms. No need for A/C since the cross ventilation between the front... More
