Just enjoyed another stay at The Tides Inn at Shelter Cove. We drive 5 1/2 hours to get there just because we love it SO much. Only place we know of in CA where you can actually stay right on the ocean and hear the surf day and night, and not have to pay the 3 to $600 you'd have... More

First, I must preface that it has been close to two years since I visited. Normally, I would decline the delayed request to review the property, but as it was so striking and impactful, all of the details are still fresh. Refined. Peaceful. Overwhelming in the natural bounty. The Inn reflects the environment - well maintained and homely without being... More

My husband and I stayed at the Tides Inn and loved it! It's an hour drive west from 101 but well worth the drive. We only stayed one night but wish our stay was longer. Shelter cove is a quiet little town with one restaurant and no gas stations so I would suggest making sure you have fuel and food... More

We stayed at the Tides & want to recommend it to everyone traveling to Shelter Cove. The hotel is wonderful: clean, very comfortable with an ocean view. A place to relax & get away from the world!!! We WILL be back for a much longer stay!!!! Thank you Bill!

This is a place to turn everything off and relax, starting with the beautiful drive up 101. We had WIFI coverage but no cell phone reception (ATT). We had room #6 ($165 in mid-July) and set up our table on the walkway in front of the room... all the rooms here have great ocean views with rocks, tide pools, a... More

We stayed two nights at the Tides Inn and only wish we could have stayed longer! The rooms were spotless and the bed so comfortable! Sat on our balcony watching the ocean and at night fell asleep to the sound of the crashing waves! Bill and Julia were the perfect hosts! We rented a unit with a kitchen so we... More

We finished the Lost Coast Trail a night early and just wanted a nice place to shower, watch the sunset and sleep. They were so nice and helpful. Several other places treated us like a nuisance for asking about an available room. The couple at Tides were great and even gave us a lovely discount because we were happy to... More

This was our second visit to The Tides Inn & it was just as amazing as our prior one! Shelter Cove is like no other town on the California coast. It is relatively untouched. Yes, it is remote, but that is one of the biggest factors for returning for a long weekend in this piece of heaven. In a world... More

The Tides Inn was spacious, clean and had everything required for a comfortable stay. The full kitchen allowed us to prepare meals at the Inn. We didn't leave the Cove the whole time we were there...nor did we want to! Our favorite activity was beach combing and exploring tide pools, which was easy to do since we were just a... More

Only the best of establishments could find its way into the poetry of Shakespeare's Julius Caesar. My affair was simply the recognition and appreciation of the serene beauty of the location. All of the rooms were extremely clean and well-appointed, and the management welcomed me with quiet efficiency and sincere warmth, but it is the view that dazzles the eye... More
