We checked into the hotel for a one night stay. After checking out the next morning and driving the six hours home, we unpacked and realized our tablet was not in our luggage. I remembered leaving it on the desk on the room. I called the hotel at 5:30 p.m., and was told the general manager, Jeff Pavone, was gone... More

For position and outlook, this hotel is first class. Right on the beach, and central to all that Folly Beach has to offer. The main lobby, pool, coffee house and bar are all in great condition. We did not eat there, but did sit at the bar. All rooms that we could see were entered from outside corridors. Ice machines... More

I have never seen a more hospitable and friendly staff than at this hotel. Every single employee that we encountered was friendly and helpful. The lobby, pool area, and guest rooms are beautifully decorated and comfortable. All of the rooms are oceanfront with spectacular views of the beach and pier. We enjoyed our visit and would definitely stay at this... More

We celebrated our 40th anniversary the weekend of Mar 6-8. Folly Beach or the Edge of America, is one of our favorite local places to visit. Folly has great things to do and they're all within walking distance to the Tides. Our room was on the 9th floor and was comfortable and very clean. We had a microwave, mini fridge,... More

Nice staff. Great price during off season. No worries as always on Folly. We stay every few months on off days and seasons to get out of downtown. Always a good staff and price. last time we went pool was under construction.....It was also 50 degrees outside so not an issue. Looking forward to seeing results next visit.

I hesitate to share because I don't want it to get so busy that I can't get a reservation next time I want to come! A lovely location, nice beachside patio bar where you can dine with your dogs. Hotel is located next to the fishing pier. Watch the sunrise from your balcony. Only thing missing is a hot tub... More

The Tides is the only hotel one should consider when vacationing in Folly Beach. The hotel was clean, modern, and aesthetically pleasing, and the staff was courteous and helpful. Despite arriving several hours before check-in, the front desk staff were able to get a room ready for me early and were very gracious about it. Also, the maintenance staff is... More

We visited South Carolina from the UK and chose Tides on the internet due to it's views right over the ocean and the proximity to Charleston and other places of interest. We stayed for 7 nights and were very happy staying there. The hotel is a perfect place to holiday, being relaxed and very friendly but also very well ran... More

The location is perfect, right on the beach! Our room was clean and the staff was excellent. They were more than willing to help with every request we had. We were here celebrating our anniversary, and we told someone on the staff, they had a bottle of champagne delivered to our room. A great personal touch to customer service!

We always enjoy ourselves when we stay at Tides. Right in the middle of all the action at Folly Beach and an easy drive to downtown Charleston! The staff at the hotel are always super friendly and helpful. The ocean front rooms have great views. It is a great place to stay!
