We stayed one night here for a short get away while on a road trip. We loved this place, get views of the ocean. Staff was wonderful. We arrived a few hours before check in and they were able to get us a room early. Staff was friendly, pool was warm and the bed was comfy. I hope to go... More

I have stayed numerous times at Tides...it's one of my favorite hotels. But I have to say I was a little disappointed this visit to the point where I wondered if there was new management. During past visits the staff was so outgoing, helpful and friendly. This time hardly anyone even acknowledged us, with the exception of Jordan who printed... More

My husband and I stayed at Tides Folly Beach the last week in August, we absolutely loved it! We have been going to other beaches in the Charleston area for the last 15 years,and this is our new favorite place to go. The hotel lobby is beautifully furnished, like something on a magazine cover. The Blu restaurant is first class,... More

I just returned from a three-day conference my company held at The Tides, and I came away quite impressed with the facility and the staff. There was plenty of space in the conference rooms and common areas, all the necessary items worked perfectly (internet access, climate control, lighting, facilities, etc.) and the staff was extremely friendly and helpful. Our entire... More

My wife came here for a few days to just relax. The crowds this time of year are small and the beach is fairly deserted. The folks at the reception desk are cordial and helpful. They managed to get us in a couple hours before check in which was appreciated. The room is decent and the view of the Atlantic... More

Amazing Hotel that allows Dogs... Oceanfront Room was excellent! We thoroughly enjoyed our stay. 7th Floor Room right near elevators and Ice Machine (extremely important). View of the Beach and the Pier was awesome! Everyone was extremely friendly and accommodating.

Stayed here for 2 nights with my best friend who was visiting from Boston. The room was perfect. On the 8th floor, great views of the sunrise, moon rise and shrimp boats. Service, as always, was professional and fun. Had dinner in the restaurant- actually out on the patio, and it was fabulous. Didn't care for the breakfast brunch- not... More

We visited the Tides last week for 5 nights! I love to be able to travel with our dogs and we stayed on the forth floor and had great views! The housekeeping and front desk staff were very friendly. The bellhops keep treats for the dogs and that is a nice touch. For the most part, the rooms were clean,... More

At Tides Folly Beach, we aim for greatness in all aspects and have the necessary standards in place to achieve this goal. Unfortunately, this time, we fell short of our own expectations as well as those of the author of this review. We have some very exciting changes and upgrades in store this winter for the 2015 season and tiling... More

My wife and I got married here this weekend. The experience was amazing. The service was awesome. They treated me and my family with the utmost respect and was beyond helpful in everything from the planning process up to the day of the wedding. I would highly recommend this venue to anyone because the staff will treat you with nothing... More

We had a wedding on Folly Island (10-3-14) and this hotel was ever so gracious to upgrade the Bride & Grooms room and added Champagne for them. Thanks to Matt (Manager). All the staff were helpful and very pleasant. I think they enjoy their work days at such a fab hotel. Thanks again.....Parents of the Groom.
