We booked a last minute stay last weekend and were SO happy with our decision! I was so excited that I could bring my pet, and the staff were GREAT! So helpful and friendly. We will definitely be going back.

The Tides has a beautiful beachfront location with a very large deck, pool, and beach bar. It was very cold when we were there so we didn't use the pool. The hotel is doing an excellent job maintaining and updating an older building. Anything we needed was taken care of quickly. The staff is very friendly and efficient. Lots of... More

This hotel is completely unique in all the right ways. The relaxed, welcoming environment was just what you'd want for your beach getaway and the Bar/Restaurant had local fare with a fun twist. Rooms were spic-n-span with a free bottle of wine to boot, and there's not a bad view in the house. Even with freezing temperatures outside, Tides made... More

Free wifi, right on the beach, pet friendly, great staff + check for special promos to share before you go (I got a free bottle of champagne just for sharing socially about my stay!). It's also perfect walking distance to downtown Folly (where all the restaurants / bars are).

We booked a night at Tides Folly Beach on Valentine's Day weekend last minute so we could only stay Friday night because they were booked. I see why.

We love staying at the Tides. All the rooms are Ocean front and SO relaxing. You can tell it is an old holiday inn, but they have really done a lot to make the place beautiful and relaxing colors for their guest. We will be staying there again soon I hope.
