Writing this from my room at The Tides. The ocean view is excellent and the staff will afford you superior service. We were treated with exceptional service from Jay and Bryan with the parking service. Adequate parking is a big deal in Folly, so they have someone greet you at the entrance to the parking lot. On the down side,... More

We paid around $300 a night which was for beach access and prime time summer. If in the middle of the state this is a $79 hotel. While Jay the Manager was beyond friendly we stayed 6 nights and only got the room cleaned one time. There was a gas line break, flooding, road work and today we were told... More

The hotel staff was helpful and very friendly. The room was clean, spacious and had a wonderful view of the ocean. They don't have enough chairs or shade at the pool, and they kept running out of towels, but other than that we had a lovely time. Be prepared to bring beach chairs/umbrella or pay $30 for 2 chairs and... More

The Tides at Folly Beach is a great location if you are staying there! The staff is very friendly and helpful! The rooms are average and expensive, but you are paying for location. They have two pools which is very nice and the hotel is right on the beach. The hotel is also located right in the main street of... More

We stayed here two nights following a visit to Charleston. Very nice room with sweeping views of the sea and an irresistible seafront bar. The restaurant was OK but perhaps not quite what we expected at that price level.

I will start out by saying that I understand that in this type of hotel, you are partially paying for the location and view. You can't beat the location of this hotel for easy beach access. We booked our room as a last minute get away and the only option left was the priciest of rooms, which was a first... More

Nice hotel right that is right on the water and centrally located in FB. Good restaurants all within walking distance and a nice beach. The hotel was very family friendly. The rooms were clean and the staff were friendly and accommodating. I would recommend and stay there again.
