We recently stayed at Tides to celebrate our 30th wedding anniversary with our 2 adult children. The location is awesome, right on the beach. Walking distance to many different restaurants/bars. We were able to rent chairs & umbrellas there which was a plus. Hotel itself is nice, but seems to be used hard obviously because it's at the beach. Room... More

I thought it a little over priced for what you got but was satisfied. I got in Charleston after a long drive from Cincinnati and forgot to turn out my car lights. When I went out the next day my car would not start. Sean the maintenance guy went above and beyond to help me out. It was more then... More

The location is beachside and every room has a great view BUT coffeemaker didn't work so we we asked for another, I put a note "broken" on it for the maid. The next morning we discovered it was replaced sometime but the "broken" note was still on it so we didn't realize it was fixed until leaving. A major thing... More

We wanted to visit Charleston and take in some beach time close by. From the write ups we decided to book our stay at theTides. The hotel is easy to find from downtown Charleston, has free parking, easy to walk to restaurants, and has a large beach area. The staff is very friendly, true southern hospitality!

We checked in and got a top floor room. You can't sit on the balcony - it's too narrow, but all rooms are ocean side, the staff are super nice and helpful. I don't think I got the best value for my buck, but the room is clean and the view is superb. The staff will ask if you are... More

We stayed here twice recently to bookend a wedding in the Charleston proper. The views are out over the nice hotel pool and bar to the ocean and pier. During the day it can be bit noisy. Many guests had well behaved dogs and places with outdoor seating allow them as well. The staff were very friendly and the vibe... More

This is now my third time staying at the Tides hotel in Folly Beach. They definitely need to update parts of the hotel and give some of the rooms some TLC. There is rust in a few places. However, all that can be overlooked with the beautiful views and the helpful staff.

Love love this hotel. Stayed here for second year in a row and we love it. Pet friendly so our spoiled golden can go with us. This town is very pet friendly. The Blu restuarant is phenomenol. A great location, near Charleston and able to get there in about 20 minutes from Folly. Can't wait to go back.

This is about our 5th stay at Tides. We always have a nice time when staying there. It is pet friendly and that is a plus. If you stay there and have a need or question speak to Jay. Jay is knowledgable, resourceful and a true good will ambassador for the Tides. We will be back.
