What's not to like here!? Ocean Front! Slap in the Middle of Folly! Great service and good beachside dining! This is a convenient spot for all that Folly offers! Enjoy the pool, or the ocean. Excellent coffee shop! All in the Heart of Folly!

We paid for an ocean front room. When we checked in they put us in a room with only a partial ocean view (obstructed by balconies that jutted out from the hotel at an angle). So, we complained about that. We were moved to a room that was ocean facing. Our hotel room was left not only unlocked but the... More

We stayed at the Tides for four days in January. We really enjoy having an oceanfront room(all rooms are). All the staff were friendly, and the room was comfortable and clean. The Blu is a good restaurant, and you are in walking distance of several others in the Folly Beach area.

We stayed 3 nights in January and had a wonderful time! Our room was clean and comfortable and the service was excellent in every way. Everyone at the front desk was dedicated to giving great customer support. Rather than being chased from the lobby, our dogs were welcomed, and Jay was always friendly to them and to us. The ocean...

This was our second stay at Tides. The staff is always very friendly and helpful. Great live music in the bar on weekend nights as well as afternoons by the outdoor bar. The view from our 8th floor room was awesome.

Stayed at the Tides for Taste of Folly. As usual everything about our stay was great. Jay , the always smiling bellman, greeted us and even remembered our names! The room we were given was outstanding and even came with a bottle of champagne. Everything about the Tides, from check in to check out is first class. Yes the hotel... More

Stayed here for the weekend at end of JAN with my wife. Had stayed here 2 or 3 times over the past few years - never rated them. Nice lobby area. Rooms average. Nice indoor and outdoor bar area at the adjoining Blu restaurant. Friendly staff.

I stayed at the Tides over the Holidays. I love this Hotel! It is convenient, comfortable, casual and clean. The Tides is oceanfront with gorgeous views from all rooms. I love the fact that it is within walking distance of the quaint town of Folly Beach and the Fishing Pier. Plenty of free parking is a plus for the guests.... More

Staying at Tides on Folly Beach was the best decision I made for my mini vacation. The staff was amazing, the location was perfect and the ocean view topped it all off. I will definitely be staying again
