Tides is an amazing hotel! Upon check in we were greeted warmly in the parking lot, the attendant helped us with our baggage and we were off to check in! The view is amazing from the 9th floor and it is a perfect way to wake up every day! I've read some of the other reviews before booking and my... More

Was there for family wedding on beach, at sunset. Every detail was handled perfectly. The staff, setting, and accommodations were the best. And the ocean at our back door was great, surfing, dog walking, etc. Not to mention your pets are welcome, we brought our dog, but there were cats and other animals there also. Don't miss this gem, not... More

As soon as I walked into the lobby, I knew our stay would be wonderful. It's like a Mad Men set with a bit of beachy decor. The wall and furniture colors are ranges of blue and orange hues, and the staff smile back at you like they were waiting for just your family to arrive. On the back side... More

Pros: Great location Clean rooms Friendly staff Did I mention the location Cons: Housekeeping was lacking. They never completely restocked the room even with us leaving notes. It is still a great hotel and we would not hesitate to come back in the future.

We are currently here for vacation and have never stayed somewhere so filthy. The entire hotel is clean, except the guest rooms, which are gross. Upon check in our room had dirty q tips behind the bathroom door and toe nail clippings all over the carpet. Every day, more toe nails appear. I've asked repeatedly for them to be picked... More

I am disappointed whenever I read a review from our guests, especially in-house guests that did not or are not enjoying their time with us. We would have loved the opportunity to speak with the author of this review during their stay but, unfortunately, countless attempts to contact them and gain access to the room went unanswered. I encourage all... More
