Visited Tides this Memorial Day weekend as a spur of the moment trip. From the moment we were greeted in the parking lot by Richie to checking in with Miss Champagne we knew we were in for a great weekend! And great it was! Cannot wait to go back soon. Thanks to Miss Champagne for her southern hospitality! Ms B.... More

I was there the week of Thanksgiving, 2014. This hotel is right on the beach and the views are great. All personnel were extremely helpful. The rooms were spacious and very clean. There are small balconies for each room. I would recommend this hotel. This was a combination business and pleasure trip.

The hotel itself was very good and the location couldn't have been better. However, the elevators were very slow and the door to our room wouldn't open most of the time, making a trip to the lobby a necessity. We had dogs with us which were very welcome but the maid didn't come to do the room until the dogs... More

If we had not booked thru a discount website, we might have had a better room. Ours was the last room on the end of the "hall" and there was a concrete column that blocked half the entry so we squeezed in every time we entered. We were right over the HVAC units so it was noisy all the time.... More

We loved the location of the Tides! The decor was incredibly done in the lobby and restaurant. Had breakfast at Blu and no complaints.... Very tasty. The bedrooms were somewhat small but the beds were very comfortable. Small balcony overlooking ocean very nice. Only annoyances were bathroom door difficult to close and toilet handle had to be held down every... More

This was our second stay at Tides Folly Beach. Last year we stayed at the Tides Folly Beach Hotel as a less expensive hotel option for our visit to Charleston which was within a 15-20 minute drive. Spent our days in Charleston and nights at Folly Beach. We enjoyed the hotel and the Folly Beach "village" so much last year,... More

The glory of Folly Beach is it’s funky 70’s style and the Tides fit right in. Don’t get me wrong. I mean Funky in the most complimentary sense. The rooms are a bit dated and have not been redecorated recently but they are clean and ac works great. I think all the rooms are beach front. The best part is... More

Unfortunately I am staying here right now. This place is FILTHY FILTHY FILTHY. Literally looks like it hasn't been cleaned since it opened. I literally stood in ankle deep water taking a shower since the drain appears to be plugged. The staff is very nice but it Ends there. Currently looking for somewhere to stay the rest of our time...
