My wife and I live in Charleston and we invited our parents to come visit us and they wanted to stay on the ocean. And having stayed in the other two oceanfront hotels in the Charleston area, I knew that the only place I would put me and my relatives at, would be The Tides. The price was slightly high... More

Met by Jay at the front door who helped us with our luggage. Very talkative fellow. The front desk seemed genuinely happy to see us. Check-In was a breeze. People saying Hi and opening doors. This had the feel of a resort. Management has done a good job in their hiring. Saw Jay the next day directing traffic in the... More

Pleasantly surprised by this hotel. Greeted very warmly by the front desk. Suggested dinner at the hotel restaurant which was surprisingly good(Osso bucco was excellen) and there is a new chef and his preparation was very good. Room was as expected-a bit of frayed carpeting but otherwise in good shape for a hotel on the beach. Pleasant, well maintained and... More

We recently had our wedding at Tides Folly Beach and had an, overall, amazing experience. On our wedding day, there was a slight lack of communication and I was not told until the morning of that there was another wedding going on at the same time, which would result in me having to go through the back kitchen (dragging my...

Initial reaction: pretty disappointed. Not a luxury resort. Room was mediocre, no carpet, missing strike plate in bathroom door, ridiculosly loud music on the seaside deck-- we were on the 9th floor, seaside, and it was way too loud. Dinner at the hotel's Blu restaurant: quick seating, quick service, cheese appetizer was delightful, server was very knowledgable. My ossobuco was... More

Was very impressed with Tides upon entering the lobby to check-in. Very well decorated and pretty, they allowed us to check-in early and staff was friendly. We got up to our room and began unpacking some drinks into the fridge when a bad odor of vomit could be clearly identified. The front desk sent up staff to clean the fridge.... More
