Looking at the other reviews, I feel a little sad that they seem to be a bit skewed. I also absolutely cannot abide cigarette smoke, but the owner makes a great effort NOT to have moke anywhere near the guest rooms. Meghan is wonderful, accommodating, down-to-earth: nothing fake--what you see is what you get. She knew we had to be... More

The tides inn b&b is a wonderful place! I stayed there with my boyfriend for a weekend getaway and it was everything and more for us! The innkeeper meghan is such a wonderful person who is down to earth and very sweet. Anything you need she would do and we enjoyed talking to her over the wine and cheese in... More

This was the most wonderful experience for my family and I! I would like to comment on some of the people with the negative reviews...you are staying at a bed & breakfast not the holiday inn so of course things will be "older" like the TVs and there will be antiques everywhere which I believe is the charm of a...

I went over to make room reservations, but when I arrived on the front porch, I was hit with the most intense stale cigarette/tobacco smell I've ever experienced -- and I am an ex-smoker. When you can smell a building's cigarette stench OUTSIDE the building, you know it's bad. I hear the owners are lovely, but they really must do... More

The most important thing to know about this inn is that the owner smokes, so the entire inn, bedrooms and all, reek of cigarettes. I was quite upset that it wasn't advertised as a smoking establishment. I now see that there are other reviews that mention this, but unfortunately, I had not seen them ahead of time. Had we not...

We rented the most expensive room $200 with tax. For $200 I expected shampoo, conditioner and at least two bars of soap in the bathroom. The only thing we got was 1 bar of soap and 1 washcloth. I told the InnsKeeper, who is NOT nice at all, that I was vegetarian and was it possible to get a veg.... More

I am sad to give this review of when we stayed in August of 2011. The owners of the Breakers and the Tides Inn are friends --- and if you stay at the Breakers drinks will be served at the Tides Inn. I thought both owners were kind, low key and accomodating. The Breakers is interesting in structure. The owners... More

Not worth the money to stay there. TVs need to be updated. A lot of work to the house. Still need be done. And it's not a made to order breakfast. They make what they wanna make. I made reservations for 125. Check out the charge the 135. It's a bad example of a bed and breakfast place.

I expected so much more from this place after reading the other reviews and was sorely disappointed. The house had a funny smell (wet dog + cookies) and didn't look at all like it received too much TLC (bulbs were missing from the chandelier in the landing, and from our room lights, there was dust everywhere and visible cobwebs). Even... More
