We just spent 2 nights at the Tides Inn. The view is gorgeous and Eddie the valet and greeter was quite welcoming. The first impression was good but by day 2 we started looking closer. First of all, let me say the rooms are clean and comfortable with a lovely remodeled bath. The bath, however needs some more lighting and... More

Our entire 9-member immediate family came from various parts of the country in order to surprise and to celebrate my wife's "significant" birthday occasion over a 3-day weekend at the Tides. We had a marvelous time and really appreciated the superb assistance the entire staff provided to us and in making the weekend the success that it was.

Smaller properties like the Tides can cater so well to small family gatherings. I see it all the time where our families really feel like they are in their own home and can just concentrate on having fun. Thank you for your review Gordon Slatford General Manager More

Always a pleasure to enjoy the Tides Inn at any time of the year. From the time you enter to the time of departure you feel pampered and welcome. This was a 2 day trip for my husband and me to relax and we found the perfect spot. Lovely rooms, breakfast in bed and quiet time outside on the patio... More

Welcome back and we appreciate the review you have provided our guests. It is so nice that Spring has finally arrived and I see we have abundant numbers of Osprey nesting on the creek this year. Best regards Gordon Slatford General Manager More

We had a surprise reunion at the Tides last weekend to celebrate my uncle's 80th birthday. The facility is beautiful and food delicious. It was horrid weather the entire time we were there - COLD and rainy. However, we were still charged the $25 resort fee - without ever using whatever facilities they have. I am trying to get this...

We have now made friends but it emphasized that it is a really good idea to book direct , when booking direct we can call you a few days before arrival, arrange spa appointments or just make sure your room is just the way you want it to be. When booking with a third party we often do not have... More

If you came at Christmas you will also love the Summer when the property evolves into a more al fresco experience, breakfast on the terrace, sunbathing on the beach and if you bring children maybe crabbing from the docks. We appreciate your review. Gordon Slatford. General Manager More

We are native Virginians, retired, and had never been to the Tides before this weekend. Have heard good things about it for years. We were on an exploratory trip of the area and decided to have lunch at the Tides. The views are spectacular, no doubt, and the outside restaurant / deck area is lovely. The food was average at...

We have to accept your comment on the she crab soup. It should be thick creamy and decadent. Your observation on the day was correct and we had to remake the soup for the rest of the day. Of course I would love you to try the correct product so if you were to make yourself known to me you... More

The "Tides" is one of a kind. It is not alone in that accolade, as there are many one of a kind resorts, and this certainly ranks as high as any in that category. The setting gets you off to a good start, and then the food and amenities. The view is one we never tire of and feel so... More

My family visited for a few days in the fall. The property is showing its age -- wallpaper peeling in the halls, loose shutters in the room, amateur patch job on the window sill, and cracked sink at the vanity. The cleanliness of the room was mostly good, but we did notice finger and nose prints on the window (assuming... More

A long weekend with a great friend at The Tides Inn was incredibly relaxing and enjoyable. The main building and restaurant/patio/bar is well done and up to date. The hotel/inn needs some updating (especially for the price) but suited our needs. Bikes, kayaking and paddleboarding were wonderful and the Inn is convenient to a number of vineyards/wineries and quaint local... More

On a lush peninsula in Virginia's historic Northern Neck, the waterfront Tides Inn has welcomed generations of friends and families who cherish the relaxed pace of local life and the Southern hospitality of our staff. Guests can learn to sail at the on-site sailing school or explore the calm waterways via paddle boards, kayaks and canoes while frequently spotting bald eagles, osprey and herons. The 18-hole Golden Eagle golf course is a pleasantly challenging wooded course with water hazards, and there is also a Par-3 course, tennis, croquet, and spa, plus bicycles for pedaling into town. Our farm-to-table cuisine highlights oysters from the nearby Rappahannock River, and we're located on the Chesapeake Bay Wine Trail with several Virginia wineries nearby. ... more   less
