We just returned from a quick stay at The Tides Inn. We have been many times before and we absolutely love it. The quiet, beautiful property has been a family favorite for years. The rooms have been recently updated with new linens as well as the lawn area and patio with new furniture. The Inn and the grounds are beautifully... More

We loved every minute of our stay at Tides Inn. From sitting on our balcony, to enjoying morning coffee, to playing croquet on the lawn and swimming in the pool, it was just an unforgettable experience.

Based on their website and other reviews, my family and I were excited about our stay at Tides Inn, however, we were sorely disappointed when we arrived. This was not the resort we were expecting. The property was in need of a lot of TLC. We requested, and received, a return of our deposit and stayed elsewhere.

We stayed at the Tides Inn for 5 days, while our son was in Sailing Camp. The outdoor pool is fantastic, with a beautiful river view. We were able to see part of the Perseid Meteor Shower one evening, as the sky was very clear, with no light pollution to distract from the falling stars. Our only complaint was that... More

We'd been wanting to go for a long time, and loved the location and the beautiful drive there from Northern Virginia. Our room was quite lovely with a balcony overlooking the river. I wanted to bring the bathroom back home. It was so spacious and filled with wonderful toiletries and soft fluffy towels. We were not too impressed with the... More

We stayed at The Tides Inn for a wedding and had a wonderful time. The staff, from front desk, to restaurant staff, to pool and activities staff, to General Manager, are very gracious, kind, and top notch. Additionally, the activities offered are wide ranging and well outfitted. All in all, our weekend was a very pleasurable experience and I would... More

We were so happy to finally arrive at The Tides after hearing about it for so long. Its lovely location right off the Rappahannock was easy to find by boat. Short piers with electric, water and wifi. Dog walk right off pier. Air-conditioned and clean shows/bath/laundry house, which was older and smallish but convenient. The marina itself is small but... More

For years and years I'd heard great things about this property. Maybe my expectations were set too high, but I expected it to be in the Ritz-Carlton category. Not even close. Rooms not bad, but the exterior, hall ways and grounds are lacking and appear neglected. The staff, though, nice are seriously lacking in customer skills. Food was ok...wait staff... More

Quaint area with local restaurants and shops. Beautiful rivers and creeks everywhere! The Tides Inn is in a great location. We have kayaked and done paddle boards; all included in the price. No time limit on usage so it could be difficult to get if busy. Golf, tennis, and bikes are included too! Again, first come first served for all... More

Went here for a surprise birthday party for a relative. The rooms are beautiful with lovely views. The grounds are very nice as well and I stayed in a room overlooking the marina. Make sure you bring extra money, as this is a very expensive place to eat and drink. Reservations strongly recommended for weekend dining at night. My family... More
