We were looking for a quick getaway for our granddaughter's 7th birthday, it had to be near the beach and dog friendly. This was our first time staying at The Tides and I have to say it was outstanding! I can't remember the young man's name that greeted us but he made us feel extremely welcome, like we were returning guests/friends! The location was perfect just minutes walk to two pristine beaches and endless choices for dining out. I nearly forgot to mention that when we got to our room there was a birthday card on the table which I thought was really thoughtful. We will definitely stay at The Tides again.

An adorable, old school beach hotel. So welcoming, accomodating and the staff just so authentically nice. They let us check in early, called us when our room was ready and even wrote us a personalized thank you note for staying there. The location is near everything and private enough to go back to your room to relax. Dishes, glasses, microwave, Keurig, fridge all in the room. We will be back again. ❤️

We stayed a night in the middle of the week and it was memorably pleasant. A very quiet, clean and comfortable(good AC)room just like their website photos clearly show. It appears to be run by a very hospitable family and is family friendly. The Tides are conveniently located close to the center of town and a very short walk to public parks and beaches. Also, wonderful pluses include your own covered parking space and a large heated pool with fireplace and barbecue areas. When in Laguna, we’ll be there and so should you.

We love this spot for a quick and less expensive get away in Laguna. It's walking distance to good surf and beach spots; as well as all of the downtown shops and restaurants of Laguna Beach. The staff was extra accommodating, we just had a lovely time.

Yucaipa, California, United States6 contributions10 helpful votes
the room was dirty especially the floors...I wouldn't let a child on them. The pool is filthy. no amenities to speak of. room wasn't ready until 4 p.m. and still dirty. Toilet didn't work. not a preferred location. I have stayed at 5 places in Laguna...this was like staying in a slum. I will never go there again and for the price it's a disgrace. Many people were unhappy and there was a line wanting their money back. It was just awful.

Dear HorribleMotel, We sincerely apologize for your experience with us. Taking care of our guests is our number one priority and we really tried with you. The way you were berating and treating us in a condescending manner with insults, profanity and pointing fingers in our faces was not right, especially in front of other guests with little children. We wish you peace and love. Thank you.
