As mentioned there are several endearing qualities at The Tides. I like a smaller quaint properties with character. It was clean and comfortable. The towels were nice quality. The sheets could use an upgrade. But the biggest issue was the traffic noise and location right on PCH. We like open windows and we were tucked in the corner on the upper floor. The traffic noise is loud and non-stop to the point of constant irritation.

Great hospitality and very clean and comfortable lodging. We like to walk and this place afforded us great places to walk to see the theater and the beautiful coastline. We enjoyed our visit very much.

We've stayed in Laguna Beach many times, but this is our first at The Tides. It's an older property, but super clean and sweet. The location is GREAT (right across the street from Heisler Park/beach) - an easy walk to everything downtown, and walkable for most to the Festival of Arts/Pageant of the Masters. There is a little nighttime traffic noise, but this is true of every hotel/motel in the downtown area. Nice little pool area, too. We'll definitely return. P.S. I was able to take advantage of a birthday discount as we were staying 2 nights, one of which was on my birthday. Very nice surprise!

Walking distance to beach, restaurants, shops, Pageant. Very accommodating. Free parking. Nice pool area. Room was cute and a good size--had microwave, refrigerator, AC. Close to the street, so they provided ear plugs, but I didn't need them. Very happy with it. A+

My boyfriend picked this hotel for our 2 night getaway this past week in Laguna Beach and I can't rave enough about our time here. Anderson, who answers the phone in a way that makes me think he never leaves work, was incredibly helpful, friendly and patient. I asked for a table so I could do some work while there. He provided it. I asked for an upstairs room. He made it happen. I asked for a refrigerator, and Anderson made sure our room had one. He answered all of my questions. Just made it all EASY. The room was lovely, nice decorations, windows with cool air coming in, room was clean, pleasant, the beds and pillows, for me, wonderful. Bottles of water provided. Fresh fruit available in the office. Parking easy. My ONLY complaint: The shower head could be more adjustable than it is, which would help short folks like myself. But otherwise a perfect room, a wonderful hotel. It's also a great location. Walk a short distance to get to the tide pools (of more interest to me than the beaches (which were very crowded)... try Fisherman's Cove at low tide. Down the street one is Urth Cafe... the long line didn't easily distinguish take out from eat in when we were there, which was frustrating. Got a wonderful take out dinner from Reunion, which is down the street... veggie burger and turkey club sandwich. We took our dinner down Myrtle Street and sat on the grass watching a glorious sunset. We were serenaded there --a wonderful surprise) by guitar player Kaveh Zarei (you can google him). I would stay at The Tides again absolutely and recommend it highly. THANK YOU ANDERSON! (hotel owners: give him a raise!!) I will add the Orange County is not requiring masks so, for cautious masked folks from LA we were a bit shocked at how many people were unmasked everywhere we went. Anderson wore a mask in the office, which I greatly appreciated greatly. In terms of noise... our room backed onto an alley, so there was occasional noise there, but nothing that was a problem at all.

Room Tip: I always like to be upstairs so no one is making noise above me, but not everyone feels that way.
