This is an ideal hotel for anyone looking to stay fairly close to the beaches and nightlife of Laguna Beach without spending huge amounts of money. Our room was very pleasant and a good size and was nicely decorated. It was possible to park for free either right outside or very close by. The pool area was fairly good and... More

Stayed at this hotel for the second year in a row while visiting Pagaent of the Masters. Still love the place. It's a great location, very clean, friendly staff, and loved that our room had a little kitchenette. Loses one star because the room could use a little painting.

I searched for a hotel for about a month before our stay. They were all quite pricey and finally decided on The Tides. What a pleasant surprise! It's a great location right across from the ocean in the center of town. We walked to the pageant it took about 15 minutes. The rooms were very clean and basic but perfect... More

Cannot beat the location. Easy walk to the beach. Pool to cool off in after the walk back to your room. Lobby staff was friendly and helpful. Rooms were a bit on the small side but great for a beach visit in Laguna. We were a party of four and rented two rooms. No pullout options available. Enjoyed the stay... More

All though we only stayed a night based on that stay we would go back and stay longer. Very centrally located in Laguna Beach across the street from Heisler Park ( a very easy walk to get to), lots of restaurants and shopping, trolleys pick up right next to the hotel can take you to all the art festivals, etc....

My girlfriend and I wanted to get away for a couple of days and decided on Laguna Beach.

Friends suggested the Tides in Laguna and I was not sure what to expect. Was told it was an older funky hotel but my friends love it. Was pleasantly surprised.

I booked this hotel after reading all the reviews and was not disappointed. This was a perfect location for the Pageant of the Masters, beach, and Art Festival. The staff was friendly and extremely helpful, loaning beach towels and giving advice on food options nearby. The room (209) was very clean and had a nice balcony with a slight view... More

The rooms were so clean and the personnel were so nice. They helped my semi-handicapped mom get comfortable. The rooms are so beachy comfy. This is the perfect place to stay in Laguna. Parking is easy and access to all areas of Laguna are right there. The air conditioning is wonderful. I highly recommend this place!
