This place is a jewel. We spent 3 nights and loved every minute of it. The staff are friendly and the rooms spotless. Everything you need is right there. Beach is right out your door and you can easily walk to the Pier. I'll come here from now on. Thanks to the staff and the resort my vacation was perfect!!!

Just got back home from our stay at the Tides Inn. The top notch accommodations and management made our vacation very enjoyable. The friendly atmosphere made all the hotel guests enjoy themselves which makes for a very pleasant stay. This makes the Tides Inn even more attractive.

We had a fabulously relaxing stay and as we were dreaming of... More
