While the rooms are small, this place is a first class experience in terms of service, the restaurant, the beach access and location. The house is so nice that it expands your living space. We absolutely plan on coming back and i recommend the lobster raviolo and the swordfish wrap.

Superbly located along the beach. Ample parking for hotel guests. Beach is not crowded at all. Breakfast is included and excellent. Lots of Gluten free options. GF bread and buns available. Lunch I the beach was fast and delicious. Rooms are solid- what you'd expect from an inn.

If you love the beach, great food and great service... This is ur spot. Very relaxed, yet high level of comfort, food, service. Beach is right across the street. Many comfy private nooks on the property to curl up with a good book or a cold cocktail. Highly recommend!!

Truly disappointed. We booked to stay an entire week .... (costing us a fortune) ... when had to change plans due to mother-in-laws illness. Still nearby, just not at the Tides. They would only refund what they could resell since it was less than 30 days prior (it was 2 1/2 weeks out). Supposedly, they were only able to sell... More

Dear Amy P: Your comments on TripAdvisor are extremely disappointing to read – particularly the title – which I take offense to. The Tides Beach Club has been in business since 2011 and we have built a loyal customer base and strong reputation as a result of the high level of guest service that we provide. It is unsettling to... More

We stayed at the Tides Beach Club for two nights at the end of June. It was great! It's a wonderful combination of a quiet, out-of-the-way setting and a lively atmosphere.

The quintessential on the coast of Maine with a sandy beach experience. Just plain lovely. The sandy beach right across the street, 10 steps away, has the softest sand, people to set up your chairs and umbrellas provided by the inn, and a lovely beach to walk.
