The Tides Motel is well situated, with a courteous, thorough staff, that was friendly and accommodating. The rooms are larger than typical rooms, and there was ample parking whatever the hour. It is reasonably priced, and will give your comfortable accommodations near great shops and eateries, all without taxing your wallet. Yes, it's a budget motel, but that is not... More

We stayed at the tides motel. Thursday July 28 through Sunday the 31st. I have never stayed here before but had stayed at the beach mark motel in the past which is their sister hotel. I have to say I couldn't understand all the bad reviews. It isn't an expensive place so I don't know what someone would expect. The... More

My wife and I stayed here for three nights in Mid July when we decided to stay further down the beach and avoid the boardwalk for a change. Immediately upon entering our room we noticed a musty smell that never went away for 3 days. We discovered part of the reason for it that evening when I took a blanket... More

Normally I never do this. But I felt that everybody needed to know that this is by far the worst place to ever stay at for a vacation. I have never been treated so rudely by anybody anywhere I have ever went. I asked a simple question about an email and was pretty much treated like an idiot. The rooms... More

Dirty, fighting all night in the parking lot, people peeing in the street, foul language in the parking lot, slamming doors all night long. Kids everywhere, i will never stay there again. Went in the off season and expected it to be quiet, NOT! I would not reccommend to anyone, what a DUMP.

Very nice motel for basic accommodations. The bathrooms are a little outdated but rooms are very clean. An excellent value and great centralized location. Just steps from the beach. The staff was very friendly and helpful! I would definitely stay here again.

The place is a little out dated but they have made several upgrades over the years (Such as TV's and beds). It isn't a real frills place but I think it is one of the best values in OC. The rooms are clean, there is access to the beach just steps away, and the staff was very friendly. There is... More
