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 The bathrooms are a little outdated but rooms are very clean.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

I love this place. The rooms large, big full size refri.,had a stove which I didn't use. The maids were helpful and very friendly. The pool was small but it was good for me. I like I could cross the street and catch a bus for $3.00 and ride all day. If staying here ask to stay on the first... More

We stayed at the Tides motel from Fri-Sun a long weekend away! Our room was so clean my husband even commented it was the cleanest hotel bathroom he's ever seen. It was so nice to have a full kitchen with a full size refrigerator we were talking about staying longer next time. The location was so close to the beach... More

Well this is not a 5 star place but it was great for my family. It was clean, it had a small area to cook. We needed a roll away bed and it was at our room before we even got the car parked and a few things carried up. We were within easy walking distance to the beach. The... More
