Easy check in, clean room, air conditioner working fine. Only a couple things to be prepared for: parking is limited, I lucked out and found a spot in the off-site lot and woke up early the next day and then found a spot in the hotel lot. My son drove down later and he parked in the pay to parking... More

I will be honest, we did not book this hotel for its 5 star ratings or that we were looking for a really superb hotel. We booked it because we really just needed a place to shower and sleep. The rooms: Although they need to be updated they were clean for a "beachy" hotel. No bed bugs and the beds... More

We really enjoyed our stay at Tidelands. We had a partial ocean view suite. Very large suite which accommodated the five of us rather well. The staff was helpful, friendly and polite. Great location! Both pools were fun---our room was close to the one with the bar. But we used the rooftop too. Housekeeping was very flexible with our schedule.... More

We went to Tidelands after checking in next door to Shoreham Hotel. We saw our room at Shoreham and walked out the door to see a vacancy sign at Tidelands and inquired about a room. They were very accommodating and gave us a discounted rate as they knew we were losing money on our stay next door. They let us... More

We just stayed four nights for about 1,300 dollars and we won't stay another. Ever. In addition to the loudness in the hallways, the hotel was "on the cheap" in every respect: Housekeeping replenished our towels, by not giving us any and taking them all; The coffee barely made 8oz and you only got two; the floor was always sandy...

My family visits Ocean City every summer - for the past 50 years. We usually book a condo, but have stayed at this hotel in past so gave it another try. We were first put into a room that faced the Bay, when I very clearly requested & booked a room with a pool view thru Expedia. Manager on duty,... More

Wow! Thank you for spending the last 50 years in Ocean City, but most importantly thanks for spending a few of these years at Tidelands Caribbean Hotel and Suites. I am sorry to hear about the room mix-up. There are several different ways to book rooms online, such like Expedia, sometimes that can cause a lack of communication. However, that... More

My family and I stayed at this hotel because of how they advertised it, "a Caribbean resort" sadly it was far from it. We didn't have "hot" water to shower with, when we called for towels it took several hours and another phone call to get them and our "kitchenette" was filthy. We were unable to use any of our...

This was our 8th year staying at the Tidelands, and it was pretty good then, but has majorely went down hill since. We told the people at the service desk that out drain in the shower wasn't working, and they put out name on a list and said somebody would be up to fix it. Well, that never did happen.... More

I hope this review is seen by the owner of the Tidelands Caribbean Hotel. I recently stayed in one of the 2 room King Suites with my family. This was one of the worst hotel experiences I have ever had. The front desk staff friendly and tried to help, but the problems we had were beyond what they could fix.... More
