We've been to Ocean City many times but this is the first time we stayed at Tidelands. The room was very nice and clean, the staff was courteous and helpful, and it's in a great location on the boardwalk. I'd like to give a special thank you to Sam- he figured out a way to print out our boarding passes... More

We booked an oceanfront suite and saw the back of other hotel no view what so ever. Our room was dirty and two mini refrigerators that were in our room didn't work. The pool was filthy and so small. We went down to the pool bar at 11 p.m. one night after being told that they close at 2 a.m.... More

Where does one begin with this place? You can start with parking, or more accurately the absence of parking. if you call about the numerous bad reviews about the parking, they will lie to you and tell you that there is 1 space for every room. Well, maybe there's some truth to that statement, but what they don't tell you... More

Michael at the front desk was very helpful during my stay. I lost my only pair of car keys in the elevator gap and Michael went through a lot of trouble to get it back for me. My whole family had an enjoyable time.

I originally booked this hotel for four nights for me and my 2 teenagers. The reviews I read didn't seem too bad.. Thank God another option became available and I had cancelled the remaining 3 nights. First of all the parking situation is terrible. There are cars everywhere double parked, people trying to carefully get out of spots. They have... More

Clean & tidy, but not pristine. Old & worn, but not shoddy. For some reason the male staff was very helpful while the females seemed to believe they were doing me a favor letting me breathe the same air as them. Especially the housekeeping supervisor. We had the audacity to ask for more towels & her scowl was epic. The... More

Given the fact that we did chose this because it is near the Boardwalk and close when traveling with children. It is not a safe environment with no key passes on elevators or pool entry, when we were there was a family from an adjoining hotel that had no pool and they kept reminding their children not to tell anyone...

Please do not waste your money here. This dump is rated 91 out of 107 hotels in OCMD for a reason. It's a dump. It deserves a negative rating. I stayed a few years ago and it was a dump, for some reason I gave it another shot because of the great location and I figured it had to improve... More
