We visited in October, so prices were great. However, I found the 2 room suite we stayed in to be disgusting. It was outdated and not very clean. the whole building had a gross smell. There were marks on the wall, including grease stains from someone who had cooked in the room. I appreciated the cheap price, but not what...

Only to find that most hotels had raised their prices since it was Sunfest weekend. We came upon Tidelands who kept their rates the same and gave us a suite that was very clean and spacious. We...

My wife and I stayed here and was blown away at the size of the room, two separate bed areas, perfect for a family or two couples looking to spend time together and still have a little privacy. The staff was nice, and location was perfect, literally a 2 minute walk to the beach. My only complaint is that the...
