We stayed the weekend, and loved it.. The facility, room and grounds were perfect. Our service was top notch and we will be back. The vie of the Atlantic was great, our balcony was perfect. The lobby service did great as did the staff all over the Tides.

Stayed at Tides for 2 nights with my wife & daughter. The hotel was very nice albeit a little pricey. Check in was easy & the front desk was courteous & friendly. The room was good, it could use some cosmetic work, but clean & functional. The view of the beach is very pretty even though you can't sit on... More

I have stayed here numerous times and have always said you are paying for the location. The hotel itself is nice but the location is the key point. The motel has done some renovations. It was a great place to stay since I was not able to stay for an entire week. Most of the condos require a weeks stay.... More

I visited for 4 nights in mid August 2016. We received a room on the 7th floor. Room had clearly been recently redone. It was fine - except the hotel should not pay the bath fitters outfit that put the vinyl overlays over the tub and shower walls. Terrible (room 740). Floor of tub was squishy with air or water...

I stayed at Tides over the weekend with my wife and 2 of our friends. We stayed in a first floor room which had a nice, larger than expected walk out patio right in front of the ocean. The rooms were perfect size and all we needed amenity-wise. We didn't have to call the front desk for any additional needs... More

Great location near restaurants, shops and bars. Hotel decor is updated and ocean view is amazing. However, I would not recommend this hotel for anyone with special accessibility needs or who is not willing to wait at least 20 minutes for an elevator. There are only 2 elevators, side by side that are not centrally located in the hotel. After... More

We chose this hotel because it is literally right on the beach. The lobby staff were all great. Others such as housekeeping staff you encounter throughout the hotel not so much. The hotel is pet friendly and with that being said, I love a pet friendly location. This hotel however really needs to make some repairs. The whole hotel seems... More

The Tides at Folly Beach may not be a 5 star hotel but it has it all. It's clean, the rooms are spacious, the staff is nice and eager to assist, there's a heated salt water pool, indoor and outdoor dining as well as a coffee shop that serves all of your Starbucks favorites. My favorite part is my entire... More

Tides Folly Beach was fantastic. Great location, great staff, and a fabulous beach front view! Our room was very clean and well decorated and modern. The pool was very clean with plenty of lounge chairs and the bar was always well staffed and easy to get to. Perfect couples vacation spot that we will definitely visit again.
