This was our first visit to Tides Hotel, you could tell that renovations have been made. Clean and comfortable. I look forward to coming back maybe in an off season. Very friendly and helpful staff. Close walking distance to eateries and shopping. Cute laid back little town, 9 miles from Charleston SC. Rooms face ocean.

Keep in mind that this is not a 5- star hotel, but for a beach hotel. It is really very good. My girlfriends and I were doing a weekend and really wanted to be on the beach. It took us a while to find a place that was even beachfront, so we were very nervous about how decent it would... More

Tides Folly Beach was a great place on the beach! We stayed 3 nights. The room looked newly remodeled and was very comfortable. We stayed on the top floor, views were awesome! We prepaid for chairs and umbrella set up for each day and it was awesome to come downstairs and have them waiting for us. Although the beach was... More

This is basically the only place to stay in folly beach unless you rent a house, but it is a great place. The staff is very friendly and helpful and the rooms with beach views are hard to beat. With a restaurant and bar on site, you don't have to leave the property if you don't want to.

I stayed at The Tides many years ago before it was the Tides and it wasn't a very nice hotel. This time around, I found the property comfortable and renovated well to modern standards. All the rooms face the beach and the sunrises from the balconies are unreal. The property has a great restaurant and the staff is helpful and... More

Our three boys love to surf. They don't get to do it that much so they aren't experts. Folly beach is perfect for beginner to intermediate surfers. We had a wonderful experience at Tides. We were there 4th of July weekend but never felt overcrowded. The staff were amazing and the rooms were lean and had a relaxing feel. The... More

Spent 4 days at Tides in June for a girls vacation. Very relaxing time. Relaxed by the pool, took walks on the beach. Staff was very attentive to our every need. Would love to go back some day. Lots of great restaurants in Folly Beach also including Loggerhead's, Black Magic for breakfast and St James Pub to name our favorites.

When we entered our room, I noticed there were marks on the pillow case - turned out to be 3 out of 4 of the pillow cases had makeup swipes across them and 1 actually had black hair on it. Disgusting! The front desk young man didn't seem to be overly bothered by this and said he'd have someone remake... More

The location of this hotel is perfect for a beach vacation and within easy walking distance to restaurants. Every room has an ocean view and a small balcony. The rooms are decent sized and didn't feel crowded. You can tell it is an older building but it has been updated. We were traveling with our two Labs and they were... More
