We didn't get a chance to find out what the Inn at the Tides was
really like because we didn't get the room we reserved, or the
service we requested. Their website has a box labelled "Guest
Requests", which we filled out with a request for a rollaway bed,
and disabled accomodations. Nothing new or different, and certainly nothing outrageous or impossible to grant. In fact, we have had no trouble in any other hotel, inn, or guest cottage with these simple requests in the past. However, upon checking in, the Innkeeper gave me a receipt for our prepaid reservation, and it did not mention either guest request. So, I inquired if they were really ready for us. I was rudely informed that "This inn does not provide rollaways, and our disabled suite is already occupied." When I asked why this was not mentioned in my emailed confirmation, I was coldly told that
"We don't DO that." He flatly refused to give us an additional room for our third person, so I requested a full refund. After a prolonged
discussion, I was given verbal notice that ..."We have not charged your card as yet, so you are free to leave." So, we did.
We found accomodation elsewhere, at a much friendlier inn, with much less hassle, and much better views, at a lesser cost, too. The Inn at the Tides will never see us in their lobby, again. I would not recommend it to anyone, in spite of the good location, and even better reputation they advertise.
