“My Laguna Oasis”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 10, 2012

Have stayed here many times over the past decades. I find The Tides' location, friendliness, and room comfort a real reason we return there each time I come back to Laguna. No stuffy air conditioned sterile rooms here. Pool relaxing and advice from staff honest & quite spot on for restaurants, beaches. I grew up in Laguna & won't think of another place to stay.

We got married at the end of Sept and my family and friends occupied 18 of the 20 rooms at the hotel. Judy was so helpful from the start helping us make arrangements. This was a destination wedding so we were not from the area. Judy, Joe and Dale were exceptional! The rooms were clean and the pool area was a great spot to meet up in the morning and hang out at night. There is even a wood burning fireplace at the pool! And whie our party was a large one, the staff was mindful of the other parties staying at the hotel that weekend as well. Our friends gave the place rave reviews! Thanks for helping make great memories at The Tides.

As soon as we saw The Tides Inn - it felt so cozy, comfy and homey. The room was exceptionally well taken care of and so clean.We used our kitchen every day and we didn't need to worry - all the supplies were there. Definitely coming back and want to stay at The Tides again.There was only one thing wrong - we didn't get to stay long enough!!! Dale , Judy and Joe are so friendly, and always available to help. Great job y'all....The Canadians will be back!....with more Maple Syrup too!....don't go anywhere, now!!! Wendy and Marylou

Recently spent four days at the Tides attending a 50's high school reunion from Tokyo, Japan for about 40 classmates. This was our second time at the Tides for our reunion and we could not have picked a better place. The owners, Linda and Dale, and the resident managers, Judy and Joe, were most welcoming and helpful. The Tides has a great pool; and nicely appointed, clean and comfortable rooms. There is also a great area for barbecuing and to just sit back and relax. The Tides is within walking distance of several good restaurants and a short walk to the beach.
Our room was on the second floor and had a refrigerator, coffee maker and a very quite AC unit. Many rooms have small fully equipped kitchenettes and all have large flat screen TV's. If you like small, clean, intimate motels then the Tides is for you!

My husband's high school class from Tokyo had a small "gathering" of about 40 classmates from the late 50's at this inn. Since we occupied most of the rooms, the gathering was very intimate. Our room was comfy, not fancy, but with everything we needed. We were on the first floor with king bed, flat screen TV, AC, kitchenette with micro, small fridge, coffee maker, plates. It was perfect for our needs. We took over the pool area for breakfast and 3 dinners which were deliciously cooked on the barbeque and also in the largest room which had a kitchen. It was only a few blocks to Laguna Beach for shopping and Las Brisas for a fine dinner out. The staff was so friendly and accomodating. We would definitely go back for a weekend. In the summer, Laguna has a Sawdust Festival (art) and a Pageant of the Masters. There is a free shuttle during the summer, so one could stay there and go everywhere...Great find!

Room Tip: Ground floor is easy access. No elevators. Can hear footsteps above. Ear plugs are provided again...

Hello Tokyo gathering. We loved having your group here for a repeat performance. Your entire entourage was so fun....interesting, lovable, fabulous "inside" entertainment in the form of a live hula by one of your Hawaiin natives down fireside/poolside. We so look forward to your next group visit.

Spur of the moment overnight stay at the Tides. Chose hotel based on great TA reviews and rate. Our room was basically a studio apt. First floor with a very comfortable king bed. Small kitchinette with microwave, fridge, toaster, and small sink. Plates, silverware, and even some wine glasses. Flat screen tv with plenty of network and basic cable channels,(did not really watch tv though). Decent sized bathroom with shower only. Think we must have got the last room,special needs room, shower had wall mounted fold up shower bench and two hand held shower heads, fine with us. Staff very friendly and helpful.

Public beach access is less than a five minute walk from hotel. Main beach and town are about a half mile down the road, but not really a long walk either, imo. Pool area quite nice also, after a day at the beach. We did not have any noise issues with being on PCH, rooms closer to the street might, they do provide earplugs. You will hear the footsteps of the guests on the second floor above your room. Overall the hotel was really quiet during our overnight stay. The no vacancy sign was posted, but there were still five parking spaces available behind the hotel.

Wish we could have stayed another night. Will definitely return.

Room Tip: Las Brisas restaurant is a short walk from hotel. Hit the outdoor patio for a cool drink and great...

We stayed for 3 nights over Labor Day weekend (and also my birthday). The rooms were fine, not luxury, but what you needed including fridge. Pool area wa beautiful and the staff were excellent. Loved the birthday offer - we paid the last 2 digits of the year of my birth for my birthday night.
Laguna beach is a great town with a really good atmosphere and a good selection of shops/restaurants/bars, all within walking distance of The Tides. The beach was pretty narrow for all the crowds - we preferred the beach at Newport Balboa Peninsula a few miles up the coast. Overall, a great trip to Laguna beach and really liked The Tides.
