We got married in Laguna, and reserved the Tides for our out-of-town guests. All of our guests could not say enough wonderful things about the hotel, the owners, and their ability to make all of us feel like we were family. We booked the last weekend in March, and the weather was perfect. The owners allowed us to use their pool area to host a get-together, and repeatedly went above and beyond to accommodate us in every way. If you are in need of a safe, cute, clean and welcoming place to host those you love the most, please consider the Tides Inn.

Thanks so much for sharing your comments.

The hotel staff were superbly helpful and they even had beach chairs, towels, and an umbrella for us to borrow for the beach. Since our flight wasn't until late in the day, after check out, They were kind enough to let us park there after check out while we enjoyed the beach and tidepools. We loved that the Hotel is conveniently located across the the street from Heisler Park and the beach, and close to, but away from, the downtown area.

Room Tip: With windows open we could hear street noise, but with them closed it wasn't a problem.

Very friendly, nice little pool, close to beach. But some rooms are right on the road, traffic noise not good! If you are staying for a few days then make sure you get a room at the back. The location is great for beach, bars and restaurants.

We also love our location. We love not charging to park your car also. We do have 3 rooms on the street side of our property and always make a point to let our guests know that when they make their reservations. There is traffic noise on Coast Highway-no doubt about it-and all the hotels are on the coast. We do have double-paned windows which helps.
Thanks so much for your good traveler advice. Hoping to see you again soon.

Nothing really much to add to all of the other reviews. The owners are very nice, the road noise is not really an issue but the walls are a little thin. The rooms are clean and they provide you with a nice beach towel for your excursions there. Good pool area and plenty of parking. The place is larger then it appears from the outside along the PCH. It is also an easy walk to town and close to several beaches. Has to be the best place to stay in Laguna Beach for the money. I would return.

Myself and 3 friends stayed at The Tides last night for our annual friends retreat. The staff couldn't be more friendly. Parking was free and they are within walking distance of a few shops, galleries, Starbucks and Main Beach. Our room was very nice but small with 2 queen beds. The shower was tiny but lots of water pressure and hot water. The room had a coffee maker and a small fridge. The sheets were great if you care about that. The staff set up a fire in the fireplace in the beautiful pool area we could light after dinner. There is comfy furniture to enjoy the fire and sound of the pool fountain. Free wifi. I didn't give a 5 star rating because there is always room for improvement and there is street noise. They do have earplugs in the room in case you need them. Thanks for a great stay. I would come back.

The owners are the nicest people. The location was great. Right across the street from Heisler park which is perfect for strolling along the beautiful paths overlooking the ocean and main beach. The room was older, which was fine but I found the bed to be "springy" which caught me off guard. It made me miss my own bed a little. All in all it was a really nice stay at one of our favorite beaches.

Thank you so much for the review. We receive so many compliments about our comfortable beds, so we will check out "springy" and resolve that problem. Thanks for letting us know. We do love our place and our location as well. On behalf of our staff and management, we look forward to your return visit.

Last week we returned from a week's stay at the Tides. We don't usually stay in one place for this long, but loved it so much, we wished we had several more days! It was our first trip to SoCal, and Laguna Beach was the perfect spot from which to explore, anywhere from Los Angeles to San Diego. The Tides was also the perfect spot in LB. You are within easy walking distance (a bit hilly) of downtown and its restaurants, breathtaking Heisler Park (beaches!!), a good grocery store, the art museum and many galleries. The Inn itself is charming, the owners fun, helpful and welcoming. While it was too cool to use the pool, we spent time in the sun there, protected from the breeze. If we had wanted it, a stone fireplace was ready to use, as was an outdoor barbecue and refrigerator. We were in lovely Room 204, which is bright and open, with a full kitchen. Yes, the noise of the PCH was there, but the complimentary earplugs took care of it nicely, not to mention the best hotel bed I've ever slept in. Parking is tight, but sufficient.

We fell in love with Laguna Beach and will definitely return. We will again make The Tides Inn our home away from home. Thanks, Dale, Linda, Judy and Joe, for all of your recommendations and guidance.

Thank you for the lovely review. Very happy to hear you will be visiting Laguna Beach again. You must come back in the summer when our fabulous art festivals happen. We also have the best restaurants. We and The Tides are looking forward to your next visit--soon we hope--to your home away from home.
