The pier next door was closed for maintenance. But it is off season.

The property was right on the beach!! Loved it!! Needs some updating but I was told they are starting renovations! Staff was so accommodating! I’m going back. Just when it’s warmer !!

Oceanfront rooms with a small balcony make this a nice place to stay. The room was adequate but dated. Balcony not big enough to put a chair, but nice to leave the sliding doors open and hear the waves. Attached restaurant offered inside/outside seating. Menu very basic.

Staff was great, even found a microwave for our room because we needed on. We did have a slight issue with mosquitoes in our room but it is the south. I felt the hotel was priced to high with an amenities fee. I’m not sure what extra I was paying for, beach service, restaurants, valet service where all pay as you go. That all being said, the staff was great, beach front and convenience to everything was a plus, but with pricing I will probably choose another option for our next visit. Amenities

Staying at Tides overall was good. The staff was friendly. Stayed in better beachfront accommodations that cost alot less and without resort fees.

The staff was extremely welcoming and helpful.

Great Location; Nice staff; Needs work This hotel is located in the center of a great little beach town. The staff were great. The hotel's bar and restaurant had good food and was reasonably priced. The hotel itself needs work. A HVAC unit on top of the lobby area sounded like a propeller plane about to take off. The staff moved us to a quieter room. The ice machines were all out of order. We were told they are expecting new ones. The water pressure in our second room was low and there was not enough water to take a shower on the day of our departure. That said, we plan to return. Just hope they fix some of their mechanical issues in the meantime.

Beautiful spot to be! Nice staff, updated rooms, restaurants nearby, and next to the pier.

It’s okay

This was the first trip I have made with my dogs. It was such a nice and relaxing weekend. Everyone around was very friendly. Lots to do within walking distance.

Beautiful view but building is falling apart. Needs a full renovation.

Asked for a room on a high floor, months in advance, upon arrival, I was told the room they had planned to give me had a leak and the bed mattress was wet, and they didnt have time to fix it, so they put me on the 1st floor next to the loud and noisy pool, for 5 nights. This was my only vacation all year, bummed.

The location is perfect. You literally walk onto to the beach. No daily housekeeping, which we were unaware of, and weren't told about at check-in. Staff would replenish towels, coffee, cups, and change trash upon request. Balconies are not for sitting. Very narrow. Sliding doors very difficult to open. Decent restaurant. Staff shortage, so breakfast is grab and go. They do send daily texts to let you know. Hotel has so much potential, but it's not being maximized. Overall, it was a pleasant stay. Jay and Tristain very nice, as were the bartenders.
