Property overall is aging, could use some updating. Room was quite large, had plenty of room for everyone. Bathroom was a little cramped. The tile floor was nasty to walk on bare foot because of all the sand that would stick to your feet. One staff member was drunk off his a** talking to us in the parking lot, but it didn’t bother us, we just found it funny. He was still doing his job. Front desk staff wasn’t all that friendly either, but I met one young lady the morning we checked out who was super sweet. Probably would stay somewhere else next time, but I’d say it’s located in the most active area of the boardwalk which younger crowds may appreciate.

The property is very dated and not the cleanest either. Location is great, and the front desk staff were very friendly. One huge piece of information I would like to share is DO NOT book a room near the pool unless you like to stay up very late and be awoken by Reveille playing loudly every morning. The music coming from the pool bar is insanely loud.

Interiors are pretty outdated but facility was clean

i always stay there every time i go to maryland

Pros: The kitchenette worked & served our purpose. The location to the boardwalk is great. Cons: There is 'free parking' but was not advertised that there are FOUR lots covering multiple blocks. They are not well described in a 'map' they give you & not well-labeled with visibility from the street - especially in the dark. I drove around for over an hour in the dark trying to find a spot in one of the four parking lots, finally got the last spot in 4th lot. The room itself was OK (served the purpose of sleeping, showering & saving some money on food). *Always* keep the AC running or condensation forms on the tile floor, which a family member slipped. If you keep the AC running pretty cool this is fine, but too cold for some. There is moisture and mold, unfinished trim in the room, not as pictured in the listing. This is not explained, but there is one sign at the front desk that you must ask for housekeeping every day by 0800 or you will not get housekeeping for that day. Overall worked, but the cost is overinflated in my opinion, would not stay again or recommend.

Dirty sheets with hairs. Not enough towel. No sheets or blankets for sofa bed.

It was close to the beach, boardwalk and stores. Dislike the bathroom was nasty and old. Needed repairs and replacements. A few other guest were disrespectful of my property (Jeep)

I would never ever stay at tidelands. Customer service was not good. Checked in the room the linen on the bed was dirty & the room stink. Told front desk they told me they didn’t have a house keeper on hand. They moved me to another room & it smelled old. Like it has been closed up forever. I sprayed microban to try to get rid of the smell & it didn’t work. I Just checked out got a refund & went to another hotel right next door.

Cons: Took hours for the room to finally be ready. and we arrived after 4. We were told housekeeping staff was limited and were running behind. There was the smell of marijuana throughout the lobby. Security was notified and seem to be aware of the issue. found some hairs in the jetted tub. I guess because of the r

A Great ocean view from our room. Your within walking distance to a lot of boardwalk features.

Great Location Right on Boardwalk. Place needs some up grading. Bathrooms are old. Are toilet was slanted to the right. Rust in the bathrooms. But rooms where clean.

I like how close I was to attractions. I also like that there was a pool bar at one of their pools. And I really liked how spacious our room was. Some of the downfalls were when trying to flush the toilet and shower it just wouldn’t drain or flush properly. Also I didn’t like that I had a family member sleeping on the sofa bed and the sofa bed smelled like urine. Lastly at the pool was fine but there just wasn’t enough room to sit down or lay out and the pool needed a good cleaning.

Extremely late check in ..........................................

Crabcake Factory on premises was awesome. Staff was very friendly. Pools were both nice and clean. Location was awesome. Kids could go out on the boardwalk easily and beach was right there.

2 room suites with king size bed in each room and a kitchen with stove top. I don't mind the street view to get those features.
