Classic motel with great location
Tides is an older motel/hotel but very clean and in a very convenient location. Easy walk to downtown, restaurants, and beaches.

Cons and Pros
If a person/family/couple likes to camp out or doesn’t mind a one or two star motel or has kids that are overactive and might damage the furniture The Tides is for you. (I can't understand why the owners can't get a 1/2 pint of white paint and touch up the door jams, window seals, painted white furniture, etc it would improve the looks tremendously). If you don’t mind a half-dozen+ kids squealing in the pool outside your window until 9pm+, this place is for you. If you can sleep through several hours of the visitors above us rolling their luggage ?? around and you don’t mind hearing people taking shower/s at 4, 5, 6, 7am, it’s right for you. Seriously, if a couple is looking for a place to overnight and they requested a room in the back on the top floor, maybe it wouldn’t be too bad. We did not think about the pool or being on a bottom floor being a problem. The walls are paper thin. But it is a good training lesson for us for the next trip. Pro: it is very well located for short hikes to the beach and into the town. The staff was very pleasant but we interacted just a couple of minutes. I think they would have moved us if we had requested it but too much happened to late to move.

WHAT A DELIGHTFUL SURPRISE! We swam in the beautiful, clean pool daily. The room was beautiful, cozy and full of character. I'm coming back again for sure.

very nice
Stay was super nice & staff was very friendly. Room included kitchen which was super nice to have. Only thing was the bed was a little too hard for my liking. It could definitely use a room decor update as well.

Excellent service! Great location! However I didn’t get a good night sleep. Several hotel Guest got into an argument & several policeman arrived @ 1am to break it up. Not the owners fault! I loved the room decor & the staff was exceptional.

A great find!
So cute and comfy. Staff was very helpful, friendly and accommodating. Location is perfect. Although, it is right on PCH so there is some road noise. But that shouldn’t deter you.
