So we read all the reviews and they were all fabulous, I wish I could say the same but I really wasn't that impressed. I'm not hard to please when it comes to hotels, there are a few key things that I look for, cleanliness is number one on my list, and I felt that The Tides was not really...

Great location, friendly and attentive owners and on-site management team, lovely property. Rooms looked even better to us when we saw them than the photos indicated on their website. Across the street from beautiful Heisler Park, a nice place to wander and enjoy a sunset. We did the right thing selecting the Tides, and are thankful we did.

My husband and I spent one night here on our SoCal five-day road trip. It's a modest hotel, nothing fancy, but clean and well maintained inside and out (nice pool area). It's located directly on PCH within walking distance to the beach (the restaurants are a bit further south, a fair hike by foot). We stayed in room 205 and...

The Tides Inn has a great location and I enjoyed my stay. It was my first time there and the staff was great; although the hotel itself is not flashy. It is situated right on PCH between Crystal Cove and the main Laguna Beach area so it is central to a lot of things. They have a nice pool area...

We very much appreciate your taking the time to review The Tides. It is a great place for a single visitor as well as a family. We have some darling small rooms and yes, our location is fabulous. Parking for free and being able to walk all over town are wonderful perks. Please return soon--winters are also quite gorgeous. Linda

We couldn't have been treated more warmly or courteously. No wonder this modest motel gets such high ratings from guests! We chose the Tides Inn because our daughter was getting married in Laguna Beach at Heisler Park across the street. The Tides management bent over backward to accommodate our requests and make our stay hassle-free. My husband says, "It was...

What a great place to stay in Laguna. Convient to everything. Beach is a block away, shops down the street, trolley stop right outside the Inn. I stayed at The Tides with my two kids and Fred and Denise made us feel like family. We arrived after the office closed, well Fred put our room key under our mat in...

What a delight to find a hidden gem in beautiful Laguna Beach! Cute, quaint, and homey! We were taking a trip down the coastline and were only staying 1 night, but would have loved staying longer. We thoroughly enjoyed our room 102 for our family of 4. We loved the large table, which was perfect for board games and elbow...

Halfway through our trip from SF to SD on Hwy 1, we found ourselves in Laguna Beach and checked the Tides out on the web. We took a chance and stopped in finding 2 rooms for 2 nights. The location was convenient to groceries, beverages and restaurants and the vibe is typical SoCal. Here's what makes this unique. Great staff,...

No negatives about this place. We really enjoyed our stay. Unfortunately, we were only here for one night. From the time we arrived until the time we left, all of the staff were wonderful and as helpful as they possibly could be (wish we could remember their names). We stayed at three places during our time in California and this...

We love a true review. Room 203 is our smallest room with the smallest bed tucked in a corner. The skylight is wonderful and opens for more air. We also put a small fridge and microwave in that room. It is great for sleeping and perfect for one person. We have a regular who stays a month and calls it...
