We loved the convenience of the location, the pool area, and the fluffy towels! The staff couldn't have been friendlier or more helpful. I hope to visit this great little place again soon.

We have stayed at a couple of places in Laguna now and this one was one I would return to. There are always things you wish each place had but over all this was a nice stay. The staff was very friendly at check in and out. The room was clean and the handwritten card and bottled waters were a sweet and personal touch. We were able to walk to Las Brisas for breakfast and that was very nice. On the wish list side: in our room there was a big chair and small table just outside the bathroom door and both my husband and I ran into it a different times. It doesn’t need to be there and should be removed. And parking is always tough at any place we have stayed. Very tight spaces to maneuver and I’m always worried that my car will get a door ding. Not sure what can be done with that but there are metered spots out front and I almost would rather park there to be honest, if they didn’t have time limits I probably would have. Maybe the hotel can negotiate with the city to have one or two metered spaces with longer limits and offer to cover the cost for guests? The other thing I wish at every place I stay is for a remote to the tv that has a sleep timer, but that might just be me😊 so overall, the pluses far outweigh any negatives and we would absolutely stay here again.

The Tides is a quaint place conveniently located on North Coastal Highway. The main attractions in Laguna Beach were all within walking distance. The staff was very friendly and accommodating during the stay. The rooms had solid wood flooring suitable for the climate.

Absolutely loved our stay here! The location, the pool and parking on site. The pool was our favorite part! Friendly staff too. The room was a little small, but we didn’t care because we were out exploring Laguna most of the time. Highly recommend!
