Pros: Perfect location away from the crowds of downtown, but within walking distance of beaches, bluffs and park.
The 2nd floor room was perfect for the two of us. Comfortable bed with convenience of a kitchenette.

The Tides live up to their Web site - plus extras!

Posted Jun 21, 2016
Pros: Friendly staff, clean pool, close to Laguna Beach highlights. Restful and quiet location.
Location: Heisler Park, a great place for a family walk and outing!
Came down to bring a relative to visit with her aging mother. The Tides was a great venue - close to Laguna Beach shops, beaches, places to enjoy. After a day at the beach, we realized our car was getting full of beach sand, and staff at the Tides offered us one of their vacuums. This was very helpful, getting our car ready for our long drive back up to northern California. The Tides gave us a wonderful place to unwind as we and our children were treated to some southern California experiences. Thank you Tides!

Nice hotel close to beach.

Nice hotel close to beach and restuarants within walking distance. Older hotel but kept nicely and well organized. The ladies at the reception area were very helpful and provided lots of information about the area. I would stay there again.

Sweet staff makes anniversary special

Posted Jun 16, 2016
Pros: Staff Location Parking Thoughtfulness Quaintness
Cons: Room quality More snacks
Location: Very convenient location. Easily walkable to Broadway, the beach, and other areas.
The staff is incredibly friendly and did everything they could to make our stay more enjoyable. They left a sweet card and bottle of wine in our room for our anniversary, and were flexible with a late check-out. They offered suggestions of restaurants and attractions, and were all-around delightful. The room was quaint without any windows (except one in the bathroom) which made it kind of feel like the kind of room you'd find on a cruise ship. Sheets were clean, AC worked, but the shower would suddenly get really hot. Overall, this is a great place for a one night or two night spot to crash with amazing staff. Very convenient location. Everything is walkable. Nice to have parking and a little pool. Just don't expect a gorgeous room.

5 star hospitality at this 2 star gem

Posted Jun 13, 2016
Very kind and professional welcome to The Tides. Loved the ivy draped entrance. The hotel is in a wonderful location across from the beach access and within walking distance to Las Brisas and my favorite breakfast spot Madison Square Garden Cafe and gift shop (ricotta pancakes!) . We were pleased with our super clean cute retro kitchenette and appreciated the Keurig coffee machine, the full size fridge and thoughtful touches in the room. Our 2 double beds were very comfortable with soft quality linens and duvets. I missed having a tub but, the shower had plenty of hot water, the toiletries were top notch and appreciated the window for ventilation. Front desk happily printed directions for me upon checkout. We did not use the pool but, it was a nice option and looked well kept with a privacy gate. We had no trouble with any street noise and would certainly return! A+ for this 2 star gem.

Very cozy and close to shopping dining and the beach, all within walking distance. I wish wish I had more vacation time so I could have stayed the whole week.

Cute small hotel.

Posted May 1, 2016
Hotel felt comfy and cute. Bathroom shower was small, might be hard for taller individuals to shower. Very close and convenient to a lot nearby. Great quality for the price! Would recommend !
