I was scared to book this place after reading the reviews about Devon that works at the desk. But it was a last minute trip and they had rooms available at a great price! (we were going for Bike Week so everything was booked solid!) I guess I was lucky to have not encountered him, or they gave him off...

The Tides Motel is well situated, with a courteous, thorough staff, that was friendly and accommodating. The rooms are larger than typical rooms, and there was ample parking whatever the hour. It is reasonably priced, and will give your comfortable accommodations near great shops and eateries, all without taxing your wallet. Yes, it's a budget motel, but that is not...

I have to say I couldn't understand all the bad reviews. It isn't an expensive place so I don't know what someone would expect. The...

My wife and I stayed here for three nights in Mid July when we decided to stay further down the beach and avoid the boardwalk for a change. Immediately upon entering our room we noticed a musty smell that never went away for 3 days. We discovered part of the reason for it that evening when I took a blanket...

Normally I never do this. But I felt that everybody needed to know that this is by far the worst place to ever stay at for a vacation. I have never been treated so rudely by anybody anywhere I have ever went. I asked a simple question about an email and was pretty much treated like an idiot. The rooms...

Dirty, fighting all night in the parking lot, people peeing in the street, foul language in the parking lot, slamming doors all night long. Kids everywhere, i will never stay there again. Went in the off season and expected it to be quiet, NOT! I would not reccommend to anyone, what a DUMP.

Very nice motel for basic accommodations. The bathrooms are a little outdated but rooms are very clean. An excellent value and great centralized location. Just steps from the beach. The staff was very friendly and helpful! I would definitely stay here again.

“We enjoy the annex rooms which face a dead end road to the beach, Not much traffic.”

“The Annex will put you closer to the beach. If you don't mind walking up to the third floor, no elevators, it's quieter.”

“Rooms have a shared balcony, so if you're trying to pick between floors know that the 1st floor rooms are at ground level and face the parking lot. The 2nd and 3rd floors are accessible by stairs only.”
