The Tides Laguna Beach
Ranked #9 of 22 Hotels in Laguna Beach
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed 6 September 2012 via mobile

We stayed for 3 nights over Labor Day weekend (and also my birthday). The rooms were fine, not luxury, but what you needed including fridge. Pool area wa beautiful and the staff were excellent. Loved the birthday offer - we paid the last 2 digits of the year of my birth for my birthday night.
Laguna beach is a great town with a really good atmosphere and a good selection of shops/restaurants/bars, all within walking distance of The Tides. The beach was pretty narrow for all the crowds - we preferred the beach at Newport Balboa Peninsula a few miles up the coast. Overall, a great trip to Laguna beach and really liked The Tides.

We stayed at the tides laguna inn for our family vactaion and loved it. Joe and Dale were on point for all recommendations (entertainmnet, food, services)and very helpful. The entire staff was friendly and so.. nice. The inn is located in a great spot, 1 block from beach, walking distance to town/shops and close to great places to eat. Thanks for making our stay so great!!

I havent even left my room but had to write a review because I am blown away at the exceptional service.

My HBO wasnt working and I was looking forward watching it during my stay, as I dont use a TV at home. Dale at the front desk should get a raise or bonus for spending hours and constant follow-up to get the HBO channel to work for me. I got to watch 15mins of my show, True Blood, and I am still shocked at the service. This is so rare and I will definitely stay again.

The rooms are clean, affordable, 1blk from the beach, has parking, nice pool area, vending machines and great staff.

Dale always goes out of his way for our guests. but because of you we did solve some TV problems.....as far as a raise for Dale--you are too kind but we will all discuss it! He is the best.
We thank you for your understanding and hope you return.

We had our Family Reunion at The Tides this year. We booked every room they have which was perfect for our size family. The Tides is in a great location for all sorts of activities. It is about a one and a half block walk to the beach so you don't have to worry about parking. They have plenty at the Inn. Joe and Judy are so kind, friendly and helpful. The pool area was an Awesome place for everyone to congregate. Plenty of tables and chairs. That became our main gathering area. Thank you Joe and Judy for a Great week. I'm from the Kansas City area and when I'm back in the area of Laguna Beach I know where I'm staying. Can't wait till next time!

I loved our stay at The Tides with my 2 boys, (9 & 11). Room & bath were large, clean, cheery and had everything we needed. I appreciated the fridge and the intelligent layout. Location is great, across the street from the beach and within walking distance to everything. Owners are very friendly and helpful and provided good coffee in the morning. My boys enjoyed the pool. Would definitely stay again - good value!

If you're thinking of having a family reunion, The Tides is perfect. We rented the whole place for our group of 62 and it was great. The pool area is fantastic for any getogether . . . complete with two bars, fireplace, pool, and lots of space. Joe and Judy, the managers, supplied our every need. Every room is different and unique. Very welcoming! A block to the ocean, nice restaurants, grocery store, etc. We were there from Monday to Friday and everyone wanted to stay for more.

Room Tip: We were in 105 with a king bed that was very comfortable. It was also big enough to move in a futon...

We all agree that your family truly knows how to have fun. The Tides crew loved hearing your stories and watching all those happy kids in the pool and at the BBQ. We would not mind being part of your group ourselves. Hoping you can plan another get-away real soon. We thank you for choosing us.

First of all I would agree with the others that Joe and Judy Wood were superb hosts and were not only very nice but also went out of their way to suggest beaches, restaurants and events that they suggested we attend. Both restaurant recommendations were excellent and we really enjoyed the beaches in Laguna as they were secluded and within walking distance. As a matter of fact everything was within walking distance which was great. The only downside to our stay was the lack of king beds and the traffic noise particularly on Sunday night (the week days were much quieter). The inn provided ear plugs for the traffic noise which was a nice touch. It was really nice to be able to have beach chairs and towels and Judy let us keep the chairs and towels even after we checked out. We would come back again in a minute next time we are in town!

Thanks for bragging on our location...isn't it great to leave your car in the complimentary parking spot and walk to everything, beach included? We are so glad you enjoyed that. We do have rooms with king beds so next time you call to reserve, please ask for availability.

Until your next visit,
