Reviewed 8 August 2013

Recently, me and my boyfriend stayed here. Our room was very nice, and decorated very pretty and it had an ocean view without the price tag. It was so cool that the hotel room offered some books to read. And we absolutely loved the kitchenette!! But there was a few minor details that bothered us; our lock to our room looked like someone had tried to break in, the window looked out onto the stairs, it was a little dirty, and there was some water damage on the ceiling. The parking spots are very tight, especially if you drive a bigger veichile like an suv or truck. (We had to climb over to the passenger side to get out of our truck in all the parking spots.) But the pool was very nice and the offered a lot of "beach toys." Overall, it was defiantly worth the price we paid, and thats it. If you are looking for somewhere extravagant, then you might want to look a little harder, because they offer a little more then the minimum. It was nice, but we defiantly got what we paid for.

We are always glad to receive feedback and to fix problems. This summer was so busy (our best ever-a good thing) we hardly had time to breathe!
The deadbolt lock has been filed - key always goes in wrong door lock.
The windows are clean.
The ceiling is patched and painted.
Parking places are small but there is one for each room and NO CHARGE.
We happily look forward to a winter with more time to clean, repair, paint, make changes--our favorite things.
Please return soon. Thanks for your review.
Linda

We have stayed at The Tides Inn numerous times and are never disappointed! The staff is extremely friendly and helpful. Plus the location is so close to the beach and the main street in Laguna Beach. My husband liked it so much that he even proposed to me here 2 years ago! Their cozy outdoor fireplace made it so romantic and perfect! We highly recommend The Tides Inn!

A proposal at The Tides. We love that! Congratulations.
Laguna Beach is quite a romantic art colony.
We have the most fun when wedding parties or family reunion parties book the entire place for a several days. Folks get to know each other before the event.
Please return to celebrate as often as you like.
Thanks so much,
Linda

This was our first trip to The Tides and we were very pleased with our experience. The facility is clean and well maintained. The rooms are smaller but very well appointed and charming. The atmosphere is very comfortable and relaxed, and the staff were extremely polite and helpful. The pool area includes a fireplace and a BBQ area for guests which we also enjoyed during our stay. We will be back again for sure!

Room Tip: Rooms near the street can be a bit noisy during the day, but at night all is very peaceful.

My husband and I were planning a long weeekend to celebrate my 65th birthday when we came across The Tides Inn in Laguna Beach. This hotel was a great value, clean and so comfortable. The pool area is so inviting and in the evening they have a fireplace in the corner of the pool area which makes it so inviting. The staff is friendly and informative. This hotel may have been built in the early 50's but the owners have upgraded all the rooms and area to make this one of the best values in Laguna Beach! We will be planning another visit and have told our friends about this great place.

Room Tip: This hotel has only 21 units so they are all great.

Thanks, Patty, for the lovely review.
We are so happy that you enjoyed our salt water pool and outdoor fireplace. Fred is the best fire-builder!
Our goal was and is to be affordable and clean. Word of mouth works great for us.
Thanks again and hope to see you soon.

My husband and I are on an 8 week trip across the country with our dog. We chose this hotel because they are dog friendly and had great reviews. The owners are very nice and take very good care of their inn. They were very nice to us. We had to change rooms a few times and they took care of everything.
I give the inn a very good because the location on N Coast Hwy across the street from the ocean makes it very difficult and dangerous to get to the beach. One corner has a traffic light that is so quick you practically have to run to get across the street in time. The other corner has a button you push that activates yellow blinking lights and a voice that tells you to be careful because the cars may not stop.
We loved the Sawdust Art Show and the Pageant Of The Masters. But Laguna Beach is way too crowded and busy for us.

Thank you so much for taking the time to review The Tides.
We hope you can plan a return trip to Laguna Beach in September, October or November. The weather is gorgeous, sunsets are spectacular, crowds have gone home and the prices are cut in half.
We look forward to a return visit.

This hotel is awesome and such great value. The team behind The Tides Inn desperately want you to have an amazing time at their hotel. The details just kept hitting you. The rooms are light, clean, modern with all details and comforts covered. The kitchen is well stocked, with coffee making facilities and we had a lovely bayview over the roof tops. The whole place smells of jasmine, the gardens are very well looked after and pretty. At night the lights are gorgeous and make the whole place feel magical. There is parking for everyone. The pool is heated, clean and refreshing. There are lots of comfy and new sun loungers. There is a BBQ area and a outdoor fireplace and they actively encourage you to make a fire and enjoy the cooler evening in their outdoor lounge area. The hotel is on the main road in Laguna but we couldn't hear the traffic once the windows were shut at night and the AC is really good and quite so you don't need to leave a window open if it is hot. They even provide earplugs just in case you are a hyper-sensitively light sleeper.

Laguna Beach itself is beautiful. A lovely, proud but friendly beach town. It was a five minute walk into the centre of town along immaculate coastal gardens. Birds and wild rabbits come out to great you as you wander down. The beach is gorgeous. Large, clean and the cliffs offer stunning panoramics at sunset. Top tip, turn right out of the hotel for three minute walk to Umami Burger - best burgers we had in California and recently voted top burger by GQ.

WOW. Huge thanks. Your review almost scares us--that is a lot to live up to!! We do try hard and we do love our place. Very thankful for your appreciation.
We love Unami Burger also. All of the workers and management stayed at The Tides during their construction and opening. We adored them and their hamburgers.
Thanks again so very much,

This is our 3rd time staying at the Tides Inn, in Laguna. It is so quaint, within walking distance to downtown, Heisler Park and the beach. The grounds are beautiful and kept up so perfectly, The rooms are decorated tastefully and very very clean. They are pet friendly, so we brought our dog along on this trip and it worked out great! This is the only hotel we consider anymore when we come in from out of town to stay for a weekend getaway. They are so accomodating and easy to work with. Thank you for another perfect time away and we'll be back again soon!
