Just had six days at The Tides which was our third visit to this location. Unfortunately this time around it did not live up to our expectations. We were in room 150 for the second year and both maintenance and housekeeping have deteriorated since last year. I have emailed the hotel with the issues we had so will not go into too much detail here. The maintenance issues were fairly minor but needed to be pointed out to the staff there. Bathroom tap falling apart, towel rails coming off the walls, loose toilet seat. as I say minor but should be checked after each guest leaves.
By far the most significant problem was housekeeping which was virtually non-existent. Sheets not changed during our six day stay despite hotel policy of three day sheet change. Wet towels left on bathroom floor and clean ones just piled up on toilet. Sloppy bed making. No vacuuming or sweeping during the six day stay. Previous guests medication found under chair (we had young children with us).
The housekeeping staff are very polite and friendly but from what I understand there are some staffing issues here which management need to address.
The building is very old and there are noise problems from the other rooms especially from above. If you decide to stay here select an upper room as the lower rooms can be extremely noisy.
This hotel is in a great location but there are others in the area that are a little more expensive and should we return to Seaside will likely select a different hotel.
I have rated this a three but in truth it should only be a 2.5.

I give this hotel an A for the location, staff (especially the Monday morning desk person), cleanliness, pool was cleaned daily, provided complimentary DVDs, plastic pails and shovels for kids, pool toys....nothing to mark down on. My advice though, would be to check the size of the room/suite that you are renting. Mine was listed as sleeping four, but squeezing two adults and two children in this tiny room was a challenge. The "kitchen: consisted of two stove top burners, a very tiny sink and a microwave. NO counter space; no toaster, no room at all. For a couple the size would work, but not any more. I felt I had to give a poor rating for rooms, but really only because it was so tiny and too much furniture crammed in. Barely any walking around room. When the futon was open, actually had to work hard to get around table, Walmart coffee table, wobbly legs and all, two night stands and one queen bed. Also no floor lamp, only one tiny table lamp. Would definitely stay here again, but not in this room; a larger one!

Room Tip: Skip the tiny studios

Left Best Western Ocean View & came to The Tides. What an improvement. Loved the room, comfortable bed, awesome ocean view, fireplace that worked, heat that worked. Quiet, even though full of families. Cost less & polite, helpful staff! Would stay here again & recommend to friends & family!

Room Tip: We had a room facing the ocean - what can one say - the view was spectacular!

We had a 1 bedroom Condo with a huge picture window looking out on the dunes and the beach. With big recliners that swiveled to face the window or room, you could sit and enjoy the breakers without even going outside. We felt we were staying at a grandparent's house by the furntiture and decorating, which was kind of nice, very homey and comfortable. Full kitchen with everything we needed. They even left a duraflame in the fireplace. Nice family oriented place on the quiet end of town.

Can't wait to stay at Tides By the Sea again! We had reserved another hotel for Memorial day weekend and arrived to find out that they had "double booked our room and I'm sorry we don't have a room for you" Tides by the Sea happened to have a cottage available and we stayed with them. Wow! What a surprise! We usually stick to the big chain hotels because I like to know what to expect when staying. Tides by the Sea was very clean, in a perfect location and the staff was great!
