Good 7.4 From 278 reviews

Very good 8.0
Recommended if in room 210!
It’s a slightly tired motel. But room 210 is great! You can look at the Pacific from the very large bed, and have a deck just for your own use with a similar view and a gas fire pit. The room was clean and the staff very pleasant. Recommended if on room 210!

Carole,s review of Tides.
Reception staff are polite, pleasent and efficient. The rooms are clean but smelt a little bit 'doggy'. The road behind is a bit noisy but the sea view makes up for that. Overall excellent value for money.

Definitely a go-back-in-time experience. Bed comfy and view excellent. Had trouble getting hot water, so glad was only a quick overnight trip. Overall a decent place yet not inviting. Will probably pass in future even tho pricing was good.

Light sleepers beware..
Light sleepers beware of room 110. If noises are an issue avoid this place all together. I really wanted to rate this place better but I just can't. I haven't even checked out but I am here wide awake at 7:30 am because of noise upstairs. Whoever made the decision to put a game room in room 210 is cruel because the walls/floors are paper thin and you can hear EVERY SINGLE MOVE. I think there is pool table and foosball table in the suite room directly above us. Whoever is in there played until 2am and started playing again at 7am. if there isn't a game table maybe we just got unlucky but people were walking around nonstop. I am here on a work trip and worked until 10pm. I wanted to sleep in before my 6 hour drive back home. Additionally you can hear freeway traffic but I could handle that. But upstairs..... Beds were comfortable, the sleep I did get was great, the place seemed clean. It is older but I didn't find that an issue. Bathroom wasn't the best. Location was great. wasn't a bad room overall. But man this room placement has been a nightmare for me as a light sleeper who is sensitive to noise. So if you are the same, book elsewhere or to a single cottage. P.S. if you are on the second floor be cautious of walking around. the floors are so thin. I am not mad at them they probably have no idea how loud it was for us but if you are reading this you do, be kind to who is below you. I feel like the single cottages would be wonderful but the rooms on the building not so much.

No return visit.
Room was not up to expectations. Very small and not updated. The room was clean and bed was comfortable. Coffee machine and TV worked. Parking was far from room and microwave was in main office. Will not stay there again.
