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.

Location, Location, Location!!!
Out of all the hotels we stayed at during our road trip from San Francisco to Los Angeles this was certainly the best! It ticked all the boxes even though we were aware that it was a hotel not built this century! But that was partly its charm. May not suit everyone, particularly those "corporate" accommodated types, but for us senior adventurers it was perfect. Can't wait to book one of the cottages for next year!

The room was extremely small. The bathroom sink didn’t drain well. My husband removed the drain stopper and it was so clogged with hair, it was gross and disgusting!

Very Good8.0
Great hotel will definitely recommend to family and friends the only down side is the beach access stairs are out of commission and you have to walk 2 blocks to get to the beach

This place needs a major upgrade!
This place is pretty awful. The Seacrest next door is lovely and the Cottage Inn (2 doors down) is also very nice. But on a busy summer weeknight this was what $150-ish can buy. And it wasn’t worth it. Ok. It’s next to the beach. But the room itself was dirty, severely outdated, and there is no service whatsoever. Spend the extra money and stay somewhere else.
