    The manager denied that a package had been delivered for us, until we accessed UPS online to prove he had signed for it. He was either totally disorganized, or he was a thief. I tend to believe it was both. The staff at the front desk were less than helpful. They didn't even give me a receipt or copy of my bill when we checked out -- which was a day early due to our displeasure with the situation.

  • 5.0

    The beach and location

    Elevator consistently broke down, pool toooooooo small for the size of the hotel. Overpriced!

  • 7.8

    Great location with beautiful ocean view! Staff was friendly and accommodating. Walking distance to local shops and restaurants. Convenient chair/umbrella rental on the beach. County owned fishing pier next door.

    Entry door (Rm 718) was difficult to open and close. Either door or frame was warped.

  • 9.2

    Staff was absolutely excellent!

    We were not advised the pool was inoperable upon arrival but it was useable within a day.

  • 8.2

    Great location, friendly staff, loved the bar & coffee shop!

    Elevators seemed to be out of order everyday, brunch was not as good as expected... Shampoo & soaps were not as nice as we would have liked. The mini fridge didn't work too well and the carpets were sticky in the room.

  • 9.2

    The location was great, the room was clean and the staff was friendly. The hotel is in walking distance of the restaurants.

    There should be a separate section for families with pets.

  • 8.2

    Location and view were very nice.

    A person left their dog in the room next to us for an early breakfast so everyone got to hear it bark from 6:45am on. Staff tried to contact them but they didn't answer their cell. Policy should be that they get kicked out but it wasn't so we left.

  • 9.6

    Room was clean

    Bathroom was hot

  • 8.2

    Parking staff and check-in staff were excellent.

    Bedding needs updated, especially mattress pad. Also I observed housekeeping staff change bed and she did not tuck mattress cover and fitted sheet under the bottom edge of the mattress.

  • 7.4

    Location is right on the beach and you can rent beach chair and umbrellas. Restaurant was tasty. Staff was friendly and willing to help, manager worked with us to make it right when our WiFi didn't work.

    WiFi in the room did not work on our tablets. Sheets were a little rough. Balcony was not large enough to pull out a chair and sit.

  • 7.4

    The location of Tides was amazing!

    The room was not very clean as well as you could hear your neighbor loud and clear.

  • 9.6

    Location was great - right on the beach!

    With only 2 elevators for the entire hotel it sometimes took a while. The parking was first come, don't leave or you lost it.

  • 9.6

    Wonderful location, very clean, nice staff.

    Wish there had been a microwave.

  • 9.2

    Tiny balconies. Ocean front; ocean view but the balcony was super tiny. Two folding chairs (which had to be requested from the front desk) would barely fit on the balcony.

  • 3.8

    Very rude messed room up then bathroom door got jammed had to switch rooms late night and terrible attitudes about there mess ups
