    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.

    Staff was absolutely excellent!

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

    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.

    Superb

    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.

    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.

    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.

    Very good

    The location of Tides was amazing!

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

    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.

    Wonderful location, very clean, nice staff.

    Wish there had been a microwave.

    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.

    Felt it was overpriced. The floors were filthy. The bathtub wouldn't drain, the linen was rough, a full kitchen would have been ideal for the price and beach lounge chairs should be included in outrageous price.
