It's dog friendly, LOVE IT! I sure will return here again. The swimming pool, the bbq area, the fire place was a cozy space to lounge around outdoors. Plus the pool is heated, thumbs up! The room was charming, it was clean considering they allow dogs. They also provide post cards, amazing! I took 12 cards and mailed it to... More

Accommodation in Laguna Beach is expensive and I think Tides offers good value for money. The room booked was small and dingy - no window in bedroom area. When we asked if we could up grade to a larger room the staff could not have been more helpful. We stayed in 2 different rooms both were spacious well decorated and... More

I was given a room with two beds a little kitchen and a sitting area outside. Fabulous! I felt very safe there. Anderson and Stephanie were unbelievably helpful. My phone got wet yep...in the ocean. I was under stress anyway, by the end of my stay in felt much better. The bed was very comfortable! I walked everywhere. The hotel... More

After spending a lot of time in motels travelling the US, Laguna beach is our last stop before we go so we decided to spend a little more of our budget to stay here and I'm glad we did! Lovely little pool area that rarely gets busy - we had it to ourselves the whole day one day. There's a... More

I used to stay at another hotel, right across the street, that is way more expensive. I am happy I changed to The Tides, where personnel is exceptionally kind and of service and where one has comfortable, albeit older looking, rooms and free parking.

The Tides is a very clean well maintained motel at the North end of Laguna Beach. Close enough to restuarants and night clubs without all the noise. For the young people it is only a hop skip and jump to the beach. There is free bus service between 11AM and 11PM to get you around the main street in town.... More

I booked this place because of location - walking distance to Heisler Park. The guy at front desk could not have been nicer. Very polite, professional, & helpful. The hotel is an older bldg, but our room was clean & had plenty of space. We didn't stay long enough to use the pool, but it looked nice. I would stay... More
