Great little place to base yourself for a trip to Laguna beach. Within walking distance of the town center and everything that you need. Rooms are spacious, clean and comfortable. Hotel staff cannot do enough for you. This was a real find - it has so many personal touches that I wont spoil by listing them here! It really is...

Loved my room! Kitchenette with queen bed. First floor a little noisy with traffic but died own about 11pm. Clean & quaint room. Walking distance...

Turned up late afternoon to see if had a room - helpful receptionist booked us in no worries. Thoroughly enjoyed the stay, quick walk to all the great bars and restaurants. Big room. Great pool area. Nice and quiet, even off main road. Also worth the walk along the Heisler Park in the morning. Cannot fault!

Great location, friendly staff, clean rooms, nice pool and fireplace area. This is small property and not a resort, so it's not what everyone is looking for, but it's exactly what some of us are thrilled to find! Can't wait to return!

We loved everything about this hotel. We were greeted with a friendly receptionist. When we went to our room there was a personalized note to welcome us. The sheets and towels were very soft. And, the hotel was in a great part of town. We highly recommend this place. We will definitely go back.

Our group of 19 adult friends and family members, plus a one and three year old, considered The Tides Inn our private compound! We loved the communal area, pool, barbeque area, the lounge chairs, and especially gathering around the fireplace to have a glass of wine sharing stories of the day's wedding events. The Tribe will return!!!!

Decided to call directly and make a reservation because we wanted an ocean view from the room. The staff was very helpful as to which rooms that would be and we can't wait for our 35th wedding anniversary time there!

Choose this motel for a 3 day visit to Laguna Beach for its price and location, and I think I made a good choice. I was greeted by name at the registration desk, and with a handwritten welcome note-card in my room. I had room 208, which is at the top of the building up two flights of stairs (not...

We checked in late about 10pm which at that time I would expect to get less then great customer service. I was met by Anderson at the front desk who was incredibly friendly and welcoming. He offered to match the less expensive price for lodging that I found online and helped us with our bags to the room. Room was...

Charming room with a very relaxed "beachy" feel...nice windows, air & light. Very friendly staff & reception. Convenient location a short walk to the center of town, shopping, dining, etc. Just across the street from a beautiful park running along the cliffs to the beach.
