This is our third stay at Tides Inn and we would come even more often but it's always booked up in season. It is a little gem, right on the beach with a beautiful pool. Bicycles, kayaks, beach chairs and umbrellas among other equipment are available for use free of charge. The rooms are spotless and Lilianna is a gem!!!...

Great time, perfect place to relax and enjoy the beach. The rooms are clean and everybody is ready to help. The pool is perfect too. It has a lift for people in wheelchairs. Publix is just a block away and a few more blocks there are restaurants and places for ice creams, bnars.

Wonderful hotel and run extremely well. Would recommend this to everyone. It's a very quaint hotel on the beach. None of the hassles of the big chain hotels and no fighting over pool or beach chairs. Liliana and staff make sure your stay is the best. It's extremely clean Loved it and will be back.
