The place is a little out dated but they have made several upgrades over the years (Such as TV's and beds). It isn't a real frills place but I think it is one of the best values in OC. The rooms are clean, there is access to the beach just steps away, and the staff was very friendly. There is...

I love this place. The rooms large, big full size refri.,had a stove which I didn't use. The maids were helpful and very friendly. The pool was small but it was good for me. I like I could cross the street and catch a bus for $3.00 and ride all day. If staying here ask to stay on the first...

Just got back from a 3-day/2-night stay. This is my 3rd stay at this place. GREAT place for the price! The staff is friendly, rooms are clean. Love the location and the small kitchen. Can't wait until next year to stay even longer!!

We stayed at the Tides motel from Fri-Sun a long weekend away! Our room was so clean my husband even commented it was the cleanest hotel bathroom he's ever seen. It was so nice to have a full kitchen with a full size refrigerator we were talking about staying longer next time. The location was so close to the beach...

Well this is not a 5 star place but it was great for my family. It was clean, it had a small area to cook. We needed a roll away bed and it was at our room before we even got the car parked and a few things carried up. We were within easy walking distance to the beach. The...

Our stay was for only two nights, but the rate was the best that I had seen in OC with only a 2 night min. It was clean, close to the ocean, and the staff was very friendly. There are many restaraunts within walking distance and a small market for any food or liquor. The pool was clean, but slightly...

Last night of our stay. Kept awake most of night by loud party. This is supposed to be a quiet family motel! People screaming , music playing loudly and kids awake at 4 in the morning! Read many reviews and this is not what we expected!!

At $142.00 a night, on a beach block, it's a great deal. The room was clean, bed was average. The furnishings were a bit dated, the locks were old fashion keys, and staff was friendly, always a smile and a hello as they passed you. Upon check in, the manager pointed out the parking lots, check in was easy and...

Our family was headed to the beach for 1 night only and didn't want to spend a ton of money. The motel was exactly as described. We were on the ground level near the pool. The pool is small just like most of the other beach hotels. The room was a nice size and had a kitchen. The room was...

We stayed at the Tides Saturday and Sunday Nights of Memorial Day weekend 2015. This is one of OC's biggest weekends all year and it can be a struggle to find a decent hotel on a budget. The Tides was less than half the cost of some other properties and offered the most bang for our buck. The motel itself...

“We enjoy the annex rooms which face a dead end road to the beach, Not much traffic.”

“The Annex will put you closer to the beach. If you don't mind walking up to the third floor, no elevators, it's quieter.”

“Rooms have a shared balcony, so if you're trying to pick between floors know that the 1st floor rooms are at ground level and face the parking lot. The 2nd and 3rd floors are accessible by stairs only.”
