The hotel rooms are a little underwhelming but the views are great, the service is great and the town is absolutely fantastic. Easy to get around by foot. Great restaurants. Fun atmosphere throughout the whole area!!

Every afternoon that I came back to the room I pulled the covers back and there was at least one bug crawling in between the sheets. My reservation was for 4 nights, I only stayed 2 because of this. The location is beautiful. The staff was as friendly and personable as could be. I'm not a complainer and do not...

What a view! Great location, right on the beach. Outdoor pool overlooks the beach, and the hotel has easy beach access. Our daughter loved the pool! Loved that the hotel had an outdoor bar near the pool and a cafe with several Starbucks drinks! Staff was helpful and friendly. Folly Beach is a cute beach town, but not cheesy like...

So, this is it for being on the beach. Beach out front and pier to the side. Also had a nice pool. No breakfast served, but the coffee house downstairs had good coffee and a muffin to split. The restaurant was open, but we never want too much for breakfast. Lots of shells on the beach. Very busy at times...

Tides Folly Beach is a good beach hotel. It's not fantastic, but it is definitely above average. (I actually would rate it 3.5 stars.) For starters, I think the pictures on the hotel's website definitely embellish the actual quality of the place. That said, this is a really good beach hotel. The layout is efficient with every room having an...

From the friendly guy at the front desk, to the comfortable room with a stunning view, to the best location on Folly Beach, you can't beat the Tides! Folly Beach is a quirky, special place. From the Tides, you have easy access to all of it.

We loved our oceanfront room with a balcony! Loved falling asleep to the sound of the ocean. Heated oceanfront pool was a hit with the kids. Had a drink fireside while taking in the amazing scenery of Folly Beach at Blu. We spent a day on the beach and walked to The Lost Dog Cafe for breakfast and Woody's Pizza...

Tides at Folly Beach is right On the beach; great for families; Spring Break; or a couple who wants a fun, easy get-away. Dogs are allowed. The beach front heated pool and bar/restaurant creates a fun atmosphere, often with live music or a DJ. Plenty of restaurants and unique tourist shops within easy walking distance. They even provide beach towels...

My husband and I had never visited the area before, and wanted to stay in a nice hotel right on the beach. The Tides was exactly what we wanted, steps from the beach and centrally located to restaurants, shopping and the pier. Our room on the 9th floor had a spectacular view of the beach. The front desk staff were...
