My parents stayed at the Tides for many years, and it was always their favorite place at the cape. We have been visiting the cape since I was a small child, and have always found the Falmouth Heights area to be my favorite part of the cape,and the Tides Motel to be the best value on the cape.

My boyfriend and I (in our mid-20s for those of you researching) stayed here this past summer and found it to be the perfect getaway. Being on the beach here makes you feel as if you are a million miles from the outside world when you are in fact quite close to downtown Falmouth, which is great for going out to dinner and shopping. We loved that once you arrive - you have no reason to leave. No sitting in traffic or waiting for parking at public beaches...we simply stepped downstairs onto the private beach which was never overcrowded. We also were able to walk to and from the ferry to go to Martha's Vineyard for the day. Great place to go with your significant other, or one or two of your girlfriends for a 'girls weekend.' Not the place to go to party if you're a group of young people - which is also why it is great for couples. The other guests seemed to be pretty easy going, so it's not the type of place you have to worry about 'stuck up' touristy types. Being next to the beach at night is so romantic and peaceful. The room itself was super clean, the bathroom seemed almost new, and the staff was very friendly. Can't wait to return here next summer!

Stayed at the Tides recently, and loved every minute of it. Right on the water, listen to the surf, dig your toes in the sand, have a cocktail, and relax! Walking distance to great Falmouth restaurants, and super beaches, including the one right outside your door. The staff was super, very kind, and helpful. Offseason rates were very good, would definitely stay here again!

We happened upon the Tides Motel while visiting Falmouth - ended up staying 3 nights.
Hospitality was great and the unit was extremely clean. Enjoyed being so close to the water. The harbor boats were fun to watch and the waves were wonderful.

Would definitely return.

Do not stay here if you want to have fun. This place ruined our wedding night because
the manager put a complaining regular patron next to our wedding party. Get terms
of deposit because you will probably end up paying for a room. We assumed the deposit was for room damage or cancellations. An inept manager sent us our deposit back minus $150 without explaination. All we did was return from our fabulous wedding with a bunch of people to talk about the night and we were immediately confronted to "keep it down" by our next door neighbor. We complied to terms of noise. All we were doing was talking, no music. We are all in our 40's not 20's, and all professionals. As far as we were concerned, The Tides Hotel ruined our wedding night. You can't get that back,
DO NOT STAY HERE!!!!!! Too cheap to provide shampoo, hairdryer, or iron. That rude man tried to get his whole weekend paid, for an inconvenient hour. Give me a break.

We appreciate all reviews both positive and negative, but we do hope reviewers are truthful and accurate with their comments, neither of which can be applied to your review. Being a small, seasonal, family owned business, we value the relationships we have made with our guests over the last forty-five years and rely greatly on returning customers. Unfortunately sometimes incidents happen that force me to make difficult decisions, such as the one you are referring to, to ensure an enjoyable and safe stay for ALL of our guests.
