"A Great Getaway in Every Way!
we choose to come back to The Tides with our two young kids. The rooms
are clean, welcoming and charmingly decorated (each room is distinctive,
with freshly upholstered chairs/pillows, original artwork and stenciled
quotes from famous authors on the beamed ceilings), the service is
professional and very friendly courtesy of Cathryn and the owners,
Linda and Dale, and the prices very fair for what you get. The saltwater
pool is large enough to splash around in and have fun, the location
is only a few minutes' walk from downtown Laguna and fabulous beaches,
and we can make quick meals in the furnished kitchen. While we love
to eat in Laguna's restaurants for dinner, you can easily BBQ in the
outdoor kitchen and entertain a few friends in the large patio area
around the pool. Lounge chaises around the pool are comfortable, and
chairs are positioned around the outdoor fireplace for a cozy gathering.
The owners also offer towels and chairs to take to the beach. We've
recommended it to many of our Northern California friends, and they've
all loved it. Long live The Tides!"

My partner and I were traveling with my nephew and
came across The Tides. It was very convenient to the beaches and Downtown,
had a terrific salt water pool, and had a good supply of boogie boards,
beach umbrellas and chairs for guests to use. Our room had a kitchenette
and a beautiful view of the hills. We had a terrific stay and would
recommend it to other travelers looking for a less pricey option that
is close to everything." --DT, Los Angeles, CA
Rooms were great...lovely furnished with either
carpet or antique rugs..and interesting themes for each room. Our
ground floor room has a lovely kitchenette. The pool was gorgeous,
and I love deep pools!...had the area much to ourselves each afternoon.
You can walk down the hill to everything, places to eat shopping,
"Hidden treasure in beautiful,
Our charming room was very clean and even
had a fireplace. Great saltwater pool with plenty of chairs. (didn't
have to sit right next to other guests). Free parking eliminates tipping
a valet and I like keeping an eye on my car. Last but not least was
the BED. Not too hard--not too soft--Just Right. It really is as great
as it looks on their website." --SF, Pittsburg, PA
We stayed at the Tides Inn for 5 nights and thought it was
fabulous! From the moment I phoned to book the room (with Catherine)
to the day we left, the service was great. We had a room with a kitchenette
and it was great--spacious and light. I can't tell you how comfy the
bed/pillows are! The pool area is lovely. There is also an outdoor
lounge area with an open log fire--gorgeous. There is also a big BBQ
which probably gets used in the summer months. The maid service is
also very good. The hotel is within walking distance of bars and restaurants
and right across the road is access to the beach. Laguna Beach has
a main beach but it's also full of small coves.We really did not want
to leave. It was so relaxing. We would love to come back again someday."

"Thank you for the great view!
Also the little
extras like the library, board games, towels, beach chairs, and kind
conversations. We had an amazing girls' weekend...Laguna is lovely!
Thanks!" --The ladies from Arizona
