Small, not well appointed, Don't get Queen Bed
My husband and I stayed here in June 2022 for an anniversary trip. It is very close to the beach and had free parking. That's where the positives stop. The queen bed room we had was in a corner with a single window in the bathroom facing the alley. The furnishings were old and tired. I had a plant stand for a nightstand. The closet door could not be opened if you wanted in the bathroom. The one dresser was in the closet with a TV on it. The other furnishings looked like they were from a tired thrift store. The hotel does have larger rooms with kitchens, so maybe those are better, and obviously more spacious. There was little interaction with staff. They have ice in a cooler in the small office. When I arrived, the office person was on the phone and didn't really answer any questions. It was really disappointing that the room was so small and uncomfortable on what was supposed to be a romatic get away for our 20th anniversary. We made the best of it, but I would not recommend this hotel.

Fab Stay
Another great stay at The Tides. We had a great room (105), free parking and wifi. But it's the location that really sells this place for us. Always found it very clean and the staff very friendly. Fab value for money and would definitely stay again.

Skip this hotel
The woman at the front desk was amazing and friendly. After that it all went down hill. When we were in the office a guest came in because they had plumbing issues and couldn't use their bathroom. There are no public restrooms available for guests to use. Our shower would not turn on, the sink only ran cold water and the toilet would only flush half the time. When we brought these concerns to the manager. He checked and said everything worked fine....NOT TRUE. I am a local LB resident and I will NEVER put another visitor there again.
