I am a frequent visitor to this motel. It has never disappointed. When booking a room, speak to Anderson and he will help you to pick the room that best suit your needs. I do not mind the traffic noise. And it is not all that bad. You will not find any other property in this general location for this...

Our room has extra chairs and plenty of light for reading. To our delight there was a mini kitchenette. Walking across the street took us to Heisler Park for beautiful views of the ocean and the many coves. We found the staff friendly and helpful. We would recommend the Tides.

We were looking for a boutique hotel in Laguna Beach and chose The Tides based on TripAdvisor reviews. It was a poor decision. I'm wondering who writes these reviews? The...

The Tides is an older motel located in north Laguna Beach. Our first night we had a room right on the street which we found dark and damp however we were moved to a nicer room the rest of our stay. I believe it was room 108 which is close to the heated salt water pool. The staff are excellent...

Accommodation in Laguna Beach is expensive and I think Tides offers good value for money. The room booked was small and dingy - no window in bedroom area. When we asked if we could up grade to a larger room the staff could not have been more helpful. We stayed in 2 different rooms both were spacious well decorated and...
