Right on the beach, excellent breakfast, friendly and helpful staff. Rooms very well maintained. Bikes, kayaks and paddle boards all complimentary. Very fast wifi even around the pool. Walk to restaurants and shops takes ten minutes What's not to like?

The hotel is very charming and clean in a very privileged location near to a commercial street with a lot of restaurant options. The rooms are big and beautiful with espresso machine, good pool, free wi-fi and parking.. I recommend!

It is a nice hotel with a ot of charme. Liliana, the Hotel Manager has the understanding to feel like in heaven. Looking forward to our next stay there. I like to use the kajaks and bikes. Perfect is the short walking distance to the beach. You can do barefoot.

My wife and I were married in Ft. Lauderdale in 1976 . . we decided to travel back in time to where we met, and where we got married. We chose The Tides Inn because it was small, quaint, directly on the beach and central to our old "stomping" ground. The staff was wonderful, the room was clean and neat... More

As always, Liliana and the staff at The Tides were wonderful. I have been returning for this reason for years and will continue to do so. The only bad thing this trip was no fault of The Tides or Staff, it was all Hurricane Mathew's fault that my stay was shortened to only five wonderful nights, not 13.

By far the best place we have stayed when visiting FLL. Everything is high end and luxurious. The Tides was impeccable when it comes to cleanliness. The location is perfect. The intimacy and size of The Tides adds to the charm. Hurricane Matthew cut our trip short. But Lilliana, made sure we were well taken care of. It's refreshing to... More

We travel all over, and have stayed in hundreds of hotels. We are locals to Fort Lauderdale, and this little gem of a hotel is by far the best in the greater Fort Lauderdale area.
