Tides Beach Club is a wonderful summer retreat. Beautiful hotel with a quiet beach right across the street. Being off of route 1, it is away from the summer crowds of southern Maine but close all the town activities of the southern beaches. The hotel has lovely decor, landscaping, and a nice restaurant. It's a bit pricey but worth the...

Goose Rocks Beach has always been one of my favorite spots in Maine, but I've previously stayed in Kennebunkport because the Victorian style of the "old" Tides Inn did not appeal to me. During a visit to the area last year I saw the amazing transformation into the stylish, bright and comfortable Tides Beach Club and decided I finally needed...

Not only does the Tides have "the" location on the beach, the building immediately relaxes the visitor instantly. The comfortable open first floor, with couches, tables, restaurant and bar makes one feel you are at home. The room are all nice with views of the ocean or facing it. The natural tides that hit the beach are 8 to 10...

The Tides is a special place located across the street from Goose Rocks Beach. From the outside it looks like a large New England style bed and breakfast, however upon opening the front door I was fully surprised. The place is lively and cool, with a large lobby bar/restaurant and beach vibe decor throughout. The rooms are really nice, clean,...
