I was in town for my 50th high school reunion, so The Tides and all the beach attractions nearby have a place in my heart (not that I ever stayed there before :) ). I booked one of the smallest rooms which nevertheless had a small refrigerator in it, a nice touch (no coffee maker though).The clerk who checked me...

My son had a soccer game that ended late and another one that was going to be the next morning in Brooklyn... Driving all the way back east not an option. It was Columbus Day weekend and everything was booked and ridiculously priced over $900!! When we walked in the place was nice clean and the staff was very friendly......

doesn't see the need to renovate. Not sure if I should review rooms first or the amenities. As far as the rooms are concerned they are all dated, the early 90's would be apropo. The beds are uncomfortable, old and squeaky. The linens are also old and used. The furniture and decor are in similar condition. No coffee machine, iron...

I had to stay here for work because all the other hotels were booked up. There was a used towel already hanging on the bathroom door, the attatched restaurant doesn't serve beer, and the pool closes at 6:30 pm, even in summer. The tennis courts and playground are in complete disrepair, and any pictures that they are claiming to be...

a few friends and I came here this weekend for some beach time, and we were not disappointed. we got a non-smoker room on the ground floor facing the ocean with 2 double beds, an extra cot, and no kitchenette. aside from a slight musty smell coming from the carpet, the room seemed very clean. the bathroom looked newly renovated,...

Good location right across from the beach, next door to an amusement park like area. Walking distance to bars and restaurants. This place would be terrific if the owners would do some simple maintenance and upkeep. Instead I'm pretty sure that they are able to simply ride out their location and and make their money.

I'm giving this motel 4 stars because it has a Great location. Right across the street from one of my favorite beaches on the north shore. It is NOT a 4 star motel as far as amenities. It is old and outdated and the rooms do not have any extras. It is how ever clean, quiet, affordable and in a...

Stayed here two nights while on business out of Hempstead Harbor. The company booked this as the cheapest rate in the area. You get what you pay for. Small room, poorly lit, and poorly appointed. Dark dirty dingy carpet and stucco interior walls. The TV was an old 19 inch tube with a distinct purple hue and blurry. No refridgerator,...

We needed a place to sleep as we were in the area for an event that had us busy all weekend. We booked this as it was close. It is your typical 1950's era motor lodge - very kitschy. The staff were very friendly and accommodating. The room....well for our $165+ a night, left a lot to be desired. It...
