From the friendly staff to the ocean front rooms, this hotel gets 5 stars from us! This was our first visit to the Charleston area. Because of the SEWE event, finding a hotel under $400 a night in Charleston was impossible. We took a chance on the Tides, and boy were we happy! Folly beach is a 20 minute drive...

As escapees from the Northern snow, my husband and I wanted to go to a beach town. Even though it was early in the season, it was warm enough to walk on the beach. I think that staying there pre-season made our stay more enjoyable, as we didn't have to fight the crowds. We enjoyed our stay at the Tides...

Had spent the weekend in Charleston but wanted to hit the beach- unfortunately it was a gray and windy day, but brunch at the restaurant was pleasant. Had a large buffet spread of food for great price- also a menu if you're feeling specific.

Clean rooms, very polite staff, clean outside pool & common areas. Great value & location. Walking distance to restaurants, entertainment, fishing pier and beach shops. Only complaint....would be nice if balcony had enough room for outside sitting.

Recently visited Tides it was a last minute decision to stay at the beach for a girls weekend. The price was right and the staff was lovely. We loved Michael. He made us smile. When we needed clean towels or glasses one call and they were at our door within 10 minutes. Loved that we could walk to everything. And...

I live in Charleston, but wanted to stay at Folly beach with a few friends for a quick "staycation". It was the perfect place to enjoy the close restaurants and nightlife, and you could not beat the view! The room was clean and provided a nice atmosphere. They had renovations going on in the lobby, but it did not interfere...
