We really enjoyed our stay at The Tides. Folly Beach is a nice, oceanfront community in South Carolina. Our son works for the city, so to celebrate Thanksgiving and our 39th anniversary, we decided to try The Tides. The staff was very pleasant (and very helpful to our son in arranging a nice anniversary celebration for us), the room was...

My family and several others stayed at the Tides for several days prior to a wedding in Charleston. The hotel was really nice, but the staff were great! Especially "Jay" who not only helped with our baggage, but also gave us a rundown on where to eat, shop, and go while we were there also answering any questions we had...

Live about 40 minutes from Folly. Have lived here 26 years and only been to Folly a handful of times for a few hours (to watch my son surf or visit someone who was staying there). Decided to spend 2 nights with family and we had a blast. Rented a golf cart for the day (cheap) and scoured the whole...

Very nice & clean. Staff was very helpful & pleasant. Starbucks coffee was on-site. Heated pool & wifi. Doors to balcony did not lock. Very dog friendly. I've never stayed at a location with so many furry friends around. All the restaurants nearby were also furry friendly. Beachside bar as well as inside bar & restaurant. We liked the cabana...

This hotel attempted a renovation that doesn't quite cut it. Mildew in the bathroom, stains on the chairs and bedspreads, curtains hanging off the rod and dirty carpet. Beach hotels take a beating, but the rooms here are pretty bad. Beach bar is cute, inside bar and restaurant is only ok. Honestly I've stayed at Marriott Courtyards that are nicer....

I gave four because I felt like the room we stayed in was a little run down. We have to request microwave in order to have one in our room. Towels resupply was inadequate the next day, but they were accommodating after requesting. Overall, my family has a great time. The hotel is close to small town restaurants and shops....

The bar overlooking the ocean is a must visit. During the colder months they have propane fire pits. It's a great place to go for a drink. They also offer food from the Blu restaurant. We normally visit Folly Beach at least once a year and we always go to this venue.

Pros: Great staff, clean rooms, great views, great location, and great bar. They were great about early check in because we were late getting to an event. Sitting out on the deck by the fires at Blu was just wonderful. Everyone there seemed to really care if we were enjoying our vacation. Really great place to reconnect. Cons: No hot...
