I went over to make room reservations, but when I arrived on the front porch, I was hit with the most intense stale cigarette/tobacco smell I've ever experienced -- and I am an ex-smoker. When you can smell a building's cigarette stench OUTSIDE the building, you know it's bad. I hear the owners are lovely, but they really must do...

The most important thing to know about this inn is that the owner smokes, so the entire inn, bedrooms and all, reek of cigarettes. I was quite upset that it wasn't advertised as a smoking establishment. I now see that there are other reviews that mention this, but unfortunately, I had not seen them ahead of time. Had we not...

We rented the most expensive room $200 with tax. For $200 I expected shampoo, conditioner and at least two bars of soap in the bathroom. The only thing we got was 1 bar of soap and 1 washcloth. I told the InnsKeeper, who is NOT nice at all, that I was vegetarian and was it possible to get a veg....

I am sad to give this review of when we stayed in August of 2011. The owners of the Breakers and the Tides Inn are friends --- and if you stay at the Breakers drinks will be served at the Tides Inn. I thought both owners were kind, low key and accomodating. The Breakers is interesting in structure. The owners...

Not worth the money to stay there. TVs need to be updated. A lot of work to the house. Still need be done. And it's not a made to order breakfast. They make what they wanna make. I made reservations for 125. Check out the charge the 135. It's a bad example of a bed and breakfast place.

I expected so much more from this place after reading the other reviews and was sorely disappointed. The house had a funny smell (wet dog + cookies) and didn't look at all like it received too much TLC (bulbs were missing from the chandelier in the landing, and from our room lights, there was dust everywhere and visible cobwebs). Even...

Excellent place to stay! This was my first time staying at a Bed & Breakfast. I have to say it really exceeded my expectations. The Innkeeper was very pleasant and helpful at all times. I will definitely be staying here again!

I chose to stay at The Breakers, the "sister" B&B just across the road from The Tides. Although The Tides was very nice, I loved The Breakers. This was one of the best B&B experiences I've ever had. It is a great location, an easy couple of minutes walk to the beach and good dining. You feel absolutely safe walking...

My friend and I had a great girls’ getaway at The Tides Inn. A few days before we headed to Colonial Beach, I called to confirm my reservation and ask if we could leave a few items inside the inn since we’d be arriving before check-in. We were informed that there was no one staying in our room the night...
