Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

Stayed here for three nights after some business travel and it was the perfect affordable hideaway in Laguna Beach. Yes it was during the heavy LA rain but it still really worked out. Wifi is pretty good at the hotel but I wouldn't recommend it for zoom or Teams video calls, it was a bit more spotty then. Location is fantastic, easy access to the walking paths and beaches. About a 10-15 minute walk downtown and right by some of the free trolley stops too. And about a 4 minute walk to the grocery store. Bed is incredibly comfortable, shower is small, bathroom is very small. I also didn't have hot water while there which...isn't great in January, even in California. That is the only thing that would really keep me from going back. It is located right on the PCH so even if you are further back in the property, you will hear car noise. So be aware of that. To me it wasn't disruptive but if you are closer to the road, I could see that being loud. There are cars going 24/7. The rooms also have a small kitchenette, no cooktop but microwave and small fridge. There are also limited items in the kitchenette to use so if you require more items, bring them with you. Staff was super friendly and nice. Overall, I had a good stay and would stay again but during a time of year when not having hot water isn't a big deal.

We were overwhelmed by the charm and character of this wonderful place. We were welcomed and given all the information we needed to help us have the best time in Laguna and has a wide range of equipment to loan for the beach.The pool area was great and the room was light and bright and spacious. It was quiet and we had two great nights sleep. The location couldn’t be better for both beach and downtown restaurants. When we return to Laguna we would choose to come Bach here. The owner clearly works incredibly hard to make this place unique and special.

Was really pleased that hubby was glad with my choice of stay in Laguna Beach. Clean. Efficient for everything we needed. Near enough to the main shops, restaurants and of course the beach. Sadly, the pool was being refurbished, but it was not needed when we brought rain with us!

. . . my favorite "go to" lodging for multiple reasons - host hospitality; cleanliness of room(s) and common grounds; local history of the Laguna "charmer," location to "all things Laguna Beach," and my personal preference supporting small businesses . . . con una sonrisa Tony

We loved our stay the Tides! The front desk could not be more helpful, the pool area with fireplace was charming, and the room was comfortable and super clean! We won’t stay anywhere else in Laguna Beach! We will be back! Thanks for making our trip the best!

We love staying at The Tides each summer! The hotel has a great salt water pool, the beach is across the street. The hotel is close to stores, art galleries, and restaurants. The Innkeeper, Anderson, is friendly and helpful throughout our stay!

The good: great service, nice people from booking to check-in to check-out. Quiet room (213). Clean. Bad: dip in bed, old scuffed furniture, no microwave, not updated. 319.00 for 1 night. Wow. I know that during the pageant prices go up but . . .

We had Room 109. Ok size room with a small fridge, microwave and Keurig. Also a very small closet with too many hotel hangers so ours didn't fit. Bed and pillows were comfy. Room was clean but needs paint and maintenance. Painted furniture had stains and marks. Walk in shower with a bit of mold, loose towel bar. A very small shelf in the bathroom for storage. AC worked just fine. Large tv. We picked this room to avoid road noise and that worked great. We didn't hear footsteps from room above until daytime hours. Parking is super tight, especially with many guests having suv's. Staff was great - super helpful and friendly. They will get you buckets of ice if you need. Hotel has loaner beach chairs and other stuff. Great location for walking to Pageant/FOA, Sawdust, Art-a-fair, and even into town. Awesome park with nice path just down the street. Close to a trolley stop, though you do have to change trolleys if you're going farther south of town (i.e. Surf and Sand, Ritz). We did not use our car once during our stay. Our friends in Room 105 had issue with loud neighbors in the middle of the night because they had an adjoining door. Two blocks to Urthh, one of our favorite dining/coffee places.

Great staff and great location, We so enjoyed our stay at the tides at Laguna Beach. We booked 2 rooms, one with a kitchen; they where both perfect! The staff was friendly and informative. If you are looking for a place to stay in Laguna Beach this is it!
